Surfing lessons Southern Spain


Planning a holiday to Andalusia, hoping to try my hand at surfing. Have found a couple of surf schools but can't seem to find reviews, if anyone has been to Oceano or El Palmar surf schools your reviews would be really appreciated! I am an early 30's single English speaking traveller.

Any contributions much appreciated! xx

I've been by the El Palmar school - set up in a little shack. The beach there is great and it's known for its waves.

Tarifa is another place you can learn to surf.

Conil as a base seems to me a good choice. Did you look at : http://www.facebook.com/oceano.surf.camps

I read that in July they did some surfing at La Caleta bay in Cadiz - one of my favourite spots.

no surfer me :-(

Thanks for your recommendation. We go to La Caleta in Cadiz for our Canoe routes around the old city walls in Cadiz. All of our surfing lessons in the Summer are held on the beaches of Conil. Oceano Surf School has now got ASI Academy of Surfing Instructors Accredited Surf School.

Oceano Surf School is a great place to learn to surf.

Can anyone advise on whether 35 yr old female solo traveller beginner surfing would be better in Trafalgar surf in conil de la Frontera or Red Star Surf in Lanzarote in April. Never surfed before, a bit worried about getting cold in the cold water.
