Canary Islands

Head to the Canary Islands for a quick flight to your next water sports holiday. With a choice of windsurfing, kitesurfing, surfing, SUP and scuba diving you can maximise your time on and in the water. Sportif recommend Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria and Costa Teguise and Famara in Lanzarote as the best locations to enjoy your sport. Each Canary Island offers slightly different, Atlantic sea conditions influenced by their location off the west coast of North Africa.These historic volcanic islands basking in year round sunshine and water time. Each island has a distinct characte, on the same latitude as the Sahara and Red Sea but are further south than Florida with incredible beaches.

The temperatures are reliably good all year, peaking in July to September at 88F or 30C. The sea conditions vary from one island to another and, between venues on each island, different conditions are available according to your preference or ability. It is possible to go from radical wave sailing in one area to flat water ‘blasting’ in another on the same day. The islands are blessed with a constant supply of wind, thereby making them the ideal choice for all year round windsurfing and kitesurfing. Enjoy the endless stretches of pure golden sand lapped by azure water making the perfect backdrop to your sailing dream, year round.
