Calima Surf Spain Surf Camp Program

At this camp, you will face new challenges and could burn 450 calories every hour! SUP, or stand up paddle, is a relatively new sport in Spain. There is an evidence that it was used centuries ago by some of the South Pacific's first inhabitants to move between the islands. It has come into fashion on the Canary Islands in recent years, as it is an easier sport in all its forms and can be practiced by anyone regardless of age. SUP is a fun and different way of enjoying the sea. The sensation of floating in the water as you observe Lanzarote's diverse seabed and spectacular views is a truly rewarding experience. It's also good for your health!

Location

Lanzarote

Lanzarote, as a natural place, offers unique characteristics of Spain. A part of the great extensions of different lava typologies that you can find in the Timanfaya and Malpaìs de la Corona Natural Parks are fields of wind sands (el jable de Famara) marine, and coast ambients like no other. El Rìo, between La Graciosa and Lanzarote and the southwest beaches. Where a multitude of species and subspecies of flora and fauna co-exist and well adapted to these conditions and therefore really endemic. 17% of plants, 60% of nesting birds, 40% of insect, and 100% of reptiles are endemic to the island.

According to Storm-Rider-Guide 98, Lanzarote is the "European Hawaii", with its mystic and volcanic extensions and its great variety of waves, from the perfect classic waves to the typically isolated beaches with small waves perfect for beginners.

Lanzarote and other Canary islands constitute a crucial cross between Europe, Africa, and America. They are located 1000 kilometers away from peninsular Spain and 100 kilometers away from African coasts. North of Lanzarote has situated a hundred small island called archipelago Chinijo (small).

Lanzarote is by far the northernmost island of the Canaries. This means it is the most exposed to north, northeast, and northwest swells, which are the most common swells in the Canary Islands. Therefore, this island gets the best and most frequent waves. There are more than 30 high-quality surfing spots on Lanzarote. Some of them are:

  • San Juan: A tube leftwards bowling wave with the south-facing wind, at high tide the right can also be ridden, the leftwards wave has two peaks that in good conditions are just one wave, when there is west swell, only the second peak can be ridden, if the swell is north with a little bit of breeze from the south, you’re guaranteed an incredible surfing experience.
  • El Muelle: Incredible left-facing wave with 2 barreling sections, watch your head on the second section, more than a few have taken the risk at the end and messed it up. The right can also be ridden, it’s great for maneuvers as it’s much less barreling than the left.
  • El Codito: Found on the west end of the beach, often breaks well leftwards and at 50 meters, you can have a good time riding it rightwards.

Famara Beach

Famara Beach is one of the most famous spots for surfing in Lanzarote. In Famara Beach, you will see dozens of different types of waves. It very much depends on the state of the sandbanks on the seabed and with every strong swell the low points tend to change. As well as El Codito, you can find el Molino, Los Bungalos, el Bunquer, el Palo, the kiters zone and el Papelillo. If you come to Famara beach, you come to a surfing paradise and tranquility.

Located in the center of the Natural Reserve of Archipelago Chinijo, this is a unique place with a special charm that you cannot miss. The beach has a length of approximately six miles of sand with different types of surf spots perfect for all surf levels and the waves are guaranteed because of the constants swells between north and west, sheltered by a cliff of 600 meters high and extraordinary views. Famara Beach has been recognized numerous times as one of the best beaches in Spain and its protected status make it remains virtually untouched.
