Kitesurf Lessons Golf De Roses

Several sandbanks in the water turn the spot into a “semi-shallow water area” with the huge, fine sandy beach sloping gently into the water. In the morning, when the wind is light, the bay of Roses is a perfect for kids and kitesurf-beginner. Instructions are always held in the kitesurf-teaching zone. The Kitesurfing zone consists of two areas, one for ION CLUB classes and another for kite-experts (in high season June-September). No restrictions are applied before or after the above dates, except those of our teaching Area, located in front of the center. All our Kitesurfing lessons are given by certified instructors only and are offered in several different languages.

In order to help you find the appropriate course for your level, we created the ION CLUB Product Finder. Check which skills you already have and the lesson finder will show you which course is best for you.

COURSE ORGANISATION AND SAFETY

We understand that besides professional tuition, the most important thing when it comes to learning to kitesurf is time to practise. This is why we organise all of our lessons in a way to maximise your time with the kite, without sacrificing your safety of course.

Here at the ION CLUB Golf de Roses, you won’t find large group lessons where 4 students or more are sharing one kite between each other. Whenever the conditions allow it, our instructors will make sure that you have your own kite to practice, train, and make mistakes in a safe and protected environment. 

In order to provide you with instant feedback especially during our advanced lesson program, our instructors use Radio Headsets enabling them to communicate with you while riding.

FLEXIBILITY

We understand that choosing a kitesurf lesson package from home might be difficult. Don´t worry! We are always here to help you find the right package for you! Nevertheless, if during the lesson the instructor realises that another package would be more suitable for you, we will do our best to change that on site. You will never have to join a lesson, which actually doesn´t suit your expectations or level.

After every session your instructor will give you detailed feedback and recommendation on how to continue – no matter which course you initially booked. Your success and progress is all that matters to us!

    We will provide a range of different DUOTONE KITEBOARDING  kites, boards, bars suiting the wind conditions.

              A word about

              ION CLUB Golf de Roses

              Golf de Roses is undoubtedly THE windsurf, kitesurf and wingfoil spot on the Costa Brava in the north of Spain. A spot where the Tramontana, a north/northwest wind from the Pyrenees, and the constant sea breeze during the summer months blow regularly. The long sandy Bay of Roses, on the Mediterranean coast, only 30 km south of the French border has been a favorite spot for windsurfers and kitesurfers for decades … and of course, now wingfoilers.

              The ION CLUB Golf de Roses center, at the southern end of the bay, is located between the villages of Sant Pere Pescador and L'Escala, more precisely in the Camping & Bungalow Resort La Ballena Alegre Costa Brava. Every year this campsite hosts the World Cup of Windsurfing, which takes place right next to our ION CLUB center.

              BEST PERIODS

              May, June, July, August, September

              WIND

              During the warmer months in summer a fairly reliable thermal wind from the southeast is the dominant wind in the Bay of Roses. The Tramontana, a north/northwest wind, blows mainly during the colder months, but it can also show up in the middle of summer for several days, and can reach 25-30 knots. In front of the center of the ION CLUB Golf de Roses, in summer the wind often blows sideshore, coming from the left when looking at the sea. In the morning there is usually only a gentle wind, offering perfect conditions for children and beginners in windsurfing and kitesurfing courses. In the afternoon, this thermal wind increases, quite often reaching 20-25 knots, and the most experienced windsurfers, kitesurfers and wingfoilers can finally indulge their passion. Windsurfing courses to master the jibe or practice water start, and also wingfoil courses for all levels take place in the afternoons.

               

              WAVES

              Occasionally, waves of varying heights are formed near the shore. However, as a rule, the water is flat or choppy between May and October.

              HOW TO GET THERE ?

              From Barcelona or Girona

              By car access the ION CLUB Golf de Roses center by the highway (Autopista AP 7, French border - Barcelona).

              Coming from France or from Girona airport (45 minutes) or Barcelona (1h30), you must take exit 5, L'Escala / Empuries.

              Then, take the G1-623 towards L'Escala for about 20 km.

              Just before arriving at L'Escala, you will come to a roundabout (on the right: Tourist Office) where you will turn left towards St. Martí d'Empúries / Platges St Pere Pescador.

              After 1 km, you will see the village of St. Martí d'Empúries on your right. At this small traffic circle, continue straight on.

              You will pass over a small bridge and finally you will be able to read the large yellow signs of the campsite La Ballena Alegre Costa Brava, first campsite on the right. The ION CLUB Golf de Roses center is located at the right end of the campsite (looking towards the sea).

              Parking

              If you are not staying at the Resort La Ballena Alegre campsite and bungalows, but at one of the hotels, apartments or other campsites in the area, please read the parking instructions carefully.

              During low season, when this camping ground is closed, you can drive into the camping ground itself and park directly behind our ION CLUB center. The gate at the reception will open automatically. Follow the signs inside the campsite.

              During high season the campsite is open. Unfortunately, you cannot enter by car if you are not a guest of the campsite. As an ION CLUB guest you can park your car for free for 3 hours per day in the parking lot in front of the reception if you present your voucher at the reception of the camping La Ballena Alegre. Of course you can walk inside the campsite to our ION CLUB center. From the reception parking lot to the ION CLUB is only a 5 minute walk.
