Surfing in Tenerife

It is well known that Tenerife is a sports island. Everything is possible here, as well as flying sports, sailing, swimming, Crossfit, golf, cycling, running, wind/kite surfing and we could go on and on!

Although golf surfing is something many people cannot do at home. Because of this, it is a great idea for tourists to book a surf lesson through Club Canary.

Surfing for beginners in Las Americas

For beginners, it is really necessary to book a lesson before you start surfing. Not only will the surf instructor explain the basics of surfing but also give you information about the surf culture in Tenerife and the dangers/benefits of the local surf spots.

What do you do during a 1st surf lesson

During the 1st surf lesson you will be taught basic surfing stance, and paddle techniques. In addition, some theory will take place where explanations will be given about the surf spot and certain techniques.

In the water you will be mainly busy learning to find the right timing and recognize the appropriate waves to surf.

Franz surf school in Tenerife

Club Canary collaborates with top surf school “Franz surf school” in the heart of Playa de la Américas. The surf school is known for its friendly staff that speaks many languages besides English and for its relaxing surf atmosphere.

Surfing gear included

Surf conditions / time to choose

Surfing is hugely dependent on the weather conditions. We don’t want participants to be in danger, or simply unable to surf due to too few waves. To ensure that your booked Tenerife surfing lesson can go ahead, please follow the following 2 tips:

  1. Book your surf lesson early in your vacation. If the day is not convenient Franz Surf School will contact you to reschedule.
  2. When you make your booking choose the option “when the conditions are best” we will then depending on the weather conditions choose the best surfing time for you.

Meet other surfers

In the surf school or during lessons you can expect to meet other nice people of all ages with a passion for surfing and therefore always have a sociable experience.

Book extra surf lessons

Normally a 1 surf lesson is a perfect way to get an impression about the sport. If you would like to do more, you can choose to rent equipment at the Tenerife surf school. You can also choose to book an advanced lesson at Franz surf school, you do not need to contact Club Canary about this.
