Why surf in El Medano?
The beaches of El Medano are perfect to start catching waves or improve your technique. The beach just in front of the school is sandy, so if we fall we won’t get hurt. Also, depending on your level, we adapt to perfect the technique or start from scratch and for this we have boards of all kinds: the foam boards (also called cork), have a lot of volume and are soft, so standing up is very easy; we also have epoxy top boards. While surf in El Médano, as a backdrop, if we look to the sea, we see Montaña Roja, one of the emblems of the coastal city and if we look to land we can contemplate the different coves of the city.
We are located at Paseo Mercedes de la Roja, 34. Right on the main avenue.
