In 2018 the Jeep Tarifa Pro played host to both the Kite-Surf World Tour and the Kiteboarding World Tour in a huge Grand Slam combo-event! In 2019, both tours will return to Tarifa – the kiteboarding capital of Europe!

Formidably strong winds mix with a vibrant and energetic Andalucian crowd, all frothing at the next level tricks that are regularly stomped close in to shore. If it’s an electric ‘football stadium’ style atmosphere and huge levels of fun you’re after, come join us for this one!

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 will be the sixth year of the Jeep Tarifa Pro and you can expect a top turnout of both riders and fans!
