The year 2015 has been very turbulent in pro kiteboarding, where the PKRA tour got a new owner and name, VKWC, and a lot of events were canceled. Not to mention the seemingly never-ending fight between VKWC and IKA about the rights to crone a freestyle world champion.

Tarifa is one of the first choices for kitesurfing in Europe because of its wind probability and outstanding kitesurf culture. It is easy accessible from Malaga or Sevilla, there is a lot to do in Tarifa, and the kitesurfing is always on.

Tarifa is a treasure chest for kitesurfers, but kind of hard to open. It is always windy in Tarifa, and you can always kite somewhere.

In early 2015 we felt that we had enough of Finland. Once again. We started to think about places we could escape to for a while and found Tarifa to be a good match. Here is the kitesurfing video from our time there!

Hi there, I am heading to FV in July. I am a very expereinced kitesurfer (15 years), and predominatenly like kiting waves. I know summer is not as good for waves as winter, but do you have a recommendation on what the best spots are for potential surf? Thank you so much and great work on the blog. Good winds.

Kitesurfersblog 2016.26.2
Thanks! Yes it is definitely worth a visit, but I would maybe recommend to visit in the summer / autumn when it is "high season" for the wind, since the wind was quite unstable during february this year. We kited maybe half of the days. In the summer it is supposed to be wind every day. On the other hand, the wind is also more gusty in the summer, and spots more crowdy. It just depends on what you like! :) Good luck travelling! - Comment!

Kitesurfing in Fuerteventura

Jonathan Björkskog 2016.17.2
Hi! For April I think the north coast works well, by living in Corralejo for example. Then you can kite every day at Flag beach, and some days you can head down to Cotillo lagoons. These should be good for beginners. If you want to go to the big kite center in the south, to Sotavento, that works too. There they also have good kiteschools. I hope you enjoy Fuerteventura! :) - Comment!
