"Recommendations!"

Great people! Lots of smiles each day, lots of positive energy, a happy place :) A perfect way to combine vacation with some sports and if you really want to learn surfing, or just have some surf fun do it here! It’s perfect for young, old, solo or families. All the surf instructors and their lessons were very very good and addressing individual needs. Most of the yoga lessons in the afternoon were perfectly designed to stretch the muscles after an exhausting but super fun surf day. If you want to explore the island I would definitely recommend taking a car, Carol can arrange this. All in all an excellent time with a great team, each one of them..and Carol, lovely Carol ❤️

"First time surfer"

Highly recommend!!!

The daily surf lessons are amazing! The instructors are really attentive, they make sure to cover the theory and then give plenty of time in the sea to practice. The allocated instructor will coach you and help you get cruising on the surf board in no time! The lessons accommodate all levels of surfing experience and as a novice surfer I was thrilled to be standing on the board after just one lesson.

The afternoon yoga classes complement the surfing perfectly by helping relax the muscles and reducing the pain the next day.

All the staff at Lanzasurf are really helpful and friendly. I was travelling alone but felt like I was amongst friends.

I would recommend this experience to anyone looking to explore surfing and enjoy an activity filled holiday in the sun.

"Lanzasurf Awesomeness :)"

Loved the positivity of the Lanzasurf team, as well as the community spirit! Instructors were organised but easy going and adaptive to the group's needs from beginners to experienced surfers. House was very comfortable and great view of the dunes and sea - great place for morning coffee and chill.

The surf instructors were AMAZING ! So professional and learned so many things about surfing, the ocean , the waves and even the weather. ( we now know that static electrictity comes before a hail storm ;) ) . Also the YOGA was great, it helped keeping our muscles lean as well as the massage provided by a real physiotherapist. If you really want to learn surfing, go to Lanzasurf!

the way the teachers use different techniques to explain: using the sea, the sand, their body, our bodies, the boards and so on.

Die einfache Art und die Atmosphäre: die Surflehrer Patrizia, Goardon y Sito simplemente wonderfull People.

Toiréasa Hennessy

It was an amazing experience. I travelled alone and met lots of new and lovely people. The accommodation provides the basics and perfect environment to get to know others. The location is perfect for people trying to get away for the fast pace and city life. The surfing classes are brilliant, they are divided into groups of ability and adapted around tide times. Also, very informative. I would suggest all levels of surfers will enjoy these classes and the great waves. Yoga classes were also brilliant and helped ease out any sore muscles after surfing but at your own level. All enjoyed with sun and beautiful volcanic landscape.

"muy muy muy bien"

I loved the instructors Gordan and Patricia. It was easy to feed off Gordons passion for surfing and his vast knowledge. Patricia had great positive energy that kept you going even when the body was battered.

The hole thing was organised well and drew a crowd of great people. Loved my time in famara and Alba the yoga instructor is amazing too

"Ik wil terug!"

De surflessen waren geweldig. Helaas kon één surfdag niet doorgaan ivm het weer maar hiervoor boden ze een top alternatief namelijk skateboarden. Daar leer je ook goed de surftechniek van en was erg leuk! Snacks/lunch had iets uitgebreider gemogen, er was bijv. geen sandwich voor vegetariers.

​I have had one of the best experiences of my life thanks to Lanzasurf! I totally recommend it and I will definitely go back. Outstanding professionals and wonderful human beings. I would rate them with an 100 if possible!

I had never tried surfing before and both the surfing, the place and the people exceeded all expectations! The Lanzasurf teachers are awesome, taking care of both beginners and more advanced surfers as needed. And Famara beach has to be one of the best places there is to learn surfing. I would definitely go back if I have the chance. And I'm definitely hooked on surfing for life! Thank's Gabby, Patricia, Gordon and Evandro for an awesome week!

One week was awesome but actually too short, I would recommend to go for 2-3 weeks and do surfing with brakes of some "free days" in between to really get everything out of the place. Since we did surfing in the days and yoga in the evenings we didn't get much time to explore the island or chill out. The yoga is off course optional though, but so nice and good for sore surfing bodies, and taking place outside (sometimes seeing the sunset).

The Lanzasurf house is perfect if you like socializing with other people a lot. From the second you arrive until you leave there is people to surf, yoga, eat and hang out with. I traveled with my partner and we rented the private room which had a nice (topside) double-bed. The only real downside was the lack of hot water for more than perhaps 2-3 people to shower fast. And the cleanliness for some people, although it didn't bother me (wasn't too bad).

Instructors are very professional and very committed. Attention is paid to all details that make a good surfing technique. After spending a week there, I stand on the board without any difficulty and start to enjoy "surfing" (turning, trying to catch a green wave). Accommodation is close and fosters new friendships as it hosts most surfers.

Everything written before me is true! The village is full of happy surfers, the school is the best you can find, the waves are for surfers of all levels including first timers. restaurants and shops nearby are rather cheap, my favorite is El Chiringuito and I feel like I lost myself and found simultaneously. Don't be afraid going on your own only, I met only one couple, other guys had seen first time each other and the atmosphere is very special. Big thanks to Patricia, Gabby, Evandro, and Gordon for patience and excellent quality lessons.
