Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, is the largest city in the Canarian Islands and also known as one of the best surf Cities in Spain. Las Palmas Surf Camp & Surf School is located on the promenade with amazing sea views surrounded by more than 30 surf spots easily accessible in a 20 minute radius!
The island offers a tropical climate, with beautiful landscapes. Las Palmas, one of Spain's major tourism destinations, is a multicultural place with many nationalities living together and full of life all year long. This means that there is less seasonality and even during the winter seaason, best for surfers, there is still much to do. In fact, one of the Island's high seasons happens between December and April.
The Las Palmas Surf Camp & Surf School is located at Playa de Las Canteras which is the surfing center of Las Palmas! The entire beach Playa de Las Canteras is bordered by an attractive promenade where everything happens!
There is a great variety of activities and events that take place along this beach throughout the year. Among those, there are sport competitions, dive trips, open air events and concerts every Saturday from 5 pm. No doubt a perfect place to combine surfing and partying!
The pleasant mild climate all year round allows an active life style that takes place outside. At the beach Playa de Las Canteras you'll see a lot of people jogging, playing football and beach tennis, volleyball, kids building sand castles and tourists sunbathing.
Surf Camp Las Palmas & Surf School is located just on the promenade with amazing ocean view. The surf camp offers a cozy atmosphere, full of life and modern surf decoration.
It has a wide living room where you can spend time, relax playing guitar (or listening others play it), listen to music, etc., together with other guests. Would you like to come with a group of friends and stay altogether at the beach? Do you like meeting people? Then this is the place!
The surf house has different accommodation types in shared, double or twin rooms, with living room, shared bathroom and fully equipped kitchen. You can get together to eat as the kitchen is fully equipped with cutlery, fridge and so on. This way you will get to have a nice time and share experiences while lunch or dinner is getting ready, and later tasting it along with nice spanish wine, beers or some local Arehucas rum shots while you comment about the surfing session of the day.
Surf Camp Las Palmas & Surf School is set at Las Canteras Beach close to city centre so you can easily move around the city. Nearby you may find all kinds of bars, restaurants, pubs, nightclubs, shops, supermarkets, ice cream stores and everything you need. Also the old town Vegueta and the area known as Triana are about 4 kilometres away from the Surf House, though you can get there by bus or by bike. Museums, interesting places to visit and an authentic canarian town are waiting for you.
In Las Palmas you will find an authentic surf city with different beaches and more than 30 surfable waves. There are waves for all levels beach breaks, reef breaks, point breaks, tubes, mellow or long waves.
Its privileged location is flanked by 4 coasts because of the peninsula La Isleta, Las Palmas is exposed to swells from 270º. Therefore, the surf spots abound in the city and there is always a wave breaking somewhere.
You will find any kind of wave that you are looking for! However best swell season runs especially in autumn and winter. Those are the most steady seasons with the best winds for surfing. Between October and January there is a great climate with an average temperature of 23ºC. In the Canary Islands the weather is warm all year round. The average temperature is 23C and during winter the temperature does not go down under 18C.
Basically Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is the perfect place of retreat for anyone who wants to get great surf and escape from the cold.
Our surf school has different programs for different surf levels. We always try to work in little groups of 6 students per teacher giving attention to all students. Surf lessons include warm-up and stretching, understanding the components of the surfboard and the right positioning, how and when to stand up, posture while surfing, posture of the head and the arms and legs but also important stuff such as the knowledge about rips and current, safety etc. If you're already in the know than we skip this part and take you to advanced surf lessons to improve your skills.
For advanced surfers we recommend the surfari packages which include guiding through the main surf spots.
