Playa del Socorro Surf Guide

Playa del Sorocco in Tenerife is an exposed beach and reef break that has quite reliable surf and can work at any time of the year. Offshore winds are from the southwest. Waves just as likely from local windswells as from distant groundswells and the optimum swell angle is from the north. The beach break provides left and right handers. Good surf at all stages of the tide. Often Crowded. Overcrowding can even make surfing hazardous.

We hope you find the new 12-day forecasts and additional details useful.

Kudos to everyone who helped us debug this over the past 3 months.

Be sure to click on the Advanced Surf option to see extra details about the sea-state. Look out for crossing swells and short period local wind swells and chop that will often spoil a groundswell even if the wind is perfect. As yet there is no allowance for this in the swell rating. This is something we are working on.
