It's not easy finding a spot in Lanzarote that's secluded and special, but Kalufa knows exactly how to make this happen. The guys that run the place are nice, honest, and simple people who love to surf and enjoy sharing their passion with others. I was there for two weeks and had a blast. Roberto, you rock! Can't wait to... More
