        course organisation and safety 

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

        Here in ION CLUB Tarifa, 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! No matter which package you choose, if during the lesson the instructor realizes that another package would be more suitable for you, you can always 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 Tarifa

        Tarifa is located on the southernmost tip of the European continent, where the Strait of Gibraltar and the African coast are so close that they almost touch. Due to the jet effect of the Strait of Gibraltar, the winds get additional force and accelerate on the exit of the Strait, often reaching up to 30 knots and more on the good days.

        Especially from April to November, Tarifa is blessed with an almost 100% wind guarantee. The combination of wind, beautiful landscapes, amazing infrastructure of shops, restaurants, bars, and an outstanding nightlife - make Tarifa one of the top locations for windsurfers and Kitesurfers from all over the world.

        Our Center in Tarifa is situated right on the most famous beach for windsurfing and kiting - Valdevaqueros. Besides Windsurf and Kitesurf rental, our international team of certified instructors offer a great variety of different lessons. People with own equipment can make use of our extensive storage facilities.

        On the same property there is also the famous Tumbao beach bar and Valdevaqueros restaurant.

         

        BEST PERIODS

        HOW TO GET TO TARIFA?

        From Malaga to Tarifa

        Leave the airport, taking the AP-7 motorway in the direction of Algeciras/ Cadiz will be the fastest route (approx cost is 15 euros). It shortens the trip considerably as compared with the national road, which takes approx. 35 minutes more.

        From Algeciras

        Continue in the direction of Cadiz on the N-340, passing through the village of Pelayo in the mountains ; after about 20 km, Tarifa can be seen ahead.
        To get to the center, drive on past the town of Tarifa and after about 10 km the Hurricane Hotel center can be seen on the left. After a further 2 km, turn right at Valdevaqueros Camping and take a U turn to take the Valdevaqueros Entrance now on your right and continue on to the ION CLUB Valdevaqueros Center, which you will find on the beach next to Tumbao bar.
