Tenerife Provides Great Surfing Opportunities for Everyone
In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, few locations are better for the adrenaline-fuelled sport than the Canary Islands. That is why surfing in Tenerife is such a popular pastime for both seasonal surfers as well as beginners. Watersports of all kinds are enjoyed on the island but surfing is among the most popular, and it is something that both tourists and locals take part in. Given the volcanic nature of how Tenerife came to form, it has some stunning reefs that cause exciting waves to form. Its exposed position means that high winds can often augment them making it a surfing paradise. Moreover, with more than half of Tenerife having protected status, you can rest assured that your time spent here will not burden the landscape. Why not give it a go?
Learn How to Surf in a Location Suited for It
No surfing school in Tenerife won't throw you in at the deep end without some essential tuition. For beginners, this means learning how to hop onto your board while you’re still on the beach. As such, surfing at Playa las Americas, Costa Adeje or any other beach on the island, means getting to know the techniques that you'll use in the water later. Once novices have mastered that, tuition begins in the sea with help and guidance from trained professionals. Thankfully, surfing experts tend to be multilingual because they teach visitors from all over Europe and English is often spoken. Expect to go from a complete novice to riding modest waves within a few hours. Intermediate-level surfers will be able to progress to larger waves. Surfing in southern Tenerife is suited for all levels of surfers due to the type of reefs surrounding the island. It is also a great way to see the island as it protrudes from the sea.
Why Surfing in Tenerife is for Everyone?
Because it has waters that are so varied depending on the time of day, the direction of the tide and the prevailing wind, surfing in Tenerife means being able to keep a group with differing skill levels occupied and fully engaged. Tutors pick up participants from their accommodation and transport them to a suitable location for the day. All that is needed is the ability to swim in the sea and the determination to succeed in what is a highly rewarding watersport. Even children aged 12 and over can take part, if accompanied by a responsible adult. The surf school will provide all of the equipment needed on arrival for their class of surfing. Surfing in Tenerife means remembering to pack a swimming costume, a towel and something cosy to wrap up in at the end of the day. Of course, sunglasses, sunblock and a sun hat are advisable too, since we are close to the equator. Surfing tutors will provide refreshments, and the activity is insured which means future surfers can throw themselves into it with complete peace of mind.
Surfing is fun, energetic and something anyone can try their hand at. Even better, Tenerife is an ideal place to learn how to do it when on holiday.
