Kite Testival Tarifa

As soon as you drive past the Tarifa town sign, you will feel Tarifa's special flair. This town is all about kitesurfing and has been since the beginning.

Once experienced, you always want to go back. Here you will find one kitesurf shop next to the other. A huge sandy beach, blue sea, and absolutely reliable wind. You will learn to love the easy-going Spanish way of life and the incredibly good food while strolling through the small streets of the old town in the evening.

For a week you can test yourself across the latest top-class kite brands. We have a lot of kites, wings and boards for you: FLYSURFER, Levitaz, Ozone, North Kiteboarding, Naish, Duotone, CORE and Airush.

Kite Community nach einem tollen Tag

Another highlight: We live right in the old town of Tarifa, in our own stately palace with a Moroccan ambience, a beautiful inner courtyard and a roof terrace with a view of Africa for unforgettable sundowners. George Clooney celebrated his birthday here!

This special LakeUnited kite trip is a community meeting point. We make new friends, meet old acquaintances from our camps and test the latest material extensively. In the evening we make the old town unsafe and want to find out whether we can defeat the boss in the Bar Bossa with his gin and tonic vases on the way home. We believe: YES!   

Patrick, while planning: "This is going to be awesome. A great time!” We look forward to seeing you 🙂

Tarifa - the wind capital

Spot & wind in Tarifa

Since Tarifa is the wind capital of Europe, it is considered the hot spot for kite surfers. The endlessly long beaches, perfect conditions for surfing and the famous nightlife make the city something unique.

There are two prevailing winds here: Poniente and Levante. These provide Tarifa with sufficient moving air all year round. As a result, the wind yield is gigantic.

Are you wondering why we're going to Tarifa in autumn? The answer is simple because at this time there is less activity on the long sandy beaches and we can guarantee you a more relaxed kite surfing. Furthermore, the temperature is pleasantly mild and the wind is more than enough.

Roman style and Moroccan flair

Accommodation - A palace in Tarifa

Our accommodation is right in the center of Tarifa.

We stay in an old palace that has been converted into a small apartment house with a wonderful inner courtyard and a spacious roof terrace from which you can see as far as Morocco.

The house is fully equipped and has several kitchens with refrigerators and coffee machines. In addition, the house has free Wi-Fi - so workation in Tarifa is also an option if you are busy with work or study.

 

The latest equipment on bord

Kite Testival

If we're going to gather a community of kiters in the Mecca of kitesurfing, then the newest material has to be tested as well.

We really worked hard and organized the latest kites, wings and boards from all kite brands and manufacturers for testing. Definitely there are: FLYSURFER, Ozone, North Kiteboarding, Naish, Duotone, CORE Kiteboarding and Airush Kiteboarding.

You can spend the whole week figuring out which equipment suits you the most.

Detailed information about our Testival in Tarifa

As a kitesurfer you must have been in Tarifa. We have briefly summarized all the useful information for you.

LakeUnited takes on the role of a tour guide on the kitetrip to Tarifa. We always choose the spots according to the wind direction and also recommend the right kite for your session. So you need to worry about relatively little this week, because we do it for you.

You can test yourself through the entire "menu". Find out how a wave kite flies, which kite you jump the highest with or how these new, rather expensive lightweight versions fly. Have you ever tried wing foiling? In Tarifa you have the choice!

Our accommodation in Tarifa has several apartments and rooms. The house has free WiFi, four equipped kitchens with refrigerators and coffee machines, and several bathrooms.

The public city car park is only a few minutes away.

Meals are not included in the price. There is the possibility to prepare breakfast and small dishes yourself in the accommodation.

The motto: Tapas - tapas - tapas. In Tarifa you will find many small restaurants and bars where you can eat and drink excellently. This is even a little cheaper than here in Austria. 

We will show you the insider tips of the city and will therefore explore the culinary side together. 

Destination airport: Malaga. The trip by plane from Vienna to Malaga takes about 3.5 hours. The airline Wizz Air offers a direct flight, which is about € 250.-. 

From Malaga airport you will drive around two hours to Tarifa with your rental car. 

Rental car: You need a rental car for your stay. You can easily book this online for € 55.- for the week. Be careful with the different providers: Be sure to take out insurance cover without a deductible, etc. and maybe you shouldn't choose the smallest car. We would be happy to refer you to other participants so that you can share the rental car. 

You need a valid passport to travel to Tarifa. You may also want to make a short visit to Africa (Morocco / Tangier), then your passport must be valid for at least six months. 

By the way, Tarifa is the southernmost point of Europe and Africa is only 14 kilometers away. 

We would be happy to send you an offer for cancellation and / or travel insurance.
