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. 8 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.

I started surfing in Ireland at an age of 18 a bit late but learning to surf in Ireland you have to learn quickly, as you can imagine!
In the years between then and now I have surfed and sailed (sailing is my second passion) in a few places around the world. Bringing sailing and surfing together has given me great knowledge of how the ocean can harness a humbling amount of energy. As Beach Manager and Surf Instructor I can use that knowledge and experience to pass on to all who arrive in Lanzasurf.
In all the schools I have worked for over the years I settled with Lanzasurf in 2015, as it has a great ethos for this outlet of knowledge of waves, sea and passion of teaching surfing.
Lanzarote waves and weather are the only way to surf passion!!

When I was a kid, I have seen a movie Endless summer and wanted to try surfing since then. At that time was not as easy to travel to places with waves like it´s now.
But I always loved the water, so I started training swimming and I continued on competition level for 13 years. Later I changed to train white water kayaking slalom, for 4 years on competition level as well.
In 2005 I finally had a chance to go to Lanzarote with my friends and did my first surf lesson. I loved it so much, that I continued every year.I wanted to live doing something somewhere that I can surf every day, so in 2015 I got my ISA Surf Instructor Level 1 licence and Lifeguard licence and start getting experience being instructor. I moved to Lanzarote, where we have the best beach for teaching all levels of surfers, called Famara. Since then I enjoy helping first-time surfers to have the best experience getting to know this beautiful sport and I love it.
I love my life in board shorts and flip flops in Famara!

Gabby Huertas grew up in a happy family of 5 in the South of Spain although originally they were from the Vasque Country. She always loved sports but especially the ones in the sea and that’s why at the age of 10, after sailing for several years she started windsurfing. She early started training hard, learning that sacrifice, discipline and constant can make your dreams come true. After retiring from competition she focuses on her professional career, finding years later the perfect balance of the life she loves in Lanzarote where she can combine her love for the sea, the laid-back lifestyle and the surfing that has become the main pillar of her life.

All my life I have had loved and practiced sport. In 2006 I achieved a diploma as a personal trainer from the Italian Fitness Federation, and started my professional career started as a choreographic fitness instructor. Later I was drawn towards the philosophy of Yoga, which led me to resume studying, practicing, and eventually becoming certified as a Vinyasa and Aerial Yoga instructor, in Thailand!
Since 2012 I have owned a gym in Italy, where I put into practice all the knowledge and experience I have acquired during my career. A new professional challenge brings me today to Lanzarote where, thanks to Lanzasurf, I can share my passion and my expertise with an international audience!
Take care of your body and your mind!
