Located in South Gran Canaria, Maspalomas, Derecha del Faro is an excellent right-hand point that does not break often, but when it does offer up performance walls at one of the most popular beach resorts in the Canary Islands. The waves here can be challenging and break for up to 200 meters over a rock and sand bottom.
What are the best surf conditions for Derecha del Faro?
Gets good between waist-high and double overhead. We recommend riding a longboard if smaller and a shortboard as the size picks up. This break is suitable for all levels of surfer. The surf here almost never breaks (2/10) and will get insanely crowded (8/10). The best winds are from the North. Needs a massive Northwest or West swell to think about breaking. Works on all tides.
We recommend wearing a springsuit in the summer when water temperatures rise to 22 degrees. In the winter a 3/2 is best when water temperatures drop to 17. See the temperature chart below for more data on this.
