I surfed for the first time in Tenerife with Umberto. He made the whole experience amazing, being very flexible, helpful in ways that went well beyond the surfing time, and just a memorable and genuine person. Can't recommend it enough!

Umberto is an awesome guy who's gonna help you stand up on a surfboard the first time you're in the water, and show you around the island too. Apart from surfing, I discovered longboarding, and Umberto was kind to lend me one of his surfskates for the time of my stay. We had good fun, I'd totally recommend! J

I and a friend decided to give surfing a go and decided to go with Umberto at Volcano Surfcamp because of the reviews on TripAdvisor. I wasn't sure what to expect but I fully enjoyed it and although it was only a few hours long and my first time, I managed to stand up a few times which felt epic!... More

I came to the surfcamp unexpected and got a very warm welcome from the owner, Umberto. The camp is a very nice apartment close to the beach. The surf lessons are given in small groups and Umberto pays attention to your individual level. Even as an experienced surfer you can learn a lot from Umberto.

Very good tuition with Umberto, was a complete beginner and could ride waves confidently when I left! Good experience as far as the accommodation was concerned too. A great holiday!

The surf lessons are very good and all the equipment you need is provided by Umberto. To improve your surfing skills outside the water you can go skateboarding (longboard) on closed roads.

The surfcamp was an amazing experience where people share the same dream as you - to catch the wave or (for the novice like me) just to stand up on the board. I had only 4 lessons, not enough to learn surfing, but I got the proper feeling of how to do it. The hostel was fun, a nice company,... More
