    Not really my scene but I think you’ll need to go to the other side of the island i.e. the West to catch the big waves.

    Met a young guy last year who was a keen surfer and he went to Famara where he sid the surf was great.

    Hope this helps.

    it is possible to body board in las cucharas in costa,my boys have been over the last month,waves are better on a windy day!

    Hi,,, I think kates suggestion of curcharas maybe the better option .. Famara is great, but offshore there are some quite dangerous cross currents which can very quickly get you into a whole lot of trouble. . I know bathers there always have to be very careful.

    Its not my scene either, but another off the wall suggestion maybe for one day to get the ferry across to fuerteventura and try the beaches where they hold the world wind surfing championships most years ? ? Just an idea.

    If its windy, you might have nice shorebreak waves at the main beach Playa de Las Cucharas, otherwise the best beach spot for this is without doubts Famara beach (20 min by car). Be careful with the strong currrents at Famara.
