Flag Beach Watersports Center
Flag Beach Windsurf & Kitesurf Centre Fuerteventura
Flag Beach Windsurf Centre offers good cross-shore (from the left) conditions from March/April through to August/September. It is generally wavier for the first couple of months with the remains of the winter swells, however from May onwards the waves disappear and flat slalom conditions prevail.
Although the winter months statistically have less windy days at Flag Beach, there can be better locations within easy reach that have wind for the more advanced sailor. When there is no wind there will usually be waves so we offer body boarding and surfing as alternatives. Click Here For More Details.
We offer a wide range of tuition, from beginner up to advanced. Although Flag Beach is in fact an intermediate - advanced location, we are very lucky in that some 20 minutes drive away we have an ideal beginners teaching lagoon. All our beginner / renewal / improver courses run in this lagoon, where there is shallow (1m), protected water with a sandy bottom. This allows us to cater for everyone's needs.
All courses are run by qualified instructors, Flag Beach being one of the VDWS recognized centers. Click Here For More Details
Flag beach is in the north of Fuerteventura on the road driving out of Corralejo. The wind is predominantly cross-shore and Flag beach is the start of some 6-7 km of white sand, where we have about 3 km for kitesurfing. The best months for kitesurfing are March to November. This is when the sea tends to be flat and the wind consistent. During the winter months it can become too wavy and though it might be good on the occasional day it cannot be guaranteed. We have a team of excellent watersports instructors who not only sail, windsurf, surf, dive and kitesurf but also speak 6 languages between them. You can also feel safe in our hands as Rescue facilites are always at hand for any situation that might occur.
During the winter months we have different wind directions like onshore, offshore etc and so the only way to guarantee course completion is by using a boat. All course are then taught regardless of wind direction and teaching from a boat gives us the flexibility to move around the island to the most suitable location. Click Here For More Details
