Lanzasurf is owned and managed by Evandro Muñoz. It was originally founded in 2006 as a Surf Sports Club, the “Club Deportivo de Surf La Salta”. In 2012 it was reactivated and turned into a surf school, but kept its initial philosophy: to share our experience and our passion for surfing and make it possible for all, from beginner to advanced surfers, to enjoy exhilarating surfing moments with us.
Safety and teaching quality are very important to us: our surf instructors have a wealth of experience, are qualified by national and international surfing associations and are trained lifesavers. Lanzasurf is an Official Surf School of the Canary Islands Surf Association.
The material we use is high-quality and adapted to each student’s level and the tuitions are provided to reduced-size groups (max. 6 students per instructor) so we can provide you tailored advice in and outside of the water.
We believe surfing is all about sharing: we will put our heart into offering you an unforgettable surfing experience and making you feel comfortable and part of our family.
