Seven islands and six islets make up the Canary Islands. El Hierro, La Gomera, La Palma, Fuerteventura, Tenerife, Lanzarote and Gran Canaria, seven volcanic islands with huge natural diversity and 40% of their area protected in reserves.
Almost 1,600 km. of coastline, average temperatures of 19ºC in winter and 23ºC in summer, 3000 hours of sunshine per year, steady winds and a lava reef ocean floor full or life: Unbeatable conditions.
It all adds up to one of the best places on Earth for wind and wave sports and boarders from all over Europe flock to the islands year after year. The wide range of beaches means that you can tour a range of spits in a short time looking for that perfect wave. Most spots have surf schools, equipment rental and, of course, a welcoming atmosphere that makes every boarder feel at home.
The islands are also a training hotspot for the world’s top pros who come here every year because of the Atlantic winds and top-notch hotels and facilities. It’s no coincidence that Tenerife, Gran Canaria, Fuerteventura & Lanzarote host annual international competitions on the PWA and VKWC circuits.
Sun, waves and wind. There’s no better combination for surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing and bodyboarding. Come to the Canary Islands and you’ll find the lot, all-year-round.
