Me, my husband and our teenage daughter spent 3 brilliant days learning to surf at Surf School Lanzarote in the October half term in 2016. Right from first contact by email through to the 3 days tuition, they couldn't have been more helpful. We had never surfed before so we were complete beginners. But that didn't matter at all and...

Stayed for 7 days with 5 days coaching. Got some great pointers to work on my surfing. Also was considering moving to a long board but after a few days Jamie had me out on a 6'6". The coaches always have eyes on you to spot and explain improvements to your technique. Met some great people in the group too.... More

One thing becomes apparent very quickly at Surf School Lanzarote, it's a very professional set up catering for all levels of surfing and catering for all wishes from 1 day courses to infinity, however they definitely aim themselves at the person who want to surf for life. Whilst on the beach there are many other schools around but none looked... More

Thanks so much for that really positive review. Summing us up as teaching surfing for people "who want to surf for life " is an excellent appraisal of the way we approach coaching . Even if that surfing for life is just a few days or a few weeks a year. Its great you found coming to our school on... More

Stayed with surf school lanzarote for a week (5 days coaching) and we can honestly say its the best coaching we have had. The instuctors ensure everyone gets coached to their level in order to progress, such as pop ups, turning and turtle rolls.

Just want to say a big thank you to paddy, Vicky and Vincent who were were very accommodating to our needs. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the surf school and then dropped back. The conditions were a bit tough but managed to stand up on day 2. Thanks again guys for all your help.
