WHO WILL THE CANARY ISLANDS APPEAL TO?

The strength and consistency of the wind, the pleasant climate all year round, excellent tourist facilities and short flights times from most European cities combine to make the Canary Islands a suitable destination for all levels of windsurfers all year round.

The NE trade winds blow throughout the year, although they tend to move up & down the Atlantic.The best time to visit the Canary Islands is during the summer which is the windy period. In summer the sea tends to be flat and the wind at its most consistent. The trades can start to blow as early as March and you have wind until November.

Around Lanzarote and Fuerteventura you have wind acceleration zones where the wind is either funnelled between mountains, or the other islands and where the wind can sometimes increase to as much as 8 – 9 Bft. Beginners can learn to windsurf all year round as there is usually enough wind even in winter to run newbie and beginner courses.
