The surf instructors will evaluate you, guide you, and correct everything you need so that you can evolve your surf quickly.
This surf camp will take place in Caleta de Famara, Spain. Caleta de Famara has passed in recent years from being a quiet fishing village to become the epicenter of surfing and a must visit place for all surfers and kiters who come to Lanzarote.
The main reason is its wide, easily accessible beach which is 6 kilometers long and the largest on the island, open to the Atlantic Ocean with guaranteed waves all year round where different surf spots are suitable for all levels, with waves on sandy bottom which is perfect for beginners and rock bottom waves like San Juan. In spring / summer, the trade winds encourage the kiters to enjoy long sessions with the great quality of constant winds. In autumn / winter, the wind conditions may be a little less constant but the beach orientation also ensures a good number of winds to navigate without problems.
The second reason why Famara is well-known as a destination for thousands of water sports enthusiasts is the beauty of its surroundings. Nestled in the heart of the natural park of the Chinijo Archipelago, Famara offers a unique landscape that is not easily forgotten, being its risk that rises more than 600 meters above sea level, and its geographical situation right in front of the Island of La Graciosa, the two great signs of identity. The good weather of the Canary Islands that you can enjoy all year round and the appearance of the low-cost airlines that allow you to access Lanzarote from many airports in Spain and Europe for very little money, indeed make Famara an ideal destination for tourism activity adventurers and lovers who look for good waves and winds.
For many years, Famara has been a small and quiet town that lived off the fishing activity. Over the years, many have realized that the great potential of Famara was not in the depths of its seas but on its surface and that the real "Blue Gold" of Famara was not its fish but its waves, its wind, and its pristine beaches. Little by little, the town has transformed, going from being a fishing village to a village of surfers. As a result, the surf and kite become the main motor of development of the town.
In the present time, Famara is a town that lives by and for water sports (surf, kite, and SUP). Known as "caleta", every year it receives thousands of surfers from all over Europe, where you will only see happy surfers or people practicing long skate through the quiet streets of the town. Also in recent years, Famara has also become a spot for a fashionable new sport, the SUP, or known as paddle surf. Famara pier, which is protected from the waves, is the perfect place to practice SUP and more people are encouraged to try it. For the most daring SUPers, there are also several waves in the zone which are perfect for this type of modality.
If you are the surfer, kitesurfer, or stand up paddle boarder, and you are looking for a place with a free spirit, an incredible natural environment, good weather all year, waves insured, or the best winds, do not hesitate, Famara is the best choice.
The special status of environmental protection enjoyed by the Caleta de Famara as part of the natural park of the Chinijo Archipelago makes Famara a place which is totally protected from any urbanistic speculation or massive tourist development.
As a curiosity, in 2009, Pedro Almodovar came to Famara with all his equipment to shoot several scenes of his film "Los Abrazos Rotos". Since then, word of mouth has made Famara the place that many famous and well-known faces choose in search of privacy and rest that they cannot find elsewhere. José Saramago (Nobel Prize for Literature in 1998) left his native Portugal to settle in Lanzarote in 1995. According to him, told in his memoirs after his first visit to the island, he was so enthralled with the bragging of the Risco de Famara and its reddish sunsets at that moment that it would be the place in the world to live the rest of his life.
