Kite Spots Algarve

The kitesurf lagoon Ria do Alvor, located between Lagos and Alvor offers great conditions to learn and practice kitesurfing for beginners – experienced kiteboarders can just as well pursue their self-defined learning goals in an individual kite course. The southern region of Portugal is characterised by the strong Portuguese Nortada wind. The wind is funnelled in between Lagos and the Serra de Monchique and reaches our kitespot, the Ria do Alvor with an average of 20 knots, making it one of the best kitespots Portugal. The shallow and warm water invite you to practice easily and save your the first kite rides, but crazy handle-passing, kite-looping moves can be trained as well in the lagoon. Therefore, it is not surprising that the PKRA, the world cup of kiteboarding, use to take place at the beach of Alvor, next to the lagoon.

Perfect wind conditions for kiteboarding

It is a fact that kitesurfing depends on the wind. Fortunately, our kite school & camp is located by the lagoon which is blessed with the strong Portuguese Nortada wind. Due to temperature differences, the thermal wind arises and gets accelerated by the surrounding Serra de Monchique, a chain of mountains in the western part of the Algarve. Between June and August, it accomplishes wind speeds between 15 to 25 knots in the afternoon and offers excellent wind conditions for kitesurfers of every level – even when there is no wind in other parts of the Algarve! The Ria do Alvor, our kite teaching lagoon is one of the best kitespots in Portugal! Here you can find the current wind and wave conditons.
