Our kitespots:

Tarifa

Tarifa is the southernmost city of Europe, the point separating Europe from Africa, and also separating the Mediterranean Sea from the Atlantic. Tarifa is the one of the windiest places on Earth, and one of the most popular kite places in Europe. It is located in the ¨bottleneck¨ of Gibraltar Strait, just 15km from the coast of Morocco.
Kite spots: Valdevaqueros beach, Los Lances beach, Bolonia, Dos mares.
Sightseeing: Church of St. Mateo, Castle of Guzman the Good.

Islote de Sancti Petri

Sancti Petri is located at the mouth of the channel with the same name, and protected by the island from outside, which creates unique conditions for flat waters almost with any direction of the wind. Near the anchorage, which is very quiet and peaceful, there are some great fish restaurants. It is possible to sail up the channel into it´s wider part, where flat water also can be surfed in any wind direction.
Kite spots: Mouth of the channel, Punta del Boquerón, lake up the channel.
Sightseeing: The fortress of St. Petri, Punta del Boquerón, the beach of St. Petri.

Cabo Trafalgar

Cabo Trafalgar is a cape on the southern Atlantic coast of Spain (Costa de la Luz), between the city of  Cadiz and Tarifa. In any wind conditions you can find a waves on the windward side of the cape (onshore wind) and flat water on the leeward side of the cape (offshore wind). But who cares about offshore winds when you have your own boat? You can also walk from one side of the cape to another in approximately 5-7 minutes, even carrying your stuff on.
Kite spots: Caños de Meca, Cabo de Trafalgar, El Palmar.
Sightseeing: Trafalgar Lighthouse, Natural Park of Cabo de Trafalgar, beach of Las Dunes.

Cadiz

Cadiz is a great place for beach vacations and sea walks. Passionate admirers of yachting and sailing, surfing, windsurfing and kiting also just love to come to Costa de la Luz. If you fancy snorkeling, you might find interesting to dive at some rocky sites of coast.
Kite spots: Caletilla de Rota, La Caleta, El Cabezo, Pto. Santa Maria, Rota.

Kitespots:

Fuerteventura – Corralejo

Corralejo is the city located in the north of the island of Fuerteventura. Playa Grande beach – is the spot near Corralejo. There you will find incredibly white sand separated by lava ledges – a honestly great view. Some less than 1km from the beach there is a bank on the seabed, causing good wave to rise up there. Of course you will want to ride it, either with kite, or SUP or classic surf!
Kite spots: Playa Grande beach
Sightseeing: Corralejo Reserve, Castillo del Toston tower, Devil’s Hollow, island of Los Lobos.

Fuerteventura – Sotavento

Sotavento beach is located in the south of the island of Fuerteventura and by right considered to be one of the best kite spots in the world, thanks to flat water of light blue color, spreading along the sandy beach of about 10km lenght.  During high tides the beach is filled with a puddle of about 1m depth – an ideal place for training beginners and learning different new tricks.
Kite spots: Sotavento beach
Sightseeing: Cactus Botanical Garden, SS American Star shipwreck.

Lanzarote – Caleta de Famara

Caleta de Famara beach is the best and probably the only spot for kitesurfing on the island of Lanzarote. Great views of Isla Graciosa island, the small islands of Chinijo archipelago, and the long cliff of El Peril will accompany you as you rip the waves. A lot of surf shops, cafes and restaurants located in the town near the beach.
Kite spots: Las Cucharas, Los Charkos, Famara.
Sightseeing: Cueva de los Verdes, the crater of El Golfo, the cliffs and the beach of Famara, the volcanic pipes of Jameos del Agua, Mirador del Rio, Volcanic park Timanfaya.

Tenerife – El Medano

El Medano is one of the two famous Canary kite spots, it is located in the south-east of Tenerife. Here you will find stable wind of about 20 knots almost every day, a nice beach of black volcanic sand, and a great view of Montaña Roja mountain.
Thanks to our mobility, we can anchor behind the Montaña Roja at Playa de la Tejita, where you can find flat water, but the wind could be more gusty. Anyway we have a dinghy with outboard engine to help you out there and bring you back if you cannot get back yourself!
Kite spots: El Medano, Playa de la Tejita.
Sightseeing: Views of Montana Roja and the highest peak of Spain – the El Teide volcano will make your kitesurfing unforgettable!
By now we have told you about some most popular kitespots in southern Spain and Canaries. But how many wild and beautiful places are hiding behind the horizon?

