Welcome to OTRO MODO Surfcamp on Fuerteventura. The Canary Islands are known to be the European Hawaii a reputation the island truly deserves. It's not only the vulcanic origion, the year-round summerlike climate, warm blue water and the relaxed population what make Fuerteventura tha Atlantic relative of the Hawaiian islands - it's the perfect surf condtions.

OTRO MODO is not a big tour operator, OTRO MODO are people who follow their passion and ethusiasm for surfing and want to share this lifestyle with you. We want that everybody, equal how old and how experienced, enjoys surfing as much as we do. For this we set high value in friendly service, individual care and safety. 

Every day we go by our 4WDs (Landrover Defender) to the surf spot/beach which provides the best waves for the surf level of our surf students. Thanks to our committed and licensed intructors, our small coach-student-ratio (1 to 6), modern course concepts, video analysis and quality surf material (Billabong) your surfing progresses every day. 

Surfschool founder Christof Uhlmann and his international team are looking foreward to meet and explore the fantastic beaches and waves with you. 

Tip: Many of the surf spots in the south of Fuerteventura are still almost undiscovered by now. So it's quite usual to surf very good waves with just a hand full of other surfers in the water and not seldom on your own.

Location & surf

Morro Jable is one of the last villages on Fuerteventura where you can still experience authentic Spain. On the little sea side boardwalk with it's fish restaurants and in the narrow alleys with it's Tapas bars time seems to stand still sometimes. Childreen running laughing through the streets late in the evening and old men sitting on park benches talking about live, everybody seems to know everybody and hast time for a friendly hello and chat. 

From Morro Jable it's only 10 minutes foot walk on the beach promenade to Jandia where the Cruz Roja on of the best waves of Fuerteventura is situated. With it's mellow left handers and long right handers this wave is ideal for a sunset surf after the surf lessons. 

In our surfschool's office in Morro Jable we rent out beach cruiser bikes with surfboard racks.

Costa Calma is young tourist vilage that stretched out from the Canada del Rio until the wide beaches and the lagoon of Sotanvento. The village has everything you need in a vacation, small shops, a beautiful beach, bars, restaurants and a disco.  Costa Calma is at the narrowest part of the island from the east coast to the wild west coast it's only 3,5km. You want to surf and wind surf or kite surf? Than you are the right place there are some excellent wind surfing and kite surfing schools in Costa Calma.

El Pozo (Distance: 2484m)

El Pozo is right next to Cruz Roja directly in front of the light house. Wind swells from the north west make this wave become alive. It's needs strong passat winds and a windswell up from five foot. The waves wrap around the little headland and form a fast and hollow lefthander. You would be suprised how good wind waves can be. As the passat winds are off shore in the south of Fuerteventura you have wind swell but off shore wind. So in a nut shell. This wave can be a lot of fun, especially on the days were everything else is blown out. With bigger windswells up from 10ft you can have proper barrels here. 

Wave Type:Beach Break
Wave Quality:World Class
Bottom:Sand
Direction:Left & Right
Best Tide:Mid
Experience Level:Beginner
Starts working at (ft):2
Holds up to (ft):25

Cruz Roja (Distance: 2928m)

The Cruz Roja, needs strong swells from the north west or little south swells to start working. If it's on you will see strong and long righthanders with long walls for maneuvers and hollow sections. In the right swell and tide this wave can be a worldclass righthanders like you see in movies and maganzines. 

Tip: If the peak is to crowded, try the lefthanders they are not as good as the right handers but usualy empty.

Wave Type:Beach Break
Wave Quality:Normal
Bottom:Sand
Direction:Left & Right
Best Tide:Mid
Experience Level:Beginner
Starts working at (ft):8
Holds up to (ft):24

Iberostar (Distance: 3974m)

This spot works only when it's big. The west coast needs to be completly out of control. Also the waves out Cruz Roja must be at least overhead. If it works it provides nice long right handers, which are usually completely uncrowded as everybody wants to surf Cruz Roja. Good spot to avoid crowds. 

Wave Type:Beach Break
Wave Quality:Normal
Bottom:Sand
Direction:Left
Best Tide:Mid
Experience Level:Beginner
Starts working at (ft):4
Holds up to (ft):8

Esquinzo Left (Distance: 6961m)

Little Point Break that works with wind swells from the north east. Wait for strong winds that buidl up wind waves. You need 4ft of windswell minimum 6 to 7 are perfect. If everything works well you have long running hip high lefthanders with off shore wind. Good for your old long board!

Wave Type:Beach Break
Wave Quality:Regional Class
Bottom:Sand
Direction:Left & Right
Best Tide:Mid
Experience Level:Beginner
Starts working at (ft):3
Holds up to (ft):16

Cofete (Distance: 7645m)

One of the longest, most deserted and beautiful beaches of Fuertevetura. Cofete has it all beautiful landscap and nice wave. Wait for a day with less swell and less wind. Than it can be perfect. An endless beach with many sand banks and nobody surfs. Even crowds could not make this spot crowded as that beach stretches out for kilometers. Usualy most people are to lazy to go there so you will always surf on your own. Don't forget your camera. 

Wave Type:Reef Break
Wave Quality:Regional Class
Bottom:Reef
Direction:Right
Best Tide:Mid
Experience Level:Intermediate
Starts working at (ft):4
Holds up to (ft):8

Salinas (Distance: 13383m)

A strong swell from the north west makes this spot working. If it works small it's easy to ride and also good for a long board. As bigger it get's as more barreling and hollow it gets. Good thing thanks to the direction the spot faces and the mountains in the back it's almost always off shore here.

Wave Type:Beach Break
Wave Quality:Normal
Bottom:Sand
Direction:Left & Right
Best Tide:Mid
Experience Level:Beginner
Starts working at (ft):2
Holds up to (ft):7

La Pared (Distance: 22655m)

Beautiful beach at the wast coast. It's easy to get there and meny people surf there. Can be close out on big days. Not the best surf break in the world, but an option on many surfing days and sometimes really good.
