Famara is the perfect scenario for beginners just starting surf practise, but nearby, in Famara, there’s two spots, the “Muelle de Famara” and “San Juan”, where advanced surfers will find more extreme conditions. In fact, the breakers in San Juan host one of WQS’s phases. There you can find numerous specialised schools and shops.
Winter is the best season to surf, from November until the end of March, because at this stage, waves easily reach 1.5 to 4.5 of height. Due to the great climatic conditions all year long, water temperature is usually never under 19ºC, with an annual average of 22ºC. No other destination in Europe can offer such pleasant conditions to practise surf in high quality waves.
