KITESURF CENTRE, GOLF DE ROSES
Our partner kitesurf centre in Golf De Roses is on a beautiful wide sandy beach around a 10 to 20 minute drive from our range of stunning accommodations. Rentals of the latest North kiteboarding equipment and kite surf storage are further services offered by our kite surfing centre. The fully equipped shop carries spare parts, kites, boards, accessories and the associated sportswear.
This is one of the best kitesurf school we work with offering a wide variety of watersport including SUPing, windsurf and even hydro kiting! This is also a great spot for a family holiday with use of near by restaurant and pools.
THE KITESURFING SPOT
For many years, the Bay of Roses has been known as the best kite surfing spot with the most constant winds in Northern Spain. Kite surfing conditions could not be more ideal. The thermal wind is very reliable and builds up towards midday. The fine sandy beach, interspersed with small dunes, is about 80 m wide, and the shallow-water area extends for about 30 m. The shape of the bay ensures absolute safety for kite surfers in tramuntana and thermal wind conditions; what is more, the regular winds never blow offshore.
During high season (mid June – mid September) kite surfing is only allowed for a limited number of pre-booked kitesurfers so please be sure to book early with Planet kitesurf to be sure of a place at this very populat kitesurf beach. Alternatively there is a public kitesurf beach not far away. Furthermore private kite surfers, as well as rental & storage guests, have to be able to go upwind as entry and exit of the kite surfing zone are very narrow.
We offer daily kite surfing instruction, also with the help of our motor boat, depending on the wind direction. Courses are held directly in front of the centre in the private, dedicated kite surfing zone.
In the summer months in particular, the wind conditions are ideal for beginners' instruction. The wide beach and the dedicated kite surfing zone give you enough room to fly the kite for the first time or simply learn how to launch it. Kite surfing instruction is offered in many different languages, and our kite surf instructors have international certificates.
THE WIND IN GOLF DE ROSES
The reason is the strong and steadily blowing tramuntana, which has a firm grip on wind and weather conditions in the vicinity of the Pyrenees. This wind is particularly strong in spring and autumn (with wind forces of 5-8/9 bft.) and blows side shore from the right at the kite surfing centre. The thermal wind prevails in the summer months (mid-June to mid-September). The wind comes side-onshore from the right, with a wind force of 3-5 bft.
