Flight booking questions

What is the best way to get to Fuerteventura and which airlines fly to Fuerteventura?

Is it possible to book flights directly through you?

No, unfortunately, no flight can be booked directly with us. However, we are happy to provide information about good Internet travel agencies or other booking portals where you can make cheap flight reservations.

Which airlines fly to Fuerteventura?

You can fly to Fuerteventura with various airlines, such as Lufhansa, Condor, TuiFly, Iberia, Ryan Air, LTU, Easy Jet or Spain Air. Edelweiss also flies from Switzerland. Another possibility is the flight to Lanzarote – from there you can take the ferry to Fuerteventura in 35 minutes.

Where is the best place to book flights to Fuerteventura?

It is worth looking out for special offers early on. Condor regularly offers “one-day flights”. It is also worth checking major air travel portals, such as www.flug.de; www.skyscanner.de; www.flug.idealo.de or www.ltur.de etc., as they compare prices and suggest the cheapest one for you. It is also always good to be flexible with your travel date, as there are often different expensive/cheap flights on different days of the week. The cheapest flights are often those that leave very early, for example at 6am.

How far in advance should I look for flights to Fuerteventura?

Since all airlines offer different price ranges per plane, the earlier the cheaper the flight, because the cheapest seats are the ones that are sold first. Last minute offers are rare. In addition, there are also always cheap offers and promotions, for example, “one-day flights” at Condor or Canaries offers from TuiFly.

Can I take my surfboard with me to Fuerteventura?

Of course, you only have to register your board(s) separately as sports luggage with the respective airline. For the transfer from the airport to El Cotillo you need a rental car or a cab, which park directly on site – the shuttle can unfortunately not take surfboards.

At which time of the year or in which month are there cheap flights to Fuerteventura?

The cheapest flights are usually available in the off-season, for example outside school vacations. Tip: Are there school vacations in your state at the time of travel and the flight is expensive? Book the flight from an airport in a federal state where there are no school vacations at the time of travel. With the “Rail und Fly” ticket you can get to the airport cheaply.

Own material, BoardRental, Which material do we lend, etc.?

You are welcome to bring and use your own equipment. Otherwise our Boardrental starts from 15 Euro per 24 h.

What kind of surfboards can you rent? Longboards, funboards, fish boards?

In addition to beginner boards, we also have longboards, funboards, hybrids and shortboards in our program. Accordingly, you can rent boards according to your taste. If, contrary to expectations, we don’t have it, there are several stores in the vicinity where we will certainly find the right board for you. More about the rental can be found here

What wetsuits are available with you?

We have wetsuits available in every size, whether for men, women or children.

Can I book private coaching or individual lessons with you?

Of course you can also be taught privately by us. We can focus on your strengths and weaknesses – building on the strengths and mitigating the weaknesses.

Can you be sure that you will learn to surf at FreshSurf?

Unfortunately, there is no learning guarantee in surfing in general. Surfing is one of the most difficult sports, which addresses little-used muscle groups and the balance feeling – some stand at the first wave (especially children), for others it may take a little longer. However, what we guarantee you is, besides a lot of motivation to get you on the board, the best possible training by licensed surf instructors, optimal equipment and suitable wind and wave conditions.

Where do your surf lessons take place in Fuerteventura?

All surf courses, whether beginner, intermediate or advanced, take place on the beaches and reefs of Fuerteventura. For all surf courses we look for the best possible wave and wind conditions for each day and then decide which spot we will go to. Accordingly, we go every day to the surf spot that is best suited for the surf level of our guests. For the beginners we always start at one of the beautiful beach breaks of Fuerteventura, preferably our house beach in El Cotillo, so that you can start in waist-high water on a sandy bottom safely and in a great beach atmosphere.

Does the surf course take place at a beach break or at a reef break?

It all depends on the surfing level. For safety reasons, our beginner courses take place exclusively on beach breaks. Intermediate and advanced courses are held on beach or reef breaks, depending on the conditions.

What should I bring to the surf course?

Beach stuff: Swimsuit, swimsuit / bikini for under the wetsuit, towel, sunscreen (at least SPF 30), water, a small snack and especially a lot of good humor.

How long does the surf course last?

The surf course lasts about 3.5 hours, including theory, practice time and transfer.

What language do you teach in your surf course?

The surf course is held in German and in English – if you want to work on your Spanish, you can of course ask the coaches for Spanish instructions 😉 We currently have a German surf instructor, all other coaches speak English and Spanish. Furthermore some speak french and italian.

Is the spot transfer included in the price? Is the shuttle to the beach included during the surf course?

