Great teaching during the surfing lessons, I felt I made a good progress throughout the week. Both Tee and Nathan were really chilled and made us enjoy the waves.
And best of all, the daily trips to the bakery after surfing were definitely something I looked forward to! The cakes and coffee were delicious...

Nathan was excellent and ensured that everybody in the group was safe. He took us to the appropriate beaches, depending on weather and tides so was flexible on time of day.

The beaches were great also, but on day 2 of 3 the conditions didn't allow the waves to be that great. Altogether v pleased with the trip, and would consider going back.

Fantastic! Nathan and Tehillah make the perfect team and read their students well knowing which approach works best for each so everyone really enjoyed themselves and felt they learned a lot. Famous stop off at the bakery on the way home was a welcome treat too! Beautiful, natural beaches...

The surf lessons were good fun, Nathan took us to a few different surf spots around the island, which got progressively more challenging as the week went on, so I feel my surfing has definitely improved, although some muscles are still aching!

How were the surf lessons?

     

The lessons were mostly good, I did not progress as much as I had hoped as somebody that had surfed before I felt the lessons were geared towards the beginners most of the time as they represented the majority.

The surf was pretty good and there was some kind of wave most days.

How were the surf lessons?

     

I had a really good time. I was unlucky to have come down with a head cold right before arriving, so I couldn't try as hard as I'd have liked to on the surfing front - I'm still as much of a beginner as ever -- but I was really happy with the beaches - they're perfect for beginner surfers and I would definitely go back to Corralejo on that basis.

The lessons were very good, professional and laid back at the same time. Nathan and Tee gave advice when and where it was needed without being too intrusive. They seemed to have a good handle on where to go based on the conditions, as we arrived at several spots ahead of other schools.

We were booked in with wave riders. Can't recommend him enough. Extremely helpful, always went the extra mile. Brought some of his own boards for my son to try out. If you are going to Corrales only guy I would recommend.

Our 16 year old son signed up for 5 days of surfing lessons. Nathan collected him and dropped him back at hotel each day. Communication of times were great via text.
We went to watch the surfing one day and it looked great.
Small enough groups so everyone gets involved (about 6 or 7 per group).
Our son thoroughly enjoyed it and sang the praises of both Nathan and Ben.

The surf lessons with Nathan were fantastic. After our first 3 days of lessons we decided to book 5 days more, as the costs of renting the boards and a car out there was no cheaper.

Nathan was immense as a surf teacher and guide and was helpful to us throughout, before and after, we had done 3 days of lessons

Ken

Surf lessons were very good. Nathan is a good teacher, and quiet clued into the best spots to surf. He was a good guy, organised a night out for the group which was a nice touch.

Brian

I found Nathan to be a very good surf instructor and was very clear and was almost a one to one session as the group were kept small.

Sinead & Tammy

Nathan and Tee at the surf school were great, really nice and showed us great stops to eat and drink in. I had lessons from a few different instructures before going on the trip and Nathan was definitely the best instructure I've had to date. Would definitely go back!

Surfing was brilliant the instructor was really really good had an eye on everyone and gave really useful tips we were standing on the boards on the first day and improved with each lesson. Beaches were beautiful, was a great way to explore the island.

Sapphire & Lamorna

The surf lessons were the highlight, Nathan was brilliant - good surf instructor that taught us in so much more detail than we've previously had at other surf schools. He was also really helpful making sure we knew our way around town, where the good tapas bars were (and where to avoid!) and giving us a hand sorting out other stuff to do when we weren't surfing.

Eimear & Dave

Surfing was the highlight, never surfed in warm water before!!! Nathan was such a good teacher and the small groups made all the difference.

Peter & Sharon

Loved the surfing and are now hooked (has to be in warm water though from now on!), favourite beach was El Cotillo and some on the north shore which had a great undeveloped desert island feel.

Judith and Izzy

Nathan at the surf school was great, he showed us around the local area and gave us some really good pointers as to where to eat etc. He also told us about lots of other things we could do on the island . Nothing seemed to be to much trouble for him and he was willing to organize bike hire etc etc. We also really appreciated the fact that we were in small groups for our surf lessons (no more than 6) especially as we noticed most of the other surf schools seemed to be much bigger. All in all my daughter and I had a fabulous time and neither of us wanted to come home.

Carl

Nathan was a class act, an excellent host and a passionate surfer who greeted us everyday with enthusiasm and expert tuition. His level of supervision and tuition are something you really have to see first hand. He's got a realy good handle on the varying levels of proficiency and how quickly the lads were progressing. Superb tuition from someone that knows his stuff and has a passion to pass it on. He's really fired up the boys into a sport that they both want to carry on with and this really was my goal so he's hit the mark there. His local knowledge is invaluable and he gave us some excellent places to go and eat, drink and be merry at.

The surf guys in Fuerteventura were so nice and friendly. We felt safe with them at all times and they also showed us parts of the Island and the island life that no regular tourists will see. We went to different beaches each day and at different times and we met some great people along the way.

Despite being the second largest of the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is still a small island and only takes an hour and a half to drive its length. What this also means is that there is always a coast that is working and plenty of empty waves to be surfed! With practically 365 days of sunshine & 25ºC plus weather it has often been called the Hawaii of Europe.

Like the rest of Europe the Autumn/ Winter gets the biggest surf and the spring/summer is perfect for beginner/intermediate surf...The Canaries lie 100kms off Africa and are a magnet for North Atlantic swells. The island is known for both expert waves and many mellow beachbreaks perfect for intermediate improvers.

Corralejo is often the starting point for a Fuerteventura surf holiday, a perfect base and close to many breaks. The main surf break in town is Rocky Point. Perfect for intermediates, improvers and for long boarders. Further across is Los Lobos island (uninhabited) with a World Class right hand point that runs for up to 400metres.

South of Corralejo is beginners surf beach 'Flag beach', close to the famous Dunes. Further south there are many different beaches that pick up good swell.

The North Shore is what the island is famous for and where you will find a coastline full of just about every wave imaginable. El Hierro is a great spot - with 3 different sections suitable for intermediates to experts ('The Bubble'). On the North West coast is the small village of El Cotillo, and one of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see. It is a very nice intermediate beach break and also be on the look out as it is a nudist beach in parts.
