One thing becomes apparent very quickly at Surf School Lanzarote, it's a very professional set up catering for all levels of surfing and catering for all wishes from 1 day courses to infinity, however they definitely aim themselves at the person who want to surf for life. Whilst on the beach there are many other schools around but none looked... More

Thanks so much for that really positive review. Summing us up as teaching surfing for people "who want to surf for life " is an excellent appraisal of the way we approach coaching . Even if that surfing for life is just a few days or a few weeks a year. Its great you found coming to our school on... More

Stayed with surf school lanzarote for a week (5 days coaching) and we can honestly say its the best coaching we have had. The instuctors ensure everyone gets coached to their level in order to progress, such as pop ups, turning and turtle rolls. My partner had trouble getting out back for the first time but Jamie was really good... More

Just want to say a big thank you to paddy, Vicky and Vincent who were were very accommodating to our needs. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the surf school and then dropped back. The conditions were a bit tough but managed to stand up on day 2. Thanks again guys for all your help.

Travelled to Famara solo to take part in a one week surf course, Lanzarote Surf School was a brilliant choice. The trainers were all excellent, great value for money, and the school is really well ran by Vincent. The size of the group were different on each day, and despite the fact that we were up to 15 on one... More

My sister and I spent five days here and would 100% recommend. Amazing instructors with great atmosphere and no pressure. As beginners we found the course a perfect introduction with lots of time for progression. Would certainly recommend for not only the surfing but also the knowledge provided about safety and protocol in the water.

I booked Surf School Lanzarote on the basis of its many 5* trip advisor ratings, plus some back and forth emails with Tim. They not only sorted my 15 year old daughter with three days of surf instruction, but organised a rental house in Famara that was ideal for us and our autistic son while A was out surfing. A...
