Playa del Inglas in Gran Canaria is a fairly exposed beach and reef break that has inconsistent surf. Summer offers the optimum conditions for surfing. Works best in offshore winds from the west. Clean groundswells prevail and the best swell direction is from the south. The beach break provides left and right handers. Best around high tide. The crowds in the water make a gath helmet a good idea.

FEATURE UPDATE: we now show red swell icons for 'open sea' swells that are travelling in an unfavourable direction for the surf break. In places, these swells may still wrap around coastlines and produce smaller waves at some breaks. They are also significant for windsurfers and other water users that tend to venture further off-shore.
