What it’s like to surf with

Surf Life Tenerife

Every day we set the time of our surf lessons depending on when we can get the best conditions, considering the surfing forecasts and above all, the tide level. If your accommodation is located in the zone of Costa Adeje – specifically in the area from Callao Salvaje to Los Cristianos – we will come and pick you up with our van and take you to our surf school in Playa de Las Américas located 100 meters walking from the beach where we usually surf!

We get changed in the school, where we leave all our valuables in complete safety. We take the equipment and walk to the beach where we will start our lesson with a warm up session. During the technique session at the beach we will give you specific instructions depending on your level, in order to help you improve your posture on the board, the way you stand up and, hopefully, to do turns or advanced maneuvers.

In the water you will be able to practise under the instructions of our team of surf teachers, with over 10 years of experience of surfing and teaching. For beginners, we will stay in the first line of white water, where waves are gentle and easy to catch. For the most experienced, we will go to the line up where we will teach you how to catch green waves – before they break – get the direction and turn on the waves.

After the session in the water, we will be back to the school where you can have a shower and get changed before we take you back to your accommodation.

Even though the surf lesson lasts 2 hours, consider that for the whole experience with us you will need at least 4 hours, from the moment we pick you up until we take you back home!
