We were at Calimas over New Years and had quite some bad luck with the weather. Strong wind made it impossible to surf in the first days and froze us to the bones. Here the school did not seem properly prepared for the conditions. The first day we could join a trip to nearby interesting places instead of surfing, which... More

We were very happy with the surf camp instruction provided by Calima. The teachers were fun and friendly, and both our son and daughter (14 and 10) learned a lot. We were there in January, so the water was cold, but the wetsuits and the exercise were enough to keep them warm. If you're wondering, our kids had instructors that... More

My seven & eight year olds were really keen to try surfing & Calima Surf were amazing in their explanations & communications ahead of our lesson. I was confident that the boys' safety & enjoyment was paramount to them. We had the most fantastic afternoon. Anita was perfect with my boys, encouraging them & helping them to catch a wave....

The normal class schedule seems to be 7 nights. However, Calima Surf School was very accommodating of my request to go for a long weekend (Friday to Sunday) in December. Early morning flight from London on a cold Friday morning, arriving in time for the afternoon class on a warm sandy beach in Lanzarote and full day of classes on... More
