Program

Kitesurfing with Red Star Surf
Red Star Surfs teaching methods are based on the successful educational approach of IKO - International Kitesurfing Organization. They will help you to define real goals in kitesurfing and to achieve them step by step. The speed of the learning process during the lesson will depend on your experience, fitness level, determination, and persistence.

You don't need any background knowledge at all to start learning how to kitesurf. The aim of the course is to help you to get to the level where you can kitesurf on your own. Without any pressure step by step, you will learn everything you need to achieve it. 

All people are different, but we are absolutely sure that everyone can learn to kitesurf. You will acquire basic knowledge about kitesurfing security and weather conditions, first on the beach and then in the water.

Experienced kiters can also rent their high-quality equipment and go kiting assisted by one of the instructors. They also organize kite trips to different spots in Lanzarote and the neighbouring islands. If you are not a beginner in kitesurfing and want to brush up your knowledge, moving to the next level, the advanced kite course is just for you.

Yoga with Red Star Surf
Professional surfers like Kelly Slater, Stephanie Gilmor, and Cory Lopez practice yoga to improve their performance in the water and to stay flexible and relaxed during competitions.

Yoga and surfing are the perfect combinations for every surfer. Surfing and yoga both make you flexible and strong and open your eyes to the beauty around you, as both put you in excellent harmony with your surroundings. The yoga classes meet the physical needs of surfers at all levels and will support your learning experience to the maximum.

The evening yoga sessions focus on relaxing asanas (physical exercises) to regenerate the body after a day of surfing. A mixture of stretches and relaxing exercises help your blood circulate through the body more freely, so you can enjoy the next days' surf session without feeling sore or physically tired.

Balance exercises ease your body into inner peace, strength, and stability. You will also greatly improve your balance when you are riding the waves. A couple of breathing and relaxation exercises at the end of the yoga class will relax your body and mind. This can also show you how to calm down in the ocean, which is the perfect metaphor for life.

According to the ancient yogic text, the Yogasutra of Patanjali, yoga means The waves of thoughts come to rest in the spirit The same will happen to you while you are in the waves of the ocean.


Optional activities
Mountain biking
Lanzarote is a true paradise for lovers of cycling. Many tracks pass through the station in Famara. Either cruising along the coastline, to the neighbouring island La Graciosa or to the volcanoes. No matter which route you choose, you will always be touring, while being accompanied by stunning sceneries of this island!

Red Star Surf bike centre offers you a choice of high-quality mountain bikes, beach cruisers and helmets. The mountain bikes have an aluminium frame with special wheels or contact pedals that can be equipped when required. They don't rent out cycling footwear due to hygienic reasons.

Spanish school
Learning Spanish in Spain is without a doubt the fastest and most effective way of getting to know the language. Studying a language abroad allows us to put our new knowledge into practice every day, which accelerates language assimilation. Learning a new language will always be much more effective if it is combined with cultural immersion. Red Star Surf Spanish School offers you the opportunity of studying Spanish in one of the Atlantic Oceans' most beautiful islands

Red Star Surf Language Academy is located about 100 meters from the beautiful Famara beach and several surf spots. The Academy is fully equipped with everything needed for quality learning: a comfortable environment, modern equipment, free Wi-Fi, a small library and above all, impressive views of the cliff. In Red Star Surf Language Academy, all the teachers are experienced and trained as foreign language teachers.

Surfing
The surf school is located in Caleta de Famara, Lanzarote, just in the middle of the Natural Reserve Parque Natural del Archipelago Chinijo, protected by UNESCO. A unique place in Europe with warm and pleasant weather surrounded by the endless ocean which provides us waves all year round.

They offer individual and group sessions with up to 8 students per instructor/lifeguard. Their attitude to surfing is making everything possible. They will always find the appropriate approach for each student - you will love surfing! Surfing is not just a sport, it is a culture. They offer you to get acquainted with the culture of surfing in informal conditions together with our crew. Open all year round and every day!

Surfing lessons for children
Children over 6 years of age, who can already swim can take part in the surf lessons. Children and adults will benefit in many ways from each other and can learn together better and faster. Without any stress or pressure, the kids are introduced to their first steps in the water. The surfing students get used to the ocean and the waves, then they learn to glide on the water and then come to the surfing.

Classes are always held in a secure waist depth area where you can stand and always close to the instructor. The class usually lasts for 4-5 hours which includes lunch and a short break. Red Star Surf also offers private coaching for all levels. Famara beach is one of the best places in Europe to learn to surf with great waves, with nice weather most of the year and an experienced Red Star Surf team to guide you all the way.

Surfari
If you are an experienced surfer, you can try the surfari option. Come with Red Star Surf to the best or most uncrowded reefs, points and beach breaks, which can offer Hawaiian style powerful waves most of the year.

Food

Red Star Surf doesn't offer meals. You will be able to cook your own meal in the surf house or eat out. All surf houses in Famara have a fully equipped kitchen, which you can share with other guests. The small local supermarkets provide a good selection of international and local products.

For dinner, Red Star Surf still recommends going out. Most of the local restaurants and bars are good, inexpensive and provide international menus. Famara offers a choice between cheap and quick Canarian local fast food to fine cuisine. Ask the friendly team for recommendations.

Exclusions
Meals are not included in the package offered.

Location

Red Star Surf will get you far away from mass tourism into a small quiet fishing village, called Famara Beach, located on the north coast of Lanzarote (Canary Islands, Spain). You will be surrounded by waves, mountains, and pristine landscapes. The whole north of Lanzarote is a nature reserve protected by UNESCO. Lanzarote and the neighbouring islands are provided with waves from all directions because of the volcanic formation and the favourable geographical location. This allows for the best surfing in all weather conditions.

Life in Famara is all about surfing and kite surfing. You will find people everywhere walking up and down the streets carrying surfboards under their arms, wearing wetsuits, walking bare feet or just skating with a longboard. The beach, Playa Famara, is just a few minutes' walk from any part of the village. Famara is truly a surfers paradise. You have the choice of a lot of surf spots just by walking a couple of minutes. There are beginner beach breaks, reef breaks, point breaks, and a couple of tow-in big wave spots.
