What do I have to bring?
Equipment
Of course, that depends on your plans on Gran Canaria. I've created a packing list for mountain bike holidays on the island, which might serve you as a guide. In general, you should always be prepared for a little bit of rain as well, especially in the winter months. No need to go crazy, just some basic rain protection and maybe a fleece jacket to stay dry and warm is enough.
Do I need an insurance?
Insurance
I hold a liability insurance, as dictated by law, as well as a voluntary accident insurance, which covers medical treatment and transport in case of an accident. As these insurances are limited to my guided tours, I recommend you to get a liability and accident insurance, which covers your activities. Many companies offer combined packages for athletes, which is a good investment, given that you don't have to worry about it on your vacation.

Trail Running

What do I need for trail running?
Trail Running Equipment
Trail Running is an awesome sport because you basically don't need anything special but still you get all the fun! Of course, you can get fancy poles, trail shoes, hydration packs, etc. In the end, all nothing of it is indispensable. My tours on the trails of Gran Canaria are not ultra races through the Copper Canyons. A pair of running shoes, a shirt, shorts and some water is all you need.
How long do the tours take?
Trail Running Tour Duration
According to your preferences, the tours take around 1-2 hours (time in movement). You determine the pace and a number of breaks. Having that in mind, there absolutely no problem if we take a bit longer.

Tour Organisation
In general, we meet around in the morning at the place of your choice (I might have to charge an extra depending on your location). From there, we head to the starting point of the route in my car. My tours are usually round trips, so we return to the car and drive back to the place where I previously picked you up.

How difficult are the tours?
Tour difficulty?
In general, I try to make the tours demanding for everyone without going too far. The safety of each participant and of the group is always my primary concern. Depending on group size and composition I adapt the technical and physical difficulty, which also influences route choice. In any case, you should have a good basic physical and technical level.
How is the course of the mountain bike tours?
MTB tour course?
We usually meet at the Plaza de la Música in Las Palmas or the Hotel Rural Las Calas in San Mateo. I can adjust the starting time according to your preferences, but it is advisable to start in the morning. After a short welcome briefing and a bike check, we start the tour. It goes without saying, that we take all the breaks and photo stops you like. Depending on the route we're back after 3-5 hours (pure riding time is usually 2-3 hours).

Surf equipment
You get all the necessary equipment from Atlantis Surfhostel. All you need to bring is your what you need for a day at the beach (a lunch pack is included in the surf course).

Location surf classes
Normally we meet at the Atlantis Surfhostel in San Felipe. Depending on the conditions the lessons take place in the north, in Las Palmas or in the east. If you can't get to San Felipe, I can pick also you up in Las Palmas.
