"Right on San Filipe beach with swimming pool and jacuzzi"
Gran Canaria is an extremely popular destination for Northern Europeans year-round with crowded beaches and plenty of people in the water. For this very reason Surf Guia 2 opened up in the quiet village of San Felipe where you will find serene beaches perfect for nature lovers. The beach front surf-house is simple but with a warm feeling to it. Here you will have everything you need for a relaxing stay including a roof terrace that overlooks the sea. Surf Guia 2 also offer a more up-market option of staying at the new surf apartments MarViva right on San Filipe beach complete with swimming pool and jacuzzi. These ultra-modern apartments can suit groups up to 4 persons. Surf Guia 2 caters to beginners offering surfing classes along with what they call a Surfari: a package where your guide takes you to the best spots of the day to surf, and includes a snack and a DVD with videos of you surfing.
"Get the most out of your surfing vacation"
Surf Guia 2 is right in front of the black sand beach of Vagabundos which even though is a beach break, has two very well defined waves: one out in front, and the other one next to the cliffs at the beach end. You will also be able to surf El Circo a stone beach that has a left, and right-hander that work well during low tide. The best time of year to surf San Filipe is during the winter months when swells can be as big as 12 feet. The managers of the surf camp are Jose Luis a native born Canarian, and German born Niki Gerland who make sure you get the most out of your surfing vacation.
The Surf Guia 2 is the perfect choice for avid surfers, and for people who want to learn to surf.
