WINDSURFING

Fuerteventura is also the European windsurfing mecca. In July and August, the island is frequently influenced by strong easterly winds that are channelled and accelerated by the topography of the island. It’s possible to windsurf anywhere on the coast, but these are the privileged spots:

  • Playa de Sotavento/Costa Calma/Paso del Risquo
  • Corralejo

Playa de Sotavento in the South

Starting in Costa Calma and spreading south for about 25km is the Playa de Sotavento, an ideal area for windsurfing and kitesurfing, for experts and beginners alike. The wind, when at its best, is offshore, coming from the Atlantic side and accelerated by the hills lying behind. During the months of July and August, it can easily blow 7 to 9 bft. The area itself is ideal for beginners, as the higher waters fill the lagoon and allow for waist deep, very flat waters, as they are protected from the waves by the long almost continuous sand bar. For the more advanced enthusiasts, the other side of the sand bar i.e. the open sea, can produce some nice waves for surfing and jumping. Playa de Sotavento is home to World Cup Kite and Windsurfing competitions

Corralejo in the North

These are the recommended sites for windsurfing in and around Corralejo:

Rocky Point/ Black Reef launch from the shore with sail sizes 5.9 to 5.0 with a light wind board.

It is possible to sail out to Lobos Island.
