7 Best Tenerife Windsurf Schools in El Médano

First things first: what is windsurfing?

Let´s say that if you´re looking for an activity to do when the waves are flat, windsurfing can be a great option. In fact, it has the potential to be enjoyed in harps and lakes without requiring surf-like conditions, which is simply amazing! 

In simple terms, it can be defined as a meeting point between surfing and sailing: performed on a sailboard, its purpose is to harness the power of the wind to gain speed on the water. Specifically, windsurfing can take on different nuances, and based on these, the type of board used also changes. To give a concrete example, speed and wave windsurfers typically use smaller and lighter boards while beginners or some freestyle users need a heavier board.

 Instead, as far as the choice of sails is concerned, it depends on the wind speed at which you want to use them: in heavier winds, smaller sails are used. Conversely, larger sails are used in lighter winds because of their wider extremities, which makes it easier to catch them. 

Even though equipment advancements over the past few decades have made it a much easier sport to participate in, windsurfing is definitely a challenging activity, as it requires both physical and mental abilities, like sharpness and balance. 

As for surfing, Costa Adeje offers great opportunities for those who want to dedicate themselves to this sport. Let´s find out together which are the best windsurfing schools in one of the most spectacular spots in the south of the Island, El Médano.
