Windsurfing, the main sport in Fuerteventura, is available to anyone regardless of their level of ability. Many windsurfers take their holidays in Fuerteventura each year, taking advantage of the superb climate. With clear and warm ocean waters and strong winds from the Atlantic, the island offers ideal conditions for any windsurfing wanting to practise their skill. For those who think this sport is beyond them, it is easily mastered within a day’s instruction given by one of the experts based at the many wind surfing centres.

The island’s centres also offer a good range of essential equipment to suit all levels. With ever constant tradewinds throughout the summer months and large swells in the winter, it is easy to see why this island has become a must-visit on the surfing calendar. Surfers can also choose from among a number of good spots, depending on ability. For experts seeking out rocky reefs, local advice is essential.

For the beginner surfer, there is a wide choice of where to learn to windsurf and also several operators offering private lessons or intensive courses. There are frequently trainee windsurfers to be found practising in the cove at Caleta de Fuste.

For the more experienced surfer, there are a good number of locations on Fuerteventura such as Corralejo bay, which are easily accessible. Surfers can also take in the views of Lobos and Lanzarote from Corralejo, which are superb. Located on the western side of the island, surfers will find stronger waves. However, this is not suitable for anyone on beginner level.
