Best travel time

The surf camps are located on three of the Canary Islands - Fuerteventura, Tenerife and Gran Canaria. Due to the consistently mild temperatures, these islands are a popular surfing destination all year round. Advanced surfers should come to one of our surf camps in the Canary Islands from October to March as these months have consistent surfing conditions.

Air & water temperature

Due to the mild climate, the temperature on the Canary Islands is never less than 15°C, even in winter. In the hot summer months it can get up to 28°C. In the months of July, August and September you often feel like you are in the tropics because of the high humidity.

In the Canary Islands, the sea is warmest in the winter months. In December the water temperature can reach up to 24°C.

Wetsuit

Even in winter, a wetsuit with a thickness of 3/2 mm is sufficient. Between August and October you can even surf in board shorts or a neoprene shorty on the Canary Islands. It is best to wear booties on the reef breaks to protect yourself from the sharp volcanic rocks and sea urchins.

The Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are a real paradise: blue sea, white dunes - and only a four-hour flight from Germany! The islands are located in the middle of the Atlantic and not only enchant their visitors with an interesting and varied landscape, but also with consistently mild temperatures. The Canary Islands are also interesting because of their volcanic origin and the large number of plants. The endless sandy beaches, the turquoise waters and the wonderful weather are the main features of this surfing destination, which is often called "the Hawaii of Europe". The Canary Islands have this nickname because they have as much shoreline as the Hawaiian Islands. You'll find everything here - from perfect beach breaks and reefs to fast point breaks. And best of all: The Pure Surfcamps are open for you 365 days a year!

Among our worldwide surf camps, the Canary Islands are a perfect medium-haul destination for both summer and winter.

The selection of spots is simply huge. The Canary Islands offer the best conditions for learning to surf, whether for beginners or advanced surfers. You can surf the waves here all year round! On the Canary Islands you will find an infinite number of spots: the constant wind and the changing seabed constantly create a wide variety of waves, such as tubes, long, deep and shallow waves. The archipelago's geography means there are many beaches with offshore winds that are ideal for surfing. That is certainly the reason why the best surfers in the world are drawn to these shores - and not only when the annual world championships are held. Whether you want to start surfing or want to improve the technique of your favorite sport - you've come to the right place in the Canary Islands!

You can enjoy your time here and relax from the hustle and bustle of home. Everyone knows that the one important meal before surfing is breakfast, which is why surf camp Tenerife places special emphasis on it.

Our team (the Zirke family) will provide you with muesli, yoghurt, sausage, cheese and fresh fruit, bread and coffee, tea and everything a surfer's heart desires. The apartment is of course equipped with its own kitchen so that you can prepare your own meals. If you still prefer to go out to eat in the evening, you can go to the nearby restaurants and let yourself be spoiled with traditional dishes there. At Surfcamp Tenerife you can choose between two surf courses that differ in terms of duration. Both courses are taught by highly trained surf instructors in German, English or Spanish and are divided into a large practical and a slightly smaller theoretical part. Our surf guides know Tenerife very well and will always find a suitable surf spot for you. Tenerife is not only great for surfing, but also for hiking due to the Anaga mountains. There is also a newly created skate park with a quarter pipe, ledges and bowl right on the island.
