The huge sandy beach and the windsurfing and kitesurfing spot at Risco del Paso Playa Sotavento is in a class of its own. It’s hard to find a spot that offers so many different conditions all at the same place. The windsurfing speed track in Risco del Paso in front of the center really lives up to its name. Depending on the tide there is a large shallow area in front of the center, which is superb for intermediate sailors to practice waterstarts and jibes. Another advantage when the tide is up are two shallow water pools which are used for beginner lessons, giving the students a very safe feeling. More windward of the center there is a nice wave sailing spot with waves up to a maximum of 1 meter. It is brilliant for those who want to make the first steps in wave sailing as the waves normally break very smoothly and the sandy bottom is harmless. Kite lessons are held to the left and separate from the windsurfing area.
