We recommend to come for at least two weeks to learn how to surf and to really take in the experience. Surfing is an amazing sport and a lot of your progress comes right down to the amount of time spent in the water and the waves. In some exceptions the surf lessons can be booked on a day to day basis.
Surfari: The Surfari is the perfect option for girls and women who already have some experience in the water and who would like to spend their holiday with like-minded people. We will give you an introduction to the surf spots and assist you with our own experiences in the waves of our location. If you want to you are welcome to use the boards and material of WaveSisters. You can join all other activities besides the surf course.
Yoga: 2 times a week we will offer one hour of yoga. The lesson will give you an introduction to yoga and is especially targeted at surfers. Many pro-surfers and more and more soul surfers realize that yoga and surfing are the perfect team. Pro-surfer Rochelle Ballard said: "I think that the combination of power and flexibility is briliant as well the effect it has on your mind". When we are surfing we use certain muscle groups which we can relax again after surfing during the yoga sessions. Yoga also helps to focus your mind. You will master your fears because you can face them with ease and energy. Yoga combines power, body tension, mobility, flexibility, balance, calmness, peace and a strong mind. Components which we need in the line-up while catching waves. Yoga is included in the WaveSisters camp price.
Lanzarote: Lanzarote is one of seven Canary Islands in the Atlantic Ocean off the African coast. The small but varied island is a wonderful oasis. They say the island has a very intense energy. Maybe the secret lies in the mix of…the vulcanos - not only in the Timanfaya National Park the green, vegetated North the buildings inspired by the island's artist Cesar Manrique and the all-embracing Atlantic which sends its waves towards the coast of Lanzarote.
Caleta de Famara: Located in the northwest of the island where the wind and the waves dictate the days. Famara is the centre of surf culture in Lanzarote. During daytime you will find the surfer girls and boys on their boards in the water, in the ocean. At night they all meet in the bars, restaurants, surfshops and supermarkets to happily talk about their wonderful day of surfing. The village is located at the west end of the 6 km long beach of Famara. The 600 metres high cliff line "El Risco" guards the village to the east - simply breathtaking. Every evening at sunset you will find a unique play of colours surrounding the cliff line. The bay, the cliffs, the island offshore in the north and the majority of landscape around the village form the nature reserve "Archipielago Chinijo". The unique flora and fauna deserve protection - on land as well as in the water. The closest town Teguise can be reached by car in about 15 minutes.
Surfspots and climate: Lanzarote is called the "Hawaii of Europe" and is spoilt with a choice of places to surf. There is something for all levels from total beginners to advanced. You can find more information on Wannasurf or in the Stormriderguide Europe. A good wave forecast for your holiday with us can be found on Magicseaweed.
Seasons: The biggest and most consistent waves can be found in the winter between October and April. In summer you will find smaller waves and warmer water. In late summer you can even surf in shorts and bikini.
Water temperature: The water temperature lies between 24 degrees in August/ September and around 18 degrees in February. A 3/2 mm wetsuit should be perfect for you.
Temperature: The outside temperature averages at about 22 degrees. In midsummer the average lies at 25 degrees, in winter at about 18 degrees. The climate of the island changes now and again. Sometimes suddenly the wind starts to blow from the southeast for a couple of hours or days. This is called "Calima". The winds from the Sahara take out all humidity from the air and bring a lot of heat to Lanzarote.
