Dieter van der Eyken scored a lot of great windsurfing sessions in Tenerife the past winter and now shares his best moments with us. The winter of 2021/22 was Dieter van der Eyken’s second consecutive full winter on Tenerife since he moved to the island in 2018. With strong Calima winds, a few SW storms and a lot of spot checking it was another winter filled with special big wave windsurfing sessions from an unexpected session in the North to unique conditions in Las Amerias only seen on very rare strong SE Calima winds.
The North shore of Tenerife has some of the best & most intense waves you can imagine where the line between doing the perfect turn/air and a trip to the rocks in extremely thin. It’s this rush of being at the edge of your comfort zone and the unique feeling in the bottom turn you get when riding waves like this that make it worth the risks. Thanks everyone for filming & now looking forward to a windy summer on the Canaries for some side on riding. Dieter van der Eyken
