“A great first surfing lesson!”
Reviewed 28 November 2013 via mobile

We had never surfed before, but our teacher was very enthusiastic and was going to make surfers of all of us! We met up outside the surfshop in the town centre and got driven to the beach in El Cotillo. Our teacher showed us how to warm up, how to keep safe and the basic techniques. Then we got to try it in the water. It was great fun and after the four hours we were exhausted but happy. Thanks for a lovely day!

We spent 2 days with these guys and wish we had booked more! We had a combination of experienced surfers and non surfers in our group and both were accommodated when it came to the days out. At the end of day two the non surfers were standing and through enjoying themselves. Equally, the instructors gave the more experienced guys some valuable tips to help them improve. A really good service throughout from booking to choice of surf location. We highly recommend these guys as your surf school of choice.

“Paddle Paddle Paddle......”
Reviewed 22 September 2013

Two years ago we booked a day with Homegrown and loved it so on this trip we had reservations to book two days surfing with them, and we were not disappointed, great coaching all staff were friendly and were surfers so had a passion for what they do and want to see you succeed, a pleasant stop on the way back from the surf spot to a little local coffee shop for a caffeine shot and rich chocolate brownie. Thanks guys.

“Professionalism with a smile”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Very happy that I decided to go for a surfing adventure in Fuerteventura, with Homegrown Surfschool. I booked my "schoolweek" literally just one moment before the last one and was positively surprised at how quickly and smoothly the "inscriptions" went: it is a business run in a very neat and efficient way. I stayed at the sufcamp Casa Hilda, which meets the normal standards of any good hostel, clean, well-equipped, with great community spaces that help bring the people toghether: would surely recommend it over more luxurious accomodation options, because of the cool vibe and atmosphere it has. I opted for the 6 day suflessons - 7 nights in surfcamp package - with airport transfer and all the necessary surfing equipment included - which I found very reasonably priced. I think, moreover, one can always ask for a tailored package and find an open and flexible response from Homegrown.
Besides the organisation, I was very satisfied with the preparedness and the positive energy of the instructors: experienced, well-trained trainers, looking out for each and every one of the students, pointing out individual mistakes and giving personalized quality advice on how to correct them. Always encouraging and motivating, which is very important, especially for beginners and especially with a sport so complex and so muscle- and at times nerve-wrecking as surfing! :)
As an optional, the school also offered afternoon photography workshop-sessions - a fresh alternative to the usual yoga-classes most surfschools propose. I followed two sessions and found them just the right complement to the surfing. The workshop has a well-established, well-structured weekly programme, taking participants to discover various breathtaking landscapes of the island, while the instructors give theoretical and practical advice on technique and composition, tailored to each participant’s individual level, from novice to the educated eye.
All in all, everything was characterised by a professional approach coupled with an unpretentious, relaxed attitude. Definitely recommended!
