Hello, I'm Christof. I am the founder of OTRO MODO Surfschool. I have two children and live with my family in Morro Jable.
Also for children under 7 years the beach and sea are a great playground. Especially right here small children need constant care and protection.
For many young mothers and fathers, it is not easy to practice sports while and take care of the family at the same time. It is even more difficult for single parents or those travelling alone to go surfing or take part in a surfing course.
That is why we offer young families, mothers and fathers the following opportunities to surf with us:
For an extra charge, we organise childcare on the beach. This way, both parents or the single mother or father can take part in the surf course. We establish contact with our team member or freelancer before arrival and the start of the surf course, so that parents and childcare can get to know each other and exchange information in advance. For childcare during the surf course, we bring a windbreak, parasol and toys to the beach.
The second option - booking a surf course place and sharing it - is great for parents with babies.
Both parents take part in our safety instructions, theory lessons and practice exercises on land. In the water the parents change. Therefore surfing is possible for both parents and the children are always cared for by their mother or father.
Requirement for that is private rental car, which can be rented on Fuerteventura up from 15€ per day.
A rental car offers further advantages. The sun in the Canary Islands is very intense year round.
On many beaches there are no shady places, restaurants or toilets. Due to the presence of the surf course group we are teaching, we can not leave the beach at any time. Umbrellas can help, but do not stop sunlight and heat permanently. With the rental car you can adapt to the needs of the children and leave the beach earlier. If the remaining parent want to continue surfing, we always guarantee you a free place in our surf school's car.
