Fuerteventura, also called the “Hawaii of Europe”, is, without any doubt, the best place to learn how to surf in Europe, but also a fantastic destination for those who already know how to surf and want to improve and enjoy the big variety of waves. But: Why is this island in the Atlantic Ocean the best spot to learn surfing? We give you 4 reasons out of question:
1. 150km coastline in all wind directions, providing waves for every level.
Fuerteventura, the 2nd largest island of the Canarian archipelago, offers us beautiful beaches with fine white sand and warm crystal -blue water. Thanks to it’s size you have a big choice of surf spots over all wind directions: powerful beach breaks in the West, a big variety of reef spots at the North Shore and when it´s windy or big you can always find good surf at the East coast. No matter where the waves or wind is coming from, you will always find a good surf spot for your level!
2. Fuerteventura has “the best climate of the world” all year.
Fuerteventura has the most hours of sun in Europe, and with an average air temperature of 25º C the winter doesn’t exist! The water is warmest in the fall, but never dives under 18º C, going for a bath in the ocean is a pleasure and you’ll only put a wetsuit on to protect against injuries, not against the cold. Fuerteventura has the perfect climate to spend the day on the beach and in the water.
3. We are just 3-4 hours away from all destinations in Europe.
With direct and cheap flights coming from all over Europe, it is easy to escape every now and then to come and enjoy the summer surf feeling!
