LADIES ONLY CLINIC IN
Dates: 11-16 Feb 23
SUMMER '23 TBC
The Place: El Medano is a charming village with a real surfy, laidback atmosphere, great food and most importantly epic sailing. It is an extremely popular windsurfing destination and it’s not hard to see why. Spanish bars, restaurants and surf shops line the harbour and boardwalk, which is always quietly busy with people making use of the public exercise equipment and tranquil spots for some morning yoga.
Coaching: Coaching runs Saturday – Thursday, at a cost of 500€ per week.
On this clinic we coach from first time out in the waves right up to aerials and jump variations.
Coaching includes on land theory, on water practise and video sessions. We will also have the option of yoga sessions throughout the week.
We ask that you are able to sail a wave board, be comfortable in the harness and footstraps and waterstart.
conditions: This clinic will be held at Playa Salada, just upwind from the famous Cabezo beach were we have cross onshore wind with port tack jumping and starboard tack wave riding. This beach offers easy waves with a mostly sandy launch and the most constant wind in El Medano. During spring we expect head high waves or smaller.
As all windsurfers know we can't control the weather but traditionally February brings us around 4/7 strong wind days, with that in mind if we have some lighter wind days we will still be on the water, with wing foil, light wind core skills, SUP and surf depending on the conditions.
Travel: Flights are pretty cheap with lots of airlines, you fly to Tenerife South airport from most British airports. Once you arrive, Medano is only 10 minutes by taxi from the airport and costs around 10 – 15 Euros

Temp: During March the average daytime temperature is around 25 degrees, and the water is a bit cooler after winter, so a wetsuit is definitely recommended, a long summer suit or a shortie (for the more hardy amongst you). Also the evenings can be a bit chilly so it’s worth packing a hoody and some jeans.
In summer the daytime temperature is around 30 degrees but the wind can still be cool. Most riders wear at least a summer 2mm shorty, some will sail in just board shorts. We recommend bringing a wetsuit as we will spend a lot of time on the water and on the beach. Even during summer it's always good to have at least one hoody for the windy nights!
What else the town offers: Cycling, both road and mountain biking is big here so pack your lycra if that’s your thing. There are also lots of excursions such as trekking mount Teide or the giant water park; Siam Park in Las Americas.
