Instructors

Olivier Negrel
IKO Level 2 (Kiteboard Instructor)
Olivier Negrel is the founder of Freeride Tarifa. After years of traveling the globe and kitesurfing along all the best coasts, he has decided to set up a school, Freeride Tarifa, in the most famous European kite spot, Tarifa. Olivier is a professional kitesurfing teacher ​for​ more than 10 years with IKO certifications (first and second level) since 2008/2009 and a Spanish kitesurf instructor certified since 2007.

Location

This kite adventure camp will take place at Hotel La Torre in Costa de la Luz, halfway between Tarifa and the main kite spots. Furthermore, it is located between two natural parks, Parque Natural del Estrecho and Los Alcornocales Natural Park and across from the pristine beaches of fine sand of Valdevaqueros with stunning views of Africa.

Expect to see cows chilling, flocks of storks flying, and plenty of other interesting fauna and flora on land. With endless stretches of sandy beaches and plenty of nature areas, Tarifa is a hub for all sorts of watersports and the perfect place for nature lovers. Tarifa is a fortified village in the south of Spain. It’s located in the province of Cadiz, Andalusia. Tarifa is situated between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.

Its unique location means you can enjoy a beautiful blend of Spanish and Arabic cultures as it is only 14 kilometers from the tip of Morocco and placed at the most southerly tip of continental Europe. It is one of the most scenic villages in Andalusia and is well regarded as a kitesurfers' paradise. There are four main spots to choose depending on the wind conditions, Los Lances Norte, Los Lances Sur, Valdevaqueros, and Los Caños de Meca.

When the wind condition is really powerful, the main spot is Palmones Beach in Algeciras. The temperature and the sunshine regarding the rest of Europe as well as his proximity to big international airports create Tarifa's best condition to spend holidays in. At just two hours from Malaga and Seville or 40 minutes from Gibraltar, it’s easy to reach this kitesurfing hotspot!
