Although we create a fun and enjoyable environment, CostaNoroeste Lanzarote Surf Camp is focused on safety. We center our safety mission around the following elements:
1. Participant Review/Individualised Program
We ask that all participants have solid swimming skills before coming to Costa N-Oeste Surf School, as surfing require some swimming experience. Our program will place participants with an instructor who specializes in teaching at that student's particular skill level.
Our surf school in Famara is sponsored by brands such as NSP, BIC, RIP CURL Gath helmets. Our surf equipment is renewed every season, so you will always use the best and newest equipment durig your learning with us.
We provide top-of-the-line surfboards, bodyboards and wetsuits for all participants. We have everything from soft surfboards for beginners to high-performance longboards and shortboards for more experienced surfers. We are a Rip Curl wetsuit Pro center so you'll use the latest material of this leading brand. But feel free to bring your own equipment!
Whether you have never surfed before or whether you just want to improve your skills, our certified surf instructors (FES/ISA) will enable you to reach your goals. Our surf instructors will work with you in small groups (max. 8 students/1 Instructor), teaching beginner to advanced surfing fundamentals, which include water safety, surfing techniques, surf etiquette, proper equipment and wave selection. They will evaluate each student individually and create the groups accordingly.
Beginners learn all about safety and basic surfing techniques before entering the water as well about waves, currents, winds and tides. We will give you a safe and pleasurable beginning to the ultimate sport of surfing.
Intermediate and advanced are separated into another group and taught new techniques and manoeuvres, not having to go through all the beginner theory and practical exercises. It will all about catching green waves and improving and perfecting your surfing style!
Our Surf classes for all levels are held on the beautiful beach of Caleta de Famara on the northwest coast of Lanzarote (natural park and Reserve of the Biosphere). English and Spanish spoken.
You can join our surf school in Famara any day of the week and for any number of days. Surf school closes only Sundays, 25/Dec and 1/Jan.
