  • Ika Ika made my Tenerife experience fullfilling. I just spent 3 weeks on an island attending surfing lessons day after day. My decision to pick Ika Ika instead of many other schools in the area was based on reviews. Firstly I thought I may try other schools for couple days to compare but later on it didn’t even come to my mind. I’ve had such a nice time during lessons and outside of them. As far as I can compare different surfing lessons in other countries, here they really try to care about improvement of individual students, instead of just passing lessons without serious attention. My biggest thanks goes to instructor Julio, who gave me the most out of the course. He genuinely cares, watches you, gives tailored feedbacks, and helps you break bad surfing habits from the past. I appreciated that a lot and will be back to take his lessons again. If there is something I should feedback, then it’s different teaching style of instructors, which is basically everywhere you go. Since I stayed longer period, I had a chance to experience couple of them, and as an intermediate it still confuses me instead of the opposite. And students are changing from a day to day, schedules are different and you may need to go through the similar intro repeatedly. Which makes sense, it is not a time-slotted surfcamp for the same group of people (which would be also nice to have!). Needed to say – it was so much fun! THANKS A LOT. I really value that they always tried to satisfy me in everything possible. 💚

    Unfortunately, our experience with Ika Ika Surf School was disappointing. Three of us, who had been surfing in Tenerife for a couple of months, decided to take a private lesson to work on our techniques within our close group. We booked our lesson and eagerly awaited the day. The lesson was led by a friendly instructor from Peru. The issues began when the school prohibited us from wearing surf shoes to the beach, citing concerns that we might damage the shoes—a clear indication that they prioritized equipment over our safety. At the beach, despite informing the instructor that we had prior surfing experience, he proceeded to spend 10 minutes on the very basics of surfing. Once in the water, our actual surfing session lacked any form of constructive feedback. The instructor’s contributions were limited to cheering on a “Great wave, bro,” without offering any tips or advice. When he attempted to push us into waves, we expressed that we didn’t need the assistance, resulting in him quietly sitting on the lineup, occasionally catching waves himself. This experience was disappointing, especially considering the 140 euro fee, which ultimately did not provide any value. It appears that this school is more suited for offering a surf “excursion” rather than a substantive lesson, which might suffice for tourists visiting for a short period. However, for those looking to improve their skills, it’s not the place. I’m giving one star for the friendly Peruvian instructor and another for the well-maintained surfboards.

    Great surf school located almost directly at the beach. We have been lucky that it wasn’t crowded due to bad weather. José is a great teacher, looked after each one and made sure we were having a good time.

  • The teacher named Santiago has no idea how to teach the students. He brought the students – beginners into really big and agresiv waves. His group split apart immidiatelly. He has no control on anybody and he left the group alone. It was just a matter of time when the possible accident could occure. He came 10 minutes before the class ends alone from the water and he left his group all alone in water. He should never ever teach anybody again.

    If you wanna learn how to surf, this has got to be your go-to school! They don’t just teach you how to surf they teach you how to be passionate about it! The whole staff is amazing and very friendly. It was my first surfing experience and our instructor Domenico made it so much fun. He was patient and very helpful with every single one of us during the whole lesson. He put his all to make it an unforgettable experience! Thank you to the whole staff!

    I have been coming there since 2014 for courses and rentals. Good teachers, and they limit the group size as much as possible, which makes for a nicer experience in the water. They will also tell you if the day is NOT good for surfing instead of just taking your money, I very much respect that! Equipment is also in good state, they had some new suits and just when I left a delivery of new boards arrived. So, I recommend them all around and will come back!
