Spain - Windsurfing in Fuerteventura, 1 week

This tour is for everyone who wants to windsurf. You do not need any previous experience or any particular fitness-level. All you need is to show up ready for sun, fun, the beach and a lot of windsurfing. On this windsurf holiday you can choose between course and/or equipment rental. You will be spending your days on the beach and your evenings in the Surf Hostel with the other participants.

Scholars have had a hard time coming to an agreement about what Fuerteventura actually means. Most can agree that “Fuerte” means “strong”, but when it comes to the word “Ventura” no one can agree whether or not it means “luck”, “wind” or “adventure”. Honestly, this distinction doesn’t really matter, because all three words are spot on.

Fuerteventura is the second largest of the Canary Islands is the island closest to the African coast (only around 100km). The island is not quite as crowded as many of neighboring islands and this is despite the fact that the island boasts some of the best beaches in Europe – which is of course very convenient when you are going on a windsurf holiday.

There is plenty of wind in Fuerteventura and that is exactly what makes this place a world famous windsurf spot. During this tour you will stay in the northernmost town, Corralejo, where the Surf Hostel is located. And you will be surfing at Flag Beach.
