Meet the Poniente and Levante wind

Tarifa is located on the Strait of Gibraltar. Here it can sometimes be quite windy and we call this the Levante wind, which can reach 30-35 knots. Then we also have the Poniente wind that blows from the other direction and averages between 12-20 knots. Ideal for water starters and people who want to practice new tricks! The weather in our winter months in Tarifa is mild, around 20 degrees. Bring a T-shirt, sweater and wetsuit 🙂

 

variety of unique kitespots

Tarifa, a world famous kite spot. There are several kite spots in and around Tarifa. Los Lances is the beach before Tarifa and here is where the most kiting takes place. Then in the winter you have a beautiful lagoon that fills up and there are plenty of other spots we can drive to! Don’t forget the world spot Balnerio where all the pro kiters train for their mega loops!

In May 2024 we participated in Sailing & Kitesurfing on the Wadden Sea. Had booked alone and was certainly not the only one. What a nice diverse group of people. The organization immediately makes you feel welcome, has everything in order and knows how to throw a party.In the end we kited less than we had hoped due to wind strength and direction. But the atmosphere on the boat, the Wadden Islands and sailing across the Wadden Sea made it a great weekend!

Last weekend I went to the Wadden with Kite Active for the Sail & Kite trip. It was a wonderful weekend away. Skipper Roel welcomed us warmly on his boat and the vibe was very relaxed. We followed the wind all weekend to be able to kite. The guidance was great, the atmosphere was good, the food was delicious and the other kiters were very pleasant. Highly recommended!

We went on a trip with KiteActive. It was fun. The boat left Franeker on Friday, but we were allowed to come and spend the night on Thursday. We went to Vlieland but there was no wind there. Luckily we had a ball and we could play volleyball. We also swam. Later there was some wind, but not enough. Then we went back to the boat for dinner, which was very tasty. And then in the evening we had a beer. Some took two or even three. At night the water gave light, it is called Zeevonk and was very beautiful. And then we went to sleep. The skipper had secretly sailed away. In the morning we came on deck and were near Terschelling, that was crazy. There was more wind, which was great, but it came from the wrong side. Fortunately, Felix knows a bus gentleman and the van arrived quickly. We went kite surfing on the northern beach. That was really difficult in the waves. Some could do better. Afterwards everyone was tired and we took a siesta. After dinner (yummy again) everyone was suddenly a pirate: it was a pirate party. There was also a smoke machine and DJ Thomas played poffertjes and crackers music. Then we went to the pub in pirate costumes. The other people thought that was strange, but we no longer did. On Sunday we sailed quietly back to Franeker. We went sailing, which was quiet because the engine was off. There were also two seals on board. One is called Ellie and the other is Skip. We also got pancakes in the afternoon. When we moored there was a heavy thunderstorm and everyone was wet. That wasn't a problem because everyone had a good time. I want to come again next time.

I joined KiteActive on the TV TAS 2022 downwinder. For me it was a long lasting dream to kite along the wadden islands and the trip really was a mindblowing experience. Now a week later, I still feel stoked!KiteActive managed to organise the trip in a safe way by having a large team of pro-kiters on the water who were able to perform rescues in case of any emergency, a RIB with an experienced crew who looked after us during the crossings and safeTRX watches which could be used to alert the coast guard.The downwinder lasted only 2 days, but it felt like a complete holiday. Kiting in between groups of hunderds of seals, while having a full rainbow on the background in the direction we were sailing, just sketching one of the pictures in my mind which will never fade away. Flat water spots, nice waves to play in, 4m swell during crossings, a nice combination of all sort of conditions. A trip of a lifetime.A big thanks for the KiteActive team, looking forward to the 2023 edition!

In 21 years of kiting this was by far my best Kite Experience ever. Riding out the TVTAS-downwinder was a huge challenge which I was Able to complete thanks to the Kiteactive team. Always making sure of our safety in very challenging conditions. 4m High Waves and very Strong currents were but of a few conditionaliteit to mention. But Above all their carefull planning and Knowledge of the North Sea and currents made for a safe yet exhilarating kiteadventure. A true challenge for kiteboard-experts only.Thanx Kiteactive-team. I had an awesome time.

Last weekend I did with Kite active the most ultimate downwinder of the Netherlands, which is TV TAS. With this downwinder you pass by all 5 wadden Islands, which are Texel, Vlieland Terschelling, Ameland and Schiermoniksoog. The downwinder was actually even longer, because we started from the mainland of the Netherlands, at Den Helder instead from Texel. Even though it's a 2 days kitesurf trip, it's been the best kitesurf trip for me so far. The thrill of passing all the wadden islands which is world heritage UNESCO, is a undescribable experience. The trip itself was very good organised bij the people from Kite active. They are very experienced kitesurfers, and they know the area very well. They are very friendly, give good briefings, and this not only at the start, but also at several other locations where necessary. Alse the hotel on Terschelling was very nice. The boat trip back, and the bus back to Den Helder was perfect organised.Be aware to be an experienced kitesurfer. Don't under estimate it, it's great if you're an advanced kitesurfer with enough experience to kite in big waves on sea. Despite the advanced level of all kiters in the group, we had to wear a Safetrx whatch for our safety. Which really made this trip possible and safe.
