Surfing in Tenerife

Pipes, air, take off... surfing techniques that may perhaps not mean anything yet and which perhaps may be little known on Tenerife. On the same level as the best places in the world, you can start this sport here, on beaches such as Fitenia in the south or El Socorro, Almäciga and Benijo in the north. On the solid coast of Anaga enviable Winds with spectacular waves are enjoyed, leaving new sensations. Tenerife is considered by experts to be one of the best places in the world for surfing at any time.


Windsurfing in Tenerife

Only four elements are essential for practising this pleasant sport: a board, a sail, good wind and the right waves. The windsurfer fixes the mood. The unique El Médano beach in Granadilla de Abona has become a village for dozens of windsurfing overs, staying for long and short periods and coming from all over the world, because the winds come to beat the seven and eight knots. Windsurfing is breathed everywhere; there are board storage facilities, board repair and construction workshops, shops specialising in this sport. Beginners who want to go little by little have the Playa Grande (Arico) and those who already do tricks on the waves have La Jaquita (Granadilla de Abona).


Kitesurfing in Tenerife

Kitesurfing and Tenerife. The perfect combination. This sport has hundreds of fans who come here to meet the winds sustained on beaches like Los Balos, El Médano and La Tejita; host for the annual championships with the very best taking part. Those practising the sport carry out stunts on the water, holding on to a kite that lifts them. several meters up into the air with every jump. It is almost as spectacular to watch as to practise. If you have never had the opportunity to feel this experience, do it, sign up for the classes that various local schools offer.
