“Best camp to improve your surf right at the beach”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Great surf camp right at the beach. Most of the surf camps on Fuerteventura are in in the village. This is the only one at the beach and it makes your surf mood complete.

The surf instructor Gregor knows what he is doing and give your personal tips to improve your surf. He also have a GoPro hero camera for some nice action shots.

At the camp they also have: Kayak and SUP's

David, Gregor and Dani Surf's up!

Last year I already had a fantastic time here (as you might have read from my first review). Second time was just as great!!

This time I travelled with my sister so we decided to stay at the camp. We had a wonderful new room that was recently renovated with two double beds :-) :-) :-) Also an en-suite private bathroom so no "Knock, knock: are you already done?" kind of situations with other guests. The view from our room was amazing: looking over the ocean in between the palm trees. What more can you wish for?!

David and Danny made me feel just as welcome as they did the first time. It felt great being back! Also, we met Gregor and his dog Vincent. It was great getting tips from Gregor who took us for all the classes. He is really patient and he gave one thing to improve each time, so you could focus on that. Also, he explained the situation of the location (sounds funny :-)) we were about to surf each time which helped me so I knew what I was getting into. Vincent didn't teach us anything about surfing LOL but he came around for a cuddle every once in a while :-)

We also rented a car one day and drove to Ajuy. Lovely little place on the other side of the island!

In conclusion: if you're hesitant about where to go (Fuerteventura or another Canary island, this camp or another), go for the Billabong camp!! I'm sure you'll feel just as welcome as I did and that you'll have a fantastic time!!

I spent a wonderful week in the Billabong Surfschool. First I was a bit afraid because I never went alone on holiday before but there was nooo need to be concerned! I was picked up at the airport in time (!!) . Danni explained me a lot about the island on the drive to Corralejo. It was my first time ever on Fuerteventura. Arriving in the Camp I got my room and my ”welcome package” . Very nice room , everything was clean. The room had sea view. Did´nt expected that – so nice! I shared it wih another girl. We had a lot of stuff, so maybe another wardrobe would be good ;-).They had free wifi connection, which was very cool! The Camp is directly on the beach and you have a free view to it. Especially in the morning its sooo relaxing to have your breakfast outside with that view. The surfinstructor Gregor and has funny dog -Vincent. Make sure you hug Vinciii, so he becomes your best friend! :-) The lessons where very good. We were a nice group of students and had soooo much fun! The conditions were rough but I didnt came to play chess! Gregor is a very good teacher, explaining very good! Always concentrated and no matter what – he is always right! :-)
I also got to know David, one of the owners. Always asking if everything is fine.Very helpful. I had the feeling they really, really care a lot about their camp, their school and their guests because it was more like a family and not like a seperate “thing”. We aso had a bbq all together on Friday afternoon...another chance to make Vincent become your best friend!
I really enjoyed my stay and I want to go there again as soon as I can!!!! Thanks guys!!!

Billabong Surf Camp is awesomely amazing! I travelled out by myself and was immediately made welcome by the owners Danni and David. The accommodation is great (with hammocks outside to chill out!) But the best thing about the surf camp is the atmosphere, as a solo traveller I immediately made friends with all the different groups of people staying at the camp. You also meet other people who are doing the surf lessons so it is really sociable! The surf lessons are brilliant, the instructor - Gregor was really good. He clearly cares about getting people to surf and will pull you out of the water to help you improve your technique. You get to go to different beaches in Fuerteventura so as a bonus you get to see a lot of the island.

Oh and did I mention the surf camp is right on the beach! The most amazing place to wake up in the morning. Absolutely beautiful - you have to go!

We had never tried it before, but we really enjoyed it and greg, our instructor for the day was very patient and gave us lots of tips and encouragement. He also recommended some very nice restaurants which were great so cheers greg!!

Two really good blokes (David and Dan) run an honest, friendly, quality surf camp, which in my experience, you will be hard pushed to find a better one. The camp is clean and spacious, with a good vibe - situated in a great location. You feel really looked after in a no nonsense, genuine manner by everyone who works there, which is a real bonus in surf camps.

My trip was ALL about the surfing and I wasn’t disappointed. Gregor is a straight talking, ballsy but genial surf guide who does what he says - he finds you the best waves each day and helps you become a better surfer, without all the ego and boloney that I’ve experienced before.

This is the first time I’ve bothered writing a recommendation on trip advisor, but I believe that you should give credit where credit is due – and these guys, in my book, deserve a huge shout out. Thanks for a great trip. I will be back, with a few more in tow. High 5 to Vincent.
