The wind blows constantly between the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean through the whole year. The Levante wind coming from the east and the Poniente wind coming from the west channel their power between Africa and Europe giving birth to an incomparable show. The Air Mass passing through the two continents creates a venturi effect that accelerates the wind speed up to 50 knots or more. That’s why Tarifa is one of the most impressive kitesurfing and surfing spots in Europe. Here you can find the best conditions in Europe for practicing or learning to kitesurf, there are wave spots, flat water and chop. The temperatures vary throughout the year with hot weather over the summer and cooler weather in the spring-winter months. A shorty wetsuit is suitable in the summer and a full wetsuit is recommended the rest of the year.
