Trade wind zone Gran Canaria

The Canary islands are awesome for windsurfing. It doesn’t matter what time of the year I travelled there. The wind was on in December, the wind was on in March, the wind was on in May. And no comment about the wind during the summer months, when the trade winds are on day by day with an average 20 to 45 knots.

This time it’s February 2014 and the trades are on almost every day. Had a few great Slalom sessions plus an excellent day on 4,2 in Pozo’s waves since the arrival on the February 9th. Actually a storm front has arrived on the Canaries and it looks promising for another wave session. And if there are days without any wind for my 107/7,8 combo there are so many places to discover: beautiful trails for hiking, waves for surfing, local gardens to visit or relaxed tapas bars next to the shore.
