THE BIRTHPLACE OF CANARIAN SURFING

Situated off the west coast of Africa, the volcanic island of Gran Canaria is ideally located to recieve North Atlantic swells.

This combined with it’s “Eternal Spring” climate and relatively balmy water temps makes it an ideal destination for beginners and intermediate surfers especially when the bill chill hits the rest of Europe in winter.

The west coast is rumoured to have some epic waves and if you spend some time exploring the island you will score some good quality un-crowded waves.

The southern coast offers a complete contrast to the north and mainly comprises of mellow beach breaks.
