Kite surf in Spain

Kite surf in Spain

The long white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters of Tarifa are paradise for thousands of athletes who love sailing sports, especially windsurf and kitesurf, arriving from all around the world to this little corner of southern Spain with views of Tanger. 

In Tarifa, the so called "capital of the wind", the percentage of windy days registering a 4 on the Beaufort scale that ranges from 11 to 17 knots, is very high in any period of the year. This guarantees that you’ll be able to windsurf and kitesurf, plus temperatures and sunny days make the practice of these water sports favorable. 

Over the last 15 years, the trend of windsurfing has changed to kitesurfing because of the versatility of tricks one can do with a kitesurf and the ease of transporting the equipment, with the boards fitting easily into the trunk of a car or even in a specific bag which is very different from windsurfing and its heavy boards with specific masts and booms needed for different wind conditions. 

After one week of intensive courses with an instructor you will be able to navigate by yourself, if there are adequate wind conditions, even if you have never done these sports before. You’ll start by learning how to set up your equipment and the basic security measures followed by a few hours of learning how to control your kite on the sand, then you’ll learn how to control it in the water and finally you’ll control it with the board. 

On the beach close to Tarifa, there is a sufficient amount of space for the different schools to establish their own security area, necessary to avoid bothering the rest of the swimmers. Courses in small groups (4 people max) including liability insurance range from 80 euros for a basic course to 350 euros for one week. 

The walled area with its medieval castle gives a special charm to the city, where you can relax after a day of wind or kitesurfing and enjoy tapas in a unique setting with restaurants and small shops in the little streets of the old town. 

Around Tarifa, you can participate in other outdoor activities to enjoy the scenery such as mountain biking and horseback riding which will allow you to admire beautiful sunsets next to the beach with Africa only a few kilometers away. You will also be able to walk along the ruins of Baelo Claudia at the foot of the large dune of Bolonia or go whale watching in the Strait of Gilbratar.
