One of Europe’s top surf spots
El Confital is regarded as one of Europe’s top waves and is north east Gran Canaria and within the capital city of Palmas de Gran Canaria. Its long, right break is fantastic for accomplished surfers. The spot links to the city via a walkway popular with locals and visitors and is accessible on foot and by car. The El Confital break has hosted world class surfing events such as the ASP WQS and the Red Bull Rival.
Tubing waves within Gran Canaria’s capital city
The El Confital spot breaks to the right over a volcanic ledge and its tube runs the length of the break in very shallow water. The drop in is vertical, almost aerial and the wave has a strong Take Off. Although the spot is consistent throughout the year the best conditions are between September and May at high tide, with the winds E-NE and the swell swell N-NW-W. There are several entry points although care is required on big wave days as the water pushes you towards the rocks.
