“Our mission is to provide the best quality teaching in the whole Tarifa”




Kasia, the founder of Gone Kiting Tarifa and qualified IKO level 2 kiteboarding instructor.

I believe that the most important is to choose the right instructor, as he or she will be there with you to maximize all of the time during the lessons.

That’s why everyone in our team shares the same life philosophy. Our instructors have a huge passion for kitesurfing but also are professional kitesurfing trainers.



Michał – has been an IKO kitesurfing instructor for 5 years and a snowboarding instructor for 10 years, so teaching is in his blood.

Kiting expertise, patience, and lot of positive energy, that’s what you can expect from lessons with Michal.

Why Kiting?

Kiteurfing  is a culture of addicts, praying for wind and the moment you get up on the board you are hooked! It will overtake your life!

Why kitesurfng? You learn to forget, be calm and relax while riding the ocean. You will smile more often and will be surrounded by happy people. Why not to to get kitesuring lessons now!?

Kitesurfing is very versatile and has no limits. You can choose to ride waves, do big jumps, cruise in the ocean or unhooked and pop tricks.

It is about adrenaline, even after years of kiting your heart will be pumping faster even when checking the wind conditions before going to the beach therefore it’s never boring.

Kitesurfing gives you opportunity to travel to the most amazing places in the world.

The fact that you can not practice this sport anytime, as you need the wind and the beach this makes kitesurfing special.

Kitesurfing is actually not that dangerous, you just need to learn all safety rules.

Kitesurfing is a lifestyle and it’s really for everyone, you are never too old for it.

It’s not difficult to learn. There is a joke amongst the windsurfing community: “What’s the difference between a kitesurf beginner and a pro?” The answer: “One week”

Kitesurfing keeps you fit. Research shows that you can burn up to 1100 calories doing 2hrs kiting, not to mention pumping up your kite in the beginning. You will be exhausted!

Kitesurfing is not that expensive, once you invest in your kite lessons and gear, afterwards the wind, beach and ocean is FREE!


Why Us

We will save your time and money!

We specialize only in Private and Semiprivate Coaching

  • Private lessons are the best way of learning. The instructor can change or adapt the exercises as necessary depending on your level.
  • Most schools advertise small groups. What they don’t tell you is that they normally operate to the maximum ratios of 4 students to one instructor. We believe in keeping groups much smaller than this and that’s why the majority of our courses are run on a 2:1 basis. Faster progress!
  • You will learn in much a safer environment, especially in crowded beaches in Tarifa.

We use Radio Helmets

  • During the lesson, you often have to be far from your instructor. Therefore using the radio you will have one hour of real coaching. 
  • Many us find it difficult to remember more than three things at once & it may not always be that easy to hear your instructor. We give you instant instruction and coaching tips when it matters most.
  • You will feel much safer and confident on the water.  The highest value for money coaching and focused on you.

Wind Conditions and Spots In Tarifa

Tarifa is the most famous kitesurfing spot in Europe, called kite surf paradise as the wind blows here all year round. In Tarifa you can find all sorts of conditions depending on the various wind directions during the year.

PONIENTE – westerly wind that blows from the sea, it usually wakes up in the afternoon from around 2 pm and blows between 10k-25k, even if the wind forecast in the summer shows 10kts, expect more due to thermal effects. This wind is side onshore at all spots in Tarifa and is normally cooler but very constant. It also brings more waves, especially in the winter.
LEVANTE – easterly wind which blows from the land, it usually blows all day and can be very strong from 15k-60k! (check spot options outside Tarifa for strong Levante). This wind in Tarifa city is offshore but in Valdavaqueros beachside shore and it can be very gusty, usually is warmer and less wavy.

All year round

Choppy in the summer, Waves in the winter, Flat – out of the season (only with full or non moon and high tide, see Rio Jara spot)

Sandy wide beaches. There is almost 10km of beaches in Tarifa.

From 15 June till 15 September you can only kite surf in Los Lances Norte and Valdavaqueros beach. At Los Lances beach with levante wind there is a rescue boat. You can buy your ticket at the beach bars.

From 12C in the winter to 38C in the summer.

Yes, all year round. 5.4mm in the winter, 3.2mm in the summer or shortly

From 7m to 12m

Tarifa is good for all levels

You can only kite surf here out of the season but there are restrictions from 15 June till 15 September


A popular spot for surfers. In front of very popular beach bar Bienestar which is open all year With levante wind is offshore, constant but very flat or with very clean waves, so only for very experienced kite surfers.

Campo de Futbol

A Spot very popular in the winter with the locals, parking, there is beach bar Club Siete but usually only open in the summer. Great with Poniente wind. Too dangerous with levante offshore wind.

Rio Jara

A Spot in front of the camping. It is very popular out of the season with Poniente wind when is with high tide we have got a lagoon there, great for freestyle. Here you can usually meet all pro riders. It is more difficult to get there but you can do upwind from Campo de Futbol. With levante wind is too offshore.

We are allowed to kite surf on these spots all year round.

Los Lances Norte Beach

There are 2 beach bars, parking also available. Very popular with Poniente wind. With levante there are rescue boats but in summer only from 15 June till 15 September.

Valdavaqueros Beach:

Good with poniente and levante all year, no boats and levante is side shore on at this beach. There are 2 beach bars. In the summer quite crowded.

Punta Paloma

The furthermost spot from Tarifa to kite (9km away from Tarifa), with beautiful sand dunes, good for beginners with levante wind, usually side shore and there is also a parking place.

Need to know!

Very important to remember that levante wind in Tarifa town is usually much stronger then in Valdavaquros or Punta Paloma, there can be a difference of 20kts sometimes. General rule is the further you go from Tarifa town the levante wind is weaker. When levante is too strong, which happens there are two other good spots to kite outside Tarifa zone. Remember there is only wind in these spots when levante in Tarifa or Valdavaqueros beach blows more than 40kts! In the warm months of the year, usully Poniente wind is stronger in Valdavaquros beach due to better thermal effects.


Located around 30 km from Tarifa towards Algercias. Good for beginners with parking and some bars. Choppy, flat or waves with side shore wind.

Canos de Meca

Located around 65km from Tarifa towards Cadiz. It is a good wave spot, better for more advanced riders. The wind here is side onshore.
