Learn to surf with OTRO MODO

Hello, I am Christof, I founded the OTRO MODO Surfcamp in 2007. "OTRO MODO” is Spanish and means “the different way”. OTRO MODO this is us, this is our way to live. OTRO MODO is more than a name it's our philosophy!

Hi, I am Tine, I organize the surf camp's office since 2010.
Every one of us has different motivations to live this different lifestyle. But one thing we all have in common: The love for the ocean. The elemental force, dimension, mystic and eternity of the ocean inspires people to dream and to go beyond their limits at all times.

Hello, I am Alex, I am surf instructor and head coach at OTRO MODO since 2013.
The ocean has always inspired people. Old stories and legends, the eternal power and beauty and the infinite blue. The ocean seems to be one of the few things that are endless, mysterious and unpredictable. Things we need to dream and o grow beyond ourselves.

From all the water sports none is more elemental, pure and bonded closer to the energy of the ocean than surfing. We from OTRO MODO made our decision. This is our life. The Ocean is our life. We are:

We are not a big travel company, we are people who follow their passion. We want to share our passion with you.

We want you, regardless of your age, your surfing experience and skill, to enjoy surfing and learning surfing as much as possible and all this with maximum safety!

How do we achieve those aims?
Our surf lessons are based on years of experience and the modern teaching methods of the British Surfing Association (BSA). Our courses are designed by sport scientists. We are also constantly monitoring the quality of the lessons to make them better.

Every day we choose the surf beach based on your surfing skills. Only optimal wave and wind conditions according to your level of surfing lets you make huge advances in learning to surf. Thanks to our daily surf spot guiding you get to know more about Fuerteventura and it's people.

To coach every student individually and according to their needs and desires, our surf coaches are always in the water with our surf students, equal if they are beginner, intermediate or advanced surfers.

We've got a big range of new and modern surfing equipment (Billabong wetsuits, NSP and Surftech surfboards, etc.), to be able to give every surfer the surf equipment which fits best to their skills.

All our surf coaches are certified by the International Surfing Association (ISA). They are also qualified lifeguards certified with the Surf Life Saving Association (SLSA). Every Coach has a minimum of 2 years experience in teaching surfing.

Our coaches are highly motivated, for every one of them surfing is more than just a sport it is a life spirit! That means more than riding a wave, it is the fun of discovering new places, adventure, meeting a lot of people and having friends around the globe. We want you to become a part of it!

What are our strengths?
Apart from the beginner's course, our surfschool is specialised in intermediate and advanced surf lessons and surf guiding. The advanced lessons - often neglected from other surfschools - are our strengths!

You want to stand up on a surfboard but have never surfed before?
Our surf courses are based on sensible structured learning steps which build on each other and guaranty a comfortable and safe start to surfing.

We also insist on a small surf coach to surf student ratio (max. 1:6). Only in small groups can our surf coaches train each surf student individually.

You already had some surf lessons and have surfed your first white water waves but want more?
You are already surfing green waves but don't have enough drive for your first turns?
You have only got one week of holiday and you want to surf as much as possible, but you don't know where to go?

Then we recommend for you our intermediate or advanced surf courses! We only use surf coaches that are certified for advanced lessons (min. BSA Level 2 Instructor). They also have at least 3 years experience specifically in teaching advanced surfers.
From reaching the lineup to your first cutback they will guide you in theory and practice.

Is that all?
No!
Videocoaching. Almost every surf school offers it, but just a few are really doing it. Our surf lesson includes, depending on your package, at least one detailed video coaching. Whether you are a complete beginner or a professional surfer, with movement correction in slow motion it makes every surfers surfing improve, a lot, in a minimum amount of time.

Our surf courses also include interesting und technical theory lessons. From understanding currents and learning to negotiate them, tides, wind, wave development and surf technique, to surfboard design and the history of surfing.
At least once a week we give extra theorie lessons in our office in Morro Jable about tides, winds, currents, origination of waves, sustainability, beach and enviroment protection.

We are constantly checking the quality of our surf lessons, for example with our feedback sheets. We want your opinion after your surf lessons, so that we can become better and so that you can have the best possible fun in your surf holidays.

New: Radio helmet coaching! The radio helmet coaching will be like a live video coaching, were a surf instructor can coach you while you are actually up and riding. A great way to improve your surfing skills and learn complex maneuvers in a short time!

All surf courses contain: surf equipment (Billabong wetsuits, NSP and Surftech surfboards, etc.), theory and practical instruction, videocoaching, transfer to the most suitable surf spot, free pick up service from your accommodation and insurance.
