When we booked our holiday to Lanzarote we decided to book surf lessons, as we really wanted to learn how to catch waves for a long time.
Our approach was: "Yayy, finally we could try to surf! And If we do it, let's do it properly, with the best ones out there!"
After some research we found out that Surf School Lanzarote is actually the best school one can possibly ask for- being the most experienced surf school and camp in Europe, and regarded as one of the best worldwide!
On top of all this, they are the only genuine International Surfing Association Registered School in the Canaries, so we were no longer hesitating which Surf School to choose.
Our plan was to discover the island and finish our holiday off with the surf sessions (planned 3 days only with the Surf School -foolishly). Now we know we should have done it the other way around so we could go back for more-much more.
After 3 days of learning how to surf we found ourselves going back on our last day just to rent some boards and literally kept on chasing waves until we really had to run to catch our plane back, -it was that much fun!
We had our own transport and accommodation, but Tim and his crew are happy to arrange both for any 'student', all you have to do is ask.
The sessions are perfectly structured, the instructors are skilled, highly experienced and great fun.
Tim, Jake and Dan provided coaching on an individual level, according to our abilities. This was really ideal as 'beginner' Mum, the 'intermediate' Son, and 'advanced' Dad, or friends/couples with different levels of surfing abilities could all attend together. Emphasis was placed on technique, style, attitude, fun, oh and safety as well (massively) -we practiced head covers until it absolutely became a reflex.
During lunch brakes Tim and the crew were keen to expand our surfing knowledge with background information on wave formation, surfboard design and loads more -and shared some amazing - , and some hilarious surf stories as well.
To sum it up -we are hooked on. Wanting to go back soo much, and already began thinking of our next visit. And we feel really lucky to have chosen Tim's Surf School, would never go to anyone else on the Canaries,
and only to those Tim suggests outside the Canaries.
