Full description

Become a surfer for the day in the perfect year-round weather conditions of Gran Canaria. Visit the most beautiful beaches on the island, and discover the best waves for learning. Enjoy maximum fun and maximum safety as you get to grips with surfing. Classes begin with a theory lesson in the surf school at the foot of the spectacular sand dunes of Maspalomas. The video class is a fun, uncomplicated session that will soon set you up for a day in the water. Then, it's time to get wet and put theory into action. Once your instructors have located the best beach conditions, they will be in the water with you at all times, making sure that you get the most out of your session. As a mobile unit, the instructors will determine the best conditions on your lesson day, meaning you will not only learn how to surf, but will discover some of the most beautiful spots on Gran Canaria, and get to experience the island’s surf culture up close.

    We, three absolute surf beginners, are absolutely satisfied. We started centrally at the beach shopping center and drove to the coast with the van. We were asked via WhatsApp if we could go an hour earlier, as the waves were best there. On site we got a little theory lesson with dry runs. The surf instructors were all very friendly and patient. As a small snack there was a liter of water and a banana. Thank you for everything!

    I was particularly impressed by her honesty. The surf pros informed us immediately that unfortunately there were very few waves and we can think about the following: 1.postpone 2.try, cancel if it doesn't work 3.cancel Unfortunately, my colleague and I couldn't do it on another day, which is why we still wanted to try. Best decision! It was enough for beginners and really worth it. We even convinced the other course participants and they came with us. After the very detailed explanation of the surf instructor, we put on the equipment and walked to the beach with 2 boards each (2). The way was quite far, especially when walking back I almost burned my feet on the sand, so I give 1 star less for transport. After warming up and first attempts, they asked us again if we wanted to cancel, but we were very enthusiastic and ended the course. Too bad we are still waiting for the photos.

    At first there was a small booking error, which is why I was only able to take part in the surf course the following day. We apologized several times and in a very friendly way, so it wasn't a problem. The surf school team is very friendly and nice. There was a short introduction and then it started straight away. The team was always in the water and gave tips and assistance. It was a very good course and a lot of fun. It is really recommended to everyone!
