Windsurfing & Kitesurfing

Gran Canaria Windsurfing

Gran Canaria offers windsurfing holidays with a combination of conditions – flat water conditions and lighter winds at Bahia Feliz and choice of high wind locations for advanced windsurfers.

Pozo Izquierdo, located in the municipality of Santa Lucía, is Spain’s most widely known windsurfing spot internationally. Gran Canaria has become the home of the international windsurfing elite over the last few years. There is a beach with outstanding conditions for practising the sport, where it seems the wind has taken up permanent residence, just like big names in windsurfing such as the greatest, Björn Dunkerbeck, who has taken up residence in Pozo, and who learnt his craft on the beaches of Gran Canaria before developing into the world champion.
On the “Arenal” (the name given to the beach by locals), the wind blows in from the left and tends to be very strong, for which reason sails of 2, 8, and 4 metres in height are necessary to enjoy one of the worlds’ windiest spots.

The waves on average don’t fall below a metre in height, and sometimes they reach 3 metres. Pozo Izquierdo is the perfect destination for all those with an acceptable level of gliding and gybing ability, who want to begin somersaulting or practising other delicate manoeuvres.

Kitesurfing in Gran Canaria

The south and southeast of the island are ideal for wind and kite sports, with a steady wind racing over the sea throughout the year.
Trade Winds are simply the best! This is the first thing that comes to mind when you reach Grand Canaria to enjoy kite surfing.
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.

Club Mistral Centre

Located directly behind the glorious Bay of Bahia Feliz, which is adjoined by a holiday resort in a garden that is more like a park. In winter, Bahia Feliz is one of the best spots on the Canary Islands.
