 WATER SPORTS

 

Kite Surfing

Kite surfing is a new exciting water sport for the new century. Since 1999 the population of kite surfers has grown rapidly. Kite surfing is whilst being very simple, is also about co-ordination.  A kite surfer stands on a board with foot straps or bindings and use the power of a large controllable kite to propel him and the board across the water. The surfers body is the only connection between the kite and the board and you have to control them both at the same time.  Basically its like flying a kite in the sky only with the added difficulty of steering the board on the water. Many of the windsurf schools now offer lessons and equipment hire for kite surfing.

 

Windsurfing, Surfing & Boogy Boarding

As with windsurfing, Fuerteventura has become a Mecca for surfers and boogy boarders especially during the Autumn/Winter months with the advent of the large Atlantic swells.  There are perfect breaks to suit all abilities and some top class surf schools for the total beginner. Whilst relatively inexpensive and un-crowded the winds are unpredictable. Fuerteventura is host to the P.W.A. Windsurfing Speed & Slalom Event.

 

Deep Sea Fishing

The exceptional climate, volcanic sea beds and depths of up to 3500 mtrs make the Fuerteventura one of the world's leading locations for big game enthusiasts.  There is an enormous variety of fish to be caught here including the marlin and the legendary swordfish which, are always returned to the sea. To take part in this unique sport no previous experience is required. If fishing isn't for you then the boat trip can be just as exciting as you will almost always see flying fish or turtle on the way and the deck is great place to top up your tan. Oh and don't forget the camera!

 

Diving

Fuerteventura offers many superb dive sites just waiting to be found. Divers can enjoy dramatic rock formations, drop-offs, wrecks and reefs and a myriad of marine life such as eagle rays, angel sharks, barracudas, moray eels, tuna and sea bream. Ideal for both beginners and advanced divers.
