Description

The beach of El Confital is located on the island of Gran Canaria. It is a spot open to the sea with good waves especially in the months of September to May.

Its volcanic rock-bottom offers world-class waves hosting championships such as the WQS of the ASP and the Red Bull Rival.

There is a very good right-hander wave with pipe section and very fast: only for PROS!

Usually there are many people so always respect the locals and the preferences.

Be very careful with the rock-bottom.
