Tarifa is a fantastic place to learn to kitesurf.
Our unique location on the Strait of Gibraltar means it’s almost always windy in Tarifa.

The presence of the Sea Angels rescue boats on the main kite beach at Los Lances mean that every wind direction is kiteable here. Check out all the Kite Spots in and near Tarifa!

The tidal lagoons at Los Lances and Valdevaqueros are ideal spots to practice your first board starts. Don't worry about being dragged around by waves or getting a mouthful of salt water!

There are more sheltered beaches at: Bolonia, Palmones and Los Canos de Meca!
When the wind is too strong in Tarifa there are plenty of options only a short drive away.

The consistent wind and variety of spots on offer are the reason that Tarifa is the kitesurfing capital of Europe. If you learn to kitesurf here you can kitesurf confidently anywhere.

Tarifa is probably the best place in the world to learn to be an independent kite surfer.
