Fuerteventura is surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing capital of Europe. It all happens in the Corralejo area, the north of Fuerteventura. And guess what, the house you are looking at is right on the beach looking at Rocky point and the world famous Lobos breaks. You cannot be closer to the action than this.
Wind Surfsplots explained
As it is true for surfing, Fuerteventura is also windsurfing's european Hawaii. In the summer months, the island is constantly battered y strong easterly winds, which, in the south, are accelerated due to the venturi and thermal effect of the numerous hills. One can windsurf and kitesurf anywhere on the island, but there are privileged spots:
Our favorite spots around Corralejo include:
Right in front of our house.
During summer months, it is possible to launch in front of our houses almostevery day. Sail sizes range from 5.9 to 5.0, we usually use a lightwind board to cruise around, do freestyle moves or visit Lobos.
Glassbeach (El Burro)
When the northeast wind blows, Glassbeach is an excellent wave sailing spot,but very, very crowded. Parking is a bit strange; watch out for burying your car in the sand. Sail size 5.4 - 4.2, wave boards.
At the Flagbeach Wind and Kite surfcentre, wind is usually cross-shore from the left. In wintertime massive waves break in the channel and provide an excellent "nature experience". Also a very good place to rent a board, kitesurfer or boogy board.
When there's low winds in Corralejo, chances are you can sail at the beaches to the left of the village of el Cotillo. Winds pick up at the end of the day. You can sail at any place on the long sand beach there. Sail size 5.4 - 4.2, wave boards, freestyle
Located on the dirttrack 15 minutes from the lighthouse on the north-shore. Bring your booties. Good wavespot with wind from the right. At low tide pretty dangerous. Sail size 5.4- 4.2, wave boards.
