Kitesurf and wingfoil seasons



There are some seasons that are better for the wind than others. Here is a summary of the conditions in the different seasons, so you know when to come to Barcelona for kitesurfing or wingfoiling!

icon-spring

Spring

Mid February - Begin June

The kitesurf season kicks off in mid-February when the wind becomes more consistent. Castelldefels, the main kite & wing beach from Barcelona, typically offers a few good windy days per week. Our kite school takes advantage of every windy day, operating seven days a week, whether weekdays or weekends.

icon-summer

Summer

Begin June - End September

"During the summer months, a kite & wing prohibition is in place in and around Barcelona and it´s not allowed to kite / wing on all beaches, but we're fortunate to have designated zones where we can still enjoy the wind on the weekdays! The wind in the summer is mostly a thermal breeze, around 12-18 knots.

icon-autumn

Autumn

End September - Mid January

Autumn is a great time to catch the wind! The wind season in Castelldefels, the main kite & wing beach of Barcelona, continues until mid January, making it an ideal time for kitesurfers and wingfoilers to enjoy the warm Mediterranean weather and consistent winds blowing at an average speed of 12-22 knots.

icon-winter

Winter

Mid January - Mid February

During this period we have a winter stop, due to the chilly temperatures and mostly no windy days. However, we have a fantastic alternative - join our kitesurf camp in January in the tropical Cape Verde Islands, the perfect opportunity to escape the winter blues and get your kitesurfing fix!"

The best kite & wing spots




The main beach with good wind in the Barcelona area is Castelldefels, where the Mojo shop & bar is located! Sometimes the wind may not be good in Castelldefels, but you can find good conditions in other nearby spots. For more info on the spots, pass by our shop.

Castelldefels

Castelldefels is the main kite and wing beach of Barcelona due to the perfect wind conditions. The south west winds are the most frequent and consistent with a safe side-onshore direction. This wind is a thermal that picks up more on the days with a sunny sky. Occasionally, we'll see an east or south-east wind blowing in, this direction is also good in Barcelona centre.

Delta del Ebro

The Delta del Ebro is about 2,5hrs south driving from Barcelona. There's two main spots. First there's Riumar, amazing conditions with north winds. These winds are usually best in the mornings when it's not that hot. It can get pretty strong! Then, working well with south winds, is the Trabucador. A huge flat water lagoon amazing for learning and progressing, and a great camp spot with sunset views!

kitesurf zone sant pere pescador

Sant Pere Pescador

At 1,5hrs north of Barcelona, in the Costa Brava, Sant Pere Pescador is a popular kite & wing beach. It works well with any south, south east wind directions. Incase you are a confident and very experienced rider, you can also go here with the north wind forecasts. This wind will be strong and slightly offshore, but it's fun if you're experienced enough.

Summer kitesurf prohibition

Due to the high volume of beach users during the summer months in Castelldefels, there will be a prohibition period for kitesurfing from begin June to end September. This decision has been made to ensure the safety of all swimmers and to prevent any conflicts between kitesurfers and beach users. During this time, kitesurfing will only be allowed in the kitesurf zone on weekdays. Come by the Mojokite shop and we give you all the info you are looking for!
