DISCOVER OUR CLASSES .

When you book with Hotzone Private Surf in Fuerteventura, your group will have a maximum ratio of 3 people per qualified surf instructor along with an assistant surf instructor to ensure the highest quality of tuition and safety levels along with the authentic feeling and personal attention of a private coaching session.

Over the years this model has been proven to offer the best dynamic and it is also cool to share your stoke with fellow surfers and meet like-minded people that may become your friends and surf buddies for life.

Your private coaching surf session will be tailored exactly to your needs, your ability level and your personal ambitions. All lessons have been carefully designed and are continually developed to provide you with the right information and support to ensure fun, safety and a high personal surf progression curve.

At Hotzone Private Surf we focus on the ability to read and understand the ocean better. This method teaches you how to catch more waves and can even double to quadruple the amount of waves you would catch when compared with traditional surf school classes.

Using this method helps you to spend more time on the board and in turn creates much better board control. These techniques will stay with you for the rest of your life as a surfer.

Put simply – more waves, more fun, more experience!

BEGINNER SURF LESSONS .

When you come to learn the basics of surfing with Hotzone Private Surf we will ensure you get the best introduction to the sport possible matching your desires to the most appropriate conditions available that day. During our search together for the right waves, or before we start the lesson, we will have a brief talk about your history with other sports and your connection with the ocean. After this induction process we begin the lesson with information about the chosen surf spot at which you will get your first feeling of gliding with the waves. We will give you a brief introduction to the equipment we will use and the board we have selected for you. At this point we warm up together and you will learn the difference between being caught by the waves and properly catching the waves.

Once you can catch a wave by yourself we move on to the next step. Depending on how your timing is and the way you behave in the water, we will either leave out or add certain steps to get the very most out of your session. This will raise your ability level and water confidence as much as possible whilst having lots of fun along the way. We will end the session with an exchange of feedback from the day.

After all these years of teaching it still gives me the greatest of pleasures to water the seed of surfing and then follow how this seed grows into a fully developed and confident surfer. In some cases clients have even become competent surf teachers themselves and have opened surf schools around the world and help spread the passion.

INTERMEDIATE LESSONS .

If you already have some experience in the water you can book the intermediate surf lesson. Whether you want us to fine tune your pop-up technique or improve your skills in the line-up we can help. Whilst looking for the surf spot that best suits your skill set, we will talk you through the local spots we pass and you can tell us which things you would specifically like to work on that day. Although surfing is booming we will do our very best to find you the less crowded spots. Mostly we will work on catching more waves and longer rides which naturally helps make you a better surfer. Of course, if you would like to work on more radical turns, floaters, 360’s etc. we can be of assistance with pleasure – regardless if you ride a shortboard or a longboard.

You can choose from a wide selection of surfboards – 5’4” to 9’6”. Whether you have one week or 10 years experience, it always gives us joy to provide you with the exact information and tips needed to help you improve further – this ensures you get the very most out of your surf trip and you can take this knowledge with you back to your home spot or your next surf destination.

PROFESSIONAL LESSONS .

As a former competition surfer myself, I can prepare you on how to cope with stress whilst competing and learn to improve your scores. Nutrition, fitness and mindset will be structured for more confidence during competitions.

LONGBOARD LESSONS .

Longboard surfing is a synonym for good vibes, a loose attitude and relaxed wave riding. As progressive old school longboarders we can show you the ropes. From catching more waves to nose rides, cross steps, reverse take offs and 180 shuvits. You tell us what you would like to work on and we will help to get you there.

BIG WAVE SURF LESSONS.

The main focus here will be to feel comfortable in big waves. With various programs you will become more confident with big conditions. Physical schemes in big wave surfing involve breath training. This helps to improve lung capacity, cardiovascular health, aids in keeping calm through wipeouts. Yoga training helps the body make efficient use of oxygen as well. We work on the breathing, mindset and strategies that will help you survive in big conditions.

PRIVATE SURF LESSONS FOR FAMILIES.

One of the best things in life is to share your passion with your family. We make sure you and your family have an experience that will leave great memories to look back on for life. Hotzone Private Surf is here to tailor your surf session to exactly your own and your family’s wishes. Our teaching model and high instructor ratio inherently caters for mixed abilities and mixed levels of fitness being together in the water at the same time. We can arrange a nanny if required and we will be happy to provide you with whatever other assistance you may need to make your surf memories and experiences rewarding ones.
