Had a brilliant week in Famara with Calima surf school - massively recommend, just do it!
Sergi and Sara in the shop were very welcoming and friendly and the instructors were great and made it all very fun :) Conrad especially was really attentive and excellent at explaining surfing techniques to complete beginners. (Thank you :))
It was a great way to meet people staying in the surf house and in the lessons as there was always different people around - as a solo traveler it's easy to make friends. Some people go for 5 days surfing lessons like I did, some are there just for the day or morning, some stay in the surf house and rent the equipment but don't take the lessons. You can fit easily to what you want. Also if you want a day off you can switch the days easily, they are flexible.
I took the package with 2 yoga lessons included and they were just beautiful. I even went for a third one as it was so helpful for my (aching) body, and Carol the yoga instructor is really lovely and helping you a lot.
The surf house has everything you need and was kept very clean all the time. Really, the cleaner came every day for a few hours and was very thorough.
