Windsurf Rental Tarifa
The windsurf spot in front of our ION CLUB Center at Valdevaqueros is definitely one of the few places worldwide where a huge bit of Windsurf history has been created. The famous Levante wind blows side, to side offshore through the bay, while Poniente is side onshore from the right. Due to the rather closed shape of the bay, Windsurfing is extremely safe, even if the wind is sometimes quite strong and slightly offshore. The variety of conditions makes Tarifa an absolute paradise for Windsurfers of all levels!
Our ION CLUB Center in Valdevaqueros is equipped with a wide range and large quantities of the latest Fanatic Boards and Duotone Riggs. As our guest you can choose between a Fix board rental option or a more flexible variation of different boards to use during your stay with us. No matter which option you opt for, you can be assured that the equipment provided will be in top condition making your windsurf experience with us as pleasant as it possibly can be.

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.
