Thread: El Medano - week of 18th

Best place to park and launch is on the road near to Cabezo beach. As you drive into Medano from the TF1 take the first main road to the left (just after the crossroads with a boat!) and follow it down to the sea. You'll see a big car park there with lots of vans etc.
Then Sunday looks OK, Monday with big kit ... + some more NEly wind from Friday 24th - leaves Tuesday to Thursday to go biking.

What sort of wetsuit's needed at the moment?Loose - the opposite of tight. Lose - the one that's pronounced 'looze'.

Yep, same for me. I much prefer a shortie (3/2 good one) because it's so much easier for an old bloke like me to put on and off. But it's too chilly some of the time (eg when it's cloudy and/or with wind chill) and then I use a 3/2 long arm / long leg suit. A 3/2 short arm suit would be the best choice for just one suit.

Glad that you had a good day on Sunday loyo. Shame that you missed Saturday, it was my best day for quite a while. Most of the people planing on Monday were the pro slalom racers and they probably had 8m's or bigger etc
The island is fantastic to explore ... I suggest Masca, Chinyero (I was biking there today), Teide + las Canadas, Oratava valley, Anaga region (far north).
