In the Windsurf summer camp for teenagers between the ages of 14 to 17, they will be in good hands! It is super fun and challenging, to learn or improve windsurfing. Mastering the technique gives a great feeling of freedom. All that teens need to bring is motivation to learn, the rest will be done by our motivated windsurf instructors.
Lenguaventura partners with the leading windsurfing school in Tarifa, which supplies our students with their windsurfing gear (suited to all weather conditions) and professional instruction during their lessons.
The aim of the windsurf courses is to learn technique which, within a short time, leads to fast progress and the transition to shorter boards and larger sails, thus increasing speed, movement and enjoyment!
With a lot of practise windsurfing can be mastered easily and with the guidance and supervision of professional Windsurfing Instructors students can become addicted to this unique feeling and connection to the wind and the water!

A fantastic team of dedicated professionals organizes the camp with boundless enthusiasm. My nephews attended, and it has been an incredible experience for them. They not only enhanced their English skills but also engaged in numerous activities and sports amidst an international community of teens, all set in a stunning destination. Thank you for everything!
Our 16 year old is transformed! He has been filled with confidence and the kindness of your instructors and monitors. Thank you for the whole team. It was all a huge success and I will be forever grateful that he had this opportunity to prove that he could rise to the challenge of doing something like this.
A really great apportunity to meet new people from across the world, with different cultures and backgrounds. Whilst there I developed my Spanish language skills and learnt how to windsurf! There were many fun activities in and out of the classroom that made this trip a great experience – on top of the beautiful location.

1. What is the difference between a group kitesurf course and a semi-private course and which course is the best fit for my child?
It is the intensity above all that makes the difference. For those students who have never practiced kitesurfing and who want to have a first experience to find out whether they like this sport a group course with four students, sharing the kitesurfing gear available in pairs is recommended. This course is less intensive but at all times very professional and every student learns a lot as a team member. It can also be an option for these students with more advanced levels but who prefer to consolidate their knowledge without rushing and enjoy sharing the course with peers of the same level.
If a student is already an advanced kitesurfer and the goal is to reach the next level or to progress most efficiently and at a fast pace, a semi-private course (two students with their own kitesurf gear each) in this case is highly recommended. The kitesurf school recommends semi-private classes from level 3 onwards.
2. What happens if wind conditions do not allow to practise water sports?
We are a pure water sports camp. That is why we are very flexible and spare no effort to change our program when the wind conditions require it. If the wind is unsuitable on a scheduled water sport day, we recover as many hours as possible on more suitable days. Alternatively, we offer activities such as surfing, SUP, wakeboarding or go for an Adventure activities.
3. What is the situation when my child comes alone to the Camp?
Your child will not be the only one coming alone and we know there is nothing to fear, as kids coming alone are very open to new friendships and generally fit in with one another very quickly.
4. How is the supervision organised?
The Camp staff takes care of the kids around the clock. During the night we have a night counsellor.
5. Do you admit children of 13 years?
Yes, we do, especially if they come with an older brother or sister or if parents are sure that their kid/ kids can cope with being away from home. These young teenagers have to be aware that they will be amongst the youngest which is not a problem for the summer camp and hopefully neither for themselves.
6. Ideal length of stay for my child at summer camp
1 week: The one-week camp term is designed to introduce young people to the exhilarating world of overnight camps 2 weeks: Provides an ideal balance between a convenient summer schedule, outdoor fun, and positive youth development 3 weeks: Deepens camaraderie, fosters friendships, explores new skills, immerses deeper in camp community 4 weeks: Allows campers to engage in all available activities, creating an enriching experience, bond with community
Feel free to contact our team for personalized advice or questions regarding your child’s stay. We’re here to help create the perfect summer camp experience.
