Picture This: Windsurfing in El Médano (Tenerife)

Windsurfing in Tenerife, Canary Islands

Well, yes – To master windsurfing and/or kitesurfing is another project of mine. Mastering the sport is probably a bit too ambitious – unless, of course, I’m a born natural and I’ve wasted 28 years of life. So, for what’s left of 2012, let’s just keep it at learning how to fall properly, how to get up sort of graciously and maybe even not crashing into the water for at least 5 minutes.

Does that seem reasonable?

I took this shot at one of my favorite beaches in Tenerife (Spain) – El Médano. Every summer it becomes a surfing hotspot!

    This would be so much fun to learn how to do. Windsurfing is really popular in Hood River, OR which is near where I grew up. I’ve always wanted to try the sport. The only problem is that I hate cold water. Must find wetsuit then windsurfing board!

      I’m not a cold water person either… I’ve seen people doing this with really thick wetsuits, but I somewhat think it takes the fun out of it! You shouldn’t be dreading to fall in the water… but enjoying the plunge! :)

    sounds like a lot of fun! I don’t do a lot of watersports but I’ve always wanted to try more different ones.

      Aaah… there are so many varieties. I’ve recently just found out about the stand-up board, too – I think it’s much more stable and still a lot of fun, so there’s actually something for everyone!

    Sounds like a terrific challenge! Will you be windsurfing at El Médano or other places as well? Your photo makes me want to learn how to windsurf on Tenerife.
