With two windsurfing centers in Fuerteventura you are not short of choice for your next great windsurfing session. Also our second ION CLUB windsurfing center at Costa Calma is very well equipped with the latest range of windsurfing rental equipment from Fanatic and North Sails. You will find The ION CLUB Costa Calma directly in the middle of the huge sandy beach of Costa Calma, in front of the Hotel Monica Beach. Enjoy the unique comfort of this spot, as it is only a short walk away from most of the hotels. Besides the advantage of short ways between accommodation and center you will find brilliant windsurfing conditions, especially for beginners in the morning and for intermediates and freeride sailors during the day. In the morning, starter lessons will normally take place in calm conditions with almost no waves disturbing. Once the wind machine of Fuerteventura is turned on, Freeriders will find excellent flat water conditions to speed up.
Wind and Waves at Costa Calma
The main direction of the wind is cross-offshore from the left. Due to the hotels the wind is quite gusty for the first 100 meters. Further out the wind is more constant and ideal for freeriders and bump & jump. During summer the wind can easily pick up to 30 knots outside, but at the beach most of the time the conditions are suitable for beginners and intermediate windsurfers thanks to wind protection from the hotels. At low tide you can easily stand for the first 30 meters as the sandy beach drops down smoothly. At high tide it gets deep after the first 10 to 15 meters. In the afternoon you can find a harmless little beachbreak due to the sandy beach. Directly in front of the center there is a sandy 40 m entrance reserved for windsurfers.
The Center at Costa Calma
Our ION CLUB Center Costa Calma is located in the heart of Costa Calma beach. For the moment we are operating out of a temporary installation. From Spring 2014 on we hope to offer you the usual ION CLUB standard, like at Risco del Paso, with the common ION CLUB Service. We offer you the latest equipment from Fanatic Boards and North Sails. There is a range of Freemove, Freeride and bump&jump boards as well as a variety of North Sails. For beginners there are fifteen Fanatic and Mistral Viper school boards with adequate North school rigs. Just behind the ION CLUB Center there is a chiringuito serving great Spanish food and drinks.
