& Arrival

Tenerife offers a perfect blend of breathtaking nature, exciting activities, rich culture and beautiful beaches.

Interesting spots/trails

El Medano, in the southeast of Tenerife, is known for its constant and strong wind. The north-east trade wind blows here with almost one hundred percent certainty, especially in summer. But also during the winter half year you should not disregard Tenerife as a surf destination, because there are more than 300 windy days per year.

El Medano beach is made of smooth, fine-grained sand and slopes gently, so surfing shoes are not required. The area where you can stand extends for about 20 meters, and the enclosed bay is free of dangerous currents. The waves at El Medano are moderate with a moderate shorebreak and break across the wind direction into the bay. Crossing the wave is possible on a half-wind course. However, it is important to master the safe launch from the beach.

Packing list

Besides your swimwear you should take the following things with you for Tenerife surfing:
