Star Surf House

  • Stay:  together with the other guests, who come from all over the world, you will have a week full of surfing, activities, fun and good food. Because besides surfing, there is still plenty to do on the island. Everything is always organized from the surf house, but it is also very easy to go on an adventure yourself.

  • Fuerteventura: the Canary Islands are known for their infinite springs and Fuerteventura is certainly no exception. This island is also ideally suited for surfing, with surf spots for surfers at all levels. Read more about our visit to Fuerteventura .

Surfing, activities, meals and transport

Below you can read more about surfing, activities, meals and transportation. Scroll through the photos alongside below for an impression.

Surf lessons

  • Surf Package:  you choose between 3 or 5 surfing sessions (in total a surfing session takes around 3 hours). You will go to different surfing beaches (depending on the circumstances and your level), where you will receive lessons from certified surf instructors. Surfing materials are included during the lessons and course the transfer to the surfing beach is included. If you take the upgrade to 5 surf lessons, the surf material will be available to you throughout the week (otherwise you have to rent this).
  • Free surf:  if you take 3 surfing lessons (the standard package) you can rent surf equipment outside of the lessons at the surf shop or Star Surf (€ 15 per day). The surf school offers transfers for surfing lessons and beyond that you are free to go to a beach to surf yourself, or arrange a transfer to one of the surf spots on the island.

 

Surf conditions

  • Beginners: novice surfers we highly recommend the surf package of 5 lessons. Certainly in the beginning surfing is a rather difficult sport to learn, which requires good training.
  • Intermediate: intermediate surfers we recommend the course or 3 lessons, but you will also learn a lot with the upgrade. The lessons are given at all levels.
  • Advanced:  this group can also learn enough during the lessons. In addition to teaching, the instructors will also take you to the best pots on the island.
  • There are different types of breaks around the island , from beach breaks to reef breaks (where there are also a number of point breaks).

Activities

  • Yoga: Star Surf has its own yoga school, a stone’s throw from the surf house. So make use of this and book the extra yoga classes.
  • Volcano Island: set off  on your own and, for example, climb the volcano at Lajares. You can do this on foot or rent a mountain bike. Every week a number of guests from the surf house go that way.
  • Discover: the island has a lot to offer, so go on an adventure. You can do this yourself (by car) or ask the Star crew for help.
  • Relax: of  course you certainly have the opportunity to fully relax and relax. For example, in front of one of the flat screens in the surf house or at the swimming pool.

Meals

  • Food: 3 dinners a week are included, which are consumed in different restaurants. It also happens regularly that a barbecue is organized on the roof of a hotel, close to the surf house. You also have the option to cook for yourself, but there are also plenty of nice restaurants in El Cotillo, where you can enjoy lunch or dinner. There are also plenty of options for breakfast, including a supermarket.
  • Dietary requirements: if you have certain dietary requirements, this can certainly be taken into account.
  • Cooking facilities: there is a kitchen in the surf house that you can use.

Transport

  • Bus: from the airport you can take a local bus (bus 3) to Puerto del Rosario, from there you take bus 6 to Corralejo and then bus 8 to El Cotillo.
  • Transfer: there is a shuttle service possible from the airport, you have to reserve this yourself. A return ticket costs around € 14. You can also take a taxi, this costs around € 55 to € 60.
  • Rental car:  you can also rent a car, parking at the surf house is no problem. We recommend this because it is very nice to discover more places on the island.

Yes, it certainly is. On this surf holiday, many people come alone or as a couple, so the atmosphere is very open. By far most are looking to meet new people and socialise.

Surf

On this page you can find information about the surfing conditions, where we have defined the conditions per level. This information can be found under the tab ' Surfing, activities, meals and transport '.

Surf lessons usually take place in the morning and there is also often a group in the water during the afternoon. However, it depends in particular on the surfing conditions, so this is never easy to determine beforehand.
