I heard that kitesurfing has been banned in Spain, notably the Costa Brava, does anyone know about this?

I heard it about Costa Brava, on the other hand I can say that nothing similar occurred in Tarifa where kitesurf is admitted and pushed further. Friday I will be there till the end of August,so if there's something new I'll let you all know! Bye

Thanks. Having been to both areas I think Tarifa wins hands down for kiting anyway :smile:

Officially, kiteboarding has been banned (forbidden) at the Costa Brava on (!!) December 24, 2001!!
Unofficially, you could do it during the low season (NOT July and August!!) at the beaches of St. Antonii, Pals and St. Pere Pescadore (approx. 80-100km north of Barcelona).
Be careful during the high season July and August. The cops might cause some trouble, especially when the beaches are packed with tourists!!!

Take care!
