Bodyboarding in El Quemao

One of the best waves to do bodyboarding in the Canary Islands
Opposite the fishing village of La Santa, in the northwest of the island of Lanzarote is one of the best waves, not only in the Canary Islands, but also worldwide - El Quemao. Known also as the Pipeline Canario, its fantastic reputation means that several restaurants and places to stay have opened up as well as schools and bodyboarding shops in which to buy and hire equipment. Entry into the water is easily accessed from the village harbour.
A bodyboarding spot for experts opposite La Santa
The wave in El Quemao breaks on a shallow volcanic reef near the coast, generating a multitude of deep, fast tubes. In spite of breaking mainly from the left, its right break forms a perfect hollow tube which bodyboarders love. The E- SE winds and the north swell at full tide from the months of October to March provide the best conditions to do bodyboarding in a spot suitable for experts because of the high level of skill needed.

- 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.
