Daisy and Carmen
“I’ve had a great camp! Lenguaventura has been my best camp (I’m an expert, it was already my 6th camp). Next summer I want to return. Without any doubt the Lenguaventura team is very professional and very friendly team. All the activities have been organized extremely well. The accommodation in rooms of maximum 3 people and the laundry service was a luxury. Healthy quality food, complements to the cook. Very original night activities and very interesting excursions. I loved th Kitesurf and I want to continue practicing this sport. The mentors were fantastic and my the friends I met were hilarious.”
“I enjoyed my stay in Lenguaventura very much. My language skills in Spanish improved quite impressively as a native speaking friend of my parents realized immediately. I had a lot of fun and met new friends. Thanks so much for making this holidays memorable.”

Fun teen kitesurf summercamps in Tarifa
Invented in the early 1970s having become mainstream in the 90s, kitesurfing has gained momentum over the years, made popular by kitesurfing legends such as Aaron Hadlow, Stefan Speissberger and Susi Mai. (Check them out, they really are awesome!) It is now an easy, safe and super slick sport to learn, with the supervision of a professional teacher.
Our popular summercamps in Tarifa offer the best kitesurfing tuition whatever your skill level – whether you’re a complete beginner, have tried it before or are a kitesurfing pro, Lenguaventura is the right summer camp for you! We offer a range of different courses based on your kitesurfing skill level and dedication to the sport.
Each of our teenagers is supervised by one professional kitesurfing instructor in groups of four students.
In this group you will share a kite with one other person and take it in turns to boost, edge and free-ride your kite during our three or four hour afternoon watersports sessions, each day, giving you the chance to work as a team and help each other improve your skills. We also offer more intensive semi-private courses of two teenagers per instructor, with one kite each, for daily kitesurfing sessions lasting three hours – if you’re determined to become a kitesurfing genius then this is the course for you.
Whether you choose the 12-16 hour per week group sessions or the 12 hour semi-private tuition, each of our courses are held on different kitesurfing levels from beginner to advanced.
Experienced kitesurfers can also participate in our Kitesurf summercamp. Lenguaventura offers all kitesurfers able to ride independently the opportunity to hire kitesurfing gear and practice by themselves under the supervision of an instructor ashore, while their peers have lessons.
