Passion for canoeing
Esteban Medina and Sara MartíLivingsea CEOs & Founders
Livingsea was born from the enthuasiasm of showing canoeing to the world through its teaching and promotion.
We believe that everyone can enjoy canoeing and that is why we want to introduce this sport to those who do not know it.
We have been challenging the waves of the bay of Las Alcaravaneras (Gran Canaria) since we started paddling canoes as kids.

One fine, in the mid-2000s
surfski came into our lives to change them forever.
With them, we began to surf in open waters, to go further, to grow, to create a team and become experts in a type of canoe that, at that time, was not well known in Spain.
Having stable surfski models made it possible for us to open up the practice of this sport to almost anyone in Canary Islands. Since then, the horizon has been our destination and the enthusiasm our engine.
What we have achieved
In recent years, over ten thousand people have learned to paddle for the first time with Livingsea.
A meeting point for paddlers
What we dream of
We want (and will achieve) surfski to become of the most practiced sports in Canarias. Because we are islanders and the sea is our roots.
We would like to be the travel destination to most of the surfski paddlers in the world
We dream of a World Surfski Networdk in which we combine wind and waves to surf together
We believe that surfski can be a more relevant discipline in Spain
We are confident in having a High Performance Paddler Training Center
We aspire to continue enjoying the "surfski lifestyle": train, travel and compete to be ON, because life is to live it doing what you love the most
Over a decade
In our 10 years of life, we have created what is possibly the most active adult surfski school in the world. Currently, Las Alcaravaneras Beach a global reference in the practice of this sport. Everyday, over 200 athletes train in the bay.
We started with just two people in this project and today we have a team of 20 instructors in the summer season. We have helped in the growth of this sport on the island, in the country and around the world.
