Tarifa Kite Adventures – May 2024

High Five Kite Community Presents:

Tarifa Kite Adventures

May 2024

Welcome to an exhilarating chapter in our kite journey – where the wind, waves, and our vibrant community spirit take us to the stunning shores of Tarifa, Spain!

Tarifa is the home away from our Cape Town kite home to which the kite surfing community flocks in order to keep the deep set adrenaline filled love of kitesurfing going beyond the Cape Town season.

As a tiny little Spanish village solely focused around kite surfing, the vibe generated is hard to explain, you need to experience it yourself.

Packed with kiters from all over the world, new kiters being introduced to this life changing sport, or just general kite community wind chasers, this place at this time is hard to beat.

We want you to experience it all with us and the High Five Kite Community.

Who’s Joining?

The High Five Family, together with some thrilling partners, are gearing up for an adventure that promises not just kite surfing, but a celebration of our shared stoke.

This is for everyone – whether you’re a seasoned kiter or just beginning to harness the wind. We’re all about inclusivity, good vibes, and creating memories that last a lifetime.


19 May 2024 – 26 May 2024

These dates have been specifically chosen because of the following reasons:

A perfect training ground: Given the amount of wind that Tarfia sees, it’s the perfect place for the pros to come and train, meaning the town is buzzing with an array of kiters of all different levels, mingling with one another.

Timing within the season: Just before the crazy busy season begins, so not too full but full enough for the perfect vibes.


Private room: EUR 1050 p.p.

Shared room: EUR 860 p.p.

We have already filled and secured one house, in order to add on an extra house we need to book and pay by 20 March. Therefore, book your spot before that in order to secure your space.
