The Canary Islands, with its constant tradewinds and warm temperatures all the year long, are considerated as the European Hawaii.

Gran Canaria is the windiest of the Spanish achipel. In summer the wind can blow with up to 40 knots (peaks in gusts also reaching 50 knots) in the eastern part of the island. Pozo Izquierdo is very famous for its radical conditions in summer. Only 1km upwind is the windsurf spot of ARINAGA (Bahia de Formas). A mole shields the waves and converts the bay in a great  flat water speed spot with solid wind in a right angle.

That was also the spot where in summer 2003 the windsurf ledgends Dunkerbeck, Naish, Albeau & Brindal started the open ocean speed record attempt.

In the windsurf school of the 42 times world champion Bjorn Dunkerbeck you can rent race gear and get hooked by the need for speed.

Speeds can be measured with a fantastic and valid application for your mobile phone “GPSlogit”
