Flag Beach kite spot in Fuerteventura

Europe kitesurf spot in Spain

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.

You’ll need to be careful at low tide as there are sharp volcanic rocks all over, so particularly when jumping, or entering and exiting the water you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled and keep a safe distance. Booties aren’t the worst idea if you are learning or not yet 100% comfortable with your kite flying abilities. Generally through the summer you’ll be fine with just shorts and a t-shirt for kitesurfing, but early and late season a wetsuit would be advisable. In the winter here you can s...
