Wind forecast

Prevailing winds

The kitesurfing capital of Europe has grown in immense popularity after it became a popular windsurfing hub in the 1980s. Having retained its old world charm, it's the infamous Levante and Poniente winds that really entertain all the wind seekers. The Levante blown from the land, cross offshore from the left and can be strong, up to 40 knots and often blows for five days straight. The Poniente is the more mellow wind, cross onshore from the right. It's cooler and more frequent in summer and can blow between 15 - 25 knots for a two or three days in a row. This event has often seen both winds create intense competition conditions!

Water conditions

Although Tarifa can get good wave conditions in the winter months, in the summer, expect wind chop that provides superb ramps for the strapless freestylers to boost off. Landings can be tricky in the gustier, stronger Levante winds and choppy waters, but it's all part of the game in separating the best from the rest!

Competition history

This is the fourth year of the Tarifa Strapless Pro and you can expect a top turnout of both riders and fans!
