It has to be Windwise in El Medano Tenerife!

El Medano is best visited by those who can waterstart efficiently, sail a sub 120L board and are looking to break that blast and gybe plateau. In the South Bay where the TWS centre is based we get a mix of flat water blasting, bump and jump and rolling swell, which develops your control, transition ability and short board confidence. If you venture upwind to the 'harbour wall (optional) 'you'll get a nice little point break to ease you into very easy wave riding. For the more adventurous you can commute further up to Cabezo Beach, which has hosted many world cup wave events.

We are now fully sold out for Feb 2017

Windsurfing In El Medano, Tenerife

Tenerife is one of the more popular islands in the Canary Islands for windsurfing and we're looking at a last minute trip to escape the winter! We will base ourselves in El Medano, which is a fabulous windsurfing location on the southern tip of the island. It's a huge windsurfing beach which is famous for flat water on the inside, rolling swell out back and two optional wave breaks - The 'Harbour Wall' an easy intro to waves & El Cazebo where world cup wave events have been held. We will be operating out of TWS Centre which is based in the best part of the beach and is stacked to the roof with kit for you to use!

Blasting in the bay is a mix of flat water and rolling swell!

El Medano offers a perfect mix of flat water, rolling swell and waves, so expect a destination that will offer real variety. It's a good place for an introduction to waves, launching through small waves and moving your windsurfing on to another level. Winter is not the Canaries windiest time, but it does offer a decent option for a winter escape and Tenerife has a history of being one of the best Canary Islands in February with regards to wind. Simon Bornhoft used to test for Boards Magazine in El Medano every Feb for over 10 years, so know's the place well and feel's it a good alternative to Egypt and much cheaper than traveling to the Caribbean in UK winter time. 

Off the water you'll get a taste sensation with fresh fish, endless tapas and of course that apres windsurfing Dorado beer, plus the renowned WINDWISE socials, location guiding and adventures.
