General Information

Long walling left breaking over shallow lava reef. Steep take-offs and workable walls are the order of the day. Always busy and locals aren't always friendly!

This is South Bay, El Medano, Tenerife. See also El Cabezo.

Windsurfing

Two main launch areas - Cabezo beach in North Bay, and South Bay. Folk also windsurf off the harbour wall, which can be reached from either. Two excellent hire centers in South Bay. http://www.otc-windsurf.com/ offers a wide choice of kit. http://www.surfcenter.el-medano.com/ offers Naish kit. http://www.cabezosurfshop.com/ sells windsurf kit and spares.

Conditions immensely variable, from light wind to gale force winds. Significant chop, waves, and shorebreak. Warm water, year round. Limited emergency rescue cover.

July/August has the best wind. September/October winds are light. December to March is a good time for a winter holiday.

I am a regular visitor. More information on my website at http://www.windsurfnow.co.uk/tenerife/ . No longer a small fishing village, lots of restaurants, accommodation and supermarkets.
