The speed of the learning process during the lesson will depend on your experience, fitness level, your determination and persistence.

Without any pressure step by step you will learn everything you need to achieve it. All people are different, but we are absolutely sure that everyone can learn to kitesurf. You will acquire the basic knowledge about kitesurfing security and weather conditions, first on the beach and then in the water.

Experienced kiters can also rent our high quality equipment and go kiting assisted by one of the instructors.

Yoga with Red Star Surf

Professional surfers like Kelly Slater, Stephanie Gilmor and Cory Lopez practice yoga to improve their performance in the water and to stay flexible and relaxed during competitions.

Yoga and surfing are the perfect combination for every surfer. Surfing and yoga both make you flexible and strong and open your eyes for the beauty around you, as both put you in excellent harmony with your surroundings. The yoga classes meet the physical needs of surfers at all levels and will support your learning experience to the maximum.

The evening yoga sessions focus on relaxing asanas (physical exercises) to regenerate the body after a day of surfing. A mixture of stretches and relaxing exercises help your blood circulate through the body more freely, so you can enjoy the next days surf session without feeling sore or physically tired.

Balance exercises ease your body into inner peace, strength and stability. You will also greatly improve your balance when you are riding the waves. A couple of breathing and relaxation exercises at the end of the yoga class will relax your body and mind. This can also show you how to calm down in the ocean, which is the perfect metaphor for life.

According to the ancient yogic text, the Yogasutra of Patanjali, yoga means The waves of thoughts come to rest in the spirit The same will happen to you while you are in the waves of the ocean.

Red Star Surf School is located in a small quiet fishing village of the Famara Beach on the north coast of Lanzarote (Canary Islands, Spain). You will be surrounded by waves, mountains and pristine landscapes. The whole north of Lanzarote is a nature reserve protected by UNESCO. Lanzarote and the neighboring islands are provided with waves from all directions because of the volcanic formation and the favorable geographical location. This allows for the best place for surfing and kiting in all weather conditions, with abundance of swell and surf spots that work in all different wind and swell directions. Therefore, the Canary Islands is also known as the Hawaii of Europe. Truly a surfer's paradise!

All surf houses in Famara have a fully equipped kitchen, which you can share with other guests. The small local supermarkets provide a good selection of international and local products. For dinner, Red Star Surf still recommends to go out. Most of the local restaurants and bars are good, inexpensive and provide international menus. Famara offers a choice between cheap and quick Canarian local fast food to fine cuisine. Ask the friendly team for recommendations.

Mountain biking

Lanzarote is a true paradise for lovers of cycling. Many tracks pass through the station in Famara. Either cruising along the coast line, to the neighboring island La Graciosa or to the volcanoes. No matter which route you choose, you will always be touring, while being accompanied by stunning sceneries of this island!

Red Star Surf bike center offers you a choice of high quality mountain bikes, beach cruiser and helmets. The mountain bikes have an aluminum frame with special wheels or contact pedals that can be equipped when required. They dont rent out cycling footwear due to hygienic reasons.

Spanish school

Learning Spanish in Spain is without a doubt the fastest and most effective way of getting to know the language. Studying a language abroad allows us to put our new knowledge into practice every day, which accelerates language assimilation. Learning a new language will always be much more effective if it is combined with cultural immersion. Red Star Surf Spanish School offers you the opportunity of studying Spanish in one of the Atlantic Oceans most beautiful islands

Red Star Surf Language Academy is located about 100 meters from the beautiful Famara beach and several surf spots. The Academy is fully equipped with everything needed for a quality learning: a comfortable environment, modern equipments, free Wi-Fi, a small library and above all, an impressive views of the cliff. In Red Star Surf Language Academy, all the teachers are experienced and trained as foreign language teachers.


The surf school is located in Caleta de Famara, Lanzarote, just in the middle of the Natural Reserve Parque Natural del Archipelago Chinijo, protected by UNESCO. A unique place in Europe with warm and pleasant weather surrounded by the endless ocean which provides us waves all year round.

They offer individual and group sessions with up to 8 students per instructor / lifeguard. Their attitude to surfing is making everything possible. They will always find the appropriate approach to each student - you will love surfing! Surfing is not just a sport, it is a culture. They offer you to get acquainted with the culture of surfing in informal conditions together with our crew. Open all year round and every day!

