CALIMA SURF headquarters are located in Lanzarote, the most northern of the Canary Islands, 100 km off the Moroccan coast, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.
According to the "StormRider-Guide 98", this is the "Hawaii of Europe" with its mystical and volcanic landscape and countless surf spots, from "world class reef breaks" to deserted beach breaks for beginners.
The surf school and camp is based in la Caleta, Famara, a small fishing village, surrounded by the "Parque Natural de Famara" (natural reserve), where hotels were never allowed to be built.
Away from mass tourism, surrounded by the marvellous 700 mts high "Risco de Famara", we teach on the 6km long beach break of "Playa de Famara".
The conditions here could not be more ideal to enable beginners to enjoy this fantastic sport!

The NIGHTLIFE in Lanzarote offers you various possibilities. Sure you can have a meal and chill out with a beer after a gruelling surf session in the villages, but why not head into town to party. Here's a quick rundown of what's on offer:
FAMARA: Stay in the village and work your way through the tapas bars, restaurants and surf style beach parties.
Don't miss every Friday live music at "La Bartola" and a night out at LAGOMAR... you will not forget it...
For good snacks, tapas and fast food try HAMBURGUESARIA FAMARA... with it's internationally renown "FAMARA BURGER" ,o))))
PUERTO del CARMEN: A short drive across the island (30 min. approx.) takes you to Lanzarote's answer to Las Vegas which is one long strip of busy bars and clubs mainly frequented by tourists:-)
ARRECIFE: If you fancy sampling the local culture then head to the capital of Lanzarote and party with the locals. Live Spanish music and relaxed atmosphere. If you time it right you may get to experience a Carnaval when the whole island stops to party!
If all else fails just do it on the beach!
- Mountain Biking
- Fishing trips
- Rock´n Roll
- and much more...
Don't forget your longboard skate & guitar
