The Spot - The Bay of Roses

THE Windsurf & Kitesurf Spot at the Costa Brava

A spot featuring the Tramuntana wind from the Pyrenees and steady sea breezes in the summer months. The long sandy Bay of Roses, on the Mediterranean coast, only 30 km away south of the French border, has been a favourite spot for windsurfers for decades. 
The ION CLUB Golf de Roses centre, at the southern end of the bay is situated between Sant Pere Pescador and L' Escala. 
The ION CLUB centre is located in the 4-star campsite and bungalow park La Ballena Alegre Costa Brava. The campsite will be the venue this year again for the PWA Worldcup event taking place right beside the ION CLUB centre.

The next PWA Worldcup in the category Foil takes place from the 28.05.-02.06.2019!

Wind Forecast

Understand the Wind forecast at our spot:

  • Please read the Wind description first!
  • The Thermal Wind  is the most common Wind (South-east), this is a local Wind effect, which isn't considered by the forecast. As soon as windguru is showing the South- East Wind direction, you have to add 5-10 knots on top of the forecasted windspeed.
  • Also the Tramuntana (North) is most of time stronger than forecasted. The Tramunta kicks in at our spot if at least 18 knots are forecasted and the sky is clear ( low clowdcover %).
