Surf, Windsurf and Kitesurf

Kite surfing in Gran Canaria

Trade Winds are simply the best!

This is the first thing that comes to mind when you reach Grand Canaria to enjoy kite surfing. The island gathers more and more enthusiasts each season, for it has all the conditions required thanks to the trade winds present most of the year. These winds are the ones to blame for the fine weather enjoyed in Gran Canaria practically all twelve months.

But it is not just a matter of fine weather and fair winds. The island also offers different spots to meet your fancy. Golden or volcanic sand beaches. Areas far from the coastline. Lots of places for every level.

If you wish to see the best kiters in action, try Vargas in the south of the island. Not a beach for the uninitiated, but radical territory. Hard terrain, but the chosen spot for seasoned veterans.

The quality of the wind in Punta de Maspalomas, also in the southern area, gathers groups of kiters on occasions, with an unparalleled background of sand dunes. Las Burras, not far from Playa del Águila y Playa del Tarajalillo, is yet another hot spot in Gran Canaria, where kiters and windsurfers blend in their search for fine weather and fair winds.

Tumbling and flying. In Gran Canaria, vacation time flies, especially on a kite. So when you are back at the office, you’ll just say ‘I’m back. Time flies!’
