Got some inside info about Tarifa yesterday.
Was told that in august you have to move kites out of the way to be able to get to the water, and that you could only kite in a 200 mts zone, with risk of having your kite confiscated if you step out of this zone.
Can anyone confirm these sayings?.

realtime weather in tarifa:

How it worked in the past (i can't know the future), there's a kite area and rules i never understood. When the gardia arrrives on the beach with qwads, just run in the water with your board and kite, ride 15 minutes, then they won't be there again. They are acting quite strangely, choosing a rider to explain kite is forbiden in spanish language. But there's 300 kites there. So don't worry about it and do what locals tells you.

yes, ozu has a nice weather page:


About kitezones:usually they are easter than the windsurf ones,that is to say downwind in case of poniente (the most kite-ridden wind). So there is a limited zone on the sand from where launch and land your kite,but obviously in the water you can go downwind as much as you want. On the other hand it's a good thing not to go too upwind not to find yourself lost in a 4 meter high mast forest.
Levante is much stronger,gusty and offshore so less people on the sand ,less kiters (supposed to be more expert) on the water and less problems.

I hope to hawe cleared your doubts and see you there :bye:
