Non-binding request

Hello I am Tine. I have two children and live with my family in Morro Jable. I organize the surf school's office. I am happy to answer your questions and send you a non-binding offer.

our kids surf course

Hello, I am Derek. I am responsible for the surf lessons for children and teenagers at OTRO MODO.
Surfing is a great sport for children. Beach and waves are an exciting playground, which also does not bore us adult surfers.

We offer surf courses for children (up from 7 years) year round. During the school holidays, we regularly organize surf courses only for children and teenagers.

For the surf course we pick up our students from their accommodation. For children we have booster seats in our car.

For surfing you don't need much equipment, only wetsuit and surfboard. Their use is simple and does not require long explanation.
For small children we have special wetsuits with long legs and arms. These provide better protection from the sun and keep warm longer. Also we have small surfboards with a soft foam surface to prevent possible injuries.

We go every day to the beach, which offers the best conditions for surfing for children. These are beaches with soft sand, less current and small waves.

Children learn sport playfully by constantly trying. Therefore we skip a part of our theory lessons but explain all necessary safety rules for the usw of surfboard in short and simple steps. This also includes exercises on land for the take off on the surfboard.
Than everybody is off to the water with the surf instructor. He helps choosing waves, pushes the children into the waves and gives tips and feedback.
Also children who are under 11 years of age are accompanied by a surf instructor assistant, who helps the children carry their boards and with wave selection.

Our surf course for young families

  • Two people share a place in the surf course and pay only one surf course
  • Parents can take turns taking care of the child

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.

Because of that we offer young families the opportunity to book a surf course and share it.
That means:
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 euros 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.

This surf course offers a very good price-performance-ratio and is booked by many young families.
