The Canary Islands are known as the European Hawaii. A name the islands truly deserve, because during the European autumn and winter seasons the beaches and reefs on Fuerteventura and Lanzarote provide excellent surfing conditions for every type of surfer from beginner to advance. We're looking forward to sharing our enthusiasm for surfing and also the fantastic beaches of Fuerteventura so grab your board and come join us in Otro Modo Surfschool!
Our surf camp in Costa Calma offer accommodation in bungalows on the beach. Our bungalows are situated only 30 meters away from the beach, so you can hear the sound of the sea when you wake up. The bungalows are equipped with kitchen (inclusive: fridge, stove, cutlery and dishes), satellite television, bathroom with shower and toilet, terrace and a roof terrace with sea view. Within walking distance are several restaurants, bars, shops, a supermarket and a night club. All bungalows are situated next to each other so you can enjoy the evening together with your fellow surfers and let it gently fade away. The bungalows are surrounded by palm trees, bougainvillea and hibiscus and have two swimming pools.
We will pick you up from your hotel or from the surf camp and drive you to our office, where we prepare the surf equipment (surf board, wetsuit, rash vest) for the day. On your first day we select the right wetsuit and surf board according to your surfing level, needs and desires. Afterwards we decide depending on the wave and wind conditions to which beach we will go for the surf lessons. Then we head off to the beach.
Every day we drive with our 4x4's to the surf spot/beach, which provides the best waves for the surfing level of our surf students. On the way you get to know more about Fuerteventura, its landscape and its people. At the beach we first point out the currents, the waves and explain the important safety points to our students. Then we explain and demonstrate the task to learn for the day. Just a gentle warm up and then everybody is off to the water.
At all times our surf instructors are in the water with you, helping you catching waves and give you feedback on how to improve your surf technique. As we place extra value on a small instructor - student - ratio (maximum is 1:6), we can teach every surf student individually and design the surf lessons according to the learning progress of our students. Needless to say there will be enough time to answer all your questions about tides, currents, waves, winds and to give you extra advice for your surfing.
After a little break you will have time to practice the surf techniques learned in the first part of the lessons. Of course our surf instructors will be with you the whole time. Twice a week you will be filmed for our video coaching. The latest surf lessons also include radio helmet coaching! The radio helmet coaching will be like a live video coaching, were a surf instructor can coach you while you are actually up and riding. A great way to improve your surfing skills and learn complex maneuvers in a short time!
