Multicines Deiland in Playa Honda:

At the earlier time of 19:40 The Fault in Our Stars continues. Based on John Green's book, it tells the story of Hazel (Shailene Woodley) and Gus (Ansel Elgort), two teenagers who share an acerbic wit, a disdain for the conventional and a love that sweeps them on a journey. Their relationship is all the more miraculous given that Hazel's other constant companion is an oxygen tank, Gus jokes about his prosthetic leg, and they met and fell in love at a cancer support group.

Surf Lessons in Lanzarote

We both enjoy a spot of bodyboarding off the beaches of Arrieta or Famara once in a while, but despite living here for fourteen years, we hadn’t tried learning to surf until recently.

Lavaflow Surf kitting up

There are many surf schools in Lanzarote the majority of which are based in Famara. Lavaflow Surf however is listed as the top attraction on TripAdvisor for Puerto del Carmen and they’ve been awarded the Certificate of Excellence 2014 with 143 excellent reviews published. We arranged to meet up with surf instructors Paul and Phil and give it a go!

We met our group of wanna-be surfers at Playa de Famara. There was a mix of nationalities and ages and it was going to be an interesting day out on the water. After kitting up in wetsuits and rash vests, we all took part in a stretch and warm up session on the beach. Afterwards we were divided up into those that had tried surfing before, and novices. Phil took the more experienced people and we headed off with Paul and our surfboards for a safety briefing on the sand.

Lavaflow Surf Instructors

The guys are passionate about water safety and before they would let loose in the ocean, they gave us a detailed briefing and showed us how to recognise a rip current and what to do if you get caught up in one. Famara is not a beach for  read more »
