I rented a surf board from Calima Surf two years ago, the staff were very friendly and professional and prices great. We will be back in Lanzarote this October and want to take some surf lessons. Calima was the clear choice here! After inquiring, they got back to me within 1 hour!

I've been to a number of surf schools around the world, and I can honestly say that Calima is the best one. The teachers really know what they're doing, and the equipment is top notch. The two surf houses they have are beautiful and the overall atmosphere among surfers and non-surfers is just GREAT. Prices are low for what you... More

This is a really well organised surf school. Classes are cheap, materials are good and teachers know a lot! Not to say Famara is one of the most wonderful places of Lanzarote, and the island and people itself it's one of the few last jewels of Europe.

Caleta de Famara is a very quiet and truly local small village. If you are looking to escape touristic crowded areas this is the right choice. It has an amazing long beach where the surf lessons take place, some hiking areas nearby, few but very good restaurants and just a few shops with basic stuff. There are many surf schools... More

School and place are simply amazing. Been with them already twice for a week time to learn to surf. They came along with people super easy - whatever your mood, vibe. It' pure pleasure to spend your time with them. Expect constant smile on your face during lessons and afterwards. Highly recommend to anyone.
