Within the last years kitesurfing in Conil de la Frontera has developed to be a very popular sport

The mix of wakeboarding, surfing and paragliding experiences a huge boom and the technic as well as the material have improved a lot.

Spots for kitesurfing in Conil de la Frontera and Andalusia

Kitesurfen mit Westwind (Poniente)

The western wind Poniente arrives side-onshore and brings 4-6 Bft. depending on the time of the year.  Small to medium size waves come with the Poniente providing perfect conditions for beginners and advanced riders.

For Poniente kites between 12 and 16m² are recommendable.

Kite-Spot: Cabo Trafalgar, Caños de Meca

The Caños de Meca spot is a 10min car drive away from Conil, but definitely worth the effort. The bay on the left of the lighthouse of Trafalgar offers perfect kitesurfing conditions.

With western wind the water is absolutely flat on the inside of the bay and further out at the cape is where some clean waves break (especially in the winter time).

Some nice beach bars are also to be found at this spot, where you can eat and drink after an exhausting kitesurfing day.

Here some recommendations for accommodation in Conil de la Frontera and at the Cabo Trafalgar:

Kitesurfing with east wind (Levante)

While windsurfers love the strong Levante, kitesurfers used to avoid this wind in the early days of the sport. 

Mostly, Levante reaches bewteen 6 and 9 Bft. and its direction is side-offshore from the left.  Levante demands a very high level of kitesurfing skills.

With small boards and kites of the latest generation Levante can be still a lot of fun and a great challenge.

You should generally keep in mind: 

  1. Levante blows side-offshore (crossing against the wind is a must)
  2. Levante more gusty than Poniente
  3. Levante builds up quickly and gets very stong

Kite spot: Conil de la Frontera, Costa de la Luz

In Conil de la Frontera it's only allowed to kitesurf at the left side of the lagoon (past the bridge). Strong Levante in Tarifa will always show 1-2 Bft. less in Conil.

The wind direction is sideshore either way. Waves can be a challenge in the winter time between October and May.
