Bristol in Fuerteventura is a fairly exposed reef break that has consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Offshore winds are from the southwest. Most of the surf here comes from groundswells and the ideal swell direction is from the north northwest. There is no beach break and there is a left hand reef break as well.. The quality of the surf isn't affected by the tide. Likely to be crowded if working. Beware of rocks / crowds.
