Your Safety is our responsibility
Your safety is our top priority at ION CLUB Golf de Roses !
The Ballena Alegre- ION CLUB Kitesurfing Zone has been operating since 2005, and is not only the first official kite zone in Catalonia, it is also the safest in the area.
The Kitesurfing zone consists of two areas, one for ION CLUB’s 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. We are always checking out the kitesurfers on the water during opening hours, and are able to act immediately in case of any emergency. The safety team is ready at all times to attend rescues with the ION CLUB rescue boat.
Kiteboarding Zones and how to use them
You must be able to ride safely upwind and hold a special third party kitesurfing insurance (e.g. IKO, VDWS) which covers you in case you cause an accident. You can also obtain this insurance cover locally. Furthermore, you must be a client of ION CLUB or the Ballena Alegre campsite.
There are no fees to use the zone, you must however pay for your lycra, which we use to identify all approved kiters in the zone.
How do I use the Kite-Expert Zone properly?
This zone is for launching and landing kites only.
The zone is marked with buoys; every user of the zone MUST sail in and out through the channel marked.
For everyone’s safety, jumps are only allowed far away from the beach (min. 200 m).
Respect right of way rules between all the other sea users (kitesurfers, windsurfers, boats, etc.).
You must not play with your kite on the beach or try moves or learning kitesurfing in the zone.
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 away south of the French border, has been a favourite spot for windsurfers for decades.
The ION CLUB Golf de Roses centre, at the southern end of the bay is situated between Sant Pere Pescador and L'Escala. The ION CLUB centre is located in the 4-star campsite and bungalow park La Ballena Alegre Costa Brava. The campsite will be the venue this year again for the PWA Worldcup event taking place right beside the ION CLUB centre.
May, June, July, August, September
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.
On good days, impressive waves build up near the shore.
