Come and discover the surf in Fuerteventura, also known as the European Hawaii! The island offers extraordinary surf conditions and warm temperatures all year round. Fuerteventura’s amazing surf conditions attract each year surfers from all around the world and they make the island one of the most popular surf destinations in Europe.
In the north of Fuerteventura, you find a great variety of beach and reef breaks. The over 30 spots in the area are distributed on three different coastlines, all reachable within 5 to 20 driving minutes from our Surf Camp in Corralejo: the east coast, north shore and the west coast. The spots on these coasts are all working with different swell and wind directions which means that there is always a wave to surf.
You can find all from beginner friendly waves to learn to challenging waves for advanced level only. So whether you are beginner, intermediate or an advanced surfer, Fuerteventura is the ideal surf destination for all levels!
The main season to surf in Fuerteventura is from mid September until mid April. Around that time of the year, the reef breaks of Fuerteventura’s north shore are firing. For an advanced surfer seeking barrels, this is the best time of the year to visit but even though swells are bigger in autumn and winter, the surf in Fuerteventura is consistent all year round! Good waves can be found throughout the year, no matter when you visit.
A great thing about surfing in Fuerteventura is the warm temperature all year round. Whereas in winter, it is pretty freezing in most of the surf destinations around Europe, the average daily temperature in Fuerteventura is around 20°c (can get up to 24°c). The average water temperature in winter and spring is around 19° so a long 3/2 wetsuit is enough. In summer and early autumn you can surf in board shorts, swimsuit or short wetsuit, the water is around 22°c during that time of the year.
