The kitesurf conditions around Lagos are versatile. The kitesurf lagoon Ria do Alvor, located between Lagos and Alvor offers great conditions to learn and practice kitesurfing for beginners, intermdiates and advanced riders! The southern region of Portugal is characterised by the strong Portuguese Nortada wind. The wind is funnelled in between Lagos and the Serra de Monchique and reaches our kitespot, the Ria do Alvor with an average of 20 knots, making it one of the best kitespots Portugal. The shallow and warm water invite you to practice easily and save your the first kite rides, but crazy handle-passing, kite-looping moves can be trained as well in the lagoon. We recommend taking 8-12 m kites and short wetsuits or boardshorts & lycras for advanced riders and long wetsuits for beginners (but no need to buy one, you will have wetsuite included in the price of your kite course!). We will make sure that you will enjoy kitesurfing in Lagos.
At our kitesurf camp in the Algarve in Portugal, you stay with other kite and water sports enthusiasts from all over the world. The camp house is located in beautiful Lagos town above the Meia Praia beach – thus, very close to the kite lagoon! You can sleep in a double room or multi-bed room. We also have bungalows that offer a cosy place to sleep for 2 to 4 persons.
One of the best things abut our camp is our amazing freshly made food, cooked daily by our lovely chefs! Our healthy breakfasts and dinners are already famous all over the world!
If you are still not tired of being in the water, you can relax by the pool before and after your daily kite session. In the evening, you can enjoy a cold beer, delicious cocktails and snacks at our famous camp bar, the “Baraka-Bar”. A large range of games, a billiard table, wireless internet (Wi-Fi) and a TV ensure more fun and entertainment. Within 15 minutes walking distance from our camp you can find plenty of bars, restaurants and clubs and happy crowd of young travellers.
