Hi all,

I am going to Mallorca in July and am looking for a school, preferrably in Palma where I will be staying. Essentially what I want to do is take some lessons and perhaps rent some equipment for a couple of days.

Found this beach which is supposed to have a school:

Obviously I have been searching the web like crazy but I havent been able to find contact info to one. Does anybody know if there are any an do you have a link/email/phone numbers? I did find one but the site was in german so it didnt help me much.

Thanks in advance.

Forget to go to Palma in July to learn Kite, too many people on the beach.
You have the risk to pay a penalty of 3.000eur, it's up to you....

Go to the north (Pollensa it's the place).

As the other kite fellow said, Palma, in fact Can Pastilla or Playa de Palma, are not the best option to kitesurfing from a safety point of view.
Thermal winds may start at 12 and last until 14 or 15h, blowing between 8 and 12 kts but this beach is very very crowded and the only possible way in/out is the channel in Can Pastilla.

in any case, nobody should cross the buoys which are placed are 200 mts from the beach neither try kitesurfing in the channel, a the channel it is designed just to go out or come in.
Any wrong doing or ignorance of that rules will suposse a call to the police by any of the beach users which will represent 3000 euros penalty -regardless your nationality or place of residence.

Instead, up North, in Pollensa bay there's an area authorized for the ractice and learning of kitesurfing. There is where most of local kiters go, it is near a road and you should be especially careful of not getting your lines tangled with other kiter's lines.

In fact, kitesurf in Mallorca has two periods, summer and the rest of the year. In summer there are thermal winds, both in Pollensa or Alcudia bays, mostly onshore and between 8 -16 kts generally, and in the South part of the island in Bahia de Palma also, both onshore direction, but when in the North is stronger, on the South, wind be a little lighter.

The rest of the year, things become a lot more unpredictable sometimes no wind at all, sometimes dangerous storms, sometimes good 16-25 kts, actually, most of time there are decent wind conditions depending of the kite and board you are using.

In winter you can have easily 7 to 16 Celsius. A bit of all, as you can see. If you decide to come in summer, and depending of your weight, bring 12- 21 mts kites, in my case, I use Flysurfers Speed 4 Lotus 12, 15 and 21 mts and my weight is 73 kgs.
