Mejillones

Fuerteventura
Mejillones also needs south-westerly wind and NW swell – it's a very rare combination though, even in winter. Easterly is also sideshore and ridable, but the lefthander section is the better wave. Anyway, unless you make your money in the sport, think twice before sailing out to these dimensions. The jacks up from the deep in no time which forms a very fast bowl. What's more, this volcano ride is typical 'North Shore' – it's near the reef, and if you fall the rip sucks you repeatedly into the impact zone. High tide offers the best chance of launching and landing unscathed over the urchin-infested rocks.
