There are two wind directions in Tarifa called Poniente and Levante . Poniente is a wind coming from the Atlantic Ocean ( onshore) and it creates nice waves . Levante is coming from the Mediterranean Sea (offshore) and is much stronger and more gusty. This last one provide us flat water conditions. There are 8km of coast to practice kitesurf from Balneario spot with flat water with Levante wind to Valdevaqueros spot perfect for both winds and with the safest conditions. You can always choose the best spot depending on your level and the wind conditions. The best sizes with poniente normally from 7mts till 12mts and with levante from 5mts till 9 mts.
Tarifa is the southern most tip of Europe, where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic Ocean, and at its narrowest point it is just 8 miles across the Strait of Gibraltar to Africa (Morocco). Because of its geological position the wind, Tarifa is the perfect destination for lovers of water sports. Tarifa’s wild coastline attracts surfers and nature-lovers alike. Just as famous for its bird watching as its surfing, there are endless opportunities to explore the rolling countryside. Horse-riding,ciclying and rock-climbing are the most populars. Tarifa became an important city back in the 10th century, under the rule of Abd-al-Rahman III, when the caliph castle that we find in the historic quarter was built. The influence of the Arab period can be seen in the present appearance of the city, with narrow, winding streets.
