Bodyboarding at El Confital

The best right-hand bodyboarding wave in Europe
The El Confital wave is regarded as the best right breaking wave in Europe for bodyboarders. It’s located just north of Las Canteras beach in the north east of Gran Canaria, making it an urban wave with easy access. Located in a pristine natural area with small sandy coves and a lava rock coastline, El Confital is connected to Las Palmas de Gran Canaria by a busy pathway popular with surfers and sunset watchers.
A powerful tubing spot close to Las Canteras
The El Confital spot is perfect for pro-standard bodyboarding. A vast lava reef lifts the wave far from the shore and it breaks to the right with a huge vertical face and forms fast, powerful tubes. At low tide, with E-NE winds and N-N-W swell it reaches three metres. The break is at its biggest and best between September and May. Access is via the reef but on big days there’s a corridor with a sand bottom in the middle of the reef that is safer.

- Never leave waste of any type lying around, including cigarette butts. Leftover food leads to a proliferation of rats and wild cats, which pose a serious threat to the fauna.
- Do not throw any waste or other objects into the sea.
- Respect the animals. Do not bother them or feed them. If you see an injured specimen, you can call the emergency number: 112. Do not pick flowers or plants.
- Do not pick up or take away stones or any other item from the natural environment. And do not move them to pile them up into sadly famous 'towers'.
- Try to use ocean- friendly sun creams.
