Surfers Island are a great kitesurfing school in Sotavento South of Fuerte. We asked their instructors for help with bar / kite trimming and they were great explaining how to do it. Since we’re beginner kiters we also asked them often for advice on wind strength, kite sizes on the day and tides and they were always super helpful sharing their expertise. Tim and other instructors are super friendly and very efficient, you can see students making quick progress every session, they get loads of training time and improve very fast. They use top equipment and it’s chosen according to weather conditions, size of student and their level. They change their session times according to best conditions such as wind and the lagoon so their students get the most of each session rather than having fixed session times like sick schools. We deeply regret that we didn’t know about them at the beginning of our stay in Fuerte, we picked a kiting course in Corralejo which was a waste of money and time and we hardly learned anything. If you’re in Sotavento area and want to learn or advance your kitesurfing sign up with them!

As a dinghy sailor I decided to take the cat sailing beginners course and it was fantastic. My instructor Marius was knowledgable informative and good company, important if you’re spending hours on 4m square trampoline. I can’t praise the whole team enough for their all around helpfulness. Well worth the effort, and the money.

My older teens took a 2 day kite surfing lesson. They probably needed 3 days to really get it but they had fun and the guide helped my oldest overcome her fear which was amazing. My 13 and 14 year old had an hour refresher sailing lesson on our last morning. They had a great guide that was very personable. They had a great time and they were able to learn new techniques.

Just finished an excellent 3 day Catamaran basic licence course at Surfers Island. 5 hours of expert tuition from Lenny, who was very patient and encouraging with this complete novice of a sailor. Lenny had me in the driving seat and sailing from the start of my very first session and things never looked back from there as he taught me the various skills and took me through the various safety drills -man overboard and capsize righting etc. Lenny’s English was excellent and I was able to quickly work through the theory session with him. Not only have I had a great holiday but I have a new skill and that’s all thanks to Lenny and the team at Surfers Island, particularly Tim as well, who worked hard to fit me into their schedules on consecutive days. I’ll be back for kite-surfing very soon!
