Location

You will stay 5 days in Tarifa where you will have your kitesurf lessons with Freeride Tarifa. Tarifa is a fortified village in the south of Spain. It’s located in the province of Cadiz in Andalusia. It is situated between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean. Its unique location means it enjoys a beautiful blend of Spanish and Arabic cultures (at only 14 kilometers from the tip of Morocco, it’s also at the most southerly tip of continental Europe). It is one of the most scenic villages in Andalusia and is well regarded as a kitesurfer’s paradise. With endless stretches of white sandy beaches and over 300 windy days a year, Tarifa is a hub for all sorts of watersports. With miles of windy beaches and endless bars and restaurants - Tarifa is the perfect spot to eat, sleep, and kitesurfing. There are four main spots around Tarifa to choose depending on the wind conditions: Playa de Los Lances (Norte and Sur) and Valdevaqueros where you will have your courses and Los Caños de Meca for independent riders. When the wind condition is really powerful, the main spot is Palmones Beach in Algeciras.
