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!

I loved Famara beach. The village was beautiful and quiet, perfect for getting away.

"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.

​I have had one of the best experiences of my life thanks to Lanzasurf! I totally recommend it and I will definitely go back. Outstanding professionals and wonderful human beings. I would rate them with an 100 if possible!

I had never tried surfing before and both the surfing, the place and the people exceeded all expectations! The Lanzasurf teachers are awesome, taking care of both beginners and more advanced surfers as needed. And Famara beach has to be one of the best places there is to learn surfing. I would definitely go back if I have the chance. And I'm definitely hooked on surfing for life! Thank's Gabby, Patricia, Gordon and Evandro for an awesome week!

One week was awesome but actually too short, I would recommend to go for 2-3 weeks and do surfing with brakes of some "free days" in between to really get everything out of the place. Since we did surfing in the days and yoga in the evenings we didn't get much time to explore the island or chill out. The yoga is off course optional though, but so nice and good for sore surfing bodies, and taking place outside (sometimes seeing the sunset).

The Lanzasurf house is perfect if you like socializing with other people a lot. From the second you arrive until you leave there is people to surf, yoga, eat and hang out with. I traveled with my partner and we rented the private room which had a nice (topside) double-bed. The only real downside was the lack of hot water for more than perhaps 2-3 people to shower fast. And the cleanliness for some people, although it didn't bother me (wasn't too bad).

Great experience surfing and learning yoga in Lanzarote. The Lanzasurf team was great as they were really responsive, which helped us organize our trip very quickly. They provided accommodation near the surf school, which was not luxurious but comfortable enough. Our surf instructors were Gordon and Gilmar and it was great being taught by them. They really care about their "students" and make sure to adapt to your level. The yoga sessions on one of Famara's rooftops were really nice and easy, made for beginners as well as for more experienced people. Very relaxing and perfect activity to close an intense surf day!
