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