Surfing lessons for children

Children over 6 years of age, who can already swim can take part in the surf lessons. Children and adults will benefit in many ways from each other and can learn together better and faster. Without any stress or pressure, the kids are introduced to their first steps in the water. The surfing students get used to the ocean and the waves, then they learn to glide on the water and then come the surfing.

Classes are always held in a secure waist depth area where you can stand and always close to the instructor. The class usually lasts for 4-5 hours which includes lunch and a short break. Red Star Surf also offers private coaching for all levels. Famara beach is one of the best places in Europe to learn to surf with great waves, with nice weather most of the year and experienced Red Star Surf team to guide you all the way.

    "I had booked the retreat because I wanted a mix of surf and yoga. The main reason was that I did not want to go to a "surf only" place, in order to avoid the loud music, beer drinking and university hall type of life. I thought that if there was yoga, then the clients would be more civilized and caring of the people and the facilities. I was very disappointed to to have to go through the loud music, beer drinking and university hall type of life. I wanted to rest and be in a peaceful and quiet place, I had the opposite.1. YOGA"

    "It is not a yoga and surf retreat. Yoga is totally accessory and not part of Red Star Surf. Out of the 10 days I was there only 3 yoga classes actually took place. Every time, we showed up for the class, we were given a different explanation that the teacher was not available.2. ACCOMMODATION"

    "The surf house shown in the picture of the website is actually the only decent of the 3 houses. The one I stayed in, called the Sunset House, is not renovated, and the rooms are dirty and minuscule. I had paid extra for a single room. The room was dirty when I arrived. I cleaned it myself since the cleaning lady comes once a week and only changes sheet. After I complained and asked to be moved to a bigger room when the other client left, I spent 5 days in a correct room in terms of size, but still dirty. The bathroom smelt of pee all the time and the floor was dirty. It was cleaned once a week and there was only cold water (cold showers) for 4 days. The kitchen was from the nineties and the sofas of the kitchen/living room were so dirty they were sticky. The music (loud) was on every evening, with at least 15 people talking loud in the living room/on the street, but when I asked the instructors living in the house to keep it down after 11 p.m., they did comply.3. ADVANCE PAYMENT / NO REFUNDI learned from another customer that the owner refused to refund the money for the surf lessons not taken. He gave her vouchers to use when she would come back. I immediately wrote to the owner to tell him that I wanted a refund for the 2 surf lessons I had not taken and that they should not have made me book 10 surf lessons for 10 days, knowing that when you begin, it is very tiring. Even the instructors said that I should take a day here and there to enable my body to recover. The organizer got angry at my email but in the end, they refunded the money on my credit card for both yoga and the 2 surf lessons. But I really had to fight to achieve the resultThe one good thing about my stay is that the surf instructors are really good. But that's really the only good thing about Red Star Surf."

    "We absolutely loved the holiday and had a fantastic experience with Red Star Surf. All the team were so supportive and a huge amount of fun. The surfing was better than we could have hoped for and the instructors made the process of learning so enjoyable - especially important as I am particularly useless.The Yoga was a perfect combination to the surfing, on a roof terrace in the early evening we were stretching out the day, listening to the waves - complete bliss. We both fell in love with Famara, a totally unspoiled and unpretentious village with a huge spirit of community.The apartment was directly on the beach and our housemates for the week a great bonus, we had such a chilled out and relaxing time I can not wait to go back (hoping to go back in October). Red star also organised a skate boarding lesson which was a total bonus.I just wish the week had been longer and can not thank the team enought!"

    "Red Star Surf & Yoga School offers one of the best experiences when it comes to surfing, yoga and relaxing. Owner Andrey Yashin speaks English, Russian, German and Spanish and his friendly attitude helps you feel at home and adds a prsonalised twist to your stay. The surf teachers Jerry and Dominique are top notch level, attentive and easily approachable.The accomodation offered by Red Star is very good, the rooms are clean and Casa Del Mar offers a wonderful view of the bay. You can easily socialize with anyone from the crew at any time and become a part of Famara's local society. If you want to feel at ease, in a friendly atmosphere and receive good level of surfing experience, Red Star School is the right choice for you!"

