Often considered by surfers as the "Hawaii of the Atlantic", this volcanic archipelago emerges from the ocean to receive swells from all directions.
These swells finish their run on a wide variety of coral and lava edge, with a comparable all good surf destinations power.
From October to April waves of 1.30m to 5m break on the reefs the best exposed . Tropical hurricanes in the southern USA also send some nice waves west in August and September .

Winds govern your days surfing. A good check of the direction and strength will be the recipe for a successful session. From October to April, the winter wind is weaker and oriented E / NE . It turns north at the entrance to the summer when conditions are smaller and often onshore . Then prefer a morning session or at sunset .
The tides are about 2 meters high and quite significantly alter the appearance of spots in shallow water. Attention to the power of some spots and protection What exercise certain premises. Provide slippers to avoid the lava and sea urchins will transform your feet into Swiss cheese ! Provide 2 coverall 3 / November to May , because the water is cool ( about 18 °).

We surf a lot and for a long time in the fortunate islands, as they were nicknamed.
From the South of Gran Canaria, to Tenerife’s coasts, going through Lanzarote and its neighbour Fuerteventura, the Atlantic’s Hawaii, the archipelago is well-known for its waves.
Nice in winter, always some swell, mild water and sun, barrels reachable by plane from France.We like their moon-like scenery, the fiesta and Latin atmosphere at night.
An excellent compromise : the warranty of going on a low-cost trip not too far away and the certainty of having waves of great quality.
Geologically speaking these islands are quite young as we reckon that they are 30 million years old.
The dating of carbon traces back to the first settlements in 200 before J-C, but they might have been inhabited before that.
The origin of the first inhabitants, referring themselves to Guanches, remains the matter of theories.
We talk about Celtic or Nordic emigrants. However it is likely that the Berbers, coming from Africa the neighbour country, have been the first settlers.
The archipelago, off Morocco, consisting of seven major islands and six minor islands (the most important ones -Graciosa, Alegranza, Lobos – are located around Lanzarote) is expanding 450 km covering a total area of 7300 km².
For historical and political reasons, the Canary Islands are part of Spain, but geographers fasten it to Macaronesia, a region composed of by the volcanic archipelago gathering the Azores, Madeira and Cape Verde.
The landscape from a very uncommon volcanism, with various mountainous forms (caldrons, cones, “malpaises” which are kind of volcanic rock chaos, pipes etc…)
Geologically, the islands are made of lava and basalt with a fertile soil, especially generous after the rain which is becoming more and more uncommon.In Tenerife, the Teide is the highest mountain of Spain (3 718m).
Coasts are interrupted for the most part by wide sand beaches, protected by reefs, forelands and profound bays. However, we can find in some regions many cliffs and other abrupt zones like in Gran Canaria’s Western and Northern coasts.The weak rainfall and the islands’ own topography find some streams, but not any rivers.
A valid national ID (- 10 years) or a Passport. Arrecive is the capital of Lanzarote’s island.
Spanish but english and german is spoken in hotels & restaurants
No particular health recommendation is advised
- 1 hour all year long.
The Canary Islands are located in the middle of the Atlantic, swept away by “alizés” winds and exposed to the mild marine currents bathing their coasts.
The average temperature is 22° C (with little variations) except in the mountains where the temperature is lower. In summer, they seldom go beyond 31°C.
The Canary Islands are also an ecological treasure, more particularly for their flora.
You just need a driver’s license (French, Belgium) valid in the whole European Union.
