Now it feels like autumn has already begun with September. Of course it is still late summer and you can still experience some warm days with sun and swimming in the lake, but everyone knows and feels that this will soon be over.
The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder and the first gingerbread cookies are appearing on the supermarket shelves.
On the European mainland, autumn is always associated with a little melancholy, because it is the season that follows summer and I know only a few people who do not call summer their favorite season.
Autumn is one of the best seasons for surfing in Fuerteventura
It looks different in Fuerteventura. Most of them are looking forward to autumn!
Unlike in Central Europe, autumn in Fuerteventura is not the time of year when it gets colder.
On the contrary: Due to the often strong winds, the weather sometimes feels cooler in summer than in autumn.
In October and November the weather in Fuerteventura is just like one would wish for a summer in Central Europe. It is always 25 to 30 degrees warm, at night it cools down to almost 20 degrees, the water is a pleasant 22 to 24 degrees. You only need a sweater or light jacket for the evening.
The real highlight are the waves!
Light wind and steady swell, especially from the west, enchants every sandbank for beginners and every reef for advanced players in the blue playgrounds as we know them from surf videos and magazines.
For me and for all other surfers in Fuerteventura, autumn is the best time of the year!
Surf camps for beginners in autumn?
Many prospective and inexperienced surfers shy away from autumn in the Canary Islands because they get the impression from surfing media that autumn is only suitable for advanced surfers. That is not right.
Especially in autumn there are many days when beginners and advanced surfers can have fun at the same surf spot, because in autumn there are many good waves on the beaches of the west coast.
Before the big winter storms stir up the Atlantic and the waves conjure up reefs, which advanced surfers talk about the rest of the year, the moderate surf on the beaches of the west coast produces clean waves that are not too big on the beaches of the west coast, such as La Pared or Garcey or Cofete.
On these days, advanced surfers can unpack their tricks on the sandbanks at high tide and beginners can surf their first white water waves at low tide.
Now is the time for advanced beginners to venture further out to the unbroken waves and try out their first real wave rides.
Without falling into euphoria, I can say that autumn is one of the best, if not the best, season to visit a surf camp in Fuerteventura. The weather and water are warm in summer and the waves are ideal for beginners and advanced surfers.
The only open question: When will you come over to surf?
