Homegrown offers a unique surfing experience in a safe and friendly environment. All they do is surf: surf school, surf camp, surf shop, and board rental.

"Better then I expected "
I just spend the most amazing two weeks at the homegrown camp. The instructors helped me to improve my surfing so much in those two weeks (I was mostly surfing with Greg) and I had so much fun in the camp as well because of the amazing people that stayed with me.
In our free time we went on a short trip to Lobos island, hiking a vulcano or just went to the beach to have dinner.
I highly recommend Homegrown and maybe I’ll go back next year :) thank you for the good memories!

"Best surf camp ever "
Casa Hilda is an excellent place for solo travelers, you can really feel super chill atmosphere. I had classes with 3 different instructors and three of them provided me with all the tips and tricks that made surfing one of the best experiences in my life. We didn't stick to just one beach which was super cool, because you got to see the island.

"good waves every single day!"
i like the waves provided by the different spots of fuerteventura,
there are some nice reef breaks,
you feel safe on them, they are not crowded (but maybe thanks covid), and their waves are incredibly constent
i like my instructor as well: FLAVIO, who was passionate, very helpful either in the water or before each course by teaching us some basic about understanding the reef and the tide...
about the accomodation. nothing extravagant of course, but functionnal: close from the center of the city, very very close from the supermarket which is super convenient, clean, provided in bedsheets...
(i stress this point because i already sleep on a matress in the past ;-) )
in a nutshell, everythings is done to make sure you will catch the more and best waves as possible, and that is the purpose of the trip!

fabio the surf instructor is so funny and really professional! I loved his humor and caring way of teaching (thanks so much!)
manu the other surf instructor was also very professional and really down to earth. he had really good surf tips and was very friendly (thanks a lot!)
_ The pickup driver Denni was super warm and welcoming!
For me, the people made this surf camp!
+/- 4 people were in the house and there was a very nice vibe and I made some good friends.
The 1 bathroom for more people was not always practical when we wanted to take a shower after a surf session.
other than that, really cozy and perfect surfcamp! :)

"Life changing experience "
Fuerteventura is such a beautiful Island with great energy and nice people! If you like to chill, party, wander, swim, surf and meet new people than this place is one of the best one in Europe!
The accommodation was great, I’ve met many great people there and living in the share house is really fun! If you wish to be alone, you’re alone but then you would miss such interesting conversations and topics and that would be shame.
Fabio and Tito are the best teachers you could wish, both of them are completely different and have different ways how to teach but they are so helpful if you have struggles! And they can teach you pretty well! Plus it’s great to see them in action!

I had an amazing experience with Homegrown, they indeed have very good teachers. Greg was really focused in enabling your progress. If you are seeking to indeed improve your surfing skills, this place is the best. I really liked that we were trying different spots each day, so we had the chance to work on specific skills and this also gave the opportunity to experience the island better.

"Best surfcamp in Fuerteventura "
Definitely a beautiful experience, both for the accommodation and for the surf course.
the mood at Casa Hilda is relaxed, they are all very helpful, open to new friendships and experiences (I am 19 years old, I came here completely alone and come home with friends from all over the world). The age in my course week (September) ranged from 18 to 30.
the surf course is perfectly organized; every time you do it
progress is placed in the most appropriate "group" to make the lessons always engaging, rewarding and above all stimulating.
the organization is impeccable and the staff is always very helpful.

It was a wonderful experience to be there. Starting by a warm welcome from everyone working for the homegrown shop. Going on to great people in the hostel. Finished by teachers that are very good, kind, patient with all pupils and in for a laugh anytime.

"Friends for life"
Het hostel was erg gezellig en sfeervol waardoor we gelijk in de stemming kwamen van het surfleventje en het samen dingen ondernemen met mensen die je daar ter plekke ontmoet. Het surfen zelf was heel leuk en de leraren waren erg goed en hadden veel geduld. Wat wij ook erg leuk vonden was dat de surfleraren er voor zorgden dat er dingen werden georganiseerd met alle mensen van de surfschool, zoals eten feesten, waardoor iedereen elkaar beter leert kennen en je je echt op je plek voelt. Wij komen zeker nog eens terug!
