FLAT-WATER LAGOON AND WAVES

Esposende offers the perfect spot to learn kitesurfing.

Cavado lagoon, which flows parallel to the ocean is separated from it only by a flat sandy dune. Flat water is perfect for starter courses and freestyle workshops. On the other side of the sand dune the advanced riders can practice in the waves.

The season starts in April and lasts till September. The wind called Nortada blows from the North-West with the strength of 15-30 knt,  when it comes to the Espo spot means side on, and on the ocean side shore, providing perfect and safe conditions for teaching. The wind is steady and on hot days you can expect the extra „kick” of thermal wind. Water temperature is 17-22 C depending on the month so we recommend taking a wetsuit. The beach is completely sandy with no stones or any other hazardous objects.
