Paddle Surf on the coasts of Tenerife

If you are looking to practice Paddle Surf in Tenerife you should know that, for the most part, this sport is done in the south of the island, since most of the companies that offer board rentals or courses are located in this area. Paddle Surf is practicable during most of the year but it is recommended to do it in summer, which is the time when the sea is usually calmer.

We always find ourselves at sea.

Paddle Surfing is a somewhat unknown activity but is gaining followers over time. It consists of standing on a larger than normal surfboard and moving on it with the help of a paddle, either to go for a ride or to catch waves.

Although it is normal to wear a wetsuit when doing this activity, it is not necessary in the waters of Tenerife due to the good weather and the water temperature is not too low, especially in summer.

Paddle surfing is practiced for several purposes other than surfing:

For hiking: Using the larger size of the board which aids in its stability, you can go hiking with an ease similar to moving around in a kayak.

To fish: Most of the fish along the coast of Tenerife are not big enough to unsettle you if you hook them, so you can take advantage and have a different fishing afternoon with your board.

For yoga
A less common application on the island. Paddle surfing is often used in places like California to practice yoga on the coast in a different and relaxing way.

But… What is Paddle Surf?

Stand Up Paddle or Paddle Surf is a sport that originated in Hawaii in the 1960s. At this time, surf instructors began to use larger boards and paddles to move over the water, partially copying the traditional fishermen of the area who moved in a similar way but in canoes.

It was not recognized as a sport until 2013, when its boom in popularity began to spread its practice around the world. Stand Up Paddle Surfing in Tenerife is something new so it still doesn’t have too many followers or services available at the moment.
