Leisure Time Activities Corralejo
You are back from your first surf lesson and you can’t really feel, let alone move, your arms and shoulders anymore? Then some yoga or a professional massage will get you back on track and your body ready for another day in the water! Or surfing alone is not enough to let you sleep at night? If you really want to burn off energy, then crossfit is for you.
Free time activities Corralejo
And even though Corralejo is all about surfing, there is much more to do! Explore the (sub) marine life while diving and whale watching or glide over the ocean on a sailboat. And there is plenty to see on land as well! Riding horses along the seaside in the sunset or explore the island inland in a 4×4 with “Vulcanic Experience” – there is always something to do!
Relaxing or Action, whatever activity you are going for, just let us know and we are happy to organise it for you!
Yoga and surfing perhaps have not always been connected to each other, but over time and with the development of the respective lifestyles it became clear that the two are not so different after all and complement each other almost perfectly. Yoga and surfing – that goes together like beach and salt water! As a surfer yoga prepares you for the next session and improves your body control – some yoga poses even seem to be made for surfers and serve as perfect warm-up exercises on the beach. And the other way round, yogis can experience a whole new level of focus, intensity and fun on the board while surfing.
No wonder that pros like Kelly Slater practice yoga to supplement their surfing skills! But regardless of whether you’re a pro or beginner – your surfing will definitely benefit from yoga!
Practicing asana (yoga postures) and pranayama (breathing technique) can improve surfing performance. Backward bending give the surfer strength in the back while paddling or duck diving under the waves. Balance positions increase concentration helping staying on the board in critical situations. Twisting positions bring power to turns, forward bending help with flexibility while inversions increase strength and develops awareness. Pranayama increases breathing capacity, important when being held under water.
Come and sign up for a yoga class in our office! Diogo, our surf instructor is also a certified and experienced yoga teacher and offers yoga evening sessions every tuesday and thursday convienently in the surf camp.
Improve your surfing through greater flexibility, stronger core muscles, improved breathing, more balance and greater mental focus!
Just surfing is not enough for you and you want to enhance your fitness and endurance during your holiday? Then Crossfit is the perfect sport for you! Crossfit, developed by Greg Glassmann in 2000, is based on functional movements to strenghten the whole musculoskeletal system, improve the endurance and optimize the motion-sequence. Functional movements are nothing else but movements that are designed for the human body and that we do every day like jumping, running, bending, lifting, pushing, etc. Therefore you just need little fitness devices (e.g. medicine balls, boxes, olympic rings, rowing machines, weights and ‘kettlebells’), but nevertheless the training is very diversified and the exercises will be performed with a high intensity to optimize the training effect. Crossfit Fuerteventura offers you a perfect training area to do Crossfit. The training area, the so-called ‘box’ is located in Lajares, just a few minutes by car away from Corralejo. But the training is not just only in the ‘box’, it’s also in the nature and with natural fitness devices such as stones, branches and whatever else you can find in the nature to use it for training. The small group size is perfect for an individual and personal guidance through the licensed and qualified instructors.

The riding stable Tara is not a normal horse farm, but a non-profit organisation that is operated by the “Asociación Amigos de la Vida Sana” by Fanny Jeckstadt-Borchert. This association rescues neglected horses by buying them off their former owners and then gently leading them back to a normal life. They regain confidence in people and are slowly integrated into riding. This concept is well planed and works out perfectly – all horses are calm and used to people so they offer a great horse riding experience. The guided rides are suitable for beginners as well as advanced. Especially the ride along the cliffs and the spectacular views fascinate riders of every level and age. Highlight: the ride into the sunset. The rides take 1.5 to 2 hours and back at the house you’ll be spoiled with Spanish tapas. You will be picked up at your accommodation and brought back after the excursion.
