A surf camp is a place for surfing with other "like-minded" surfers.
The term surf camp does not necessarily mean accommodation in a camp - tent. Much more is about the coming together of people with the same interests, ie the community with other surfers.
The first surfcamps were created in the 40s of the 20th century. The surfing was still in its infancy and only a few "crazy" of this time devoted their lives completely to surfing.
The Nirvana of the surfers was then - just like today - Hawaii. With year round warm temperatures, warm waters and breathtaking waves, Hawaii was and is the ultimate surfing destination. The most famous surfing area is the north coast of Oahu. On this wild north coast of Oahu, the first surfers, who had devoted their lives completely to surfing, camped here. This small group of enthusiasts founded the first surf camp.
Meanwhile, surfing has become a popular sport, but nothing has been lost from the fascination of the sport. On the contrary, every year, more and more people are enthusiastic about the "sport of kings from ancient Hawaii".
Under professional guidance surfing can be learned quickly and safely and it is enough to have a short week of surfing lessons to be infected by the enthusiasm of the sport forever. The most fun is learning surfing with a group of like-minded people in a surf camp. It does not necessarily have to be a tent camp at the surf camp. It's about being together with other surfers. Therefore, a surf camp can also be a house with apartments or bungalows, it is important that you can do something with the other surfers after the joint surfing. Often this creates new friendships.
The Canary Islands are the ideal place for a surf camp, because like Hawaii, there are warm temperatures all year round, warm water and perfect waves. The ideal place to start surfing and for advanced surfers to improve their surfing skills.
The Canary Island with the best conditions for surfing is Fuerteventura. Here in the south of Fuerteventura are the OTRO MODO surf camps in Costa Calma and Morro Jable.
