We came as complete beginners, and learnt so much by the end of the 5 days. Tim, Jamie and Paddy are excellent instructors - patient and very helpful! You go at your own pace, but with their support you progress much faster than you expected when starting out. What really impressed me was the willingness to help even after your... More

Completed 4 days beginner surfing with surf school Lanzarote last week. It was a great week learning, not just about being able to stand up, but also about the many factors that you should be aware of including the tides, wetsuits, and boards to name a few. Tim, Jamie and Paddy are great instructors and do a great job to... More

Returned last week from our 5th trip to SSL the first one without the kids. We hadn't been for 7 years, can't think why we stayed away for so long. Fantastic tuition from Paddy, Jamie and Tim. Lovely apartment. Famara's charming and hasn't changed. See you again soon SSL hopefully we will both be a bit fitter! Paul & Kim,... More

I spent 4 days being taught by Paddy and Jamie, both the guys were excellent and made the whole experience really fun. They have an in depth knowledge on all aspects of surfing and the sea. They were very good at spotting everyones weaknesses and constantly coached these areas until we started to get it right. Good range of boards... More

What I liked the most is that we got not just a good training, but the time for our breaks was used to explaining us all the things why surfing is happening, starting from the wave creation and ending with moon and sun influence on water level. Service was very good, transport from the hotel in the morning and back... More

Thanks again to Tim and his crew for another great week of surf! We came back after more than one year to find the usual outstanding experience of surfing all together in Famara with the best coaching team one could ever ask for. Not only they have a great team but also put enthusiasm in every detail and occasion....from the... More

I have just returned after three days of surfing with Paddy and Dan. Great instructors, from zero I learned a lot and would definitely recommend the guys to anybody thinking of learning to surf. Interesting to note that most of my group had been with the school before which says it all, so all I have to do now is... More

We visited as a mixed group with varying abilities, and couldn't have been more impressed. Tim and his son Jamie, along with Paddy and Dan the instructors were amazing. They ran us through a full warm up and safety briefing every day, the boards were immaculate and they always had a variety for us to try out. The accommodation was... More

Just felt compelled to write a quick review about this surf school. I went as a solo traveler over St Patrick's weekend (March 17th 2015), I was made very welcome, had great fun and most importantly had great tuition from Tim and the gang. I was slotted in with a good bunch of people from all over Europe. I went... More
