Surf Canaries School

Canaries Surf School is located on the Playa del Inglès in the south of Gran Canaria, along the sand dunes of Maspalomas. A spot known for its endless summer with year-round waves.

Created in 2007, they quickly developed into a popular surf school thanks to the quality of their surf classes with a real personal attention to detail.

The secret of their success is the focus they put in the well-being of each participant. They strive to make sure each one has a fantastic experience in and out of the water, either during a one day surf experience or a week long surf course.

Amazing instructors although it would have been even better with more instructors or smaller groups (I was in a group of 7 on 1 instructor) because it's such a difficult sport

Awesome experience!

Our instructors were lovely guys, eager to teach us as much as possible in a short time. What we enjoyed very much was how our instructors spent all the time with us in the water, making sure we would learn how to catch the wave and give us constant feedback on what was well done and what had to be improved technically. They also separated the beginners from more experienced ones, so there would be at least two instructors and two groups respectively, so our level of surfing would be catered for properly.
