The Surf camp

Surf camp Fuerteventura is located in Corralejo, once a small fishing village, nowadays a famous surfing resort, located on the northern tip of Fuerteventura, the second biggest island of the Canary islands.

The Canary Islands, commonly known as the 'Hawaii of Europe' are located 100 km off the Moroccan coast, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, where the swell is big all year around.

Fuerteventura and the area around Corralejo in particular, offer great conditions for surfing all year round and is suitable for all levels of surfers. The winter (Nov-Mar) is the best time for experienced surfers with Northern swells coming across the Atlantic. The summer (April- Oct) brings smaller but consistent waves perfect for beginners and intermediate surfers.

There are 5 beach breaks the surf camp visit on a regular basis and plenty more reef breaks for the advanced surfer all within a 20-30 minute drive from the town.

The area has excellent weather during the whole year with a dry desert climate usually caressed by winds that keeps the temperature at a comfortable level. In winter the air temperature seldom reaches below 20 degrees C and in summer it is even hotter. Since it is a desert climate, rain is also minimal.

Surf school

The surf school is completely mobile meaning that lessons are held at the most suitable surf spot in the area, depending on daily weather conditions.

Depending on your level of surfing, the surf instructors will guide you and help you to improve your surfing skills.
