Add a New Surf SpotRegional Overview
The wild west of surfing, closer to Africa than Europe and with a bathymetry similar to Hawaii. The Canary Islands' breaks are famed for being shallow, heavy and hollow over urchin covered reefs. However more relaxed beach breaks do exist. By the time open ocean swell reaches the islands the winds which produced them have long died away offering the possibility of clean, long period swells. Unfortunately the islands are also plagued by north-easterly trade winds which can easily blow out the dominant north-westerly swells. Surfing arrived relatively recently to this archipelago and only really took off the the 1990s. Despite having a reputation for localism it is possible to find quiet waves, especially if you explore a bit and show respect.
