In Tarifa kitesurfing is a way of life. Our little town is a global mecca for watersports and is generally recognised as the kitesurf capital of Europe. Graykite’s Tarifa kitesurfing school is based just on the edge of the main beach at Los Lances which means you’ll be based right at the spot where all the fun happens.
KITESURFING IN TARIFA
If you’re a beginner Tarifa’s miles of hazard free beach are ideal for learning kite control and the gentle shelf of the beach combined with the Sea Angels rescue boats makes Tarifa a safe place for kitesurfing lessons even when the wind’s offshore. There’s almost always wind, either a steady Poniente or a powerful Levante so you’re less likely to lose teaching days here than almost anywhere else in the world. The constant wind, miles of white sand beaches and unique climate mean Tarifa is an amazing place to learn how to kitesurf.
The flat water lagoons at Los Lances, Valdevaqueros and Palmones mean there’s an ideal location for your first board starts whatever the wind and the variety of riding conditions mean that once you have mastered your kite and board here you’ll be confident to kitesurf independently pretty much anywhere in the world.
If that sounds good to you feel free to ask us a question or book a lesson!
