Las Bajas Surf Guide

Las Bajas in Lanzarote is an exposed reef break that has fairly consistent surf and can work at any time of the year. The best wind direction is from the southeast with some shelter here from northeast winds. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the north northwest. There is a right hand reef break. Best around low tide. Even when there are waves, it's not likley to be crowded. Take care to avoid the rocks.
