Flag Beach Kitesurf Spot in Fuerteventura

Europe Kiteboard Spot in Spain

Forward this spot to your friends

Flag Beach is probably one of the most popular spots in Fuerteventura due to the relatively flat water in the summer and a large open beach with plenty of space for loads of kitesurfers to safely ride together. It’s also located really close to the popular tourist town of Corralejo which offers restaurants, bars and parties depending on what kind of holiday you are looking for. The wind in the summer is very consistent here with the North East trade wind plus a thermal effect from the island itself ensuring that you’ll most likely score some epic kitesurfing. Fuerteventura is only a short flight from most of Europe and with cheap flights and holiday deals it’s easy to see why kitesurfers flock here year round.

Flag Beach Kitesurfing wind conditions

The wind blows cross shore from the left most of the summer from March until September, and this is also when the water is at its flattest. The wind picks up a little later around lunch time here, so if you want to have a lie in this is a great spot, and you won’t be missing any kitesurfing if you are nursing a small hangover! Generally it averages between 15-25 knots here in season, but it will really depend on the day as the thermal wind makes a difference. If you are unsure about the forecast, reach out to the local schools and they can advise you on the likely conditions.

You’ll need to be careful at low tide as there are sharp volcanic rocks all over, so particularly when jumping, or entering and exiting the water you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled and keep a safe distance. Booties aren’t the worst idea if you are learning or not yet 100% comfortable with your kite flying abilities. Generally through the summer you’ll be fine with just shorts and a t-shirt for kitesurfing, but early and late season a wetsuit would be advisable. In the winter here you can score waves, but the wind conditions aren’t as consistent so planning a kitesurfing trip here from November until February is more hit and miss.
