Spain - Sotavento Beach

Sotavento beach has been a windsurfing and kitesurfing destination since the very beginning, and hosts events of both the windsurfing and kitesurfing world tours. It’s reliably windy thanks to the geography, it’s warm, has a European vibe and it’s only a short flight from most of Europe making this a perfect year round kiteboarding destination. The wind can be strong and gusty here in the summer as it funnels down between the two mountains, and on the beach it blows cross offshore which means all the local kite schools offer rescue facilities, you’ll just have to pay for them. Fuerteventura means “strong wind” and Sotavento is no exception to that, being even windier than the spots in the North of the island.

Spain - Jandia Beach
Jandia is famous for its beautiful nature reserve filled with flora and fauna. But the reserve is not complete without its white sandy Jandia beach. It is one prominent kitesurf spot on the south-western coast of the Canary Islands. The island itself is an appealing destination due to its mild and comfortable weather all year round. Jandia beach is no exception to that climate. You'll find many freestyle wind and kitesurfers gathering here every year because the annual championship takes place at Playa de Sovento, which is merely 5 minutes away from this beach. Surfing on the tides may take you a bit afar when you can witness village fishers working in the shallow water.

Spain - Matas Blancas

Matas Blancas is one of the top kite spot in Fuerteventura because of the flat water in the bay and the pumping cross offshore wind. Advanced kitesurfers will love the flat water which is ideal for freestyle and wakestyle riding, while beginners will need to take lessons with a boat or jetski on hand. The beach boasts great white and golden sand, flat water, and soothing breezes which makes it perfect for anyone wishing to rejuvenate. Showers, toilets, changing rooms, vaults, shaded and quiet spaces, music, and anything else you need to make your vacation a little more beautiful are all available at the kite centre on the spot, so what else do you need. The rugged terrain makes Matas Blancas one of the most tranquil and relaxed kitesurf spots in Fuerteventura, but it can get crowded with kitesurfers and windsurfers wanting to make the most of the flat water.

Spain - Playa El Medano
One of the few Kite Spots on tenerife with direct access and high wind probability due to the Passat wind. Also, the tourism is right on the promenade, which is very well separated by a small path. If you are looking for a Kite Spot not far from bars and cafes, this is the place for you. Not only the Kite Spot in El Medano has made the place known, but also its dignified flair and laid back style has driven kiteboarders and surfing friends here. The bay offers enough space for schools that teach near the beach, and kitesurfers, who can even drive out to the open sea. Here you will also find smaller waves that break on a small reef.

Spain - Palmones
The flatwater Kite Spot Palmones is located in the famous bay of Gibraltar in Spain, which extends to the city of Algericas. The best kite wind is almost 50% year round with the Levante wind comes sideonshore a little less strong than in Getares and Tarifa. Every few days the wind changes from Poniente (West) to Levante (East). There is a sandbar at the lagoon, where the small waves in front of the river mouth are breaking. The kitesurfing season in Palmones is mainly in the warm summer months, when a shorty is sufficient. Kiteboarding in Palmones is not so well known and visited due to its location next to the famous Kite Spot Tarifa. So if you want to connect the city with a sophisticated kiteboarding spot, is right here.
Kitesurfing in Palmones invites you with a partially beautyful natural sandy beach setting at the river mouth of Rio de las Cañas O Palomes . But with a drop of bitterness caused by the industrial harbour and the cargo ships nearby. Watch out for the jellyfish in the summer.

Spain - Sotavento Lagoon

Sotavento lagoon is a huge lagoon on the Canary island of Fuerteventura which only fills on high tides, so check the charts before you plan your trip to make sure there will be water here during the day! The wind here comes down between two mountains creating a funneling effect, which means the wind at Sotavento is generally a lot stronger than other spots on the island, and offers some of the most consistent windy days on Fuerteventura. It’s been a windsurfing and kitesurfing mecca for many years now and with short flights from Europe, warm weather and great food it’s easy to see why.

