What month is famara best for surfing? - Hi everyone,
When is Lanzarote best for surfing? What months bring the best surf?

By Anonymous , 22-05-2007

Famara - Famara is wicked - you have the beach for beginners and the reef for more intermediates. To live - excellent - very tranquilla but things liven at the weekend in the local hot spots!!! Beginners looking for instruction checkout Claudio Santos - amazing - you'll find him on the beach - best instructor ever
