Our Surfing courses on Fuerteventura

We operate a mobile surf school; this means we drive our surf students to the beach that is offering the best surfing conditions on a given day. As waves in the Canary Islands depend on the swell direction, size, wind and many other factors and since here in Fuerteventura North we have more than 10 different surfing beaches we can always take you to a perfect beginner/intermediate surf spot. What’s more you can choose the course duration that suits your holiday plans.
