Just a 20-minute drive from Tenerife’s South airport, you find Playa de las Americas. This is the Canary Islands’ center for sliding sports. Good weather and consistent swells throughout the year make this beach with golden sands perfect for surfers of all levels.
It is here where our 2-hour surf lesson takes place. At our school, you begin to master the waves and the surfing language from the very first moment. Your expert instructor focuses all of his attention on making the learning process as simple as possible. You can count on accurate advice in the exact moment you need it, not to mention a big and encouraging smile at all times.
The activity starts with your instructor picking you up at the arranged time and place. All you need to bring are the clothes you would usually wear on the beach, plus a towel and flipflops, of course. Our school provides all the necessary equipment, such as the surfboard, leash, and, if you’d like, even a wetsuit.
Ready? The lesson starts with a 30-minute warm-up session and a theoretical explanation. You learn about surfing techniques and practice a little bit on the shore. After that, you get in the blue sea of Tenefire to try surfing for real for the next hour. In this stage, your instructor helps you stabilize the board to make the standing-up action happen in the safest possible way.
Once the water session ends, you have a post-surf stretching session and a lesson debriefing. Your instructor gives you some last bits of advice so you can continue improving your surfing skills going forward.
Our lesson is open for kids as young as five years, as well as for people of an older age. As long as you can keep your balance in the water, it is never too late to start surfing.
It doesn’t matter how young or old you are. Once you catch your first “green wave,” that's it, the addictive nature of surfing will have you hooked forever!
