Alex – Instructor
In 2006, I landed in Fuerteventura for a windsurfing trip with friends.
The simplicity of the island, the calm and the vast playground for the practice of water sports conquered me. I never left again !
In Germany, I was a school teacher, and studied sports science. I am your surf instructor at the Academy and supervise you methodologically, while sharing my passion for surfing, the ocean and my nutritional knowledge for surfers.
Apart from salty water, I have a passion for permaculture ! My latest projects are the creation of a community agricultural farm in the north of Fuerteventura, and a fish pond! Have a look at my projects & adventures 😊 : A. Hülsberg Permaculture
Sophie – Manager
Swiss girl- loving the heat, the sea & the island life style: I immigrated to the rock in 2010. Then, the big journey started: launch of our surf academy, wedding, birth of our daughter Nayra, surf trips and many adventures…I learnt to surf, to dive, to SUP and to…slow down on the island.
In the middle of the pandemic, I’ve had the cool opportunity to do a sailing course and a Reiki healing & Indian massage training! I’m into self-development and I’m always involved into some learning!
Also, as in my “ex life” I was working for the ICRC (Int. Committee of the Red Cross), it is naturally that I applied as a volunteer at the local Spanish Red Cross.
