Surf trip Gran Canaria: enjoy the Gran Canaria surf guide, surf trips on Canary Islands and discover the best surfspots in Gran Canaria

Gran Canaria is the less known of the Canary Islands for surfing. Unfortunately or maybe fortunately the island has unjustified the bad reputation that there would be just small waves with low quality. The touristic south dims the several great opportunities of Gran Canaria. An island with more than 100 waves, short distances between spots, without extreme localism and less surf tourism. The less known and for most first choice when it comes to relaxed surfing at the Canary Islands.


For whom are the surf trips Gran Canaria designed for?

For all surfers who aren’t beginners and who dispose of the skills and physical stamina to surf independently. It is the best option for those who want to discover the island and surf the variety of waves in Gran Canaria. The transfer to the surf spots is included, which conforms best to your skill level and your wishes. Gran Canaria disposes of more than 100 waves and we will find the best ones for you, no matter if you are a surfer, longboarder or bodyboarder. If you don’t want to loose time and you want to enjoy your surf trip as well as possible, this would be the right choice for you.

Where do we surf? Which surf spots do we have?
The internet is certainly not the right place to reveal the secrets of the island. In dependence of the swell we check the conditions daily to choose the best spots with optimal tide. The island Gran Canaria offers waves in a high rate and variety of waves compared to Teneriffa, Lanzarote or Fuerteventura and at the same time it has just a few crowds in the water. There is always a spot where your dream wave breaks. Right at your arrival we’ll give you a Map we created by ourselves about the different waves of Gran Canaria. We gathered the best-known surf spots of the north and south coast for you.

What does the surf trip include?
The transfer is included. You will surf about 2/3 hours per session, depending on your physical and the meteorological conditions. The sessions can be extend or shortened according to your pleasure and stamina.

Should I take equipment with me?
It is recommendable to take your own equipment with you, because it’s always better if the surfer is already familiarized with the material he/she will be working with. If you prefer to travel with few luggage as possible, there is always the possibility to use the material from the surf camp. We have Bic 7’3”, Evolutionboards 6’10” and Shortboards 6’0”, 6’2” and 6’4”. We also have several wetsuits.

In which season of the year the conditions are the best to surf on Gran Canaria?

Gran Canaria offers good conditions to surf at all 356 days of the year.

Autumn and winter are the periods of the year with less on-shore wind. The best wetsuit for autumn is a Shorty or a Lycra with bathing clothes and for winter a long 3/2mm wetsuit. In winter we surf mostly on the north and south coast. For small and consistent waves is the central section of the north coast the best choice. When the waves get over a height of 3-4 meters, the waves of the south are good to ride on.

The spring offers a less consisting swell and the waves are smaller, but because of the tide not less good. Furthermore the breaks of the north work and at times, depending on the tides, also the ones of the east coast. In this season of the year the water is warmer. A wetsuit is recommendable but a Shorty 2/2 is largely enough.

The summer: Also in the summer, Gran Canaria offers high quality waves in the north of the island. And in comparison to Fuerteventura or Lanzarote better waves for this season. The north and northeast coast are the best for consistent surfing conditions and the conditions of the wind are always acceptable. The swell is softer and the beaches get filled with sand, so the spots become beautiful beaches with an easy way to the line-up. During summer the waves of the east are great to ride. These waves break over a ground of stones. Normal bathing cloths and a Lycra will be all you need.
