    Gentle Toughness

    CONS Cons: Book yoga retreats made a transposition error from the Calima surf website onto their platform. We had to pay extra for six yoga classes as they were not included.

    PROS Pros: Humour, bi-lingual, positive, challenging yoga that suited all yogis' needs, live piano for relaxation and tea to end. Wonderful studio where a natural yoga teacher helps people to be just themselves.

    Organizer response: Thanks for leaving your review. However, we are very sad about your cons because as you can read in the emails sent you before your booking, we explain you very clear what includes the price (you can see below a copy/page from those emails. Despite our feedback, you went to our manager school to claim about that and he generously gifted you and your companion one yoga lesson for free to add to the 2 yoga lessons included in the pack, if you took 6 yoga lessons during your week, you have only paid 3 and not 6 as you say in this review. You can read below the same as you have in the emails exchanged before your booking; 7 nights accommodation in A PRIVATE ROOM at surf house in Famara 5 days surf lesson Special soft material surfboards for beginners, neoprene and Red Lycra 10 to 13hr theoretical and practical lessons 13hr lunch on the beach (Monday to Friday) with hot sandwiches, water and fruit juice 13.30 to 15hr surfing for free under the supervision of a monitor (Monday to Friday) Photo-analysis, common mistakes beginners. 2 sessions of Yoga (1:30h each) in the afternoon/evening (after surfing) Diploma level 1 (25 hours) Free internet Aquatic pictures of your surf holidays Qualified (BSA) instructors and lifeguards Insurance Tourist Information

    "We had an amazing week of surf with the people of Calima Surf in the town of Famara. The conditions were very good the instructors are very good and the town is very nice. The accommodation is very close to the surfing spot within walking distance. We are booking it again to escape from London's winter!"

    "My seven and eight-year old were really keen to try surfing and Calima Surf were amazing in their explanations and communications ahead of our lesson. I was confident that the boys' safety and enjoyment was paramount to them. We had the most fantastic afternoon. Anita was perfect with my boys, encouraging them, and helping them to catch a wave. They both stood up almost immediately and the two hours sped by. We went back again and hired wetsuits and boards as their choice of activity for our last day too. They've not stopped talking about it still! Thank you, Calima Surf."

    "The normal class schedule seems to be seven nights. However, Calima Surf School was very accommodating my request to go for a long weekend from Friday to Sunday in December. Early morning flight from London on a cold Friday morning, arriving in time for the afternoon class on a warm sandy beach in Lanzarote and full-day classes on Saturday. It was great! It was possible to hire equipment for Sunday and put your skills into practice. The team were very friendly, fun, and give great coaching tips. I'm looking forward to going back again soon! I wish I could have spent the full week and I would have learned so much!"

    "Even though I came with a very open mind, my expectations were definitely exceeded. In one week, I feel like I had accomplished a lot in terms if improving my (beginner) surfing skills and knowledge. The teachers were so helpful. The apartment also gave me a great experience. I met people from all around Europe throughout all different parts of life, yet everyone was really cool and open minded."
