Aloha And Welcome To


Zona Surf Coaching Academy is the first 100% surf coaching school in Lanzarote. Lanzarote is often called the “Hawaii” of Europe with consistent surfing conditions all year round and a wide variety of surf spots suitable for all levels of surfing.

My name is Gustavo Barreto a.k.a. ‘Magoo’. I am professional surfer with many years of local knowledge and experience in surf tuition, giving you the unique opportunity to discover the best waves and exercises to improve your skills, always under maximum security and according to your personal needs.

My services focus on personalized surf coaching and surfing athletes preparedness. I give private classes or in very small groups never mixing different levels in the same session. I will help you in your first steps or improve your surfing performance in a fun and chilled out atmosphere. Whether you’ve surfed before or you’re new to surfing you’ll be individually coached with set goals and performance analysis to ensure you improve. I guarantee a jump forward in your performance and as a result, more fun! I am a ISA certified instructor as well as beach lifeguard.

I also rent surf boards, from beginner foamies to pro level shorties.

Our speciality


I believe that a good surf lesson is the easiest and fastest way to learn and/or improve your surfing.

I will advise you on what surfboard you should be riding. I take into account your physical condition and make sure you have the appropriate surf gear and show you the best for your abilities.I will teach you the fundamentals such as safety, surf ethics, wind, tides, wave formation, etc.
Lessons are in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese or Italian.

I am a professional surfer, and I will help you in your first steps into the surfing experience, improving your current surfing skills as well as guide experienced surfers to the best waves and how to deal with all aspects of competing.
