"Perfect"

All in all it was a perfect vacation! Nice people, beautiful place, fun surfing and relaxing yoga, nothing more to wish for!

"One of the best experiences "

The instructors are very professional. They are very helpful and they have patience with you.

Really nice people, easy to talk to and you have a lot of fun with them.

I was at first afraid of the waves and stressed out, because I did not succeed at first, but they gave me the confidence which I needed to go further and try again, until I managed to stand up on the bord.

It was the best choice for me to book Lanzasurf, so I definitely recommend it.

I had a fantastic week. Professional and punctual classes, helpful and responsive team, beautiful setting. Great sense of community, but also good for some alone time.

"Great team and great experience!"

Perfect place to learn how to surf and enjoy some yoga, lots of good vibes and smiles with the lanzasurf family.

The team is super committed in teaching you the best surf technics fitting your level and making sure you are enjoying your stay. You can't image how satisfied will you feel at the end of the course.

Yoga classes are perfect to stretch your body before and after any surf class. Ensure sure you try all the different yoga styles.

Make sure you book your accomodation for a couple of days more than the surf classes. You will enjoy a small break to let your body recover. Ask the team to book a car for you and visit this stunning island during the break.

Thanks everyone and hope to see you soon.

"Great fun in a special location "

Famara beach is a unique landscape. The instructors were passionate and enthusiastic. Surf lessons were fun. Yoga sessions were very relaxing and I loved the airial yoga one. Met lovely people and had a very energising and refreshing week. Thank you all in Lanzasurf family:).

I thought I had had surfing lessons before - I was mistaken! The guys at Lanzasurf are incredible instructors, in different ways. Marcio (not sure if I spelt that right!) is probably the most passionate person I’ve ever met about the ocean, and Dejan was meticulous in his teaching. Dejan in particular really focused on improving what you individually needed to work on, which almost felt like private lessons.

I am most definitely not a natural surfer, so don’t worry if that’s you too! They adapt to your level, be it beginner or something else. If you want to learn properly, this is the retreat! The yoga was excellent too, very chilled & focused on recovery from the surfing. The instructors were lovely & I particularly enjoyed the aerial yoga!

I did 5 days in a row of surfing, which I probably wouldn’t recommend - a day off would be better to recover a little.

Famara beach is amazing - one of the most beautiful locations you will find - and the Lanzasurf instructors are excellent.

"Excellent instructors that really make you love this sport "

Dejan and Gordon have been excellent instructors: they are able to transfer the passion for this sport. Thanks to them I really learnt much more than expected, from the theory to practical tricks and techniques that I finally managed to put in practice.

"Recommendations!"

Great people! Lots of smiles each day, lots of positive energy, a happy place :) A perfect way to combine vacation with some sports and if you really want to learn surfing, or just have some surf fun do it here! It’s perfect for young, old, solo or families. All the surf instructors and their lessons were very very good and addressing individual needs. Most of the yoga lessons in the afternoon were perfectly designed to stretch the muscles after an exhausting but super fun surf day. If you want to explore the island I would definitely recommend taking a car, Carol can arrange this. All in all an excellent time with a great team, each one of them..and Carol, lovely Carol ❤️

"First time surfer"

Highly recommend!!!

The daily surf lessons are amazing! The instructors are really attentive, they make sure to cover the theory and then give plenty of time in the sea to practice. The allocated instructor will coach you and help you get cruising on the surf board in no time! The lessons accommodate all levels of surfing experience and as a novice surfer I was thrilled to be standing on the board after just one lesson.

The afternoon yoga classes complement the surfing perfectly by helping relax the muscles and reducing the pain the next day.

All the staff at Lanzasurf are really helpful and friendly. I was travelling alone but felt like I was amongst friends.

I would recommend this experience to anyone looking to explore surfing and enjoy an activity filled holiday in the sun.

"Lanzasurf Awesomeness :)"

Loved the positivity of the Lanzasurf team, as well as the community spirit! Instructors were organised but easy going and adaptive to the group's needs from beginners to experienced surfers. House was very comfortable and great view of the dunes and sea - great place for morning coffee and chill.

Ana Ivis

The surf instructors were AMAZING ! So professional and learned so many things about surfing, the ocean , the waves and even the weather. ( we now know that static electrictity comes before a hail storm ;) ) . Also the YOGA was great, it helped keeping our muscles lean as well as the massage provided by a real physiotherapist. If you really want to learn surfing, go to Lanzasurf!

"overwhelming experience"

My holiday with Lanzasurf was one of the greatest experiences I ever made. Staying at the Surfhouse was a good decision, I met so many beautiful people and had a lot of fun. Furniture etc. is basic but comfortable. The surf lessons have been absolutely amazing, my teachers were Dejan and Gordon who both have a really calm and relaxed way of teaching. Also they're never too serious and always reminding the group to have fun. I can really recommend doing the Yoga classes too, since it is a great preparation for the surfing day.

Many thanks and love to the whole lanzasurf-team and especially to Dejan and Gordon who always made me feel safe and motivated. You guys taught me important lessons for surfing and life! I will take many of your advices with me wherever I go, especially the most important: just try to look cool :-) i will come back for sure! Aloha,

peace and love from Laura

"Active and relaxing week in famara"

I really liked, that everyone was very motivated to make it a perfect holiday for me. Carol organised an amazing horse ride for me and she arranged everything for that I asked for. Dejan was patient and every time in a good mood and motivated to show us how to surf, with his knowledge. How he teached us I could improve my surfing. Lanzasurf created a beautiful place in famara with good vibes where it was easy to connect to people and have a good time.

"Great location and instruction"

The location was perfect to learn to surf. Famara has a lovely vibe, a supermarket, lots of cafes and restaurants and quite a few surf shops.

