BEACH BREAK SURFARI ON GRAN CANARIA
As a free surfer, you are independent of the rest of the surfing course, while not being obliged to look for a good surf spot. 5 days a week, we head towards the sandy beach with the best surf conditions. This, however, does not mean it will be boring for advanced surfers. Each spot has separate surf areas. So while students are walking in the white water, you can hunt open waves further.
THE PERFECT OPTION FOR COUPLES
Want to feel your major sense with regard to surfing as you do? Why do not you offer a combined trip of our surf lessons and the free surfing package? As you enjoy the waves, your boy or girlfriend learns the basics and will soon follow you in the line. Now it's a win-win situation!
THIS IS YOUR DAY OF SURFARI
Together with surfing students, you have 5 hours at the beach, totally at your disposal. Besides transfer and picnic (sandwich, cereal bar, juice), surf equipment is also included. Our selection of rental boards ranges from soft panels to polyester / epoxy panels, which certainly match your skill level. But that's not all! Even if you are sailing independently, we are happy to help you whenever you want. In addition to the description of the surf spot and the best position in the line-up, we will also show you how to twist your technique. Often, these are small changes that can make you navigate to the next level. By using a video and photo analysis (as you are within reach of our zoom), you will receive optical feedback on your browsing technique.

Often considered as the Hawaii of the Atlantic by the surfers, this volcanic archipelago emerges from the ocean to receive swells from all directions. These swells end up in a great variety of reefs and lava points, with power that can be compared to all the good surfing destinations.
Scorching in the sun and surfing with shorties consist of the uncountable attractions of the Canarian surf.
Lanzarote has a great quality wave, radical and powerful such as the waves from Hawaii’ North Shore, less the distance to travel over there…Surf is concentrated between Famara and La Santa.
Paddle surf along sandy beach breaks of Fuerteventura and Cojalero on North East zone.
Tenerife has plenty crazy spots North East and South East coast.
Mellow breaks under the sun in Maspalomas South of Gran Canaria and tons of spots Full North coast.
From October to April, 1m to 5 meters waves unroll on the best exposed reefs. Tropical hurricanes coming from the South of the United States also send some pretty good Western waves in August and September.
WINDS & TIDES
Winds are ruling your surfing days. Check their directions and forces and you should have a wonderful session. From October to April, in winter, the wind is weakest and E/NE oriented. It switches to the North in early summer when the conditions are little and often onshore.Prefer morning or sunset sessions.
Tides are around 2 meters, rather high and change very slightly the aspect of the spots in shallow water.
Be careful to the strength of some spots and to the locals’ protection. Bring boots: if not, your feet may look like holy cheese, transformed by lava and sea-urchins!Wear an integral 3/2mm wetsuit from November to May because the water is chilly (around 18°C). In summer, you will be fine with just a springsuit (24°C) for the windy mornings.
La Cicer : Hyper crowded. Multipics, fun wave which rolls a long way. Great for all levels of surfers.
El Lloret : Nice left over 200m but often crowded
Molokai : Great for longboard. Good when swell is not high. Cool ambiance.
Boquines : Super hollow right. Works well in summer. Quite crowdy.
El alto : Intermediate level accepted. Works with heavy swell. Fast and deep tubes.
El Fronton : Great for mad bodyboarders.
La Guancha : excellent quality pic. Short and nervous rights.
El Confital : Mythic right wave. Fast, powerful and deep tubes. Beautiful surrounding area. Watch out for localism.
Salinetas : Deep tubes that only works on mid tide. Watch out for razor reef.
Playa del Ingles : Great for all levels. Summer spot only.
El Faro : Often working well with nice rights. Located in Maspalomas touristic station in the dunes.
Las Mujeres : Perfect for bodyboarders. Heavy shoulder and bowl.

We surf a lot and for a long time in the fortunate islands, as they were nicknamed.
From the South of Gran Canaria, to Tenerife’s coasts, going through Lanzarote and its neighbour Fuerteventura, the Atlantic’s Hawaii, the archipelago is well-known for its waves.
Nice in winter, always some swell, mild water and sun, barrels reachable by plane from France.We like their moon-like scenery, the fiesta and Latin atmosphere at night.
An excellent compromise : the warranty of going on a low-cost trip not too far away and the certainty of having waves of great quality.
Geologically speaking these islands are quite young as we reckon that they are 30 million years old.
The dating of carbon traces back to the first settlements in 200 before J-C, but they might have been inhabited before that.
The origin of the first inhabitants, referring themselves to Guanches, remains the matter of theories.
We talk about Celtic or Nordic emigrants. However it is likely that the Berbers, coming from Africa the neighbour country, have been the first settlers.
The archipelago, off Morocco, consisting of seven major islands and six minor islands (the most important ones -Graciosa, Alegranza, Lobos – are located around Lanzarote) is expanding 450 km covering a total area of 7300 km².
For historical and political reasons, the Canary Islands are part of Spain, but geographers fasten it to Macaronesia, a region composed of by the volcanic archipelago gathering the Azores, Madeira and Cape Verde.
The landscape from a very uncommon volcanism, with various mountainous forms (caldrons, cones, “malpaises” which are kind of volcanic rock chaos, pipes etc…).
Geologically, the islands are made of lava and basalt with a fertile soil, especially generous after the rain which is becoming more and more uncommon.
In Tenerife, the Teide is the highest mountain of Spain (3 718m).
Coasts are interrupted for the most part by wide sand beaches, protected by reefs, forelands and profound bays. However, we can find in some regions many cliffs and other abrupt zones like in Gran Canaria’s Western and Northern coasts.
The weak rainfall and the islands’ own topography find some streams, but not any rivers.
A valid national ID (- 10 years) or a Passport. Arrecive is the capital of Lanzarote’s island.
Spanish but english and german is spoken in hotels & restaurants
No particular health recommendation is advised
TIME DIFFERENCES :
- 1 hour all year long.
The Canary Islands are located in the middle of the Atlantic, swept away by “alizés” winds and exposed to the mild marine currents bathing their coasts. The average temperature is 22° C (with little variations) except in the mountains where the temperature is lower. In summer, they seldom go beyond 31°C. The Canary Islands are also an ecological treasure, more particularly for their flora.
DRIVING CONDITIONS :
You just need a driver’s license (French, Belgium) valid in the whole European Union.
The tap water is drinkable and can be drink without any fear. Power-points are set up in the islands for the de-salting.The electric current: 220 V
CURRENCY : The Euro.Banks are usually open Monday until Friday from 9.AM to 2.PM and some agencies are also open on Saturdays from 9.AM to 1.PM.In almost every important city and watering-places, you can withdraw money from the ATM machines with Eurocard MasterCard and Visa.
