We love Fuerteventura, obviously, and you should too if you love surfing! We believe that especially among the Canary Islands, Fuerteventura is the best island for surfing. And by that we mean: the best island for all levels of surfing – beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Read here why you need to come surfing in Fuerteventura with us!
Why start surfing in Fuerteventura as a beginner?
We don’t know any other island that deals with surf courses like Fuerteventura does. Normally when you take a surflesson, you are going with your surf class to one specific beach – the beach you can walk to from the surf camp where you are getting lessons. In Fuerteventura on the other hand, it is most likely to go to multiple beaches throughout the island. Why is this? Because all the surf camps drive the students to the beaches that have the right conditions to learn to surf, while on other islands you are restricted to walk to one beach to go surfing. We believe that this is incredibly valuable and special, since you will have a higher chance of good waves and will see more of the island! If you want to start surfing in Fuerteventura, but you are a beginner, it may be best to go with a surf camp and take some surf lessons – especially if it is your first time.
Why come surfing Fuerteventura as an intermediate surfer?
Especially during autumn and winter, when the swell is coming in, Fuerteventura is a surfers paradise for intermediate surfers. There is always a wave to be surfed since there are so many different surf spots all over Fuerteventura. Depending on the conditions some beginner spots can turn into intermediate spots and the other way around. There are spots where intermediate surfers can surf between beginners when they don’t feel confident enough to go to more advanced spots, but also spots where both intermediate and advanced surfers like to go ride some waves.
Why surf in Fuerteventura when you are an advanced surfer?
There is a reason for people calling Fuerteventura the Hawaii of Europe – there are some incredibly challenging waves. Especially from September till April the swell kicks in and the more advanced surfers will be paddling daily.
