Just follow the main road of tenerife wich is very easy because there is just one highway. Leave the T1 when you see the signs for El Medano and follow the signs into el medano village and then is just a short distance till the place to be.

The spot is pretty ok for every kind of skill. Just for beginners is a second bay with little waves and a clear beach without rocks where its easy to learn everything.In the main bay its also easy to learn but you must be carefull for the rocks.The main bay can be split in two places to be. One is nearby the Atlantic Playa Hotel where the sea is mostly flat with small till moderate waves and you have the other side nearby medano beach where you can ride the nice and big waves and have the most beautiful jumps.But be carefull because of the rocks!!! There are some places where you have to stay out because of rocks just below the water surface and you will damage your equipement for sure.
It's easy to park your car in a very small distance to the spott. There is enough place.
When you've been in El Medano you will never think about something else. It's just perfect in many way's with everything around you to get your mental drug on the water and also on the main land. Some nice bars in El Medano village, for example the Cocktail Bar, the hottest bar in town where the serve the most tastfull cocktail wich can make you very drunk.....
Super spott!!!! hang loose!!!!

WindSurf in El Medano - While I'm there (29.01-03.02.2010), I'd love to windsurf.
Any tips? renting a board? or maybe to borrow (let's make a deal).

go to las galletas - Nice spot to body board is Las Galletas in the south of the island, see the spot map. With good south swell the waves can reach hights between 2 and 3 meter in summer.
