Question: how illegal is it really, to go kiting in the north shore lagoons?
I kited there last october/november.... no signs of guardia civil chasing people off on any of those days. They would drive by stop, and enjoyed looking @ my kiteloops, smile and wave and then carry on.
By chance, I happen to be in Corralejo again now and will be staying till the end of june. what are the odds of the guardia herassing a happy kiter now? Offcourse going out there in the weekends is not done.
Btw I do agree on that Fuerte is not a beginners kitesurf destination, sotavento sucks big time, unless you really want to get torn apart..
Also (as an experienced instructor, with 14 years in the business) I strongly reccomend not to take kitelessons anywere on Fuerte, a total tourist rip off, you learn next to nothing and safety standards are below key.
As for the more experienced dudes and dudettes amongst us, Fuerte is a wallhalla!!! Every thing from 3 to10 m waves down to butter flat and pumping winds of above 25 kts. It really has become my favourite European kite holiday destination. Hasta la huego y buenas olas!
