Ika Ika Surf School

Teaching Surfing in Tenerife for 10 years

We are Ika Ika

It was the year 2013 when the waves of Playa de Las Américas, south of the Island of Tenerife, began to rise behind us.


We bravely decided to paddle up that liquid mountain. Sinking our arms into the water we generated the first force, the sling reached us and gently, but decisively, propelled us over the surface of the Atlantic Ocean.
Thus we began a journey that has not stopped to this day.
10 years have passed and we continue to grow, learn and apply the philosophy of Surfing in our daily lives.

Our name “Ika Ika” is inspired by a word from the Hawaiian language that translates into bravery, strength and courage, virtues that every surfer cultivates in each session.
With that idea, at Ika Ika Surf School, we understand our work as a beautiful task that seeks to transmit passion in each class and inspiration in each Wave.


Every day we have the pleasure and duty of lighting a spark within our students, human beings who decide to begin to understand and learn how to surf the Waves that life gives us.


On a surfboard our bodies and minds connect and thanks to trial and error, learning begins that turns simple moments into epic adventures, in which we conquer and overcome fears and doubts.

Definitely at Ika Ika Surf School we understand Surfing as a therapeutic activity in which fun and physical discipline meet to strengthen us and make us capable of being part of the moving ocean.

Together with the Canarian Surf Federation we teach lessons that change lives.
Committed to nature, in our classes we share and cultivate values ​​that bring us closer to our environment in a friendly way, appreciating each beach as a temple in which we worship the joy of the present moment.

Each Wave is a lesson, so we flow over the volcanic rock of Playa de Las Américas. We believe and accept error as an infallible form of learning.
We evolve in each class thanks to a Staff of qualified professional Instructors, dedicated and inspired to transmit what they are passionate about, riding waves regardless of the conditions of an ocean that always leaves us something to learn.

No matter where our students come from, we always find a way to communicate and spread the magic of a “sports” activity that more than that is a form of art, a way of seeing a life that does not stop, like the tides that rise or they go down and allow us to change and improve as human beings.

We are in the South of Tenerife, we have the perfect boards and equipment to start your journey on the Waves, we work during all seasons of the year and just like in Surfing, in our work, in each class we continue to learn and become more powerful.

So, don’t wait any longer, dare to be part of the Sea movement, we don’t promise that it will be easy but we do assure you that together we will make it more fun.
See you on the water.
