We went twice to Lanzarote especially for the surfing. We learned soo much from Roberto, Simone and Corado. It is also an advantage that you are usualy in a small group so you learn faster. You can drive in the Defender Jeep to Famara beach with them, so you dont need your own transport. I hope we go back!!!
