The surf instructors will be in the water with you pointing the best waves, helping you catch them, and giving feedback to help you improve your surfing technique. After your surf lesson, Kailua will bring you back to your hotel, apartment, or surf camp.

Surfing with Lanzasurf at Famara Beach

The surf course is taught at Playa de Famara, a 6 kilometer long white sandy beach which receives quality waves year-round. There will be 5 days of courses. The course takes place from 10.30 to 15.00. The description below shows how a day with Lanzasurf will look like:

At 9.50 you will be asked to be at Lanzasurf School. We want to make the most of our surfing lessons so at 10.30 we want to start in the water!

We guarantee that 4 hours 30 min per day of theoretical and practical teaching with qualified instructors in turquoise waters will take your surfing to the next level.

The surf lessons are mostly practical but you will also have theoretical exercises where you will get to understand better the waves, the environment and the ocean.

After the lessons you might want to enjoy the sunny weather at the beach, visit some touristic place or just have some beers.

During your surfing holiday in Famara you will be living the chilled surfing lifestyle. The village is full of people from everywhere that are looking for a relaxing place and the best waves.

You will get to know the local people and enjoy the nice tapas and the best fish that the island can offer you.

So you can't forget to bring your flip flops and bikini!

  • Review by Annae

    "I would like to highlight that this trip should NOT be advertised as a surf and yoga retreat. Lanzasurf provides good surf lessons, it is originally a surf school. However, the yoga lessons delivered by the school's owner, in his own garden, are just stretching classes and are delivered in an amateur way, without safety instructions, adjustments or explanations (and in an approximate English). I went to one yoga class only instead of the 5 sessions I was planning to attend. "

    "I am a yoga teacher myself and was looking forward to attend the yoga sessions, but unfortunately it was not was I was expecting at all. Luckily, I found an amazing yoga teacher in Famara (Alba Balada) and went to her classes instead. She was leading the yoga sessions for Lanzasurf last year (which may explain the good reviews from previous travelers), but is not working with them anymore."

    "I would definitely recommend Lanzasurf for the surf lessons they provide but I think they should move away from advertising yoga classes unless they start working with a qualified yoga instructor (and have a proper yoga shala/studio instead of someone's backyard). Until then I suggest that this trip is not advertised on BookYogaRetreat as it is a bot misleading."

    "Unfortunately, I don't think I will book a yoga retreat again through BookYogaRetreat, as my first experience was very disappointing."

    ""

    "Response from Lanzasurf:"

    "Hi Anne,"

    "We feel dissappointed that you didn´t enjoy all the activities of Lanzasurf but we appreciate that you have taken your time to explain us the reasons."

    "We think that the yoga that we do here, at Lanzasurf, is the best compliment for our surf lessons which is the main activity because it takes 5 hours of your day. As you said, we used to just work with another teacher independent from us (we just have kind words for Alba). We haven´t stopped working with her but more and more we tend to work with Surf & Yoga instructors because they fully understand what have you´ve been through during the 5 hours Surf Course. During the yoga sessions we focus on the muscles that we have been working on the beach and we design a 5 days plan that helps you relax your mind and body so that at the end of your holidays you feel with all your batteries charged. "

    "Regarding to the spot where the yoga sessions take place, which seems to amaze most of our guests, we respect every ones opinion. When we started with the yoga sessions we did it in a indoor studio. During this time we´ve received many enquiries asking for the yoga to be on the beach or outdoor."

    "We´ve always wanted to make the difference between what standard city studios offer, running away from the audio with the sound of the sea or waterfalls and surrounded by four walls."

    "We want to offer an experience and we think that its an asset to be offering yoga sessions under Lanzarote´s stars, enjoying a volcanic skyline view and with real waves soundtrack. Its the same with surfing, we dont focus for you to stand up on a board, what we really work in is you having the best surfing experience in Lanzarote. And we are happy that you had such an amazing surfing experience! "

    "We want to thank you for the review. The not-so-good ones are the ones that make us want to be better on what we do. Lastly we kindly ask you not to blame Book Yoga Retreats for your experience as they are really professionals in what they do. "

    "Thank you once again and aloha, LANZASURF TEAM"

    "Lanzasurf was everything I expected and a whole lot more. I had such a wonderful 5 days and came back feeling mentally and physically relaxed and happy. The surf teachers are thorough and tailor to your needs, and most of all really lovely people. I would highly recommend this for a short break (or long if you have the time ) and want to learn to surf in a friendly and welcoming environment."

