We love teaching kitesurfing in Scotland but it’s good to pack just shorts and t-shirts and head over somewhere sunny! We’ve just came back from our first this season trip to Tarifa, Spain, with the next one coming up in February (check it out here!). It’s an amazing place – warm waters, constant winds and incredible food to refuel after whole day on the water.
It’s also a true kitesurfing mekka, especially during summer with hundreds of kiters taking to the water. After years of kitesurfing in Scotland we very much prefer less air traffic. Think of it as Three Airport vs Heathrow. There are days at our local spots – Longniddy near Edinburgh or Troon near Glasgow, when 12 kitesurfers on the water equals “busy day”. Hence why we avoid summer crowds and travel down south outside the season. It’s still very mild and way less congested. Here’s how our stay looked like in November!
