The surf and yoga camp is held in Famara, on the north shore of Lanzarote in the Canary Islands. Lanzarote is located 150 kilometres east of the African coast, a 2-to-4-hour flight from the main European cities. No visa is required for members of the European Union as it is part of the Spanish territory. The currency is the Euro.

Lanzarote is the most volcanic of the Canary Islands. Here you will discover a truly unique landscape made of deserts, volcanoes, blue skies, crystal-clear waters and unspoilt coastlines. You will feel the magnetic attraction of the island as soon as you step out of the plane.

The venue
You will stay in Lanzasurf´s Surf House in Famara, facing the beach, with beautiful sea and mountain views, and a minute walk from Famara village. The Surf Houses are fully-equipped and self-catered. It is a fantastic place to socialize with other people on the surf and yoga camp and to make the most of what Famara has to offer.

Food
Fruit, nuts and energy bars.

Our Surf Houses are located around 50 meters from all amenities in the village; bars, restaurants, surf shops and grocery stores. You've got from the typical Spanish tapas to healthy vegan options.

Snack at the beach included.

If you have special dietary requirements it's a good idea to communicate them to the organiser when making a reservation

Program

The surf instructors will be in the water with you pointing out the best waves, helping you catch them, and giving feedback to help you improve your surfing technique. After your surf lesson, they will bring you back to the surf camp.

Surfing with Lanzasurf at Famara Beach
The surf course is taught at Playa de Famara, a 6-kilometres long white sandy beach which receives quality waves year-round. There will be 4 days of courses, a day for a deserved break, and then 5 days. The course takes place from 10.00 to 15.00. The description below shows what a day with Lanzasurf will look like: 

At 10.00 you will be asked to be at Lanzasurf School. We want to make the most of our surfing lessons so, at 10:30, we want to start in the water! 

We guarantee that 4 h 30' per day of theoretical and practical teaching with qualified instructors in turquoise waters will take your surfing to the next level.

The surf lessons are mostly practical but you will also have theoretical exercises where you will get to better understand the waves, the environment and the ocean. 

After the lessons, you might want to enjoy the sunny weather at the beach, visit some tourist places, do yoga or just have some beers. 

During your surfing holiday in Famara, you will be living the chilled surfing lifestyle. The village is full of people from everywhere that are looking for a relaxing place and the best waves. 

You will get to know the local people and enjoy the nice tapas and the best fish that the island can offer you. 

So you can't forget to bring your flip flops and bikini!
