ABOUT US

ABOUT US

Tilegit Surf School was founded by three friends whose lifestyle revolved around the ocean and surfing since their childhood in the place they call home – Playa de las Americas. It is truly the success story of how they turned their passion into their life’s work.

Earmarked by the locals as the only Surf School in the area to offer advanced surf lessons, Tilegit has had the privilege of coaching competitive surfers, including the pro surfer, Paolo Giorgi, the Junior Surf Champion of Spain, and Daniela Boldini, the winner of the Europe WQS las Americas Pro – Open division.

Since its launch in 2017, we have passionately pursued the adventure of making the learning experience extra fun for everyone who joins our school. Whether you are here to ride your first unbroken wave or a pro surfer looking to enhance your technique, we promise to expand your surfing horizon with our unmatched expertise in the sport, local insight, and love for all things las Americas. Catch your next adrenaline rush with us!

For the love of Surfing and all things las Americas

MEET OUR TEAM

NACHO SEBASTIA

The original founder of Tilegit Surf School, Nacho Sebastia is a lifelong oceaneer, high-performance surf instructor, and entrepreneur. He started the School offering surf coaching only to advance learners which later diversified to cater to a wider audience. The honour of training several pro-level champion surfers belongs to Nacho.

NICO AGUIRRE

Completing the trio is Nico Aguirre, another son of the ocean and surf instructor in love with the tropical life las Americas has to offer. As a first-class surfer, he is most at home in his second skin that is his wetsuit and is popular among our kiddie surfers learning to catch their first few waves.

Raised in las Americas, Nacho Aguirre too was a surf instructor before he joined the Tilegit Surf School as a second partner and helped expand the business to include surf lessons for all levels. Full-time surfer, casual golfer, and nightlife enthusiast, Nacho is especially skilled with advanced-level surfers.

Muy buena escuela con muy buena gente y profesional,fui con mi hijo de 9 años y en primer lugar destacar q se preocuparon por el niño por q el mar estaba muy grande,no pensaron en hacer negocio si no por su seguridad y rápidamente consiguieron q una de sus monitoras q es una crack del surfing (Daniela Boldini) se metiera a surfear con él. Encantados con la experiencia

My son and I had a great experience with tilegit. I did my first lesson with them in august 2020 and continued doing lessons with this school for over 2 years. I was lucky to find them as I believe I would have not connected with surf the way I did if it wasn’t for them.

BEST SURF SCHOOL IN LAS AMERICAS My girlfriend and I tried a few surf schools in the area and this one is certainly the best one. The team is super nice and provides dedicated and individualized support for every participant, depending on each person's experience level. They also have a photographer that sells you any photos you like afterwards. As an improvement point, it would be nice if they had lockers in the surf school to store valuables. By the way, we noticed that some other schools in the area have many more reviews/ratings solely because they offer free photos if participants leave a review, not because of better performance.

An amazing experience for us for our first time lesson. Our coach Alvaro was a super good teacher: very sharp at noticing mistakes and giving personal tips, explaining what went well and what went wrong, and of course so much fun! Thanks a lot!
