Kitesurf Storage Golf de Roses
Feel like bringing your own equipment but don’t want to have to deal with the daily logistic side of this option ?
Our ION CLUB in Golf de Roses is based right on the beach in front of the best Kite spot in Golf de Roses. As one of our storage guest, you will have your own private storage box assigned to you. In this box you will be able to fit up to three kites, your harness and of course your twintip board.
Besides the box, you will be free to use all the other center facilities, such as showers, changing rooms and so on. In case the wind is different than what you expected, of course you can always top up your own equipment range with our brandnew Duotone rental gear.
Making your holiday life easier is our pleasure !

The Kitesurf Spot in 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, the wind is generally lighter and great for kids or some kite Foiling. In the afternoon the wind usually picks up making turning the bay into a perfect playground for Kitesurfers of all levels. 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.
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.
A word about

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.
