We spent this Christmas in Tenerife and our 8-year old son wanted to try surfing. He is an excellent swimmer and really enjoys the sea, so we looked around and chatted to several of the surf schools about the different types of lessons and what the best for our boy would be. Finally we booked a private lesson for him... More

It was my first time surfing and I had a great time! Instructors are nice and helpful and classes weren't too crowded. There are only two things I wasn't extremely satisfied about. Firstly, there are too many surfers in the same part of the beach (but it might be because of governmental regualtions that forbid to surf in other areas... More

Absolutely fantastic service and surfing instructions / lessons. Ask for Paeo for lessons he was patient, informative and very positive. Great place to learn how to surf or enjoy if you are more experience. Very good surf shop with everything you would want to buy.

I had a great time with 'Peyo', a surf teacher at K16! He helped me a lot to stand up on the board, and once you ride a wave you just can't stop surfing... I recommend this surf school by heart, practicing in small groups and big fun! Thanks Peyo for pushing me so many times into the waves the... More

Well placed, very friendly and cheerful instructors. It is better to take lessons in the morning while are no so many people in the ocean.

It's hard, really hard at least if the sea is "in active mode". My first experience was full of pain and seawater in my mouth (a lot of paddling in the middle of the storm). Second lesson was also hard but I really enjoyed these both lessons. I recommend this for all active people. It's not easy but great fun... More
