During the first week in November last year (2013) our group of 30 students decided to leave campus after a strenuous exam period and go surfing in Tenerife. Our group consisted of both men and women, some with previous surfing experience and some with none what so ever. As the week progressed we had a wonderful experience with nice weather, good food, a few nights out and off course lots and lots of surfing!
The days consisted of one to two surf lessons which were very appreciated by everyone. It was very encouraging to see the beginner group develop, as at the end of the week catching they were catching wave after wave on their own! The more experienced surfers also got a lot of great waves, a lot thanks to the instructors who helped them out with tips on local surf break conditions and surfing techniques in general. We all thought surfing was a blast and many of us would have been happy to stay on for another week.
Apart from surfing we also engaged in many other activities; many of us tried snorkeling just outside the camp by the rocks where you also could do some cliff jumping (if you where the daring kind!). Another high-light was when we went longboarding on closed off and newly paved roads, which was awesome!
The culinary and nightlife experience is also worth mentioning. E.g. one night our whole group of 30 student arranged a dinner at a local restaurant recommended by the surf camp manager Fernando. The food there was excellent and after being treated to such delights we tried the Playa de Las Americas night life. But off course we still went up early surfing the next day!
We want to thank the staff at Surf camp Tenerife and United Surf Camps for this wonderful experience. Many of us want to go back, for sure!
