With changing tides, the characteristics of the waves in La Pared can also change significantly.
At low tide, beginners in particular go surfing in La Pared. Then the water is shallow for many metres on the sandbanks, so that the wide foam waves can run over a large area. These offer ideal conditions to practise standing up on the board, trimming and first turns while surfing.
Advanced surfers wait in La Pared at least until half tide, also called midtide. From mid-tide to high tide, the best unbroken (green) waves often run in the bay. If the swell is very small, there can be clean small waves in La Pared even at low tide.
If the waves are big, experienced surfers in La Pared tend to surf at high tide. If the waves get too big, they often break as a whole (close out) so that you can no longer ride them sideways. If this is the case, there are often small clean waves on the beach of Jandia at the surf spot "Cruz Roja".
Fuerteventura is known for its strong winds. Usually the wind is a bit weaker in the early morning hours, which is why many advanced surfers tend to surf in the morning. However, there are also several afternoons and evenings with light winds where you can watch the sunset in the sea while surfing.
Very strong onshore winds in La Pared often form small wind waves on the east coast of Fuerteventura. These run cleanly on the other side and break there with offshore winds. The two beaches "El Pozo" in Jandia and Esquinzo below the town of the same name are ideal for surfing such wind waves.
