      An amazing introduction to surfing!!
      This is truly an amazing surf school. All the instructors had a lovely vibe, tremendous patience and skill and buckets of enthusiasm We didn’t realise that we got about 30 high quality hi-res images of the three of us as well. Quite simply brilliant!!! Excellent for beginners and people (like me) needing a refresher. Remember tho that no-one can control the sea - so you get whatever waves are available on the day you book. Although the school does flex it’s start times so you get the best of the conditions. Highly recommend. Thanks again Kasperi and team ❤️

      Fantastic!
      My 12-year-old son had a great day learning to surf. The instructors are the best. So much fun, knowledgeable, and made us as parents feel like our kid was in good hands. My son will be back to do the 3-day course on our next trip. Highly recommended!!!

      Best Surf school ever
      Since 6 years now we have taken some surf classes every year, the team of this surf school is absolutely amazing. You learn a lot even from day one on and it is always a lot of fun. The teachers are very professional and taking care of anyone in the group, also you get video analysis and photos from the day! We can absolutely recommend this great place, Ersin & Martina

      Great surf school
      My daughter did a 2 day course. Excellent English speaking instructors. Very friendly and attentive. Put everyone at their ease and inspired confidence. Provided packed lunch and bottled water (environmentally friendly reuseable bottles). Also provided wet suits and rash guards. Lovely touch putting a range of photos online which can be downloaded free of charge - my daughter is delighted to have some great pictures as a memento. Great value for money particularly with the online booking discount.

      Surf courses day to day on demand
      We were at the place for surfing lessons. I must say, we really loved it and we managed "surfing", if it looks like so but it provides us everything I believe to continue on our own after some classes (3 at the moment). Nice guys, flexible and VERY patient. Just do what they say and everything will be alright. Thank you Jordan and Samir (and Anika I believe).

      best surf adventure ever!!
      It makes a lot of fun and the teachers give correct and nice tips to you about what you should do. The surfteachers make videoanalyses and you can see the things that you did good or bad. In addition to this they make cool pictures of you and you can download them. Also very helpful is the skating that you do sometimes before surfing to learn how to turn on the surfboard. This is the best surfschool I have ever attended!

      Amazing surfschool
      The instructors managed to find the exact right balance between giving you information about safety, teaching you new skills and most importantly fun. They adapt to the individual levels and needs of there students and they are great at working with teens. The four days we took were the best sportive experience in my life! The whole school is just amazing! Thank you so much guys, we'll be back soon!

      Most amazing surf school!
      We booked two days with this school to learn to surf, and we stood up on our third attempt already! The way the instructors teach you the basics in a classroom setting, then have you practice the moves on the beach, then push you onto your first waves, cheer you on and applaud when you are doing well, is just wonderful. The groups are kept small, 5 students per instructor max, and they teach and coach specifically to you. Their constant feedback and tips make you progress super fast. And the instructor’s enthusiasm just makes it super fun. They also have a photographer come out, and they get you the pictures for free! Can’t repeat it enough, this school is highly highly recommended.

      Best school ever!
      If you want to learn how to surf, this school is the best adress! The instructors are so cool and supportive and they give you a lot of motivation all the time so you can really learn very fast. They also give you a lot of new knowledge so you better understand the sea, the waves and the wind. I would recommend them 100%.

    A great experience from first contacting Surf Canaries through surfing to relaxing in the beach post surf. Danny and the team were fantastic offering really good instruction, combined with bucket loads of enthusiasm, that ensured the whole group managed to catch waves and stand on the board. Would definitely go back.

    Took a couple of lessons last september. I’ve had a great time then. Instructors immediately notice what you are having trouble with and at what level you are. They are very well trained and give you personal feedback. I went back in June and took another lesson, because the first time was a great experience.
    If you’re learning to surf and you get stuck at some point, book a lesson with Surf Canaries. They will help you a lot. Real eye-opener for me.

    I decided to go for this surf school because their website offers a lot of information about what's going to happen and when, what to bring with you, what to expect. It made a very good first impression and turns out it was a good decision to go with them. I was lucky enough to be in the water with 3 instructors of the team, Danny, Jordan & Samir. These guys are amazing!
    Very passionate about surfing, good teachers, good vibes, a lot of fun. I had never done any surfing before but they're extremely skilled in teaching so I had my first moments of success very soon. I definitely want to go there again.

    A great experience with super guidance from the crew. Everything explained very understandable and always improvement notes on the technique. It’s worth it! However, no master has fallen from the sky and I booked two more days on site (with discount).

    I had lessons at Surf Canaries in two ocasions last year. The instructors are doing a great job and they are very supportive!!! After a couple of group lessons I decided to have individual ones. Fine! But I was to trustful about the price, which is almost the triple from what other surf-schools (f.e. Las Palmas) charge for the same thing.
    Stupid me, to not double check this. And a huge shame for the management!!!

    Hello Christian, First of all, thank you for your feedback. With this being our first 3 star review from someone who has actually been on a course with us, we obviously take this very seriously and would like to explain our pricing system here. With offering private classes, we have to count that our instructors will not be available for group classes. Let's say for arguments sake that we would have to have 4 people less (our group class ratios are 1:5 Instructor to student) on our group course whilst having a private course in progress. Counting with the lowest price of 49e (the discounted online price) that comes to 196e (4 students on a group class). Because we are often close to capacity due to our smaller instructor to student ratio, we have to take into account this loss whilst calculating our pricing so that we can offer the private classes. When you look at it like this, our price for a private class of 152e is surely reasonable. Our prices are higher than other surf schools. This is due to a number of factors, not least our ratio which is considerably lower than most other surf schools ratios. Our prices are published on our website and fixed. Most people find them good value for money, many would prefer our group classes but if you prefer to have one of our professionals with you 100% of the time, the private or semi-private class is a great option. From talking with our instructors, it is clear that it has always been a pleasure to take you surfing with us and hopefully you will continue to enjoy surfing! All the best Team Surf Canaries

    I did a one day lesson on 9th December and it was absolutely amazing !!! I highly recommend this surf school, the whole team is amazing, I only remember Fran’s name.

    They were all so welcoming and fun and felt very safe out in the waves. It was my first ever time surfing and I was standing up a few times.

    The photos are such a lovely touch and great to remember the experience.

    Definitely hit this place up for a morning of fun 🏄‍♂️

    My son and I took the one-day surf class and had a great time! The instructor did a great job to explain the basics. After warm-up and short practice on land we were hitting the waves, and it did not take long before we could stand on the board :)
    The class is done in small groups and away from the crowds.
    The wind picked up quite a bit during the afternoon, but that just added to the experience and we had a lot of fun. I would definitely recommend Surf Canaries!

    First time surfing for me. I knew it wasn't going to be easy, and it wasn't. The instructors really cheered you on and were helpful in getting you going. Clear instructions upfront before heading to the beach. Whilst in the water, they guide you what to do when. Peddle, peddle, peddle, up! If you manage to ride a wave, they celebrate with some fun yelling. Prepare for alot of crashing and sore muscles afterwards. Worth it though!

    I booked a one day surfing experience for my partner's birthday and it was definitely a great idea!
    We both never surfed before, so the knowledge and help of Samir ( our instructor) was extremely important to make this a great experience.
    Samir is an excellent instructor who can explain with simplicity the basics of surfing even to inexperienced people like us. He clearly loves his job and he transmit this excitement to you.

    The school also gives you water and a snack and this shows how much they care about their customer.

    100% will reccomend!
