KITESURFING

Kitesurfing is easier to master than it looks. Especially here in the Algarve where more often than not, conditions are perfect at our carefully chosen kite spots. Enjoy reliable wind and soak up beautiful sunshine with us over the summer months on a kite surf holiday that you won't forget...

LOCATION

It’s easy to see why kitesurfing has flourished in the Algarve over the past few years. Great wind, prime weather conditions, a beautiful landscape, and easy transport links to the rest of Europe. An ideal location for your kitesurfing holiday! 

WIND CONDITIONS

When it comes to wind conditions, the Algarve is one of the best kitesurfing spots in Europe. Portugal’s Nortrada (northerly) wind, springs up in the early afternoon from June until the end of September, creating prime kitesurfing conditions. Outside of these months, with a little careful planning and patience, we still enjoy great kitesurfing conditions often with almost no one around.
