The surf center is open every day, all year round! So what are you waiting for? Come and experience the amazing waves of Spain as you relax in between with yoga!
You will stay in Lanzasurf Surf School. It is a great place to socialize with other surfers and to make the most of what Famara has to offer!

Internet wireless connection is available.
Lanzasurf has developed a teaching system that is adaptable to all student types and levels. During this surf camp, if you learn fast, they will speed things up. But if you do not want to rush, do not worry for they will take it slow.
Either way, Lanzasurf will always teach with passion and use all their experience to ensure your time with them is productive, fun, and unforgettable. All Lanzasurf surfing classes include a theoretical and a practical part and will cover the following topics depending on your level:
You do not need any specific preparation before the surf camp. However, if you have surfed before, you will know that a good physical condition can have a great influence on your progression.
If you feel like getting in shape before the camp, running, swimming, and practicing yoga are all great ways to build up resistance and strength while also improving your breathing capacity, all of which can make a big difference in your surfing performance.

I was born in Slovenia; a country with no waves!! I started surfing late in my life, in 2006. I started in Famara and Evandro (owner of Lanzasurf) was my instructor. I became addicted to surfing and became a qualified Surf instructor in 2015. I love sharing my surf knowledge to first time surfers. In the past I was competing in swimming and white water kayaking. I love my life in board shorts and flip flops in Famara!
This retreat will take place in Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain. Lanzarote, or “Lanza” as locals call it, is the most easterly island of the Canary archipelago, which belongs to Spain. It is located in the Atlantic Ocean, 100 kilometers west of the African coast and approximately 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Spain.
Lanzarote is the most volcanic of the Canary Islands. Its magnetic, almost lunar landscape boasts over 200 kilometers of coastline and countless beaches, together with the charm of its architecture, exclusively low-rise houses, all painted white with either blue or green woodwork, make it truly different from any other island of the archipelago.
Aside from being a Mecca for all surf, kitesurf, windsurf, stand-up-paddle, diving, snorkelling, fishing, and sailing enthusiasts, Lanzarote is a great playground for earth sports such as cycling, mountain biking, trekking, quad, horse riding, golfing or simply enjoying a relaxing time in one of the island’s many spa centers.
The incredible quality of surf in Lanzarote has earned the island the nickname of “European Hawaii”, with a variety of spots for surfers of all levels. Any time of the year is good for surfing on the island, especially from September to December. These months are traditionally favored by experimented surfers as they receive the biggest swells.
While the summer waves tend to be smaller. In any case, the island’s many spots make it possible to surf great waves all year round and offer good options whatever the swell, wind, and tide conditions.
The bay of Caleta Caballo offers a variety of reef breaks: two mellow rights, one short, and the other longer with some small barrels, and a long mellow left.
El Cagao has short, fast reef break of excellent quality for surfers of all levels left and right. El Muell has fast and long reef break that is perfect for barrels and maneuvers left and right. El Barco, on the other hand, has incredibly long and mellow left and right reef breaks, perfect for longboards, stand-up-paddles, and beginner surfers starting to ride unbroken waves.
Famara beach has countless left and right, beach and reef breaks for all levels, set in an amazing landscape with the Risco mountain in the background.
The island’s most famous wave, and one of the world’s most powerful for its very fast and hollow reef break left and right.
Impressive left reef break with two sections, the first one breaking out to sea and connecting to the second section on big days, to form the longest wave on the island. The second section is perfect for barrels and maneuvers and breaks in turquoise waters.
Numerous short and fast shore break peaks set on a beautiful, animated beach with a pier, skate park, beach volley and soccer grounds, a bar, and a restaurant.
La Santa left reef break of impressive quality, perfect 364 days of the year, long, hollow, and powerful, good for manoeuvers and barrels, left and right. La Santa center magic reef break is an easy, mellow, and long wave that is perfect for manoeuvers and some small barrels left. La Santa right reef break is incredibly long and powerful wave that is good for maneuvers and barrels and can handle very large swells right.
Another beautiful break located to the extreme north of the island, on a beach adjacent to the small fishermen’s village of Orzola. Long, easy break starting on the reef and ending on the shore
San Juan has been chosen to host a leg of the world’s championship thanks to its very long left reef break, perfect for maneuvers and barrels, which connects to a second and third peak on the best days. The beach’s beauty is unspoiled, with a natural pool that is perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
The price includes a daily energy-packed snack at the beach after the morning session.
