Lenguaventura is a summer camp for teenagers aged 14-17 years which takes place every summer in Tarifa, Spain. The activities we offer are windsurfing, kitesurfing and wingsurfing during our uniquely designed Spain summer camps. Tarifa is perfect for year-round watersports as the warm climate and high winds are well-suited to each of our activities. In fact, Tarifa is one of the best places for watersports in the world! You can ensure your sons and daughters have a fun-filled, independent and productive summer, with the opportunity to learn new skills and experiences; practice their English and Spanish language and gain self confidence by meeting new people and new friends, all in a safe and comfortable international environment.
Kitesurfing summer camp
Our kitesurfing summer camp is a fantastic way for your teenager to learn a super fun sport that develops fitness, endurance and coordination, under the azure Spanish sky in crystal clear waters.
The kitesurfing classes take place in the afternoons and your teenagers can enjoy 12 hours of kitesurfing per week, between Monday and Friday. Wednesdays are reserved for whole day excursions. The kitesurfing classes are held on several levels, from beginners tutorials, to advanced skilled levels and everything in between!
Kitesurfing is a very safe sport but to ensure ultimate safety and responsibility, each of our teenagers is supervised by one professional kitesurfing instructor in groups of four students. In this group your son or daughter will share a kite with one other person and take it in turns to practice kitesurfing during the three hour afternoon watersports sessions, giving them the chance to work as a team and improve their skills.
We also offer more intensive semi-private courses of two teenagers per instructor, with one kite each, for kitesurfing sessions also on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, lasting three hours. Both of our courses are held on different kitesurfing levels from beginner to advanced.
For more experienced kitesurfers we offer the opportunity to participate in our Kitesurfing summer camp. If your child can ride independently, then we allow them to hire kitesurfing equipment and practice independently under the supervision of a qualified instructor ashore, while their friends have lessons.
Windsurfing summer camp
Due to Tarifa’s year-round warm and windy climate, it’s attracted windsurfers since the very beginning, meaning Tarifa is home to the most highly qualified and professional windsurfing schools in the world! Where could be a better place for you teenagers to learn the sport?
The windsurfing summer camp is run in alliance with the leading windsurf school in Tarifa, Spin Out. Lessons take place on four afternoons a week (eight hours per week) at the beautiful windsurfing beach, Valdevaqueros. All the required material is included on the course, thus always ensuring that the students get the right windsurfing equipment for all possible wind conditions.
Our courses cover every windsurfing skill level so your teenager is welcome whether they are a beginner, have experience of windsurfing or are a highly skilled windsurfer.
Wingsurfing summer camp
Over the last few years we’ve noticed the interest of our students has been towards water sports predominately, so we have decided to become the first purely water sports summer camp in Tarifa. With this exciting new directions, we are celebrating by introducing wingsurfing, a relatively new, safe water sport to our students for 2022. Wingsurfing is easy to learn and with no specific physical preparation needed.
Wingsurfing is safe because the wingsurfer has only a soft inflated wing in their hands and starts with a big SUP board which makes the handling easier. Further to this there is no mast or lines to struggle with. This means the wingsurfer has to deal with much less equipment than in other water sports. Another positive point is that through the reduction of material the wingsurfer is freer to enjoy this sport from the very beginning. Another big advantage is that this exciting sport can be practiced with less wind. Wingsurfing also allows the students to be in contact with the board and the wing from the very first day.
Here at Lenguaventura, we always ensure that safety comes first. With this in mind, we have chosen to partner with a water sport school which has a trustworthy and reliable reputation. This means that we can be sure that they will teach the teenagers under the best conditions, choosing the right beach according to the wind conditions. Our Wingsurf course covers a beginner skill level and within two weeks – of course depending on the ability of the group and the wind conditions – the students should be able to reach an intermediate level of skill. We teach in groups of four students with one instructor, always with two people sharing the equipment, during 12 hours per week on four afternoons.
