Are you looking for an active fitness holiday with different activities to diversify your stay? This camp is for you. Freeride Tarifa combines a morning activity such as stand up paddle boarding, mountain biking, rock climbing, and horse riding with a regular kitesurfing session in the afternoon. This program of a multi-activity holiday is the epitome of adventure. It’s a new challenge each day, whether you are learning a new skill or simply finding a fresh perspective on a new sport, you will get a whole host of adrenaline-fueled activity every day.
You are offered a stay in a surf house. You may also send an inquiry for room upgrades such as a private room, a high standing hotel, or an apartment. Please do not hesitate to specify your wishes.
This modern and minimalist surf house is based at the entrance of Tarifa close to the seaside, only a 10-minute walk from Balneario beach where you will find nice beach bars to rest after your kite session, (this beach is reserved for bathers in the summertime) and a 5-minute car ride from the main kite spot, Los Lances beach. In this surf house, rates include bed and breakfast.
All the rooms have bunk beds and safety lockers with access to a large shared bathroom. This place is perfect for solo travelers or group of friends that would like to meet other kitesurf lovers. You will also find commune areas such as an equipped kitchen, salons with television and billiards, a cafeteria-bar, a rooftop with a sea view, and free Wi-Fi throughout the building. Other services are also available, such as bike/motorbike rental, and laundry.
The communal kitchen is equipped with a fridge, microwaves, toaster, dishes, cutlery and cooking utensils, coffee machine, and washing machines. You will also find many shops (sports and food) around the property and with a 15 to 20-minute walk, you will get to the old town of Tarifa where the nightlife takes place with a wide range of tapas bars, nightclubs, and amazing restaurants.
Your daily itinerary includes one "Discovery Activity" in the morning, a lunch break to relax and recharge your batteries before starting your kitesurfing session in the afternoon.
After your morning discovery activity, you will enjoy a three-hour kitesurf lesson in the afternoon. During your stay, you will enjoy a total of 15 hours of kite lessons in group lessons up to four people. The lessons will be taught by an IKO / FAV certified instructor. During each lesson, a kite will be shared by two people so you can focus on cooperation and learn by observing your partner. You will also get your strength back during your resting time.
You will practice on Naish material which is renewed every year. You will learn the basics of this magical sport, learn how the wind works, knowledge about your equipment, how to control the kite, the body drag and the launching in the water, the control of the power, the waterstart, the good position, and the upwind with your first rides! If you are an advanced kitesurfer and you want to improve, it will be more suitable to give you courses in semi-private.
During the camp, you will practice kitesurf on the spots of Los Lances and Valdevaqueros, beautiful beaches open on the Atlantic Ocean and only a five-minute drive by car from your accommodation venue.
The "After Kite" is also a precious moment where you will share your new tricks with other kitesurf lovers over a drink and enjoying the beautiful sunset on the beach!
In case the lesson can't take place due to bad meteorological conditions, customers can choose to be refunded for the proportional part for the kitesurf lessons (the price will be re-adjusted according to the price list) or get a voucher to come back again.