    "10 points to LANZASURF Family! the surf experience has been incredible, my boyfriend and I had so much fun! the instructors are amazing, not just for making us surfing in just 5 days but also for all the theorical lessons after lunch cause they gave us a complete education for what concerns surfing from now on (planning surf vacations, respecting surf rules, geographic and scientific factors that come together to create waves,...). The yoga teacher was lovely, a precious appointment with relax and very inspiring for my future. we met amazing people from all over Europe in the sharing house that are now friends and we promised to visit each other. I wish that vacation could last forever! It s been the very first time I cried at the moment of our return. I didn't want to go home! I cannot say how magic this experience has been for me. Thank you so much!"

    "Lanzasurf was brilliant - the surf instructors were very knowledgeable and took their time to ensure that everyone understood the theory and practical elements of surfing.

  • Review by Paul from Bournemouth, England

    "Yoga - Being fairly new to yoga I wasn’t sure what to expect but I needn’t of worried. The classes were held in a relaxed location with a fantastic view. The instruction was excellent and due to the classes being kept to small numbers it was tailored to all levels and languages. The daily variations of yoga styles was a superb insight and something I particularly enjoyed. I couldn’t recommend Famara yoga highly enough. Lanzasurf have got it right, good instruction, a friendly inclusive vibe and a professional set up. They ensure the instructor to student ratio is good and tailor for all levels with student feedback on every wave. I have previously been on a more expensive surf course before and without doubt Lanzasurf was far superior, my confidence on a board has improved massively. The instructors priority is surfing and learning to surf in a fun environment not student turnover. Their passion for the sport is infectious and I would highly recommend them. "

  • Review by Sheetal from London, UK

    "I came to Famara to get over my fear of the sea and to overcome the psychological effects of a broken ankle after the first time I surfed years ago. Naturally I was apprehensive in the beginning, and by the end I couldn't wait to come home and organize another surf trip! My instructor Gilmar pushed me and believed in me, although I did have some frustrated moments. But we worked through those together and by the end I took more waves than I could have imagined. Evandro and Mathilde are a lovely (and ridiculously attractive!) couple who own the school and are dedicated to making you feel at home and as part of a family. I stayed at the surf house which was good value for money and a great base to explore the beautiful village of Famara. I couldn't recommend these guys more. It was not just a surfing trip, it was an experience. Go and try it!"About the yoga, I would like to add...The yoga was a nice and relaxing contrast to the surfing, but I also felt challenged and stretched, ready for the next day. I had not tried Kundalini yoga before, and it was great to try a new style. Each teacher (Alba, Sandra and Tara) was different and I would recommend that you try them all as they all have something great to offer."

Kadiva was the most friendly, welcoming and lovely person I've had the pleasure of meeting, and she made our whole stay a delight. Our instructor, Nagai, was absolutely perfect - I can't believe I stood up on my second day in the sea! Amazing group of people, beautiful place, super-relaxing - everything we wanted and more. I want to go back! Thank you, thank you, thank you! "

  • Review by Marja

    "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)."

    "Great experience surfing and learning yoga in Lanzarote. The Lanzasurf team was great as they were really responsive, which helped us organize our trip very quickly. They provided accommodation near the surf school, which was not luxurious but comfortable enough. Our surf instructors were Gordon and Gilmar and it was great being taught by them. They really care about their "students" and make sure to adapt to your level. The yoga sessions on one of Famara's rooftops were really nice and easy, made for beginners as well as for more experienced people. Very relaxing and perfect activity to close an intense surf day!"

  • Review by Jorge Ressia from Switzerland

    "Really good experience. We did 2 days of surfing, it was my first time, and I really enjoyed it. The instructors were awesome, they were highly prepared, they had a lot of patience and there are constantly checking what you are doing and giving you tips."

    "What I really enjoyed, is that they do not only teach you surf but at lunchtime and during the surf school they try to discuss things that go beyond normal courses. During my two days we discussed wave formation, physics of wave formation (good level of I might add), weather patterns, how to find out the right conditions for surfing, temperature, pressure, wind, etc, and ecology. "

    "Really cool people and above all they are super fun. I am definitely coming back."

  • Review by M Johnson from Halifax, Canada

    "Nothing more to say. The Lanzasurf family welcomed us with open hearts and entertained us with lots of laughs, great stories, and surprisingly delicious sandwiches (or maybe I was just too hungry from all the surfing to notice). It's amazing how much your surfing will improve in only a few short days no matter what level you start at, and to share the waves with fellow students and teachers from all over the world is just amazing. Already missing Famara-dise."

