SURFING

 

Now and again you get the question if surfing is possible on Mallorca. Tha answer is yes and no. After stormy weather, you get some shore break, and at places where it builds up, you will se some local persons with their board. The photo is taken at Sa Rapita, just next to the Club Nautico. The month is June. A rare summer storm created some good conditions. Normally you have to wait until spring or autumn to get the right weather conditions. It  is a question of being there at the right time, somewhat difficult for the visitor to the island. So if you are a keen surfer, there are a lot better places to go.

In Paguera, on Tora beach you will find some surfers when conditions are right. Also Cala Mayor beach.

Cala Masquida near Cala Ratjada Video. Son Balou, near Can Picafort and Sa Marina are also places where you find surfers.

DeCathlon sports stores have some equipment. Surf wetsuits, body boards. Some times you can will see a  short board on display.

SUP boards are now for rent several places. There are a couple of places open all year near hotel El Cid in Can Pastilla. They have equipment for rent and offer lessons, also for kite surfers. Near Cala Estancia ( Can Pastilla ) there is a shop called Pipe Line, selling and renting equipment and offering lessons.

In Magaluf there is a wave machine.
