In Tarifa kitesurfing is a way of life. The main beach at Los Lances is a global mecca for wind and water sports. Our Tarifa kitesurfing school is based just on the edge of Los Lances, right where all the fun happens.

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.

Tarifa has an amazing kitesurfing culture, it’s a special place to be if you want to be a part of things. Almost every bar and restaurant in Tarifa is full of kiters reliving their experiences over a bite or a drink and half the shops in town have the stuff you need. On top of that, there’s the amazing variety of kite spots in the vicinity. If the wind is too strong, you can go somewhere nearby. In the unlikely event there’s not enough wind, you can go and hunt the thermals. The whole town vibes with kite and surf culture and the wind is your constant friend.



We have been teaching people to kitesurf, windsurf, surf and paddleboard for more years than we care to remember! Our instructors are experts in their field.

We meet all the new, stricter regulations for teaching kitesurfing in Tarifa: all our instructors are FAV qualified or national level equivalent, which is now a legal requirement. But that’s just our minimum level of qualification. You won’t find many other places that have instructors qualified to teach windsports to Olympic level and qualified to teach the disabled. We will do what we say we can do and never promise to do anything we can’t. And we structure everything we do to help you to learn.
