                              Course organisation and safety

                              We understand that besides professional tuition, the most important thing when it comes to improving your windsurfing skills is time to practise. Our instructors will create a safe learning environment, enabling you to train and to receive professional feedback on your actions. 

                              Depending on the type of lesson and content we either teach you in small groups or individually.

                              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 Windsurfing 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!

                              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.

                              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.