    "We had a wonderful time there! Famara is a small village and we were accomodated in an Apartment of Red Star Surf. Our bed was comfy. Very nice and spacious with rooftop terrace. We took both, kite and surfing courses. The teachers for Surfing are very skilled and their tips and hints are helpful. On top they are very funny and always up to jokes. Javier, the kite surfing instructor, was very patient and helpful (and of course skilled). Yoga lesson with Lucie was great, but it was daily at around 5 pm, so it might interfered with our plans to discover the island....(so better ask before you pre-book the lessons!) Having seen both, the kite learning conditions in Famara and those of Fuerteventura/Corralejo I must say that we had the perfect conditions in Famara: not too crowded and a nice wide beach to start from. (And nice and releaxed teachers/owners of the school, that are not ripping people off!) But be aware, that this is different from learning in a lagoon. The beach is little wavy, but at least you learn to properly kite there. We would recommend a rental car to get around the island. Thank you, Red Star Surf! (And I would totally do it again!!!!)"

    "I had a wonderful stay at Red Star Surf Camp & Yoga. The team was so welcoming, helpful and friendly. The surfing was one of the best I've ever had, conditions were really good and the lessons we were given provided excellent balance between theory and practice, and a lot of fun too. All the instructors were very supportive. Thank you all!"

    "The apartment I stayed in was very well located in front of the beach, comfortable, clean and quiet, with a small terrace with sea view. My housemates were very friendly, and we got along very well. Famara is a nice pittoresque village, hopefully not touristic, perfect place to chill out. Morning runs on the beach were just pure happiness. Besides, Lanzarote is a beautiful island. To sum up, it was an excellent experience and I will definitely come back!"

    "I think the best thing about Red Star was that I felt like I was being treated like a friend, not just a customer. The first night Jerry took us out to a local tapas bar, Andrey had us playing surfing agility games involving cereal boxes, everyone was superduper friendly and helpful. Would I go back? Absolutely, I already went back in fact, I spent a few days on another island, had a few days to spare and went back for more surfing. The yoga instructor was fabulous, the surf teacher had me standing on the board the first afternoon and the young team in the shop tried to help with every and any question I had, and we even got a free T shirt! On my last night I had a pain in my ankle, I called Katie really late and she was there in 10 minutes with first aid supplies and offered to take me to hospital. I felt safe and looked after even though I was travelling solo. The only little thing I didn't like was that the first time I arrived at the surfhouse, it wasn't very clean and the thingy that holds the shower up needs fixing, but these are details compared to everything else, and when I went back the second time everything was a lot cleaner. I will be back I'm sure."

  • Review by Stephano from Germany

    "I've been visiting Red Star Surf 3 times over the past 2 years and have always had a great experience. My initial plan was to go and re-charge batteries prior to starting a new job . Yoga in the morning was a great experience and I actually took up yoga at home afterwards. The village of Caleta Famara where the surf house is located is a charming little "fisher village". There are at least two small supermarkets and several restaurants, but you can also have the full board option in the surf house - which was what i usually did. The landscape surrounding Famara is spectacular - theres a volcanic crater just a couple hundred meters from the surf house."

    "Weve spent 3 days at the Red Star Surf School and although we didn't stay in Famara, we were kindly collected every day. I cannot put into words how much fun we had surfing for those 3 days with excellent instruction and great correspondences from Andrey. Putting a little bit of yoga in the warm up was fantastic for stretching out and getting into the right headspace for the days ahead. Our instructor, Gilmar couldn't have been better- giving us a 1on 1 instructions and pointers as when we needed it! We really did progress with the 3 days surf school - The only problem was that, 3 days really wasn't long enough and we will definitely be back! I have surfed with another school in Famara before. But couldn't contemplate going anywhere else than the Red Star Surf School for my next visit. Beyond exceptional!"

  • Review by Darya Smith from Russia

    "It is an amazing place for relaxing, having fun and, no doubt, for surfing! The professional and funny surf instructors teach you not only to pop-up and catch your first green wave, but to feel the energy of the ocean and to be part of it. Without fears, with flexible body you'll conquer the waves! Moreover, delicious seafood, local wine, a lot of volcanoes, car-travelling through the Island, Sunday fairs, stunning views, fascinating sunsets, parties and of course good waves are waiting for you there! It's one of the best place for an awesome holiday!"
