- Getting There
- Due to changing tides exact surf lesson start times are not decided until the week of your lesson.
- After you book we will contact you the week of your lesson to tell you your lessons start time.
For a good and safe learning the ratio is 1 instructor: 1 kid. We offer lessons for kids aged 5-12. In order to guarantee your kid’s safety, the surf instructor will always be behind the board to stabilise it and take control of it if necessary. This also helps your kid to move backward and forward on the board and start to make the first steps for their future surfing.
Each lesson lasts 2 hours and it is organised in the warming up with a proper surf technique on the boards at the beach and in the second part of practise in the water. Our surf instructor will always be behind the students holding the board (with fins on his feet!) during the moment of the take off in order to stabilise it and guarantee that the first steps will be as easy as possible!
During the intermediate surf lesson we will focus on the last steps to improve your position and your weight distribution on the board, with the purpose of teaching you how to read waves and moving your weight depending on that! Every surf lessons lasts 2 hours and includes custom technique session outside of the water and a lot of surf. The instructor will ride next you on his board!
Private lessons are the best way to improve with a custom training depending on your level. We pick you up from the accomodation, take you for surfing and take you back home with a big smile on your face!

Surf conditions in Tenerife:
Air Temp (°C)
The best surf in Lanzarote for advanced levels happens in the winter months from November to March. However for beginners and intermediates it is a year round surf destination.
The area has two main surf areas, the North coast and the South coast. The East coast has some ok beach breaks but it is not that reliable.
The greatest concentration of surf spots is between the southern tourist towns of Playa de Las Americas and Los Cristianos. Spanish Left is one of Tenerifes more famous spots. A left wave, steep and powerful, working from a pushing low tide. Reef shoes recommended. It is right in the centre of Playa de Las Americas and is definitely a more advanced spot. Nearby are easier beaches perfect for learning.
Also south are El Conquistador (South) , a beautiful, long, fast right especially at the start. and The Fitenia (South) which has both lefts and right options.
Along the North of the island you have some of Tenerife's best beginner and intermediate surf spots including the Bajamar Reefs and also Playa del Socorro. Its located close to the town of Puerto de la Cruz, about an hour from Playa de Las Americas. The spot is dominated by mountains overlooking the ocean and is a fascinating sight. It’s a real amphitheater with crystal clear water and year round surf.
That is just a small sample, there are many more surf spots to explore and experience on a Tenerife Surfing Holiday.
