Trip: Tenerife Springtime

Surf trip description:

First we were scheduling to visit Morocco for the umpteenth time. But while looking for flight and accommodation at the web my wife remembered an offer of a friend to have a private appartement on the north coast of Tenerife. Well, we never been to the Canaries so the decision was easy: One phone call to check the appartement and a couple of mouseclicks to book a flight and rental car on the island of the sempiternal Springtime. Condor airline charges 25 Euros per way for the board on short+medium distances and the check in is very easy. 4.5 hours flight from Frankfurt and we stepped out from this endless Winter into never ending Spring. On Tenerife, particularly at the north coast it almost never gets more than 25°C airtemps at Summer and less than 15°C during Winter. Water ranges from 18-22°C so this is what I call a "Year-Round" destination. Surf is higher from September to April, May to August can get flat but has also significant swell.
A view steps from the airport we picked up our car with luggage rack, fixed the travelcase on it and one hour later we arrived at Icod De Los Vinos in the middle of the north shore, 20kms from Puerto De La Cruz.

There are many places to see on Tenerife so we did tours to all highlights.

Surf spot: El Medano, Canary Islands

Surf Trip: Tenerife Springtime ( 15 March 2010 - 31 March 2010)

Description:

Playa de las Tejitas is just around the corner from the interntl. airport and was the last chance to catch a wave before leaving back home. Unfortunately the swell is often small and the wind is very strong. No wonder that sails and kites are predominant here.

Session: First Wave at Tenerife

Written by herwig show herwig profile

Surf spot: Playa socorro, Canary Islands

Surf Trip: Tenerife Springtime ( 15 March 2010 - 31 March 2010)

Description:

First time out at Tenerife. The spot is the nearest surfable wave from our appartement, so it was obvious to check there first. What we saw was not funny: The heavy rainfall during February 2010 had loosen big rocks from the cliff and danger of landslide disposed the municipal authority to close the beach to public. Anyway, all fishers and surfers climbed around the fence and went down surfing, so I did the same.
