QUEMAO CLASS is the big-wave, high level surf and bodyboard event on the canary islands.
An event where bodyboarders and surfers surf side by side, in a respectful atmosphere where every ride will be celebrated. Every year since 2015 the Quemao Class is held on the volcanic island of Lanzarote, at one of the riskiest reef-breaks in Europe: EL QUEMAO. Invitational only, the chosen participants are professionals in their sports, showing extraordinary skills & athleticism, braveness and character, not challening each other, but the dangerous wave of EL QUEMAO.
For the best conditions the contest takes part in between January and March when the winter swells of the atlantic ocean hit the canary islands hard! The exact date of the next Quemao Class will be announced in short notice, keeping the athletes ready on call, excited to travel all around the world to ride the massive tubes.
Following on two days, bodyboarders and surfers ride heat after heat, until at the finals the best athletes will stand out.
