Kitesurfing conditions in Famara beach

Years ago Famara beach was famous only for surfing. There was no activity in other sports. Maybe windsurfing but conditions can be pretty hard with big swell and shore break. Than kiters came and found out that with NE Alisios trade wind, 6 km long sandy beach, Famare is the perfect spot to practice kite (wave or freestyle kiteboarding). The trade winds blow at their strongest and are more constant in the summer time (from March until August) so you might get more chance to enjoy the breeze during the whole duration of your stay. Also during the winter time you can get awesome wind combined with some good waves to enjoy your kitesurfing session and adrenaline-fueled fun. The best time to ride during the day is with low to mid tide.

The regulation of the beach divided Famara  into different parts for swimmers only, surfing and kitesurfing zones.The allocated kiting zone is from around the middle of the beach to the northern end. This part of the beach is accessible via a driveable track which goes behind the bungalows or just walking along the beach.   There are flags that mark the kiting zone and you will probably see kite surfers there already. You can just choose your own favorite spot.
There is enough space for everyone and usually the beach is not crowded at all. Sometimes happens that you are the only rider in the water. Somewhere on the middle of the bay also Kite school Lanzarote has their place.
When the wind changes and blows southerly, then it’s time to head off to the beach at Playa Honda on the other side of the island. Waves will be smaller but there should be opportunities to get the occasional jump and to practice free style.

Kiteboarding beginners and starting with Kite school Lanzarote

Some people have doubts when coming to Famara and see that there is practically no flat water to do the first steps in the water. No problem at all-during the summer time, the beach is enormous during the low tide. Nature provides some pools, lagoons where you can easily practice the water start and do some kiting. Otherwise the first 150-200m from the coast the waves are gentle and ideal to start. You are even forced to start doing turns on both sides or if you do not manage you can easily have a walk back along the beach. If you can kite in Famara, you can kitesurf everywhere. This is also our main motto at ” Kite school Lanzarote “.

Safety first!

kite school lanzarote and kitesurfing in lanzaroteOf course like any other sport also kitesurfing can be dangerous if you do not obey the rules and do not know the basics. That is why it is always better to take some initial courses before you start practicing a new sport and learn to kitesurf the responsible way. Also you will prevent any damage to equipment if you are coached by an experienced coach.Nowadays the equipment is so advanced that safety is always a priority and also the wind conditions are safe because the wind is blowing side/onshore from the right. So whatever happens you always reach the coast.
What is the most important – qualified  lifeguards are securing the beach, so whatever happens, they can always help you!

Wave kitesurfing in Famara

During the winter time the swell can pick up because of the storms in the mid Atlantic. The waves that are created make beautiful surfable waves on the beach.  If you are lucky enough to combine the waves with some wind, you have perfect kitesurf wave riding conditions, large enough to challenge anyone and change kiteboarding for kitesurfing.
