YEAR ROUND WIND, WAVES & SUN
Top Of The Line Equipment Teamed With Pro Coaching, Make This Your Best Kitesurf Trip Ever
Tenerife benefits from year round NE trade winds that accelerate around Mount Teide. This gives El Medano over 260 days of 4 force and over wind each year. The wind blows cross onshore, providing port tack jumping and starboard tack wave riding. The most consistent months for wind are during Summer, bringing 25-30 knot averages. During Spring, Autumn it is slightly less consistent but it is still very rare to have a week without wind strong enough for kiting. In Winter it does blow regularly but with a larger wind strength range, from 15 knots to storm days up to 45 knots.
The waves in El Medano are mostly wind blown swell (with the occasional ground swell, which tend to happen more frequently in winter) so build up over a windy period but break quite gently and are rarely over logo high in the bay.
El Medano has 2 main kiting spots: El Medano Bay, where most of the centers are located has the easiest sailing, with a sandy launch and the smallest waves. The Harbour Wall, is just a couple tacks upwind from the centre, here waves break on the end of a rock reef leaving an easy channel to sail back out, it works at low tide and is a great place to improve your wave riding.
Tenerife does not just boast all year wind but year round sun as well. During the summer daytime temperatures are around 30 degrees and you only need shorts or at most a shorty on the water. Winter daytime temperature is still around 20-25 degrees but you need at least a summer long suit on the water and the temperature drops considerably at night so jeans and a hoodie are essential items to pack.
El Medano offers something for every level, with a large sandy beach giving plenty of space for beginners to learn to fly the kite and a safe enclosed bay. El Medano also provides the option of different sailing areas for more advanced kiters. Twintip boards are used in the bay for the bump and jump conditions and strapless at the harbour wall to enjoy wave riding.
