Why we choose Lajares on Fuerteventura as the location for our surf camp

The idyllic town of Lajares is also called "Surfcity", among other things, because the infrastructure is adapted to surfers' needs. In addition, most of the beaches and coasts are equally close, so that you can reach the best surf spots at short notice, depending on the wave conditions. Of course, this saves an enormous amount of time when checking out the spot.

Every surfer or, correspondingly, every surf school has to pass through the
town of Lajares at least once a day in order to take advantage of the variability
of the coasts. Depending on the wind and waves, this is necessary in order to be

able to to reach the coastal regions in the north, the east or the west - only in this

way can individual attention can be paid to all levels of ability of the surf students.

The choice of our surf camp base is therefore systematic and we were able to
choose one of the few surf camps here in Lajares in the north of Fuerteventura.
