The reputation of El Medano as being a world class all year round Watersports destination has come about from an extremely consistent North-east trade wind named “Alisios” which allows 365 days cross-onshore conditions suited for beginners towards pro-athletes. When checking wind forecasts for the area, a key tip is to add 5-10 knots on whatever Windguru is predicting when in a north easterly direction, as the wind accelerates around the huge volcano of Mount Teide.
The most accurate forecast is the one from muchoviento.net. The entire bay can be transformed into a freestyle paradise through the arrival of southerly winds, these can also be a lot stronger than what is forecasted. This combined with air temperatures which go almost never above 32 degrees and not below 20 degrees, even in winter time makes El Medano the prefect Watersports holiday destination.
