Your Kitesurf School at 15 minutes from Lisbon.
Our kitesurfing activities take place in a mobile format between the beaches of Caparica, Lagoa de Albufeira and Tagus River under the conditions to practice. In all locations we have beach support with fixed facilities. We have support boat and all the equipment used is of last generation.
World class wave riding and lagoon conditions on the doorstep of one of the world’s most culturally rich cities! Thousands of years of history and buzzing atmosphere make Lisbon a great choice that is also just a few kilometres from some of the best beaches for kitesurfing or surfing on the Portuguese coastline.
Air and water temperatures are warm and constant all year round. In summer (from May to September), you can expect an air temperature of about 30 degrees, and in winter - no less than 15-25 degrees.
The Nortada wind kicks in around the Lisbon region from noon and builds through the afternoon leaving the mornings with glassy conditions for surfing. On hot days prepare to change down kite sizes as the day progresses due to the thermic effect. In the summer it's usually seven to 12 metre weather, but bring your five metre for the occasional 40+ knot blow-out at Costa Caparica!
