Europe Sports Mecca

Called european wind Mecca and located in the southest point of Spain, Tarifa, is one of the most beautiful towns of Andalucia. Flow thorough the east from the Mediterrean Sea, flow thorough the west from the Atlantic Ocean, the city of Tarifa is separate from the Moroccan coast just from 15 kms of water.

During all over the year the winds blows constantly between Mediterrean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. The Levante wind coming from east and the Poniente wind coming from west channel their power between Africa and Europe giving born to an incomparable show. The Air Mass passing through the two continents start a Venturi Effect that let winds blow up to 50 or more knots. That’s why Tarifa is one of the most impressive Kitesurfing and Surfing spots of Europe.
