In January Gran Canaria has an average of 8 hours of sunshine in the air as well as in the water. The wind is decent with an average of 10 km/h. It can also reach more than 20 km/h. The sun rises at 8AM and sets around 6PM.
The Playa de las Canteras is located in Las Palmas. A 4 km long city beach with a flat entrance. Beside jamming it invites for long beach walks and catching waves. The paseo provides spotlights that illuminates the beach during the night. So jams are possible 24/7. We’re also able to choose from a variety of beaches depending on the wind directions.
This year we will orient around the ocean tides schedule. This way we can ensure to have a decent hard pack during the tournament and provide the best jamming conditions to you.
