I booked myself on the 5 day surfing course for a quick pre-uni trip to Lanzarote. Great people, great weather, and a great experience. I'd recommend Tim and the rest of the instructors at a heart-beat. You get plenty of one-on-one time, you can learn at your own pace, and you get the perfect balance of practical and theory learning.... More

Highly recommend this. This was our (my 14yr old son and I) 2nd time with the school and once again it was brilliant. The coaching/instructor team you have are great especially Ollie who gave me the encouragement and confidence to paddle out - amazing. It was my husband's first time & I worried he would not enjoy it - but... More

If you want to learn surfing this is the right place to do so. The school has great organisation. You will see a lot of other school on Playa de Famara ( beach where your lessons take place). What makes this school better than the rest of the village are a few things: less people and 1-3 competent instructors means... More

Our 11 and 12 year old, and my husband spent a day learning how to surf, and they had the best day. They all managed to get up on the boards very early on and learnt so much information that will help them with all future surfing. Ollie and Dan were amazing instructors who had everything under control, had so... More

Extremely professional team. Focused in teaching both the theory and practice while following the individual needs of each student in the group. Nobody stands alone, everybody is special.Thank you Tim, Dun, Ollie and Jamie for the wonderful time and the knowledge accumulated under your coaching. With you guys, surfing was never more easier.

A kind of coaching I haven't encountered before. Even though we were in a group out there, Tim managed to keep an eye on everybody, paddling over and giving feedback and detailed advises after nearly every wave I rode. I got very useful technical help to overcome certain difficulties I've had for a long time. Many surf school out there... More

I had 3 days out there with this school and they got me standing up on my very first lesson. The first lesson is pretty much one on one so you get plenty on advice where you can improve and what you might be doing wrong. I had a 3 day course and had to book an extra day as... More
