Stormrider Description
Stormrider Logo
Research by Siracusa University (EEUU) describes Las Palmas de Gran Canaria as the city with the best weather in the world and the island displays both sub tropical and arid landscapes that typify the island chain. Gran CanariaÕs most popular surfing area is Las Canteras with a variety of beach and reefbreaks, from El Confital to El Lloret. Countless spots can be seen along the north shore but many of them are dangerous and have difficult access like the slab reefs around Galdar. This coast is a swell magnet and can pick up small summer swells at beaches like Los Enanos, El Roque and Vagabundos. The west coast is a wall of sea cliffs so surf spots are almost non-existent. Tauro, Arguineguin and Maspalomas are the best spots in the south, working on large W swells, but this area is nowhere near as consistent as the north. The east coast breaks receive swell all year round and offers many good quality spots, including La Izquierda del Muelle, which works in the dominant NE winds. Autumn and winter is the best season for travelling to Gran Canaria but there can be waves on any of the coasts at any time of year.
