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

Telegit is a as professional surfing school as it gets. I've had my share of testing a few different ones in various places, this one stands out in the best possible way. I came with the hope of receiving some coaching, gaining confidence in the water and breaking out of my comfort zone when it comes to advancing catching green waves. Not only does Tilegit provide equipment in a great condition, the teachers above all are the best ones out there. They listen and trust the students about their surfing level and adjust the time and spot of the lesson accordingly. Everything that is in the coaches' power that can be done to make sure the lessons are most advantageous for the students - Telegit coaches do it. Going to this particular school was no accident in my case and it exceeded my expectations. My coach (Alvaro) was absolutely amazing. He's one of the teachers who actually care about you, your development and safety on water. Although itd be easiest to take out students in the whitewash, he put in a lot of effort into taking our group to more challenging spots. He gave our whole group (spanish/english) great tips and insights on practically everything. No question went unanswered, he frequently would demonstrate on the waves the current element we'd work on. What most surprised me was his ability to individually assess and guide everyone in his group - noone was ignored, forgotten or left out. Al was a coach I felt I could fully rely on. Al created true, wonderful surf trainings and was absolutely the best surf coach I had. The lessons were thought through, I knew what id be working on in the water. Lots of laughs, lots of support and new knowledge (for intermediate level surfers, begginers too). I'd recommend Tilegit to everyone seriously looking for surf skill improvement, and if you happen to get Alvaro as your coach - you have a guaranteed great lesson and person next to you. To be honest I didn't know you could progress this much in one week! I want to be a good surfer, that's why if everything allows I'll be back the Tilegit 10000%.

I had the most fantastic time with Tilegit! My instructor Alvaro was very professional, I learned a lot and felt very safe and motivated in the water. Definitely one of the best teachers out there! Being an intermediate surfer I was pleasantly surprised that we surfed on different spots (always very well chosen by our teacher) and that the time of our lessons were always adjusted so that we experience the best possible conditions 🙂 The boards were in very good condition and there was a wide range of sizes to chose from. I strongly reccomend Tilegit to anyone who wants to learn surfing. I was super happy going to every class- my teacher and all the other instructors we’ve met in the water and in the school created a wonderful atmosphere and gave me so many great memories 🙂 Thank you Tilegit, surely I will try to come again! 🙂

Ich muss doch sagen, eine sehr coole, private Surfschule. Die Jungs, können mehrere Sprachen, somit ist Verständigung kein Problem. Vorher sollte man auf jedenfall gut trinken und an ausreichend Sonnenschutz denken. Private Sachen, wie z.B. einen Rucksack, kann man vor Ort in einem abschließbaren Fach unterbringen. Eine Umkleide gibt auch und dann geht's los. Ein kurzer Weg zum Strand, wo nur Surfer sind. Keine Badegäste, was echt super ist. Man kann zwischen Einzel- und Gruppentraining wählen. Auf dem Wasser helfen alle einander und feuern dich an. Nach gut 2 Stunden ist man fix und fertig. Ich hatte Einzeltraining was für mich perfekt war, da ich schon Longboard, Snowboard und Wakeboard fahre. Die Gruppe bestand aus 3-5 Leuten mit insgesamt 2 Lehrern.( Meiner inbegriffen). In der Gruppe waren auch einige dabei die schon etwas erfahrener waren. Daher war es für die anderen wie Einzeltraining. Mega Surfschule. Perfekt für jedermann.

We had an awesome group surf lesson with Marcel! He was encouraging and hilarious. Made the difficult task of learning to surf very fun (even when we were getting waterboarded by waves). Would recommend!!! On an unrelated note, I hope he watches the Marcel the Shell video on YouTube

Highly recommend! My son had the absolute best time surfing at Tilegit. He begged to surf EVERY DAY of vacation. Nico was really friendly with him and patient. In my son's words "I really like Nico! He is so nice and really supportive. He always says 'Max you can do this!' and then I do!" I can't thank the guys enough for giving my son such a great experience.
