Alvor Lagoon: The strong, summer Nortada wind and Alvor Lagoon's waist-deep water offer the ideal conditions to learn and practice kitesurfing in the Algarve. In the past, the PKRA Kiteboarding World Tour was held here in Alvor and it was recently praised again by world sailor, Alex Thomson Meia Praia: Perfect for trial lessons, the Meia Praia is a long, spacious beach that offers great conditions to fly power kites on land and to try out your first body drags in shallow water. However, the offshore wind makes this spot only suitable for beginners or very advanced kiters; intermediates should stay inside the safe lagoon. Wave spots: When the southwest or southeast winds blow, Meia Praia receives a great hit of swell and waves. For experienced kiters, there are also some bigger swells to be found on the west coast- as well as a handful of amazing wave spots like Bordeira, Carrapateira, and Milfontes. All of these have several kilometers of open sandy beaches and constant waves. Due to the thermic conditions, these spots are best experienced during the spring and autumn.
Our experienced staff and the windy lagoon in Lagos are the perfect combination to ensure you boost up your kiteboarding skills in no time. If you're a beginner, we'll help you realize your dream of getting on the board and making your first meters downwind. If you're experienced already, our instructors will make sure you master that extra edge and get the adrenaline pumping through your veins. When you're tired out after a full day of kiting, you can stay at our brand new Ocean Spirits Lodge where you'll have the chance to socialize, eat Portuguese food, and share your experiences with like-minded kiters.
Kite lessons are available for all levels and ages (from 14 to 75); professionalism, security, and fun are guaranteed. All of our instructors are experienced and have international VDWS and IKO certificates. We use brand new equipment from the market leader, North Kiteboarding.
