7. Kids & family surf course at Fuerteventura's endless beaches
Sandy beaches and gentle waves are a great playground for children and for adults. Our surf instructors are always amazed at how quickly and naturally children learn to surf. Experiencing the children's enthusiasm for surfing is almost as exciting for us adults as surfing ourselves. Therefore, we offer surf lessons especially for children and families. We have a team of German-, English-, French- and Spanish-speaking surf coaches, who are aware of the special needs and desires of children under the age of 12. In small groups of maximum 4 children per instructor, our instructors will help to carry surfboards, choose waves, gentle push the surfboard into the wave and give individual support and feedback. According to the needs of children, we only teach at beach with soft sandy ground, less current and gentle waves. Once at the beach, our surf instructors explain the surf equipment, waves, currents and important safety rules. After a short theoretical instruction, practical exercises on land follow. In simple steps, our instructor will show the position on the surfboard and the movement how to stand up - we call this the "Take Off". Now everybody is off to the water. The course takes place only in shallow water. The surf instructor will be in the water with the children and help choose waves, give the surfboard a little push into the waves and provide tips on how to improve the surfing technique. For a small extra charge of 8€ we will pick up from your accommodation in: Morro Jable, Jandia, Esquinzo, Butihondo, Costa Calma, La Pared or La Lajita.
