Windsurfing Fuerteventura

The Spots

FBC Fuerteventura is at the northern tip of the island on a huge stretch of Natural Reserve sand beach with dunes to the rear looking out towards Isla de Lobos and facing Lanzarote.

The wind at FBC Fuerteventura blows side shore from the left and increases through the day. The best windsurfing is to be had between May and August when the remains of the winter swells have died down giving way to flat water/chop sailing conditions. The bay is large and open with an unlimited outer sailing area and is protected by reefs at both ends. 200m offshore there is a deep water reef forming nice waves (up to 3m) in swell conditions. Excellent jumping is to be had, as well as a very smooth introduction for beginner waveriders. There are some reefs closer in but these can be sailed over. There can be some shore break, and in spring low tide the shoreline can become quite rocky. There is a sand launch area between two shallow reefs in front of the center. The conditions in March/April are wavier with the remains of the winter swells caused by depressions in the Atlantic. The wind is more unpredictable in the winter as trade winds move further south, but this is when the best waves can be enjoyed.

FBC Fuerteventura is a spot more suited to intermediate and advanced level windsurfers. In the summer months however, beginners are taken to Cotillo for lessons and practice. Here there is a protected double lagoon which is always super flat on the inside with very small chops on the outer lagoon. The water is clear and shallow (1m) and sandy bottom – the perfect learning environment.
