Our Windwise Freewave session El Medano is best for those who can waterstart, sail a sub 120L board and are looking to break that blast and gybe plateau. In the South Bay where the TWS centre is based we get a mix of flat water blasting, easy bump and jump and rolling swell. If you venture upwind to the 'harbour wall (optional) 'you'll get a nice little reef break to ease you into very accessible waves when the swell is up. For the more adventurous you can commute further up to Cabezo Beach, which has hosted many world cup wave events.

If you can waterstart a sub 120L board you can sail El Medano!

Perfect place to break away from just blasting and trying to gybe!

We focus on your windsurfing, but other activities for lighter wind days!

Any questions email us at

We always try to offer the best value for our clients with the quality of our coaching+results, welcoming socials, beach front accommodation and the whole Windwise experience. We have chose these dates to give best chance of winter wind and availability of our apartments which are in a superb location and get booked up very quickly. Extra days are possible, but it would mean finding alternative accommodation as the apartments are only booked for these dates.


Important Travel & Course Info

You'll be met by our Windwise/TWS rep if you book the group flights. It's possible to arrange different flights and then grab your own 15 minute cab to the resort. If you have any questions about this then contact Windwise and as ever we're very happy to help.  




Windsurfing In El Medano, Tenerife

Tenerife is one of the more popular islands in the Canary Islands for windsurfing and we're looking at a last minute trip to escape the winter! We will base ourselves in El Medano, which is a fabulous windsurfing location on the southern tip of the island. It's a huge windsurfing beach which is famous for flat water on the inside, rolling swell out back and two optional wave breaks - The 'Harbour Wall' an easy intro to waves & El Cazebo where world cup wave events have been held. We will be operating out of TWS Centre which is based in the best part of the beach and is stacked to the roof with kit for you to use!

Blasting in the bay is a mix of flat water and rolling swell!

El Medano offers a perfect mix of flat water, rolling swell and waves, so expect a destination that will offer real variety. It's a good place for an introduction to waves, launching through small waves and moving your windsurfing on to another level. Winter is not the Canaries windiest time, but it does offer a decent option for a winter escape and Tenerife has a history of being one of the best Canary Islands in February with regards to wind. Simon Bornhoft used to test for Boards Magazine in El Medano every Feb for over 10 years, so know's the place well and feel's it a good alternative to Egypt and much cheaper than traveling to the Caribbean in UK winter time. 

Off the water you'll get a taste sensation with fresh fish, endless tapas and of course that apres windsurfing Dorado beer, plus the renowned WINDWISE socials, location guiding and adventures.

WINDWISE will do their best to ensure your safety and enjoyment on the water. There will be times when you're being coached individually and in a group. There will also be times when you are freesailng by yourself.

You are asked to sail responsibly and keep to internationally recognized sailing and windsurfing rules of the sea. 

In the event that Simon Bornhoft is not able to make the clinic due to illness or unforseen circumstances, your WINDWISE booking and holiday are still valid and the course/holiday  will still go ahead with an alternative Windwise coach.
