8 Days Private Instruction Kitesurf Camp Tarifa, Spain

SUP, Kitesurf, and Surf Camp Spain

Join High Flyers Tarifa and spend a whole week of one-to-one lessons! In this program, no sharing or waiting around - just you and your instructor all week. You will go out in the best conditions each day because High Flyers Tarifa is not juggling other clients and sessions; you and your instructor decide when it's best to go. High Flyers Tarifa teaches each stage thoroughly; they don't make claims of getting you riding by a certain hour. They know through experience that everyone is different and the conditions are always different. The most important thing is that you progress at your own pace and have the skills and confidence required to enjoy kitesurfing at each stage. But if you're learning fast - great, High Flyers Tarifa will push you on!

Instructors

Kevin Mitchem
(Kitesurfing)
Kevin is a level 2 International Kiteboarding Organization instructor. He is one of the most experienced instructors in Tarifa and he has been living and working in High Flyers Tarifa since February 2006. He has a detailed knowledge of all the best beaches for you to kite each day, the wind conditions, the town, as well as cafes and restaurants here in Tarifa and beyond. He loves the opportunities that kiting gives him to travel the world, from Brazil to Bournemouth, via Venezuela, Egypt, Morocco, and the mountains for snowkiting.

Location

Tarifa is such a wonderful place for long-term residents as well as holidaymakers. The Mediterranean diet and family life and the sense of community in this town are so special. Tarifa not only has the awesome kitesurfing conditions but also so much more to offer. With stunning scenery and spectacular views across the straits of Gibraltar to Morocco (just 12 kilometers away), you can make any day trips to Tangier, whale watching, great mountain biking, rock climbing, and horse riding on the beach to name a few things. Tarifa has a growing reputation as a gastro town, with a whole host of fabulous restaurants from traditional tapas to modern European and to a superb vegetarian restaurant. The bars and the nightlife are legendary. It’s a good thing the wind mostly comes in the afternoons.
