Bodyboarding at El Frontón

One of the world’s best bodyboard waves in Gran Canaria
The El Frontón spot on the north east coast of Gran Canaria is one of the world’s best bodyboarding breaks and was chosen by bodyboard pros as the fifth best wave in the world. Access is via the seaside village of Caleta de Arriba and through a labyrinth of banana plantations, followed by a steep but walkable cliff. You can park right by the break or walk in from nearby Agujero beach but caution is required due to the constant pounding surf in the area.
A spot for radical maneuvers close to Caleta de Arriba
El Frontón is so powerful that it’s often compared to Teahupoo. When the wave breaks over the lava bottom it forms a powerful tube that breaks left and right. It requires experience and guts on big days but rewards you with the chance to do jumps and radical maneuvers. Access to the break is relatively simple as you can walk out to the edge of the reef, watching out for waves. El Frontón is consistent throughout the year at high tide and SE- SW-E winds and W-NW-N-SW swell but the biggest waves roll i between October and May.

- 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.
