Lanzarote, or Lanza as locals call it, is the most easterly island of the Canary archipelago, which belongs to Spain. It is located in the Atlantic Ocean, 100 kilometers west of the African coast and approximately 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Spain. Lanzarote is the most volcanic of the Canary Islands. Its magnetic, almost lunar landscape boasting over 200 kilometers of coastline and countless beaches, together with the charm of its architecture exclusively low-rise houses, all painted white with either blue or green woodwork make it truly different from any other island of the archipelago. Aside from being a Mecca for all surf, kite surf, windsurf, stand-up-paddle, diving, snorkeling, fishing and sailing enthusiasts, Lanzarote is a great playground for earth sports such as cycling, mountain biking, trekking, quad, horse riding, golfing or simply enjoying a relaxing time in one of the islands many spa centers.

Testimonials

  • Review by Stanito B.

    "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."

  • Review by a surfer from Italy

    "We've decided to attend a one day surf course with no previous experience at all and it has been great! All the teachers were very professional and friendly and they were following us very carefully, helping and suggesting when needed. I'm no good at surfing but in just one day I've learnt much more than expected! I would recommend Lanzasurf to anyone who wants to improve their surfing abilities or just give a try for one day."

  • Review by Antoine from Rouen, France

    "What a trip! We did one week of surfari, chasing waves with our instructors Gilmar and Max. First of all, a very big thanks to Gilmar, the best instructor I had since 12 years of surfing. Gilmar is very pedagogue, generous, enthusiastic and passionate. He has a lot of knowledge and experience and do its best to transmit all of this. He knows all the key people on the island and he always brought us to the best waves with no people! We had beautiful waves also with Max, who is a very nice and cool guy! He brought us to really nice peaks and gave us confidence during a 3m session. Max showed us also nice parts of the island. Mathilde and Evandro are really nice, well organized and helpful. They made everything to make our stay perfect, and it was! Thank you! "

    "Ive had guiding with a couple of schools in Lanzarote but for sure Lanzasurf is the best. My surf guide was excellent: great guy to surf with, great tips and always managed to find the best waves for me. The video analysis is invaluable, very precise and gives me the key things I need to work on. Once again I feel my surfing has improved and I had a blast. Will be back."

  • Review by Sophie from Switzerland

    "Famara is the perfect place to chill and surf. I booked the surf course for one week but stayed another week because I liked it so much. Lanzasurf treats you like a family member and takes good care of you. Groups are small and they adapt the lessons to your level. I stayed in the surf house which was the perfect place to get to know the other surfers. I will definitely be back."
