Tenerife is pushing the boat out this summer. The biggest of the Canary Islands is hosting two major events that will delight sport and music fans alike: the Professional Windsurfers Association World Championships and the Arona Summer Festival. Two exciting events that will definitely liven up your summer holiday.

For its third consecutive year, El Médano beach, in south Tenerife, is hosting the Professional Windsurfers Association World Championships (wave discipline) from 3rd to 9th August 2013. This year, the event will be more exciting than ever, as Tenerife will be the first place where scores will be allocated in the World Championships’ wave discipline. Many of the best male and female international windsurfers, including Martin ten Hoeve, Marcilio Browne, Ricardo Campello, Dany Bruch, Alex Mussolini, Iballa Ruano, Daida Ruano, Karin Jaggi and Steffi Wahl will compete in Tenerife. There will also be music concerts and recreational activities for everybody to enjoy. El Médano beach is known as Tenerife’s kite boarding and windsurfing capital due to its regular trade winds and its natural golden sands that extend for over three kilometres – making it the longest stretch of beach in Tenerife. -

If sound waves are more your thing, pack your best dancing shoes and join thousands of revellers for a 13-hour marathon of the best international dance music at the Arona Summer Festival on 17th August 2013. The Arona Summer Festival, considered one of the top 15 summer festivals in Europe, will be held at the Olympic Stadium Antonio Domíngez Alfonso  in Playa de las Américas. The line-up for this year includes renowned international acts such as Alesso, RedFoo, Michael Calfan and Nervo as well as Spanish artists The Zombie Kids, Monkey Rave and Ray Castellano, amongst many others.