Frequently asked
Questions
If you go for Gibraltar Strait, the starting point can be either the city of Algeciras or the city of La Linea de la Concepcion, which is 15 minutes away by car or 30 minutes by bus. Most convenient airports in any case are Malaga or Gibraltar. If go for Canary Islands, then the starting point will for 99% be at Marina San Miguel in the south of Tenerife, so you need to fly to one of the two Tenerife airports – either north or south. The road from south Airport to marina San Miguel will take 10 minutes by taxi (30 min by bus), the road from the north airport will take about an hour by taxi, and about one and a half hour on buses. Any time we can arrange your transfer from the airport to the yacht and back for a reasonable price.
EU citizens are not required to have visa to enter either Spain or Gibraltar. If you plan to visit Morocco, you should check, whether you required to have Moroccan visa or not.
If necessary, we will help you to choose the cheapest options to get to the yacht and back.
Usually European medical insurance covers any issues which could happen during the trip (but they will not!)
Having some experience is necessary. You must be able to launch land and fly kite with confidence and safety; you must be able to restart kite from the water; You must be able to get yourself upwind without a board (body dragging); You must be able to get upwind riding the board.
If your itinerary does not include passages longer than 18 hours, experience is optional, your skipper will tell and show you everything you will need to know. If longer passages are involved, then experience is highly desirable, but anyway, we will make sure that the crew has enough of experienced people, and your journey will be as safe and comfortable as possible!
We will discuss this question during the conversation, but as a rule of thumb, the child must be at least 6 years old.
Extra expenses will include: Air tickets, airport transfer, insurance deposit, fuel, marina fees, groceries, stove gas, cafes and restaurants ashore. The skipper’s meals on board are also crew expense. Fuel, parking, food and gas can draw up to ~ 150 euros for one week. Personal expenses are easier for you to calculate yourself, but usually they draw up from 100 to 400 euros per person per week. The insurance deposit could vary from 500 to 2500 euros, it is divided for the entire crew, and if there will be no any damage done by the crew during the trip, the deposit will be returned in full. If damage is present, part of the deposit will be deducted, according to the scale of damage.
You can transfer your reservation to any third party. If this is not possible, then, unfortunately, 50% of the cost of the trip (prepayment) will be withheld.
First of all – please DO NOT use hard suitcases for your stuff. Please use soft suitcase or soft bag, because the space on the yacht is limited, and it will be hard (actually impossible!) to find a place for 6 or 8 big hard suitcases. In the summer usually you take with you 2-3 change of summer clothes (shorts/t-shirts, socks, etc.), and one set of clothes for protection from a foul weather (if you don’t have yachting clothes then good ski/snowboard shell jackets and pants will also do nicely). In the winter in addition to this bring at least one warm sweater, and if possible a set of thick thermo-underwear, as well as a beanie – nights can be quite cool (15c or even lower). If you get fresh weather in the sea, it will not be hot either, for sure. You will need a pair of shoes with a non-marking and non-slipping sole. Self-bathing / swimsuits / towels. Personal First Aid kit. Sunglasses and sunscreen/oil. Head-on flashlight would be very useful. As a seasickness treatment we recommend Cinnarizine (in Spain – Stugeron). For kite equipment – if you go for Strait of Gibraltar, you will unlikely need large sizes of kites; On Canaries you also usually will ride medium or small sizes.
According to statistics, seasickness happens to about 90% of people. However, if you take the seasickness pills in advance (see Previous question), it´s most likely that you will not experience discomfort. Besides almost any person gets used to rolling in 1-3 days, and does not need any pills from that moment on until the end of the trip.
Unless agreed otherwise, the cooking is handled by the crew, appointing duty in turn, or at will. Skipper can also take part in cooking at his own will.
Typically, the galley is equipped with a burner gas stove, sink, refrigerator, a full set of cutlery, a standard set of utensils (pots, pans, kettle, bowl, colander, chopping board).
Usually there are two types of cabins: Double – with one double bed and Twin – with two single beds located one above another. Also the dining table in some yachts can be lowered down, and together with the couch it forms a double bed.
During the journey, unless agreed otherwise, all crew members, including the skipper are cleaning the boat equally.
Standard electricity voltage for the onboard network on the yacht is 12V (rarely – 24V). You will have 220V in your outlets on the yacht only during the times when the yacht stands in the marina and is connected to the shore power. Nevertheless there is one or more 12V cigarette lighter sockets, so it is useful to take a car charger for your gadgets, or an inverter. It is also useful to have a 220V extender for 4-5 (or more) outlets.
By agreement we can provide on board Wi-Fi router, the cost of its rent is 20 euros per week; The cost of traffic will be about 5 euros per 1Gb. Also by prior arrangement, we can purchase local sim-cards for all the crew (or as per requested) and the traffic would be 2-3 times cheaper then.