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. "

    "I apologise for my late feedback. I did a week in Famara end of September or early October and the weather and waves condition were amazing!!Firstly, I'd like to say a big thank you to Mathilde for her swift responsiveness and her patience with my zillions questions prior booking my trip. She was of a great help and made this trip happened.Also big thank you to all of the surf instructors, Gordon, Evandro, Gilmar and Tom, you guys are ace and really made us feel part of your little surf family! I certainly will never forget Gilmar's infamous quotes "boum boum in" and "guys, be sensorial with the waves"... That really cracked me up.I highly recommend these guys and Lanzasurf Family, I'm sure we'll meet again."

  • Review by Hanna Bing from Frankfurt, Germany

    "Even though I had surfed before, I tried not to be biased by what I had learned before. Lanzasurf Instructors are serious surfers that know what is important and how to teach you, help you to improve or correct your skills very successfully.We only had a 3-day-course but enjoyed every minute of it. The courses were rather small so every participant got it's time needed and was able to share their experiences with the other students (which pretty much all had different skill levels).Since I came there with an injured knee in the healing process, the instructor took care that I would not stress my knee too much and taught me how to manage surfing without putting too much preassure on it. It made me really feel like being part of a family. We ended up spending our evenings together with the other students and had a very nice time at Famara.It was an incredible and also exhausting time and we can recommend learning how to surf as long as you are willing to learn and listen to what is told. If you are just going to Famara to have fun at the beach, do it on your own."

    "I've had guiding with a couple of schools in Lanzarote but for Lanzasurf are the best. This was the first time I had surfed with Gilmar, and he was excellent. Great guy to surf with, great tips and really took the time to show us more of the Island. For me, a guide comes in to their own and really earns their money when they can find you good waves when it's flat. Gilmar managed just this. Evandro's video analysis is invaluable, very precise and gives me just the key things I need to work on. Once again I feel my surfing has improved again and I had a blast. Will be back."

    "Lanzasurf team is very professional and empathic. At anytime, they take care of their visitors: from technical to personal issues. Combining time for surf and time for yoga, it has been really powerful! Nothing to add to this amazing experience!"

    "I gotta say that having a good teacher makes a difference! I tried surfing many times before, and only with those guys, I get to stand on the board, and the feeling was amaaaazing! You can see how much they care about your learning, they never give up, and because they enjoy so much with this lifestyle, they really make you part of it! They want you to feel the same! Thanks Evandro, Matilde, Leandro, and all the friends I shared those days with!"

    "I had the best time. Met the nicest people and it felt like family. The island is incredible and the energy is the best. I felt completely happy at all times. In terms of surfing, Evandro Matilde and Leandro are the best instructors. They are patient and always in the best mood. They were very happy for us each time we improved and I'm very grateful for that. Very good exercises and I improved very fast. It's nice to go far away and still feel like home. Thanks and I will be coming back."

    "Back again for the third time and will be back again. I came for four days guiding as Lanzarote has some of the best waves in Europe. The mix of Lea and Evandro was really helpful. Both surf to a very high level and bring a unique insight to improving my surfing. They are able to find waves to help you develop. For example one day, the morning was spent surfing a beach break solo while coming in every 30 mins for video analysis and then the afternoon was spent at La Santa on super clean lefts. The surf house has one of the best atmospheres and was always friendly. With the addition of the new surf house manager Oyana she helps everyone out and really helps first timers settle in quickly. Highly recommended."

    "It was the best Christmas ever! ;) It was a very satisfying experience for me to be with Lanzasurf. "

    "Mathilde takes care of organisation. She does it on a personal basis (I doubt you can get it in big surf schools). Evandro is a coach and you will feel that you are in good hands, when learning surfing. Two other instructors (Nagai and Asier) keep it all very active, alive and fun. They are really good instructors. I am very satisfied with my experience with Lanzasurf."

  • Review by Son from Zurich, 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. The groups are small, not like at other schools 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."

    "A nice relaxed atmosphere for learning in, with only one other student besides us. The techniques shown to us were easy to pick up and provided good results. The lesson felt very personally suited to us."

  • Review by Elise and Nico from France

    "An atmosphere that is both serious and relaxed at the same time. We were provided with great advice regarding the islands various spots and how to pick the best one depending on the conditions. Once in the water, Evandro took us to the peak and gave us precious tips on how to position ourselves to catch the wave, timing, riding the wave, turning and getting back to the line-up. We felt the course was perfectly adapted to our level. "