All transfers to the surf beach are included in the price.

I have already taken a beginner surf course, what does the advanced surf course include?

We offer different advanced surfing courses:  Intermediate Course as well as Advanced Intermediate Course and Private Coaching for the advanced surfers.

The intermediate course is for surfers who have already completed a beginner surf course and now want to learn how to surf green waves. This course usually takes place on the beach, where some more work is done on the stand-up and paddling technique in white water.

The advanced surf course is for surfers who already surf green waves and want to optimize their techniques and work on their timing and positioning in the water. This course usually takes place on the reef.

Our advanced course is for already good surfers who would like to optimize individual movements (e.g. timing, positioning, certain turns, rail-to-rail surfing, etc.) and receive individual feedback.

Since we only teach in small course supervision (1:5) and can therefore respond individually to our surf students, we discuss – in addition to our surf course program – after the first surfing with our advanced surf students, what they are already good at and what they would like to learn next. This way, each advanced surfer has their own individual lesson plan.

A detailed description of the different surf course levels can be found on our website under surf courses.

When is the best time for a beginner surf course?

Since we go daily to the surf beach that has the best conditions for the surf level of our surf students, every season on Fuerteventura is especially good for starting surfing / surfing.

When is the best time for an advanced surf course?

Since we go daily to the surf beach that has the best conditions for the surf level of our surf students, every season in Fuerteventura is suitable for an advanced surf course. If you have been surfing for a while and want to learn to surf at the reef break (stone reef) during your advanced surf course, the best time is from October to April.

When are the best waves in Fuerteventura?

In principle, there are always good waves on Fuerteventura – that is the advantage of an island. If the swell comes from the north runs the north shore, if it comes from the east the east coast, and so on. There are different spots for each season, which have the best waves. If you want to surf the reefs of Fuerteventura, the best time is from October to April. In summer it is generally a bit smaller.

From what age are children allowed to participate in your surf course?

We teach children from 8 years old. In order to teach children safely, the surf lessons must be prepared much more carefully and more staff is also needed, so we do not give a discount for children.

Is it possible to use the surf equipment outside the surf course hours?

On the day of your surf course you can rent the equipment for free (if available) and go surfing again on your own.

Is it possible to go surfing in El Cotillo or other surf spots on days without a surf course?

Of course, you can rent a surfboard and a wetsuit from our office.

How much does the rental of surf equipment cost and do I have to bring a deposit?

If you are no longer with us in the surf course, the rental of board and suit costs individually 10€ per day and together 15€ per day. Please do not forget to bring us a deposit (ID, driver’s license, etc.), which we will of course return when you return the equipment.

When do the surf courses start?

With your surf course you can start every day. We offer surf lessons every day.

Do I have to take all surf course days in one piece or can I also take a day break?

Of course, you can spread out your surf course days as you wish. Usually we schedule you on consecutive days for the courses – according to the number of course days you have booked. If you would like a different distribution, just let us know and we will be happy to arrange it for you.

Is it possible to spontaneously book additional surf lessons on site?

Of course you can also decide for (more) surf course days on site, if there are still free places in the surf course. Just let us know in time (at least 24h before), usually we still have space for you.

Can I cancel surf course days booked in advance on site?

Already booked and paid surf course days can unfortunately not be canceled on site. If you can not participate in the course on a booked day, we can not refund this course. However, if you let us know the day before, we can try to accommodate you on another day – but we can’t guarantee that.

Do you rent roofracks for transporting surfboards on the roof?

Yes, if you rent a board from us, we can lend you roofracks for a fee of 2€ per day, which can hold up to 6 boards. So you can also transport larger boards comfortably by car.

Do you use environmentally friendly wax?

As ocean fanatics, the environment is very important to us, so we have waxed our boards with GreenFix. This is environmentally friendly wax and consists of 100% natural ingredients. By the way, when renting you get a piece for free.

Can I change/exchange a rented surfboard for another one?

Of course! You can exchange your board for another one at any time. If the conditions change or you realize that the board is just not for you, just check back with us.

What do I do if something breaks on the board and I have a "thing" in the board?

Shit happens, especially when surfing: How quickly a fin breaks off or it finds a small thing on the surfboard. For this we have the shaper of our confidence in the neighboring town of Lajares sit. He repairs the dings in our boards cleanly and to fair conditions. If there is any damage to your rented board, we charge his costs directly to you – without any surcharge. To be sure that you won’t be charged for any damage caused by the previous renter, we will check the board together with you before handing it out – so you can be sure that you will get an intact board.

Where does the horseback riding take place? Are there rides on the beach / sea?
