The Tenerife Surf Point opened in 2013, continuing to grow since then. Its owner and first coach is Kristine Zukova. Kris has taught surfing all around the world and finally decided to settle in Tenerife after feeling the homey vibe. Kris began on Tenerife at the invitation of one of the surf schools in the south of Tenerife. Within the first months of starting teaching, the number of applicants seeking to learn to surf was so high that she sometimes needed to stay in water for up to 12 hours a day (each class lasts 2 hours). After working for 18 months at a stretch, Kris wanted a break-she quit and enjoyed surfing without teaching for a while. That time ended up being short-lived, however-the trainees wanted more from her continued guidance and made requests throughout the year, leading to growing success.

After teaching courses on how to surf, Ocean Surf School team of instructors wants to provide a family-fun environment. Their aim is to make sure that people come away feeling like they’ve made new friends and had an amazing time. They also offer extra activities like going with the dolphins, jet skiing, Teide excursions, and scuba courses.

The instructors Estela and Angel of SurfSchool Sb  Surf Academy are able to provide their students with perfect conditions. They know where to find the best spots, how to provide great theory, and they also teach private lessons.

Fun is guaranteed and Angel also conveys a great atmosphere. They are designed for all levels: beginner, amateur, or advanced. All students get individualized attention and they can follow the theory and practice of surfing lessons in Ruotee’s Covid-measures. The material is great, their programs are unpolluted,  100% recommended!
