Bodyboarding at Bristol-Shooting Gallery

Bodyboarding in Bristol-Shooting Gallery, Bodyboarding spots in Fuerteventura

One of the best waves for bodyboarding near Corralejo

In the north of the island of Fuerteventura, ten minutes from the tourist resort of Corralejo, is the surf spot known as Bristol-Shooting Gallery. During the winter it offers some of the best waves for bodyboarding in the Canary Islands, as well as other water sports. Due to the quality of the conditions it is one of the most popular spots for bodyboarders, so it is advisable to get there early to enjoy the tranquillity of its waves. The spot is in a rugged area and there are no services nearby. On days when the waves are strong, take care in the water.

A perfect pristine tube in Fuerteventura

The wave at Shooting-Gallery Bristol breaks both ways, but the left is outstanding. The perfect crystalline tube is deservedly renowned amongst Canarian riders. The wave breaks on a volcanic reef and is very challenging on days with strong swell. The best conditions occur during the winter at high or mid-tide and with SW-SE-E winds and N-NE-NW swell, although there are waves all throughout the year. Entry to the water is simple and can be done from a few places. There is a short paddle to the line-up.
