What Makes Us Different:


partners

Tarifa is a better location for learning to kitesurf in the winter than it is in the summer.

The beaches are empty and the weathers great.

So you’ve got as much space as you could want to make mistakes and learn without worrying about tangling lines with other people.

At this time of year we also have unbridled access to all the possible spots up and down the coast (as there are no sunbathers or beach restrictions in place) so the chances of you getting out on any given day increase dramatically. As if there’s no wind (or more often too much wind!) we simply drive to where it’s better.

What about the temperature and wind?

We’re blessed in Tarifa with a great climate and even in the depths if winter it doesn’t drop much below 18-23 degrees in the day, with clear skies (and most importantly wind!). Last new years day we were at a BBQ on the beach in just boardies and bikini’s.

We also do not rely on traditional weather systems for our wind (instead the Straits of Gibraltar create our very own wind tunnel) and so Tarifa is one of the few places worldwide to truly get wind all year, what’s more in the winter the prevailing wind is the much more pleasant Poniente wind, which generally blows about a force 4, cross onshore and is as constant as it comes.

WIND, WIND, WIND!

In The Most Consistently Windy Kite Spot On Earth

LearnToKite

The elephant in the room on any kitesurfing holiday (and the major reason why most people struggle to learn to kitesurf) is the wind. Thats why we've picked the most consistently windy spot on the planet to teach you to kitesurf. Tarifa has 300 kitesurf-able days of wind a year (and even more with sun!).

To have 2 days in a row of no wind is VERY unusual here. This is why we are able to offer our No Wind...No Pay policy...as we're so confident in the wind performing!

GET YOUR OWN KITE

Make The Most of Every Breath of Wind

kitesurf-lessons

Once you have managed to get out on the water the other major problem that people suffer from is that they may be sharing the kite with another person or have to work around the school's schedule.

The school most likely has many other lessons to give that day and so have just assigned a time slot to you, often days before, which may be the time when the wind and conditions are best for you but…

All too often is just a time that works for them so they can get through their backlog of students.

Now we’ve already said that the major problem most people suffer from in learning to kite is aligning their free time with the wind so when you actually manage to do this you HAVE to…

Make the absolute MOST of every precious breath of wind.

The major problem most learners face is that they are forced to share the kite with another person.

Straight away this means if they have a 3 hour lesson they are only getting 1 1/2 hours actually flying the kite...

BUT…

When you add in waiting around for your partner, sorting out line tangles and swapping the kite back and forth this can be more like 1 hour.

What’s more your instructor generally has another pair of learners to look after at the same time so during the hour you are flying the kite your instructor is watching you for around half of it (as the rest of it he’s looking after the other pair).

And the worst part…

For that 1 hour of actually flying the kite and 30 mins of instruction you’ve wasted 3 hours of precious wind.

Wind that may not align with your free time for another month, if you’re lucky…

This is why 75% of people that start learning to kitesurf never actually ride.

To solve this we give your own kite so you are actually under a kite getting better every minute we're at the beach.

Combine this with the fact that we've chosen the most consistently windy kite spot on earth and we can absolutely GUARANTEE that you kitesurf in the fastest time possible.

THE RIGHT KITE FOR YOU EVERY DAY

So You Have The Perfect Setup For Whatever You're Practicing

Kite-Holidays

The other major problem we see all the time is people paired up in group lessons with someone who is either at a completely different level to them or is a totally different size to them or more normally…both.

Or that the school simply doesn't have enough kites in each size for all the people they are teaching on one day.

So what?

Let's take the example of group lessons but you can easily see how the same theory would apply to simply not having enough kites available.

In group lessons you are sharing a kite.

So let's say you (for example’s sake) are a 85 kg man who is practicing water start sharing the kite with a 60 kg woman who is practicing body dragging.

Common sense and safety here dictates the the school is going to choose a kite size that fits the woman.

If they give her a kite that is powerful enough to get you up and riding they are placing her in a fair amount of danger (though we have seen it the other way around as well!).

However by choosing a kite that suits her size they have ensured that you have absolutely no chance of EVER succeeding in actually getting up and riding because you are hugely underpowered.

We see cases just like this every day.

For this reason we not only give you your OWN KITE but also ensure that we have a huge selection of different kite sizes for you every single day.

So you’ll always be on the right sized kite for you.

NO WIND NO PAY

Simple

20140212-141631.jpg

If there's no wind you don't pay...simple.

This also means if you're at the beach and the wind drops to a point where we can't do anything you won't pay for that time either.

Most schools actually carry on teaching in these conditions pretending that it's good for you to fly kites in these conditions...

it's not.

While the wind doesn't have to be perfect, if we can't fly the kite there's no chance you can, so we'll wait until the wind is right for you, and you won't pay for waiting!

Using the teachings of some of the greatest skill hackers of our time, adding in the principles of peak performance, zone state technology, the findings of the Flow Genome Project and the results of the 15 years and 10, 000 + hours of teaching time we've racked up…

This system has been designed to get you where you want to be faster, safer and with less frustration and is revolutionising the way kitesurfing is taught worldwide.
