Come Surfing at Surf Canaries!
Surf Canaries is an official surf school in the south of Gran Canaria.
With the headquarters and classroom at the foot of the famous sand dunes of Maspalomas, we offer high quality surf classes – from a one day experience for beginners to intermediate/advanced classed.
As we are a mobile surf school, we can choose every day the best beach for learning depending on the conditions – great waves, fun and safe tuition at non-touristy, uncrowded beaches all around the island!
Join us now and learn to surf with us in perfect weather, perfect waves and with highly experienced, fun and qualified instructors!
Our Surf School and Surf Shop are situated at the foot of the famous sand dunes of Maspalomas.
Our Surf Apartments are just a 1 minute walk from the Surf Center, overlooking the sand dunes and, more importantly, the waves...
We are based in the south of Gran Canaria where we live the dream of an endless summer with year-round waves. We were set up in 2007 and quickly developed into a popular surf school due to our fame for offering really high quality surf courses with a real personal feel and attention to detail.
In 2008, we changed our name from “Surf Experience“ to “Surf Canaries“ and we are one of the few surf school on the island to be working with the major tour operators.
The secret to our success is a culture of really concerning ourselves with the well-being of each client. We strive to ensure that each one has a fantastic experience in and out of the water, either as a one day surf experience or a week long surf course.
Out of this, we can share this islands beauty and fantastic waves whilst giving everyone the chance to experience what it is to catch a wave...
Our permanent team of highly trained, enthusiastic instructors are what sets our Surf School apart from the others.
It is our strict safety protocol and well tried and tested teaching methods, combined with a real good sense of fun that keeps our school highly recommended.
The pick up from the hotel is usually between 09:00-09:30 in the morning (depending on surf conditions) where we then meet up in the surf school and have the introductions + surf videos.
Then, if there are no waves on our beach we head off on our Surf Bus “journey“ to wherever we will be surfing on that day.
