"Ricky is a STAR!"
My surfing lessons with Ricky were sooooo fun! He is very very possitive and amazing person, could not ask for a better instructor! Surfing Camp was so so so cozy, with amazing view to the ocean. Everything was planned from A to Z! Superb! I did not need to worry about anything... Transfers to airport, pickup to the lessons... - everything was done! It was the most relaxed holiday I ever had!

"Friendship and Ocean Magic"
I loved how well we all got along in the house! Its a place to relax and find good company. The house itself is so cory and cute! The view from the house was amazing and I liked that the things in town were in such short walking distance (food store, restuarant, Spanish School). I loved the organization, that everything eas organized with pick up/drop of from airport and also for surfing. Thx for the suggestion to take 3days of surfing and then a rest day! Thx Tito for the intro to surfing and thx Fabio for explaining the theory and how to do things around surfing, appriciated the detailed information.

"The best surf camp I've been to"
It was the people I met that made the experience great. Fabio was a great instructor, he gave great instruction and feedback to all the students and was good fun. The house was well equipped and really comfortable and transfers were hassle free. Thanks for everything.

"Amazing experience all round !"
I didn’t know what to expect but can honestly say this was one of my favourite holidays ever! Everything was very well organised from airport pickup to surf classes, the team was very friendly!
Surf lessons were really fun and combined well with the yoga, although a little tiring at times as the sessions were long, but definitely worth it!! Also some free time to relax and explore.
Overall, I met some really amazing people which made the trip all the more memorable :).

"I had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend!"

"You will meet some great people!"
What really made this trip memorable for me was the people I met at Casa Carmen and the other hostels. If you are traveling alone and enjoy meeting other people then I would definitely recommend it. There are lots of social activities taking place outside of the surf such as a Pizza night on Mondays plus there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby as everything (including the supermarket) is within walking distance.

"Amazing 2 weeks with Surf and Spanish at Casa Carme"
Everything is perfectly organized from your airport pick up to surf classes.
I stayed in Casa Carmen which is more laid back, for single travelers who likes to meet new like minded people. The house is a big villa and the atmosphere turned into flatshare right after my arrival. The surf classes are very proffesional, all on soft boards so if you want to surf hard board, don´t think about it. I also recommend to take the spanish course, which was also very professional and we had lots of fun with Sara and Cristo. Finally, overall, I had a great time and met great people.

Great accommodation/location and cleanliness (Casa Carmen)

"I wanna go back!"
Everything was perfect! I wanna surf again and I wanna surf again in Fuerteventura with Spanish and Surf!
Jorge was lovely from day one, he picked us up at the airport at like 10 pm and occasionally came and chatted with us in Casa Carmen. The house is awesome, people are always around and one makes friends easily.
In the morning/afternoon they pick you up, bring you to the beach they chose for the day (depending on the conditions and your abilities) and give you wet suits and boards.
You just have to worry about surfing!
We had two instructors, Mauro and Riccardo and they were both amazing in their own way. They start with a little warm up, explain the theory on the beach and watch/assist as you try it in the water.
Book your surf lessons but also book your accomodation for more days and plan for one or more free days in between because surfing is tiring for most people and I regret not staying longer. I couldn't visit much of the island and I couldn't benefit from the lessons as much as I would have if I had rested.
Muchas gracias por esta experiencia!
La próxima vez voy a venir por más tiempo y voy a seguir las clases de español tambien! xx

Jorge and Luis are doing an excellent job! Easy communication and always reachable if needed. They showed me all the stuff I need to know. Casa Carmen is a nice place to stay with a wonderful view. As I really liked the place, I decided to extend my stay - it was no problem and very fast organized.
The Yoga place was nice (all the courses are in english) - for some lessons precognition is an advantage. Surfing, organized by the home grown surf school, was a pleasure. They always carry you to places where there are waves suitable to your level. There was always a good balance in between theory and practice.
