Nothing but Surfing – do you want to surf as much as possible and make progress quickly?
Come to the small village of San Felipe, famous for its inexpensive seafood restaurants. The surf camp is next to the sea. With sea noise and sea views from the roof terrace, you will find the real surfer life: relaxed and chilly.
The surf camp is located 20 minutes northwest of Las Palmas, the capital of Gran Canaria. San Felipe offers bus connections to the north of the island, as well as to Las Palmas. Far from the tourist hustle and bustle, the coast in the north of Gran Canaria invites you to learn to surf and discover the area. A rental car is best suited for this purpose (attention: minimum age of 21 years).
The small former fishing village of San Felipe is at the north coast, full of waves and is surrounded by banana plantations. Far away from the noise of the city, it is best to relax during a walk to the nearby sea pool, or eat dinner in one of the 4 restaurants. For those who want to work on their beach body after the surf day: there are also two outdoor gyms, one is only a 5 minutes walk from the camp on the beach promenade.
