This was the first time we have done a surf course and we really enjoyed it. We learnt more in 3 days than we have surfing on our own in the last 3 years. Thanks to Vince, Vicky, Jamie and Bert for their quality instruction and unrivaled enthusiasm.

I could not recommend Surf School Lanzarote more. I was a complete beginner and after 4 days I was able to stand and also makes little turns. Moreover, I had a great time and this is mostly due to the instructors. They are super professional, friendly, encouraging and enthusiastic about what they do. I initially booked 3 days and I...

great team, quality instruction, good organisation. only 4 stars because the teams are too big and you don't get enough one-on-one time, but i think all schools do that. maybe a good idea to ask how many people signed up for the lesson and go for a less busy classes if you can.
