In fact, it is considered as one of the best places in Europe for heavy, uncrowded, world class waves. No wonder why the Canary Islands are known as the Hawaii of Europe.
The best season for surfers goes from September to May, whereas summer trade winds transform Fuerteventura in the ideal playground for kitesurfers and windsurfers. The overall variety of excellent conditions depending on the time of the year, from super flat shallow lagoons to full on wave spots, make this island a perfect destination to learn or improve your surfing, kiting and windsurfing.
