4 reasons for a Canary Surf Holiday

01

Year-round warm swell on the Canary Islands

The Canaries, a Spanish owned and influenced group of islands, offer up the best of both worlds; a European type experience which won't require you to step too far outside your cultural comfort zone while supplying one big bonus; pumping waves and relatively warm water. Surfing the waters of other European destinations in winter can be distinctly chilly and neoprene layered. However, these islands, lying off the North African coast, have all-year-round pleasant water temperatures and lots of sun – ideal for those fed up with risking frostbite while in search of winter waves.

02

The Canaries are perfect for surf beginners

Thanks to the widely offered surf coaching, Canary Island surf holidays are well suited to beginners and anyone who wants to improve their surf level. Intermediate and advanced surfers who like to get out and about, tap into the inside knowledge of local guides and try their hand at a range of different breaks, are also well catered for through guiding and spot transfer services

03

Surf and party in paradise

Our Canary Island surfing options are based in either Fuerteventura or Tenerife, with scenery full of dramatic lava-scapes and rugged mountains and cliffs. Fuerteventura, with its rich cultural heritage, has extensive sand dunes and lots of sandy beaches while Tenerife is sometimes referred to as the 'party island' due to its offerings of bars, clubs and lively nightlife centered around the dry south coast.

04

Find new friends on your surf holiday to the Canary Islands

The majority of the LUEX Canary Island surf trips are surf camp based which typically means fun, happening atmospheres and the chance to get to know some brand new surf buddies. Your accommodation here can be in villas, hostels, studios or apartments with the choice of shared or private room facilities in dorms or single/double/twin/triple rooms. There is always someone new to meet and somewhere fun to go.
