Some topics that are covered by beginners:

We make sure too that you get lots of background theory to aid your surf progression. Wave Formation, Surfboard Design, the Rules of Surfing and Fitness for surfing are just some of the many topics we will cover in short lectures.
We are based in the village of Caleta de Famara. This is not a resort. It is one of the loveliest and unchanged old fishing villages in Lanzarote. The village is located in the Parque Natural Del Archipielago Chinijo. This park aims to preserve the amazing beauty and heritage of this area. You will find some of the most stunning scenery in the Canaries right on your doorstep. We have had our school here in Lanzarote for over 20 years and we know that Lanzarote has so much more to offer aside from great surf.
