Tarifa is located on the southernmost tip of the European continent, where the Strait of Gibraltar and the African coast are so close that they almost touch. Due to the jet effect of the Strait the winds get additional force and acceleration so that they easily reach up to 8 Beaufort on top days. No doubt Tarifa is one of the best spots in Europe with almost 100% wind guarantee. However, you are never alone here, in July and August the beaches are packed with wind- and kitesurfers. During summer time the dominating wind is the Levante blowing from the east (cross offshore from the left), in autumn and spring it is the Poniente blowing from the west (sideshore to cross onshore).

Kitesurf Instruction

At our professional wind and kitesurfing centers, you will start out by learning the perfect technique for handling the kite before you're allowed to take off for the first time, and you will acquire all the skills needed to skim over the water after only a few hours and learn the basics of high jumps. "Cruising", as it is called, can be a lot of fun, too - you don't need to make daring jumps from the word 'go'.

Our centers always provide the latest and best North Kiteboarding equipment. Each center carries kites and boards specially geared to beginners' instruction. It goes without saying that we use the most up-to-date safety systems, and our experienced and fully certified instructors teach kitesurfing in an environment characterized by a maximum of safety, allowing you to learn the sport without danger or frustration.

We offer group courses with a maximum of 4 students, semi-private courses with 2 students and private courses. This gives you an opportunity to try your hand at this exciting sport. After completing this course, you will usually already have mastered the control of the kite and, with a little bit of luck, be able to cruise to and fro.

By the way, kitesurfing and windsurfing ideally complement each other – try both! Do you feel an urge to try out this sport? Do you want to become the master of the kite, get ready for extreme jumps and be airborne? Then take off with us…
