    FUERTEVENTURA  

 

la isla de nos almas

 

With its Mars-like volcanoes and mountains and long stretches of wild, lonely beaches, Fuerteventura feels like piece of another world that somehow fell to Earth.

Part of the Canary islands, it enjoys more than 300 sunny days per year and a 90% chance of 20 knots trade winds during the summer months.

 

 

For kitesurfing

– beginners & freeriding at Flag Beach

– wave riding at El Cotillo & La Pared

– constant trade winds, blowing north-to-south
 

For everybody

Oasis Park Fuerteventura, one of the largest zoo in Europe

Acua Water Park & urban fun in Corralejo

– wide beaches and diverse restaurants in Morro Jable

– exquisite seafood 

 

For the explorers

– chase the day from sunrise on the east cost to sunset on the west coast

– feel like a time-traveler 100 years back to Cofete, one of the most secluded and beautiful beaches on the planet

Gear you need

 

Kites

Fuerteventura offers you the chance to ride in many wind conditions. A typical 75kg rider will mostly use 8m at Sotavento and 10m at Flag Beach and El Cotillo.

Size up or down depending on your weight and skill level.

 

Wetsuit

Ocean water is a bit colder than you might expect, around 18-20 degrees. A 2mm shorty might be useful, especially for early morning or late evening sessions.

 

Sun protection

There are 300+ sunny days on the island in a year, so be prepared to soak in a lot of sun. Use a rashvest or lycra, sunglasses and good sunscreen.

 

Getting to Fuerteventura

 

Flying is the easiest way to get on the island. 

Once there, we’ll use local car rentals to travel to the kite spots or to explore the island.

 

The most popular flights to Fuerteventura fly from Barcelona, Madrid, Milano, London, Munchen or Amsterdam. So it may require a stop-over to get from your home airport to our destination.

 

Our kite camp dates are a bit flexibile, so you can travel 8-18 july for example. This might help you find better flights. Please confirm availability with us before booking any flight tickets.

 

Travel tips

– pack light, you don’t need too many clothes; the weather is superb

– if you have your own equipment, you can put everything you have in the boardbag

– for couples or groups, sharing the hold luggage is your cheaper option; put all your clothes in one person’s normal luggage, and all equipments in the other person’s boardbag

– if you don’t have your own kite gear, even better – we’ll provide it!
