The Surf camp

Surf Camp Tenerife offers an all-inclusive surf vacation in a luxury surf villa with swimming pool, located near Playa de Las Americas, in south Tenerife.

Tenerife is the largest island of the Canary Islands. Commonly known as the Hawaii of Europe, the Canary Islands is located 100 km off the Moroccan coast, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, where the swell is big all year around. The Canaries are known for its year round warm temperatures and guaranteed sun. With warm waters and beautiful, diverse landscapes, it is the perfect place to learn how to surf.

The surf camp's countryside location, between banana plantations and with amazing views of the seas and the island of la Gomera, means that its one of the best places to relax and view sunsets after a whole day of surfing. At the same time it is only a 10 min drive to Playa de Las Americas, where the majority of tourism and nightlife is concentrated on the island. So when you're all surfed out, there's plenty more to see and do. From the new water park Siam Park close by (which has a brand new artificial wave pool) to snorkeling, boat trips, long-skating, quad biking and much more.

A short drive away there are plenty of restaurants, bars and clubs from every corner of the world and it is the perfect place to meet new people and to do some bar hopping. You can also drive into the mountains where you'll find some genuine Spanish culture as well as some mouth watering Canarian food.

Tenerife has all kinds of different surf spots from perfect left and right reef breaks, beach breaks and fast hollow left and right handers. It is a perfect place for beginners to learn how to surf as well as for intermediate and advanced surfers to push their level.

The Climate is sub tropic which means that in winter the air temperature seldom reaches below 20 degrees C, in summer it is even hotter.

Surf school

The surf school usually holds classes at the beautiful beach break El Medano or the reef breaks of Playa de las Americas. These beaches have soft waves which helps beginners take their first steps in standing up and riding waves whilst having fun at the same time.

With dedicated and experienced instructors who are also qualified lifeguards and speak various languages, you will learn to surf in a safe and fun environment. Each instructor will teach a maximum of 6 students at the same time ensuring that you receive the full attention you need to develop your surfing skills.

The following is included for students attending the surf school:

  • Pick up/ drop off at the airport (TFS)
  • Accommodation at the surf camp
  • 4h surf classes (2 hours 2 times/day if and when the conditions or the tides are ok), 6 days per week
  • All surf equipment needed
  • Video recording of lessons, with analysis afterwards at the camp
  • Breakfast

If you have arranged your own accommodation, you can also book surf school only. This includes 4 hours of surf lessons and all equipment needed.


Surfari is a great option for more experienced surfers. Every day there is a different swell, a different wind etc. This doesn't matter if you book a surfari with us. Every day you will be transported to the best wave of the day, no matter where about that is on the island.

You will be accompanied by professional local surf guides. They will tell you all about the spots, how to get in and out, the currents, type of wave, etc. They will also give you feedback on how to improve your surfing skills.
