Summer kitesurf prohibition: Barcelona and Catalonia


Options for kitesurfing during summer


1

Castelldefels: Kitesurf zone

Only for those who practice independently, are intermediate or advanced, and have their own equipment

There is a kitesurf zone in Castelldefels. This kitesurfing zone consists of an area on the beach and a kitesurfing channel in the water, which can be used to launch your kite and navigate outside the bathing area (200 m from the coast). Then you will have to stay kitesurfing in open water until you have finished; you will also have to return to the beach using the kitesurf channel. This means that you will have to be able to stay/return upwind. The Castelldefels kitesurfing zone opens on weekdays, when the wind exceeds 14kts (twintip) or 7kts (foil). You will find the kitesurfing zone near the Bunker in Castelldefels. It is not possible to rent equipment in the kitesurf area, you must bring your own equipment.

Castelldefels: After 19:00

Only for those who practice independently, are intermediate or advanced, and have their own equipment

If you are lucky, there is some wind in the eveing. After 19:00, the lifeguards of Castelldefels beach leave and the bathing area is no longer guarded, which means that you can launch your kite and probably not get into trouble.
