We learned about technique, safety and now we understand the waves better - but most importantly we got excited about surfing and we can't wait to return (for longer).
I would recommend lessons with Toni to anyone, regardless of age or physical preparation, begginer or more advanced... Or If you just need some excitement for life.
Toni and Spela - thank you for all the good energy and hospitality, we can't wait for more 🌊🏄‍♀️

Toni is one of those people that is so passionate that you could listen to him for hours. I was a very bad student, honestly. But he was so patient and always smiling, joking. Without him I'm sure I would have hated surfing. But because of him I actually like it. I would love to go back to famara and take some more lessons with him. And I'm sure I will. Thanks Toni for sharing your passion and for your smile.

I had 2 lessons with Toni during December and I was immediately impressed by the effort he takes in making the lessons the best possible experience for us. He will make sure the lesson takes place at the time when the waves is at its best, with safety the highest priority. He is patient and a good teacher. I highly recommend him!

I spent one week in Famara and had really good time surfing with Waterman Lanzarote. Coach Toni and his family are very welcome and friendly. I absolutely loved the surf lessons. They were very instructive, and the fun was also not missing. I learned a lot!! It doesn't matter if you are beginner or not, Toni will make sure you will feel safe and give you the best surf experience. He is always in a good mood for any sport activity. Skate lesson was fun too :)

Thank you, I will sure come again!!

The Waterman Lanzarote surf school is the best choice if you want to get a quality and personal approach for your surf lessons (not just being one of a dozen other students like in some other schools). Tony and Špela will provide you with the knowledge of how to get the best from surfing and to enjoy it. They are very open, helpful and friendly, so you will have fun with them and feel safe for sure. They also have really good equipment. I got my first experience of how to surf on a reef with Tony and it was amazing. I felt confident because of his support and his tips. Thank you, Tony & Špela!

I was surfing with few different surf schools before, but The best place and best instructors were Waterman Toni and Špela in Famara, who are very welcome and friendly. Famara is great for all surfing levels. In our group were first timers, kids and those who surfed before and wanted to learn more, Toni and Špela were great giving us all tips and technical instructions. I learn a lot. There was also no crowd in the water. Before and after session we did exercises and streching on the beach. Me and my friend were surfing there twice, third time we rent boards and went alone. I enjoyed my time there very much and would gladly come back for longer time to surf with Waterman, learn more and enjoy Famara. They also rent a nice cozy bungalow. Hvala za odlične surf ure! Pozdrav iz sončne strani Alp.

The second time we have been to Famara and we have taken again lesson with Toni at Waterman Lanzarote. No change versus first time, amazing experience. Toni will give you the right advice according to your level in order to progress while still having lot of fun. If the condition are not so good, don´t hesitate to try the SUP. We thought that would be boring and we will finally buy our own inflatable SUP! If it´s possible, try the tour in Arrecife. Thanks again for the nice time and see you around. Alex & Patrik.

We had a great time Surfing with Waterman Lanzarote - as it is written in other reviews already Toni and Spela are not only very competent teachers but make it also a very personal experience. After starting to learn surfing this summer on Fuerteventura, I was looking for a surf school with small groups and fair prices. I followed the good feedback on tripadvisor and so found Waterman - now I can only really can confirm all the existing positive reviews. My two kids (12 and 14 years) and I were surfing 4 days (out of 6 we were on Lanzarote) and really we could improve a lot - but also enjoyed the small group and personal experience. Both instructors are very dedicated to the customer’s needs - looking that the surf experience fits to the weather conditions and the personal timetable. So if you do not need a group of 20 people and a surf teacher showing of all the time but you rather want to improve in a small group and like a teacher giving you the personal feedback you need to improve - than Waterman is the school to choose- by the way I never wrote a comment before but I really feel they deserve it and so I joined here today.

If you ask me, this is The place to go. The island itself is magical, Famara still unspoiled by "main stream" tourism...
But being there is not enough - you need to have an "insider" to tell you where, what, when and if you're in to it - to teach you how to surf, kite surf, how to SUP and equally important - how to enjoy life. Spela, Toni, Val and Mia will give you a lesson in "life priorities" and if you take only part of it back home you will be a different man/woman. If you already have that in you - you will have a great time with them. They are great teachers, patient and professional, taking special care of safety but also about having fun, and most important they are good people.
We are a small family with a 3yr old girl and we stayed there for 2 weeks. Our stay was even more special because we stayed in the original Mongolian Waterman yurta. You might ask what is Mongolian tent doing in Atlantic ocean. Well - who cares!!! It is amazing to sleep in it with a view towards the open night sky. Equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay (big bed, couch, kitchen, bathroom, sea and sky view) it is a perfect option and it is situated literally only 2 seconds from the surf school.
Will go back for sure certainly, this time I'm thinking two months instead 2 weeks.
Well, these are my two cents, or pennies if you prefer :)

Toni is a great teacher, really clear with his information and takes time to explain. We had a surf lesson which gave us pointers to work on and also tried kite surfing for the first time. Toni went through safety information and had a small kite for us to practice handling with before going on to full size. When we go back we will definitely be contacting Toni.
