the Windsurf spot in Tarifa
The Windsurf spot in front of our ION CLUB Center at Valdevaqueros is for sure one of the most famous and well known spots for Windsurfing around the world. 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!
April, May, June, July, August, September, October
During Summer time the dominating wind is Levante blowing from East (cross offshore from the left), in Autumn and Spring it is Poniente blowing from West (sideshore to cross onshore from the right).
Choppy to flat water in Summer and some good swell can come in during Autumn and Winter season.
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.
