Kiters Pack - Kitesurfing Portugal

This package is for independent kiters who want to enjoy perfect conditions and good company! The set-up in Esposende is unique, with flat water for freestyle in the river and waves for kitesurfing on the other side of the sand bar.

A NORMAL DAY

We start the day with a delicious breakfast at the villa. Our host will tell you about the day, the forecast and our plans. We will bike down to the kite center, where our boat will take us to the kite spot before the wind picks up. The spot is a river mouth with flat water in the lagoon and waves in the ocean a few meters away. Because of the limited access to the spot, there are less kite crowds and beach guests than what you will find on most other kite spots. Come back home and enjoy a cold beer in the couch after a long day in the sun with hard work. We will have dinner at one of the local restaurants and some of you will continue to the bars to check out the nightlife that Esposende offers.

What Can i expect?

The set-up in Esposende is perfect, with conditions for kiting in flat water and waves, good surf conditions, stand up paddle, skate, bike and wakeboard. You will always find great people to chill out with, whether you are on the beach, in the kite center, or in the house! A week with good conditions will definitely improve your kitesurfing by leaps and bounds. You will get hints and guidance from our staff and your fellow travellers will encourage you to improve.
