Kitesurfing in Fuerteventura

 

Kitesurfing in Fuerteventura

The windiest time in Fuerteventura is in the summer when a big high pressure stays over the Atlantic and a low over the Sahara. These combine to give reliable cross-shore winds at Flag Beach. The rising tide which bring the best waves is caused by depressions in the Atlantic which are more prevalent in Winter.

This sport, which in recent years has enjoyed great popularity all over the world, boasts a strong tradition in the Canary Islands, due to the presence of a large variety of winds of different intensities. These winds, in the case of Kitesurfing, enable you to reach high speeds that make you literally, fly over the water. Thanks to this boom today, at almost all of the spots, you can easily find all you need to do this sport: schools, equipment to rent, specialised shops… everything for both beginners and those who are most expert.

The 2 board-sports that have had the biggest impact on the island of Fuerteventura are windsurfing and kitesurfing, mainly due to the International windsurfing and kiteboarding championship that takes place every year in Costa Calma, and has been organised there on the beaches of Sotavento (Pajara) since 1985.

The ideal weather, and good windforecast and wind conditions have made Fuerteventura the ideal island for kite surfing. We recommend the months from May to August for better and strongers winds conditions, even you can kite almost everyday in Fuerteventura.

Kitesurf for all levels, next to Costa Calma

In the south-east of Fuerteventura, very close to the Costa Calma, you’ll find the kitesurfing spot of Playa de Sotavento. Boasting a large area for kitesurfing, it is suitable for people of any level. The wind conditions at the beach, together with the facilities and services available for kitesurfers, such as equipment hire and purchase, make Playa de Sotavento one of Fuerteventura’s most popular spots.

Sotavento also has a huge and flat tidal lagoon, other than that, in the open sea, its an only experts kiters spot. The wind direction is usually side-off, but the lagoon works well with all winds, but usually gets “gusty”. You better check the Lagoon tide level before driving all the way there.

A spot included in the PWA World Cup

This spot is especially popular thanks to the PWA (Professional Windsurfing Association) Windsurfing & Kiteboarding World Cup, which it welcomes every year. The strongest, most constant winds on Sotavento beach are found during spring and summer, which can reach speeds of over 50 knots in a north-easterly direction. The waves, which break very close to the shore, do very little to change the fact that getting into the water at this beach is very easy for everyone, no matter what level.

The Kite Beach in Corralejo

This beach, with original name “Punta Prieta”, is nowadays better known as Flagbeach. This beach is exposed to the prevailing trade winds in spring and summer. It receives moderate waves and has excellent conditions fun kiteboarding sessions.
This beautiful beach is part of a protected area, facing the island of Lobos. With its gentle waves that break on different peaks it is an ideal spot for kiters of all levels and ages.
