Unlike other surf spots and beaches, there are practically no dangerous currents, cliffs or stones in the water in Jandia.
Perhaps this is what makes the waves in Jandia a little dangerous for inexperienced surfers. It's very easy to get right behind the broken waves in Jandia, even with dry hair. You can paddle around the waves further to the right at their start. If you then drift back a little to the left into the bay, you can sit in the line up on big days with dry hair. However, waves can roll in here that are clearly overhead.
Every surfer knows his own surfing level best and everyone in the line up must know the priority rules of surfing. For the locals, Jandia is a well-guarded treasure. When the waves in Cruz Roja are very big, only surfers who can handle the wave should start at the peak (beginning of the wave). It is not uncommon for professional surfers from other Canary Islands to be at the spot.
These surfers mainly look for the last section of the wave, which runs close to the beach in front of the lifeguard house. Here the waves get high and very hollow, so that tubes also form for surfing. However, the waves break into extremely shallow water here. Although the bottom is entirely sand, a hard fall can cause some pain including broken bones.
With all the precautions and priority rules you should follow when surfing the main wave in front of the lifeguard house, it should be mentioned that there are always smaller waves breaking in Jandia. Just walk a little to the right down the beach.
