    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 (1st and 2nd level) since 08 / 09 and a Spanish kitesurf instructor certified since 2007.

This retreat will take place in the heart of Tarifa village. 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 kitesurfer’s paradise.

Tarifa is surrounded by four protected natural areas, Los Alcornocales Natural Park, El Estrecho Natural Park, Playa de Los Lances, and Duna de Bolonia. 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.

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 creates 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!

    "THE great Kite experience in Tarifa!"

    "I love mountain and snow, I really do, but the possibility to learn and enjoy kitesurfing at the end of February with Freeride Tarifa convinced me: forget about the horrendous ski lift queues and expensive ski pass and experience the freedom of kitesurfing in a beautiful natural landscape. Water, wind, waves, the board and you :-)! Olivier gave me the perfect advice to start, learn and improve, and I'm not particularly talented but I achieved to navigate in both directions, pass over waves and even practiced some jumps! I have to admit that it can be quite impressive to kite with Tarifa's wind so I definitely recommend to get classes from FreerideTarifa to be safe but wow, it's a really fun & great experience! I wish you a great time there, all year long ;-). Personally, I will repeat it, again & again..."

    "Après une mauvaise expérience dans une des écoles de kite les plus "connues" et pourtant très moyenne, on est arrivé chez Freeride Tarifa pour quelques jours parfaits (pourtant les conditions climatiques étaient moyennes). Professeur super sympa, très bon pédagogue. Ils sont toujours dispo et te permettent d'évoluer à ton rythme. A recommander. C'était super. A refaire!"
