Our surf camp for the whole family on Fuerteventura
Learn how to surf or improve your surfing with your entire family
“A surf trip to Fuerteventura for the whole family – that is our idea!”
You are a family and would like to try something new? You want to spend a lot of time together and try something special – get to know a new sport? Then you are absolutely right in our surf camp for families.
The idea behind our Family Surf Camp on Fuerteventura is simple: We want to make it possible for families to learn how to surf together in a surf course, spending time together on vacation having as much fun as possible. Daily stress, work and leisure activities – there often hardly is no time at all in the everyday life for joint activities and consciously time with the entire family. It is often difficult to find common times, due to time-consuming obligations and also due to different interests between the older and younger generation.
Our El Cotillo is a very child- and family-friendly place. In addition to a playground and numerous nice restaurants on the harbor, there is little traffic and parents and their children can have a good rest and can easily relax together on the lagoon beaches. The closest beach from your apartment is 5 min. away by foot. To go shopping or to jump into the pulsing nightlife we recommend the town of Corralejo which is 20 min. away by car. Apart from surfing there is versatile opportunities to experience something else!

Those “secret spots” stand for perfect relaxation and unforgettable experiences for the whole family. Secret spots because you can enjoy the special feature of this landscape only after some time. A panorama which you will help you to focus on the needs of your family.

Surf lessons for the entire family on Fuerteventura
Experience the passion for surfing and lets get you on a board save – while having lots of fun!
Alone on the surf board, but toghther on the beach and in the ocean!
To offer surf lessons for the whole family and to make young and old happy, we have developed surf lessons for families. In our family surf course we combine safety with fun for the whole family at the beachfront of El Cotillo! For children we create a playful atmosphere to learn everything around water and waves.
You are going to learn how to surf step-by-step. Parents can share waves with their children and spend more time together on the beach. Children are cheered on by their parents in their first attempts at learning how to take-off and children are praised for their first rides of their proud parents. All surf courses include comprehensive and professional care by trained surf instructors.
Enjoy surfing with your kids – together
A surf course consists of 5 days (Monday to Friday, 3 hours per day) and includes theory and practice units. You will receive high-quality surf equipment for the whole week. The kids get extra warm wetsuits and practice on soft surfboards that are special made for children to minimize the risk of injury.
In general safety and fun are in the center of our attention. In addition to the relevant preparatory and accompanying theory parts in the surf school, we also provide as much safety as we can on the beach. So we can spend a great time together.
Every day we search for the best conditions to advance your surfing. Equally, however, we would like to experience great things together and have fun. The children should be at least be 8 years old and being able to swim very good.
Great moments to remember
Since we would like to wrap some good memories for you to take home we decided to take pictures of you every day. So you can take your best memories home on paper. We provide those photos on our blog and will send you a link to download them after your stay on Fuerteventura. So can experience your wildest waves and moments at home over and over again.
