At Playa de Fanabe Surf Hostel Tenerife, you will have the possibility to rent a bike for exploring the area. Costa Adeje is one the most famous touristic zone of the south of Tenerife and offers different options for who wants to enjoy the island, from common touristic beaches to less crowded natural paradise hidden in the rural nature, like Playa Diégo Hernandéz, also called Hippie Beach, reachable after a 15 minutes walk around a hill.

 

In the Hostel, you will find an international friendly group of a volunteer living on site and a couple of long-term workers, always ready to solve any kind of situation and to give you the best bits of advice. Antonio, the surf instructor, will come to the Hostel to pick you up with his surf van and take you to the beach or to the harbor of Las Galletas, in order to sail with the boat and go snorkeling with turtles and watching the whales in the wild.

Every surflessons lasts 2 hours and includes:

  • Warming up;
  • Surf technique lesson on board at the beach;
  • A lot of surf in the water with custom training. Depending on your level, we get in the water:

– wearing fins → we stabilise your board and make your standing up easier

– with a board → we follow your waves from the very first moment until the very last!

  • Post-surf stretching session;
  • Lesson debriefing with some last advice to keep on improving;

High-quality teaching

We are the only school in the south of Tenerife where the surf instructors don’t get in the water with a board untill our students can catch waves on their own. For the first times, all the instructors will be always behind the boards, holding the back, in order to stabilize it and taking control of it if necessary.

 

The lessons can be given in English, Spanish and Italian. We are specialized on small groups – never more than 5 students. In case of more than 5 students attending the lesson, another surf instructor will be called.

Time & transfer

We’re gonna fix weekly the time for the surfing depending on the forecasts and on the tide level. We leave from the Hostel with surf van, boards on top and all the equipment in back, heading to Las Americas, where most of the spots for surfing are. Depending on the waves conditions and on how crowded the spots are, we’re going to choose the one that fits best to your level.

Facilities

Depending on the spot that we choose, we will be able to use some facilities at the beach like:

  • Sunbeds;
  • Umbrellas;
  • School container to deposit personal values;
  • Shower;
