You will stay in a surf house chosen by Zoopark Famara Surf, SUP & Kitesurf School Lanzarote.

This kitesurf camp does not have a set start date, it is open from Monday to Sunday so you could land on the camp any day of the month and start your kite course the next day without any problem if the wind conditions are appropriate. You will go to the beach to learn and have fun. In addition to starting to navigate in kitesurfing, it is not necessary to have a special physical condition nor a certain age, nor is it necessary to have previously practiced other water sports or gliding.

The school is an official IKO center and the teachers are accredited IKO level 2, also ZooPark Famara Surf, SUP & Kitesurf School is qualified by the Royal Spanish Sailing Federation (Kiteboarding Area). The classes are taught in Spanish and English.

If the wind conditions were not favorable during your stay in Lanzarote and you don't want to do other activities (surf, SUP, windsurfing, diving, or hiking), ZooPark Famara Surf, SUP & Kitesurf School is committed to the total repayment of the amount paid for the hours of kite contracted that you couldn't do, simply paying the amount of accommodation in the camp or apartment.

Before you decide which kitesurfing camp is right for you according to your level, please check the list of IKO levels and objectives to ensure that you reserve the kitesurfing program that best suits your level, knowledge, and experience. If you are not sure of your level of kitesurfing, do not worry because the teachers on the first day will evaluate your level on the beach and you will receive your classes according to it.

IKO level 1: beginners

You will learn everything related to:

  • Safety and prevention
  • Choice of spot and material suitable for any atmospheric condition
  • Assembly and dismantling of the equipment
  • Theory and practice of flight techniques and control of the kite
  • Kite landing and take-off
  • Relaunch in the water (as take off the kite when you are in the water)
  • Body-drag and body-drag upwind
  • Water start

IKO level 2: intermediate

The kitesurf camp intermediate level 2 is addressed to you who have already taken classes before but for some reason, you have not completed the course in its entirety or for you who need to strengthen your knowledge in the body drag or in the water start (sailing with the kite) onwards. This course is for you who at least already know the whole theory of flight and safety, have done all the ground exercises, have total control of the kite hooked to the harness, and know to re-launch the kite from the water (IKO level 1).

This camp is also addressed to all of you who have completed an entire course and have done body drag and water start exercises but for some reason, you just did not go surfing (IKO level 2). In the lessons of this camp for intermediate level aspects, such as movements of the kite are covered to create a constant traction to each side of the wind window, the position of your body in the water at the start, sailing, the position of your feet on the board, and techniques of tiling. The mission of this camp is that once you finish your instruction with the instructor, you can navigate comfortably and start to return to the site, always depending on your learning curve.

IKO level 3: advanced

This advanced level is suitable for all of you who have completed IKO level 2 or have the equivalent knowledge, you have your own equipment or practice kitesurfing in a more or less regular way. If when you go to navigate notes you can't control the power of the kite well, too much power / speed that you fall frequently enough to have advanced a few meters, if you are still not able to return to the starting point and drift more than that, or if for some reason you are not satisfied with the control you have of the situation once you are surfing, this is the camp with the lessons and knowledge that you are looking for.

The lessons of this camp are covered such important aspects as the techniques to svelte and return to the site, positioning of the body with respect to the board and the kite, acceleration, and deceleration by means of the center, changes of direction fluids, and even theory as well as practice your first controlled jumps and first maneuvers like back loops and front Loops. All of this is one of the safest and least practicing spots in Europe.

This course is only for those of you who have completed the steps of IKO level 2 or even IKO level 3 but you need to take your kitesurfing further under the instruction and guidance of experienced instructors.

This kitesurf 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.

    Lovely experience

    PROS Pros: The camp provided me with more than I had hoped. The accomodation was very lovely with plenty of room to yourself and places to relax. I received one on one kitesurfing coaching that got me from a complete beginner to being able to stand up and ride. On days the wind wasn't good enough for the kitesurfing, they offered me plenty of replacement lessons such as surfing.The atmosphere was lovely and I felt very welcome into the community. Thank you

    Worst kite instruction ever

    CONS Cons: Kite instructors all on holidays. Maybe customers should be told that in advance of paying all the money and flying there, only to find that only the owner of the business is available. While he is a nice guy, and likes to show off how well he can kitesurf, he is the worst instructor I have ever experienced. His 'teaching' technique is to make you stand around for the better part of the lesson while you watch him perform. Then to be told how bad you are, but never be given any opportunity to actually practice or try anything. I am still a beginner but have been kiting for some time and have had many lessons and instructors. Each kite and location is obviously different. I am still getting my technique to improve which is why I went there. Kiting is like learning to drive a car - just because you stall the clutch few times doesn't mean you can't drive. You have to be allowed to adjust things and keep practicing to get it right. Not at this school - I had to just stand around. Not even upwind bodydrag allowed. Also, school apparently only allowed to use small, completely different geographical area of the beach which has totally different wind conditions. So while all the kiters get to enjoy proper conditions in the lovely bay, the students of the school get to deal with ridiculous conditions of either no wind, or total hectic wind and the instructors not wanting to put up their kites as its too dangerous. All in all, the worst experience and complete waste of money and time.

    PROS Pros: Nice friendly staff and decent accomodation
