Is the most frequent in Tarifa, especially during the summer time. When the temperatures are high, is picking up a sea breeze coming from the South-West (from the sea to the land). We consider the Poniente as a thermal wind, rising up around 1pm and dropping at the sunset.

  • Average wind speed : between 12 and 18 knots (1 knot = 1.85 km),
  • Kite size normally used : we are using kite between 14 and 9 Meters,
  • Positives :good conditions to learn and practice, constant wind, small waves on the shore. Don’t stress! With Poniente you will always come back to the shore.

Is a wind coming from the Mediterranean sea and taking his strengh on the strait of Gibraltar, we call it Venturi’s effect (tighter it is, stronger the wind will be). This wind is coming from North-East (from the land to the sea) and can be strong and really strong.
