I have done 7 classes and I definitely recommend this school. Not only I improved my surfing but also learnt a lot about this sport - every lunch break you get a talk about something related to surfing. I have tried surfing in other countries but this school and teachers were definitely the best.

I have been coached in this school for 3 weeks with some previous surfing experience, but still as beginner and I'm leaving it as an intermediate(-ish) one, and I for sure catched the best waves in my life so far, which wouldn't have been possible without Tim and Jaime passion and dedication. I have known this school through their YouTube channel (Surf Insight) and they are the main reason why I visited Famara (and not the other way around). This was the 4th place where I've been teached how to surf, but it's the first time that I've been *coached* in this sport. The level of professionalism and technical knowledge by Tim and the Jamie is complete out of scale compared to my previous experiences: they put safety first, pay attention to the tinest details, create team spirit, equally follow all students (without leaving experienced surfers by themselves), often explain surf with scientific data during launch lesson and never have more than 5 students per instructor. These are things that they always missed from my previous experiences and which made the difference during my staying. I have no doubt that I'll come back.

Quite simply the most exceptional surf coaching experience I've ever had. I started surfing 4 years ago aged 40. Having surfed regularly round Europe and Indonesia since, I've struggled to find great surf coaching. Being a late-starter and as a career sports coach myself, I really need, and really appreciate, good instructional input. Despite conditions being difficult and limited wave counts, the value and input we received was immense. When it was too hard to get out-back we learnt turtle rolls, paddle techniques, safety, jump-ups, stance, balance and turning movements. Not only was the instruction clear and easy to understand but we spent time drilling movements on the beach to get the feel of it before practicing in the water. Thank you guys, simply awesome! We'll see you in Sri Lanka...or back in Lanzarote!

Had a great time as my first surfing experience with a 3-day beginner course. The coaches Tim, Jamie and Claudio were great. I definitely recommend it and it is a shame i could not stay for longer!

Absolutely brilliant time with Jamie and Tim. These guys are the real deal with their surfing coaching a cut way above the other schools in the area. Go for it, you won't regret it.
