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.

    The most friendly and enthusiastic staff ever. Danny is an amazing instructor, and he taught and helped each and every participant with passion. I joined with my little son who fell in love with surfing thanks to the Surf Canaries team. One more thing: they sell really cool caps, too, if you’re looking for a nice and useful souvenir! Totally recommended for both adults and kids!

    Awesome instructor - super helpful and encouraging. We were a group of only four people so there was plenty of time for individual feedback. I felt totally safe all the time, though I had never been surfing before. And the cherry on the top: They've got a very responsible attitude towards the environment (e. g. water in glass bottles). Thumps up!

    Wir wurden freundlich begrüßt, wonach es gleich mit einer kleinen Theorie-Einheit startete. Da die Wellen hier nicht so gut waren sind wir zu einem anderen Strand gefahren (El hombre). Die Surflehrer motivierten einen sehr und gaben stets kleine Tips. Insgesamt hat uns das Surfen sehr viel Spaß gemacht und wir haben große Fortschritte gemacht. Die Gruppen Größe war mit 8 Leuten sehr angenehm.
