The stunning city of Viana do Castelo forms the backdrop just a few kilometres away from this brand new spot on the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour.
The event has now finished with an exciting conclusion, seeing an action-packed final day decide the result. Here’s the action video and you can read the full report here. Scroll down on this page to see the Portugal results ladder.
There are a variety of conditions on offer in summer time and wherever else the tour goes this year, this must be one of the most impressive and open beaches we’ll see!
Prevailing cross-shore wind from the right. Thermal winds are increased when the wind is from the north and the temperature's right in the summer.
Clean flat water in the shelter of the port, with good wave and surf conditions when there's swell. In the summer expect a fun sized swell rather than more serious winter conditions. The natural horseshoe shape of the bay also means that the wind conditions are safe for all levels of rider.
This is the debut competition for the GKA Kite-Surf World Tour
2018 will produce the first winners for this event.
