Where to learn surfing in Tenerife? Are there English-speaking schools in the Canaries? How much is it? How to start? The answers to these and many other questions related to surfing in Tenerife you will find in this article. So, let's go.

What is surfing: 

Surfing is a kind of extreme water sport based on sliding on a special board (surf) on a wave. There are many variations of surfing in the world: longboard (sliding on a long board), shortboard (sliding on a short board), sapsurfing (standing on a board with a paddle), bodysurfing (lying on belly on a short board) and many others. The active development of technologies will allow adding new names to this list in the near future. Mainly sea and ocean waves are suitable for surfing, although rivers, lakes and pools with artificial waves are also not excluded. Hawaiians were the first to practice riding on water on waves, as part of a ritual. Today surfing occupies one of the first positions in popularity among extreme sports.
