During the trip, we will visit many different spots with a variety of conditions ranging from flat water lagoons to serious waves. Depending on the group preferences, we can adjust the itinerary of the locations to meet your wishes where possible. Portugal's dominant wind is the 'Nortada' (meaning strong north wind) so don’t forget to pack your smaller kites!

Portugal has a beautiful and unique coastline. From wide sandy beaches to small fisherman villages, there is a lot to discover! We will be kiting together sometimes from almost deserted beaches alongside beautiful cliffs and lush green mountains. As part of the trip we will even take in the scenery on a downwinder adventure. The Portuguese are very friendly and welcoming people and in a short period of time you will make true friends. We also have one of the best cuisines and some of the best wines in the world for you to enjoy. You may come here to kitesurf, but you can easily take advantage of the vast additional attractions and sports (like paragliding) that Portugal has to offer.
We will pick you up at the international airport of Porto where the journey starts, heading South.
From the beach of Moledo in the North, to the beach of Alvor in the South, you will visit many places with perfect waves, as well as lagoons with butter flat water. During the trip you'll have the possibility to do three different downwinders of 10 to 20 km each!
Our team’s goal is to kite only at the best spots with the best conditions along the extensive Portuguese coastline. Our vast experience and knowledge of reading and predicting weather forecasts will ensure that you will be at the right place at the right time.
Each night you will enjoy our famous Portuguese cuisine and discover many great places to hang out or party.
At the end of the trip we will return to Esposende, a nice small city close to Porto. You will have the option to stay on for an extended holiday with us at our affordable guest house.
There is one fixed schedule trip per month (except in July & August) which will take place for bookings of one person or above. Other dates and group bookings are available on request.
Portugal has some of the best spots to offer but often they are located in small villages with few options of accommodation. As kitesurfers we have found an alternative solution to allow us flexibility to move according to the best forecasts. In our opinion, the motor-home is the best solution combining comfort and flexibility. We can be in the right place at the right time and have all the comfort of a home! You will be hosted in a fully equipped campervan with single and twin beads and your own storage space. It's like staying in a hostel... with wheels! At the end of your kite day nothing beats staying next to the water enjoying a sunset barbecue in close contact with nature!
Accommodation in a shared motorhome

The Trip was awesome!!! We liked it very much! Luckily we had the motorhome, otherwise we would not have Kited that much as the weather was not really promising… :-) Plus we saw a lot of Portugal, which we wouldn’t without the Motorhome. So all together it was just an amazing Trip!!!! We slept always on the most amazing spots and when you get up, it was only 2-5m to the sea. Also our Guide did an awesome job! We had a lot of fun with him and he knew always the best places to go, not just for kiting, also for eating good food or having a fun night out.
I might seem over enthusiastic with my ratings, but they are well deserved. The motor home changes everything. If we would have stayed in Esposende during that week, we would have had rain, little wind and not much to do and see (we were very unlucky with the weather). Thanks to the motor home we saw a large part of Portugal, met plenty of great people on the way, and could kite on beautiful flat water lagoons in the sun. The guide was very professional and helpful. He always had a good plan in case there was no wind. I can absolutely recommend this trip to anyone that wants to get to know Portugal and improve his/her kiting skills by kiting in some of the best spots in the country.
This was a fun camping/kiting holiday. It was great having a driver/guide who knew which spots were open or closed, and where the best chance of wind was. Miguel, our diver/guide was a entertaining host, an excellent cook, & solved any problems that arose with humour & cheerfulness.
