Based around the best kitesurfing beach in Fuerteventura you can’t go wrong. With miles of sand, reliable conditions and comprehensive tuition options. Whatever your level Flag Beach is a great place to learn and to improve.

Flag Beach Corralejo kitesurfing

Flag Beach is located in the north of Fuerteventura starting at the southern Edge of Corralejo. The beach features around seven kilometres of white sand – three of which you can kite. Plus there are prominent cross shore winds during the summer months.

March to November is when the wind is at its most reliable. Conditions are well suited to all types kiting – including freestyle, wave riding, racing and downwind racing.

In the winter months, wind directions are less reliable so Flag Beach is not always suitable. But you can still kitesurf at a number of other nearby spots with boat access.

Flag Beach Kitesurfing School

Flag Beach Kitesurfing School have been teaching kitesurfing since 1999 (having originally set up in 1988 to teach windsurfing). It was one of the first major kitesurfing schools set up in Spain, and the first on Fuerteventura, so there’s a real pedigree.

All of their teaching is carried out using their semi-rigid inflatable boats so they can take you to the best beach for the conditions. But also because in the high season the water can get a little busy so a boat gives flexibility to learn where there is space and for instructors to be close to students.

Furthermore, if you head downwind it’s a 20-minute circuit. So rather than spending 12 minutes walking back up the beach for an eight-minute downwind ride, the boat can pick you up so you spend more time on the water. A boat also provides an extra dimension of safety, so if you do get into trouble the team can get to you quickly.
