El Golfo in Lanzarote is an exposed reef break that has consistent surf, although summer tends to be mostly flat. Works best in offshore winds from the southeast. Tends to receive a mix of groundswells and windswells and the ideal swell direction is from the west northwest. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Rarely crowded here. Submerged rocks are a hazard.
