Canary Islands, Spain

Tenerife in Canary islands Spain has some excellent waves as indeed does the whole of the Canaries, they call it the Hawaii of Europe. La Derecha in Tenerife wasn’t far from little village Tijoco Bajo where we lived, so I surfed there most of the time (we spent 16 months there)…

Water temperatures are warm similar to the Gold Coast in Australia, sunny most of the year. Excellent local surfers, friendly but can be territorial if provoked. Food… beautiful ! Lots of different of varieties. Great to have a siesta in the afternoons (I like them). The local people have small breakfast, huge lunch and a late tea. Fascinating coastline and history in the Canaries, well-worth a visit!
