Kitesurfing | El Puerto de Santa María

Within the last years kitesurfing in El Puerto de Santa Maria has developed to be a very popular sport. 

The mix of wakeboarding, surfing and paragliding experiences a huge boom and the technic as well as the material have improved a lot.
In generall, we recommend to visit Chiclana outside the main season, in order to fully enjoy the wind, waves and beach.
Kitesurfing is quite easy to learn, but we recommend still to go to a professional kitesurfing school to safely be thaught the basics and the safety aspects.

 

Spots for kitesurfing in El Puerto de Santa Maria

 

Kitesurfing with western wind (Poniente)

The western wind Poniente arrives side-onshore and brings 4-6 Bft. depending on the time of the year.  Small to medium size waves come with the Poniente providing perfect conditions for beginners and advanced riders.
For Poniente kites between 12 and 16m² are recommendable. 
Para navegar con viento del Poniente recomendamos una cometa de tamaño 12 - 16 m2. 


Kitesurfing spot:  Beach Playa de Fuentebravía

This is the main beach in El Puerto de Santa Maria and it is always worth a session. The bay provides perfect conditions with interesting water as the onshore wind create nice waves to play with.
Especially in the winter months the waves can be quite big here, mostly just after a big storm hit the northern Atlantic.
There is also a nice offer to have a beer after your kitesurfing day in one of the beach bars.

Kitesurfing with eastern wind (Levante)

While windsurfers love the strong Levante, kitesurfers used to avoid this wind in the early days of the sport. 
Mostly, Levante reaches bewteen 6 and 9 Bft. and its direction is offshore. Levante demands a very high level of kitesurfing skills.
With small boards and kites of the latest generation Levante can be still a lot of fun and a great challenge.

You should generally keep in mind:

  •     Levante blows side-offshore (crossing against the wind is a must)
  •     Levante more gusty than Poniente
  •     Levante builds up quickly and gets very stong

 

Kitesurfing spot: Beach Playa de Valdelagrana

Just next to the natural park Los Toruños we recommend the beach Playa de Valdelagrana for practicing kitesurfing.
The beach is very long and wide what makes it ideal for this sport. In the water there is enough space for everyone. But be careful with Levante wind here, these days are not auitable for beginners as the wind is offshore.