Spain - Famara

With huge cliffs overlooking the beach, steady trade winds through the summer and surf all year round it’s no wonder people are taking notice of Famara for kitesurfing and surfing. Peak Season for kiteboarding in Famara is in June, July and August but it can be done any time of year, you’ll just want a thicker wetsuit in the winter. The beach of Famara is home to multiple kite schools which teach kitesurfing. There are no obstacles in the ocean, no rocks or reefs: only infinite beaches and sandy beach breaks. In addition, the wind and waves are onshore so they tend to bring you back safely to the beach, so there are no major concerns. When you arrive, you'll find a massive beach spread along a curved beach and offers stunning views of the hulking seaside cliffs, the white-washed village of Farmara and the wind-whipped surf which has made this beach so popular among kitesurfers.

Spain - Flag Beach

Flag Beach is probably one of the most popular spots in Fuerteventura due to the relatively flat water in the summer and a large open beach with plenty of space for loads of kitesurfers to safely ride together. It’s also located really close to the popular tourist town of Corralejo which offers restaurants, bars and parties depending on what kind of holiday you are looking for. The wind in the summer is very consistent here with the North East trade wind plus a thermal effect from the island itself ensuring that you’ll most likely score some epic kitesurfing. Fuerteventura is only a short flight from most of Europe and with cheap flights and holiday deals it’s easy to see why kitesurfers flock here year round.

Belgium - Oostende

Oostende can offer some great kitesurfing conditions if you get the conditions right, but like a lot of Northern Europe the most difficult thing is for all the stars to align, and to have sun, waves, wind and tide all on your side! It’s not really a beginner friendly kitesurfing spot as there can be a reasonably strong current and the waves can get quite powerful, but if you know what you’re doing there’s fun to be had here. The apartment blocks overlooking the beach don’t exactly offer the most attractive backdrop, and you’ll need to be aware of the wave breakers scattered up and down the beach, but if you’re in the area and the forecast looks promising then why not head down and enjoy it? It will work for kitesurfing in wind directions from South West round to North East, with North West blowing straight onshore.

Germany - Gollendorf

Fehmarn on the Baltic sea in Northern Germany is well known for kitesurfing, hosting the world cup each year and being the spiritual home of Core kites. The kite spot at Gollendorf offers a large lagoon with shallow water, perfect for anyone looking for flat water to practice, from total beginners up to professional kitesurfers. Being in Northern Europe it’s not a kite spot which is always windy, but since it works in multiple wind directions you can generally grab a session here if there is wind in the forecast. The summer can be nice and warm on Fehmarn but the winters are bitterly cold, so even though the wind statistics are better in the winter it’s only the hardiest kitesurfers that will want to venture out at that time of year!

Watch out for the large rocks on the edge of the water, particularly when entering and exiting the water for kitesurfing. Beginners might be more comfortable launching their kites while already standing in the water.

The Meltemi wind which blows from May until October means there is wind most days, so the lack of local amenities won’t be a problem as you’ll probably spend all of your time on the water anyway.

Morocco - Dakhla Speed Spot

Speed spot in Dakhla is probably the best known freestyle kiteboarding spot in Morocco, with a huge area of butter flat water at low tide, and pumping wind almost every day during the season. The wind blows directly offshore so it’s not a beginner kite spot, you need to at the very least be able to kitesurf upwind, and being comfortable with how to self rescue is definitely helpful too! If you come from one of the kite accommodations some offer a boat rescue service but not all, so it’s worth checking how it works before you head out kitesurfing. It’s a stunning and remote spot in the middle of the desert, but it’s amazing and there's a good reason for its popularity.

The easiest way to get there is with a boat, 4x4 or get a ride with a tractor out to the spot, just remember the tide will come in at some point so leave any belongings in a high and dry place. You can also just kite over to speed spot, it will just require a bit of a downwind and then upwind slog but it’s very doable.
