KITESURFING IN THE CANARY ISLANDS
Lanzarote and Fuerteventura located just off the west coast of Africa make up part of the Canary Islands Archipelago. The islands are famed for their pleasant subtropcial climate, seasonal trade winds, crystal clear waters and stark volcanic landscapes. Being only a 4 hour flight from most European cities it’s an ideal place to kick back, relax and learn how to kitesurf or improve your kiteboarding skills. From as early as March to late September the trade winds “Los Alisios” blow from the North East and the groundswells drop off providing a wide variety of kitesurfing conditions ideal for all levels of kitesurfers. For the rest of the year the islands still have good wind statistics and there are plenty of windy days to take a course and plenty of freeride and waveriding conditions for more advanced riders.
