- ABOUT THE SPOT
Kiteboarding / Kitesurfing in Mojacar, Almeria, Andalusia Spain
Water sports enthusiasts will love the Mojacar Playa, with its blue water seaside and blue-flag and the all year warm water beaches. Temperatures vary with colder months being January to February (8-10°C/46.40-50°F) and warmest between July and August (21-30°C/69.80-86°F). Water temperature during summer is quite warm, about 20-22°C/68-71.60°F.
Mojacar wave size is small, usually less than a meter, tide independent, with swell direction south west. The winds are frontal thermal, about 4 and 5 Bft, south west direction, not the best for experienced kites, but try during lunch hour to catch stronger ones. With mountains blocking stronger winds, this is a great spot for a beginner to learn and practice. A lot of room to launch your kite and even larger space to kite.
Best time to visit the spot is during summer where there are a lot of kiters. You can attend a lot of schools for instructions and lessons for beginners. There are also a lot of shops where you can buy your equipment from.
