Historically an A1 fave with Brits escaping our isles’ dank and dreary months, Lanzo has become a tad unfashionable of late… Which is great, as it means fewer crowds!
It is an awesome spot, with a good variety of waves. And with ever more heavy-duty spots being surfed over the years, the crowds around the traditional hot-spot, La Santa, are a bit mellower. As a Brits-abroad winter classic, Lanzo is one of the easiest surf-retreats to get to: there are plenty of flights; cheap accommodation, and there are some great surf schools for beginners and intermediates.
Surf School Lanzarote
Surf School Lanzarote offers the most advanced beginner and intermediate coaching in Europe. ISA and BSA level 4 qualified instructors all of whom are pro lifeguards, and can provide excellent private accommodation in the small fishing village of Famara. Warm water and consistent surf make this a great place to improve your surfing, head off on your first surf trip, or get into riding bigger waves.
