Homegrown Surf School, Camp and Shop
We proudly present Homegrown, the surfcompany of Fuerteventura.
The Homegrown homebase (Surfshop, Surfschool and Surfcamp) is situated in the North of the island right at the centre of Corralejo. This is the best part of the island to surf. The Homegrown Shop and Surfschool with Surfcamp was founded in 1995.
Fuerteventura is blessed with good weather and consistent waves all year round, so you can book your holiday whenever you want. Fuerte has the longest beaches of the Canary Islands, but with the lowest population density. Only a small straight separates Fuerteventura from the African continent.
Summer, Sun, Beach,Sand and new Friends...... SURF IT!
The European Hawaii. That's what insiders call Fuerteventura. The easiest way to catch your first wave is to take part at the Homegrown Surfschool.
We offer you a unique surfing experience in a safe and friendly environment. All equipment, surfboards and wetsuits are of the best quality. Being a totally mobile Surfschool we offer transportation in our Surfvehicles (4X4 Land Rovers to get you off road!!) to a variety of the finest beachbreaks of Fuerteventura. Our courses suit all levels and age groups.
You can book the courses with or without accommodation and you can start the course every day of the year (except the 1st of January).
HOMEGROWN IS AN OFFICIAL SURFSCHOOL OF THE CANARY SURFING FEDERATION.
This guarantees that our Surfschool offers:
licensed surfteachers (who obtain also a license of lifeguard)
first class surf equipment for all levels (beginner, intermediate and advanced)
maximum 8 students per instructor (from 9 students, 2 instructors)
the Surfschool is approved by the local authorities
Ready to learn how to catch your first waves?! Here everybody is a beginner, nothing to be ashamed of. You will go surfing everyday and you will make daily progress in your surfing, so after this 6 days course you will be a real surfer. (Also possible to book for a 3 day or 1 day surfcourse, but for a successful evolution in your training we recommend a 6 day course or even better a 2 week course).
If you already did a surfcourse before, but you want to improve your skills and style, or simply want to surf in a good and safe atmosphere, then this is the level for you.
The surfteachers will evaluate your skills and you will improve your surf learning new tricks.
When you book for an intermediate course you will surf custom made surfboards and have the chance to try different types of boards depending on the waves and your level. This course takes place at the same beaches as the beginners course.
Our Surfcamp "Casa Hilda" is located in the centre of Corralejo and only some meters away from our Homegrown Surfshop. Beach, Party, Surf and Shopping everything is within a stone ' throw of the Surfcamp.
The Surfcamp consists of a house in Mediterranean style with an inner courtyard, a sundeck, common kitchen and two bathrooms. Plenty of space to eat, relax and party!
The 5 rooms are featured with 2 - 4 beds.
The sundeck is perfect for relaxing and sunbathing, whereas the inner courtyard is ideal to have a comfortable breakfast, lunch or dinner!
Casa Hilda is also equipped with a big TV and a DVD Player, so watching Surf-Movies while chilling after the surf is possible, too.
At "Casa Hilda" we attach more value on companionship in contrast to the Hotel.
