Located in the path of the regular north-eastern trade winds, Fuerteventura offers perfect wind conditions for windsurfing and kiteboarding all year round. Weather: The average air temperature sits around 20°C year round, with little variation between summer (24°C) and winter (18°C), making Fuerteventura a perfect all year round beach and holiday destination with more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Wind conditions: Fuerteventura offers regular winds between 15-30 knots the whole year with the exception of the autumn months (September- November) where the wind dies down slightly before coming back full force in the winter. During the winter months on the East coast spots, the wind speeds vary. We recommend having a range of kites between 8-12m. The wind speeds on the West coast are very similar to the East, though can sometimes be gusty. In summer on both East and West coasts are windy enough for 7-8 m kites. Overall we recommend to have a 7, 9 and 12 to be fully covered. Water conditions: East coast: flat or small waves West Coast: Choppy and Big waves.
Fuerteventura and other Canary islands have been called "The Islands of Eternal Spring" because of their pleasant weather throughout the year. However, with more than 300 days of sunshine per year and extremely low precipitation level, Fuerteventura climate is unique and unlike the weather conditions of the rest of the Canary archipelago. You will be situated in a remote and calm area far from the masses. At the same time you will not be far from hospitals, pharmacies, airports, supermarkets, nightlife and shopping centers. Although we are closer to the African continent than to Europe, the Canary Islands belong to Europe and all sovereign rights and services are assured like if you were in mainland Europe. There are no health hazards regarding water or food, nor terrorism, nor of any other kind. There are approximately 103,000 inhabitants on 1660km2. Most of the island is untouched and wild...but safe. The other islands to visit are similar with very scattered population. The food Mediterranean style: very healthy, low in fat and rich in vitamins and proteins. Lots of fish, tomatoes, lettuce, olive oil, goat cheese, potatoes. You can also find fabulous steaks imported from Mainland Spain for very cheap prices. Local white wines are world recognised for its quality and we highly recommend you try them.
On the first night we will sleep in the Caleta Fuste marina. Here we will get together in a fantastic local restaurant to plan the coming week.
The plan for the week will depend on your kitesurf experience and wishes, weather forecasts and wave tides. We will choose the best areas to make the most enjoyable and unforgettable week of kitesurf holidays with friends or family.
