A Perfect Place for Surfing

Have you already had your aquatic baptism?

To relax by the sea, or to walk along more than 12 kilometres of the coast isn't the only attraction of Gran Canaria's beautiful beaches. Since many years ago, water sports have turned into a big attraction of the island, thanks to a perfect temperature during the whole year and gusts of wind that allow for an unbeatable practice of specialties like surfing, windsurfing, bodyboarding, and for the most adventurous - kitesurfing, which has many followers. Athletes from all over Europe come here occasionally because they are attracted to this natural paradise. And don't worry if you have never ridden the waves because there are academies that offer courses for beginners, as well as shops just about on every beach for renting equipment. Naturally, there are areas in Vargas and Pozo Izquierdo, which are the most recommended for practicing your aquatic baptism.