The surf instruction was great all of the instructors really invest their time in getting to know you and assisting with your own personal style.

The yoga was very nice every morning and I got to experience aerial yoga with silks which was special!

I travelled alone and felt perfectly safe meeting like minded friends in the apartment. We gelled well together as a group and socialised most evening together.

There’s lots of space and time for relaxing or running! The location is slightly baron with a magical feeling.

"Recommended, Great experience and great people "

All the staff of Lanzasurf is very friendly, professional and welcoming. You really feel like with a group of firends. They teach you how to surf but also they share their experiences and transmit their passion. Carol is very kind and professional. I also recommend the yoga class either in the morning or in the afternoon because it really make you feel better and the instructors Evandro and Marco are both very good.

Toiréasa Hennessy

It was an amazing experience. I travelled alone and met lots of new and lovely people. The accommodation provides the basics and perfect environment to get to know others. The location is perfect for people trying to get away for the fast pace and city life. The surfing classes are brilliant, they are divided into groups of ability and adapted around tide times. Also, very informative. I would suggest all levels of surfers will enjoy these classes and the great waves. Yoga classes were also brilliant and helped ease out any sore muscles after surfing but at your own level. All enjoyed with sun and beautiful volcanic landscape.

"muy muy muy bien"

I loved the instructors Gordan and Patricia. It was easy to feed off Gordons passion for surfing and his vast knowledge. Patricia had great positive energy that kept you going even when the body was battered.

The hole thing was organised well and drew a crowd of great people. Loved my time in famara and Alba the yoga instructor is amazing too

"Ik wil terug!"

De surflessen waren geweldig. Helaas kon één surfdag niet doorgaan ivm het weer maar hiervoor boden ze een top alternatief namelijk skateboarden. Daar leer je ook goed de surftechniek van en was erg leuk! Snacks/lunch had iets uitgebreider gemogen, er was bijv. geen sandwich voor vegetariers.

Rasa Savickaite

from Lithuania,

This trip was the best of my life! Every single person who was involved made it special! It was life changing trip! Yoga and surfing was brilliant, all instructors was very passionate and patient with us new people who don't have idea how to surf :) Surf house was as well special! if your lost yourself for sure you will find yourself again because of Lanzarote, surf instructors, beach, sea and waves and people you meet in this place! Thank you with all my heart! best memories, and hope I will meet all of you again!

Annae

I would like to highlight that this trip should NOT be advertised as a surf and yoga retreat. Lanzasurf provides good surf lessons, it is originally a surf school. However, the yoga lessons delivered by the school's owner, in his own garden, are just stretching classes and are delivered in an amateur way, without safety instructions, adjustments or explanations (and in an approximate English). I went to one yoga class only instead of the 5 sessions I was planning to attend.

I am a yoga teacher myself and was looking forward to attend the yoga sessions, but unfortunately it was not was I was expecting at all. Luckily, I found an amazing yoga teacher in Famara (Alba Balada) and went to her classes instead. She was leading the yoga sessions for Lanzasurf last year (which may explain the good reviews from previous travelers), but is not working with them anymore.

I would definitely recommend Lanzasurf for the surf lessons they provide but I think they should move away from advertising yoga classes unless they start working with a qualified yoga instructor (and have a proper yoga shala/studio instead of someone's backyard). Until then I suggest that this trip is not advertised on BookYogaRetreat as it is a bot misleading.

Unfortunately, I don't think I will book a yoga retreat again through BookYogaRetreat, as my first experience was very disappointing.

Response from Lanzasurf:

Hi Anne,

We feel dissappointed that you didn´t enjoy all the activities of Lanzasurf but we appreciate that you have taken your time to explain us the reasons.

We think that the yoga that we do here, at Lanzasurf, is the best compliment for our surf lessons which is the main activity because it takes 5 hours of your day. As you said, we used to just work with another teacher independent from us (we just have kind words for Alba). We haven´t stopped working with her but more and more we tend to work with Surf & Yoga instructors because they fully understand what have you´ve been through during the 5 hours Surf Course. During the yoga sessions we focus on the muscles that we have been working on the beach and we design a 5 days plan that helps you relax your mind and body so that at the end of your holidays you feel with all your batteries charged.

Regarding to the spot where the yoga sessions take place, which seems to amaze most of our guests, we respect every ones opinion. When we started with the yoga sessions we did it in a indoor studio. During this time we´ve received many enquiries asking for the yoga to be on the beach or outdoor.

We´ve always wanted to make the difference between what standard city studios offer, running away from the audio with the sound of the sea or waterfalls and surrounded by four walls.

We want to offer an experience and we think that its an asset to be offering yoga sessions under Lanzarote´s stars, enjoying a volcanic skyline view and with real waves soundtrack. Its the same with surfing, we dont focus for you to stand up on a board, what we really work in is you having the best surfing experience in Lanzarote. And we are happy that you had such an amazing surfing experience!

We want to thank you for the review. The not-so-good ones are the ones that make us want to be better on what we do. Lastly we kindly ask you not to blame Book Yoga Retreats for your experience as they are really professionals in what they do.

Thank you once again and aloha, LANZASURF TEAM

Gabrielle

from United Kingdom,

Lanzasurf was everything I expected and a whole lot more. I had such a wonderful 5 days and came back feeling mentally and physically relaxed and happy. The surf teachers are thorough and tailor to your needs, and most of all really lovely people. I would highly recommend this for a short break (or long if you have the time ) and want to learn to surf in a friendly and welcoming environment.

Ich hatte dort eine sehr schöne Zeit. Die Belegschaft ist super aufmerksam und Playa der Famara ist ein toller Ort um Wellenreiten zu lernen. Ich würde immer wieder gerne zurückkommen.
