Here are a few surf spots in the South of Tenerife
This spot never really gets crowded and is suitable for all surfers; beginners and pros. The waves are left- and right-handed.
The bottom is rocks and reef. The low tide during spring and summer is the best time for surfing. According to reports locals can get unfriendly sometimes as not everybody likes to share this incredible spot.
Excellent powerful right-handed waves for intermediate surfers. Don’t worry, there are also easier, less powerful left-handed waves. A very consistent spot, especially during spring and summer. There is a reef at the bottom, so you can go surfing regardless of the tide condition.
This spot is popular and can get crowded sometimes but its proximity to other similar incredible spots, such as La Izquierda and Billboards make it worth going there anyways.
This would be the closest surf hotspot to the climbing areas, there are several surf shops in the village where you can rent your board and the conditions tend to be right for those who are at a beginner or little experience level.
The village is thé best spot for all wind- and kitesurf fanatics, so yes you can, at some days, expect some heavy-duty wind here!
For surf lessons and rental we love the oldest surfshop of El Médano : Picacho Surfshop.
Fast, hollow challenging left on exposed South coast reef. Any kind of S swell N wind combo will work, providing it doesn’t get too big.
Tenerife offers unrivalled opportunities to blow out the cobwebs and experience a diversity of nature and terrain exclusive to the Canarian archipelago under blue skies and clean air.
