You do what you can on a table

It was in 2012 when I had my first romance with the sport of surf. On that occasion it was just a hurried and shy kiss that occurred in the beautiful Cantabrian landscapes of Somo and Loredo. Like that love of youth whose memory is all passion and tenderness, the imprint he left on me made me think that we would meet again sooner rather than later. And that was how, just a few days ago, I returned home after a great week of action on the magnificent beach of Caleta de Famara, in Lanzarote.

We received an invitation from the surf school that is the reference of the area: Calima Surf. Founded in 1996, Calima Surf boasts of having the best teachers on the island and offers complete surf courses, differentiated into three levels, in addition to kitesurfing, windsurfing, diving and hiking through the magnificent landscapes of the volcanic island of Lanzarote.

In order to fully enjoy the surf experience, we decided to stay in the house that they have available for those who choose to taste the life of the surfcamp. For the same price of the course, Calima gives you the option of living in a big brother house, a few meters from Famara beach, where you can share every day with people who have come to the same as you.

I will tell you about our experiences at home in another article, although I tell you that the decision was very correct.

The beautiful beach of Famara

We arrived to Caleta de Famara in the early hours of Saturday to Sunday and we dedicate the Sunday rest to tour the western part of this island that, at times, makes you believe that you are drilling a lunar landscape without the need for scuba diving.

Monday morning began our surf days.

The house wakes you up when the first big surfing brothers gather in the common kitchen for breakfast. The faces of sleep quickly gave way to those of excitement among the beginners who started the course that sunny morning.

A few minutes before 10 in the morning we arrived walking to the garage where the boys and girls have the offices and the material Calima Surf. Less than five minutes later we were riding in the van, with the wetsuit on and what were going to be our mounts for the rest of the week following us in the trailer.

In a minute we reached the beautiful Famara beach.

It is an unbeatable place for your surf baptism or even for more experienced people. One of the largest sandy beaches on the island -6 kilometers long-, framed between the small fishing village and surfers of Caleta de Famara and some majestic cliffs, the rocks of the Chache, which include the highest point of the island of 670 meters of altitude.
