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 split our ION CLUB Kite Tuition program into three main parts.

BEGINNER SECTION  – for all of you who like to start Kitesurfing

INTERMEDIATE SECTION – for those who like to become independent Kitesurfers

ADVANCED SECTION – for the ones who like to learn a special maneuver or a new discipline.

No matter which stage of your kitesurfing journey you might be, we guarantee that our instructors will be passionate about making you improve!

    2. Flying a kite in the water: body dragging, control and re-launching
    3. Getting up and riding on a board

    You don’t need to be super-fit to kitesurf. And the kit is lightweight, so you don’t need lots of muscle strength either. But of course, a decent level of fitness will help you to progress faster.
    Your instructor will be there to support you, coach you, and more importantly, keep you safe through the learning process.
    We will provide a range of different DUOTONE KITEBOARDING  kites, boards, bars suiting the wind conditions.
    Usually, you will do 2 hours/day for the 6 hours course but if there are availability and wind conditions you might be able to squeeze in 2 sessions in a day.

        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 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! You 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!

        A word about

        ION CLUB Golf de Roses

        THE Windsurf & Kitesurf Spot at the Costa Brava. A spot featuring the Tramuntana wind from the Pyrenees and steady sea breezes in the summer months. The long sandy Bay of Roses, on the Mediterranean coast, only 30 km south from the french border, has been a favourite spot for windsurfers for decades.

        The ION CLUB Golf de Roses, at the southern end of the bay is situated between Sant Pere Pescador and L'Escala. The ION CLUB centre is located in the Camping & Bungalow Resort La Ballena Alegre Costa Brava. The campsite every year is the venue  for the PWA Worldcup event taking place right beside the ION CLUB centre.

        BEST PERIODS

        May, June, July, August, September

        WIND

        In the warmer months, a thermal wind from the south east is the main wind in the Bay of Roses. The “Tramontana” from the north normally blows in the cooler months, however, it can also create strong winds in midsummer for days. In front of the ION CLUB center it blows sideshore from the left. From May to September, the thermal wind is very reliable. While in the mornings there are usually light winds which offer the perfect conditions for kids, in the afternoon, it mostly increases and can reach up to 6 bft.

        WAVES

        On good days, impressive waves build up near the shore.

        HOW TO GET THERE ?
