Tenerife is the perfect island for surfing. There are a number of spots where you can surf all year round.
The Atlantic low pressures systems in the region during winter (October-April) and the influence of the trade winds in summer (May-September) make Tenerife the ideal destination for surfers of all disciplines.
The waves break over different types of ocean floors:
- Rocks and sand
- Volcanic reef
Waves that break over sand and rock floors usually make for more accessible breakers that are suitable for beginners and intermediate surfers. Volcanic reefs are more difficult, meaning they are best for surfers who have perfected their technique.
The water temperature ranges from 19°C in winter to 26°C in summer (66 to 79°F).
