The birth of Tenerife Surf Point, a Russian school of surfing, dates back to 2013. Its owner and the head coach of surfing and paddle boarding is Kristine Zukova being likewise an instructor of the Canary and International Surfing Federation. Having taught surfing all across the globe and travelling a great deal, Kris (that’s how all the trainees call her) decided to settle down in Tenerife, finally feeling at home. From the outset, Kris came to the island at the invitation of one of the surf schools in the South of Tenerife. In the very first months of working the amount of applicants wanting to learn to surf was so high that at times she had 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 bent on taking a break – quit and enjoyed surfing without teaching for a while… That blazing-off ended up quite soon since the fancied trainees wished for further growth under Kris’s guidance. Succession of requests and feedbacks throughout the year turned Tenerife Surf Point into a school with its on-site surfing campground, daily classes, paddle boarding, yoga, pilates and balance training.
Since the very opening, the Russian school of surfing Tenerife Surf Point is on the list among official schools of surfing of the Canary Surfing Federation. Tenerife Surf Point is all certified with full insurance provided so that you can surf safely. Every year, Tenerife Surf Point teaches children and adults, organizes surf camps and a simply joyous recreation on the island of Tenerife. For three years on end in the summer and other times of the year we launch groups of surfing for kids while their holidays.
Tenerife Surf Point is the first school of surfing in Tenerife to teach you both: theory and on-water practice in Russian. You will be given clear explanations and answers to all your questions. At the beginning and the end of each class, we go through all the obscure points to purge any doubts you may have.
The school is growing with each year and now Tenerife Surf Point offers you not only surfing alone, but also snorkeling, paddle board rides and training, getting to know such sea creatures as dolphins and sea turtles, as well as a comfortable rest in surfhouse.
