Winter Surfing Trip. The cold will no longer be an excuse.


A surfing trip in the middle of winter? Well, maybe it’s a great opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. Escape from the bitter cold and enjoy surfing sessions in a spectacular setting.


Christmas is here, and with it, the cold. The water is getting colder and colder and with that drop in temperature, the desire to go surfing is diminishing. Feeling that chill on entering the water and watching all your body muscles get stiffer as you try to enjoy a “good” swim is commonplace at this time of year.


But what do those who don’t like the cold but love surfing do without the need to wear a super thick neoprene that limits all their movements? Well, we can either go without surfing (which will be quite frustrating if you really like surfing), or choose some warm destination where you can enjoy your surfing sessions without worrying about the winter cold.

Here we propose a surfing destination for those who want to escape from the cold and surf under the shining star.

Without a doubt, one of the best destinations for surfing in the middle of December is one of the 7 tourist jewels of surfing in the Canary Islands. Lanzarote, a Biosphere Reserve, the most northern and eastern island of the Canary archipelago, offers countless high-quality spots and waves where you can practice your favourite sport. Left and right hand waves break along the entire coast, offering different alternatives for all levels of surfing.

Situado en el municipio de Teguise, está en el noroeste de la isla. Casi solitaria, con su arena blanca, Famara es sin duda la playa por excelencia para el surf y donde se pueden encontrar diferentes picos a lo largo de un espectacular litoral de casi 6 km de longitud. Con el archipiélago “chinijo” al fondo, (La Graciosa, Alegranza y Montaña Clara) es el escenario perfecto para un baño épico.
