Kitesurfing in Canaries?

Postby lavueltalmundo » Wed Apr 07, 2021 6:04 pm

Hi guys,

I'm in Tenerife at the moment, but looking for different spots. How is the kitesurf conditions in Fuerteventura and Lanzarote? Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks!

I like Fuerteventura. Some nice wave spots in the north and the lagoon in the south (check tide calender). Something for everyone.

Thanks so much Ben, did you find that Fuerteventura had consistent wind? I find that more often than not Médano and Cabezo has very chaotic and gusty wind and I wonder if it might be similar in Fuerteventura.

I was in Corralejo in North Fuerteventura last February for a week and was able to kite several days with steady wind. I will definitely come back. I truly recommend that place. Beach is amazing.

Lavuelta,

all Canary Islands have winds form the same system, wich is not at its best right now...you're a bit early. I doubt you'll find a really consistent spot anywhere right now on any of the islands. You just have to be lucky. The system only really starts working at the end of May, when the islands warm up more and thermic forces pull the passing trade winds across the kitespots.

Have fun,

Or6

Thanks Or6, u was hunting for different spots in Tenerife more up North, but they usually had a wind shadow that made the wind even less steady. Appreciate the feedback and info!
