Our two boys (aged 10 and 12) were part of the surfing course for 6 days and they absolutely loved it. All the teachers were very nice- our kids always returned with their faces glowing with pride with their every days' accomplishments. Also the teachers were very cautious to keep them safe, but also made sure they had lots of... More

"What are we going to do for holiday?" That was the main question this summer. We decided we wanted to surf and yoga and after an internet search found the website of FreshSurf. The website itself is very clear and clean - there is a large german part; but also an English part with all the information needed to make... More

When reading the reviews on tripadvisor, I was perplexed as I have had the complete polar opposite experience using this company. I visited the shop originally to hire a suit/board for myself and additional suit for my wife. When entering the shop we were met with silence. Staff were glued to their social media accounts and stared blankly at us.... More

During my two weeks in El Cotillo, we've stayed at the surf house. The housing is amazing, great roof terrace, even better breakfast and amazing dinner, which is homemade and varies from evening to evening. It was my first Surf course ever, and I felt very well with the instructors. They are all very detailed and motivating, the ratio of... More

The FreshSurf Surf Camp is perfect for a short escape from your dull routine of everyday life!

The FreshSurf in the relaxed village of El Cotillo in the northern part of fuerteventura is a very good choice if u want to have reliable gear, german organisation and high professional staff. We paid 150 EUR for a 3 days intermediate course, unfortunately there was just one session a day for approx. 1-2h just surf with teachers. Im used... More
