Is a very lively town, you can enjoy the many bars and restaurants over there.
Depends on what you're looking for...

Have a sneaky suspicion there will be wind on the Sunday....have you checked out the feria? Make sure you're well tanked up before you go but it's a lot of fun. Apart from that there's climbing, mountain biking, land sailing, horse riding, quad biking, wake boarding just down the coast.

Hello all.

I'll go to Tarifa in 10 days, with my wife and kids.
She's got her lessons on dry land, and thus she will continue learning with body-dragging... etc.

I see there are a LOT of Schools in Tarifa, but they all propose 3h lessons minimum.
Since she is such a light-weight (42 kgs), and not sure she san handle such a long time at once (and I am pretty sure I'll have to convince her to get into the not-so-warm water also), I was wondering if anyone knew a school were the lessons would be shorter (2h max), and has extensive gear for women/kids.

Thanks.

Hi Sgallian,
I'm pretty sure you can negotiate a class there for less than 3 hours.
The teachers I met there are really friendly and will help you out.

Hello Daniele,
Well, I think that in the end, we'll go around the schools. I guess that it won't be so crowded at this time of the year, so we don't need to make a booking in advance...
I looked again at your webpage, but you did not quote which school you went to there.
Any you would recommend above the others?

Thanks.

I didn't take classes while I was there (even if I need for sure :D ) but I met different instructors.
Let me check the names again!
