Windsurfing

PWA Race in front of the ION CLUB Centre.
Our Instructor Bart is training for it!
Maybe one day Marie and Luis will do it too?

Known worldwide for its perfect windsurfing conditions, the Golf of Roses Bay is ideal for windsurfers from Beginner to Expert Levels.
That is also a reason for the PWA to hold since more than 15 years an event here. This happens usually in May or June. The discipline has been freestyle and super-cross in the past, since a couple of years it is SLALOM. The event takes place just beside the ION CLUB Golf de Roses in front of the Camping la Ballena Alegre, who is the main sponsor of the event, from 23.-28.May 2017.

The thermal wind blows cross-onshore from the southeast, gradually picking up during the day. Beginners can enjoy the shallow water area with a light breeze in the mornings. Both kids and adults are taught by our motivated, multilingual, certified instructors. Kids can enjoy the first steps of windsurfing and meet new windsurfing friends of their own age; our small teaching groups (maximum 4) means that children can have a lot of fun together, with plenty of attention from our instructors.
As a general ruley you can expect the thermal wind to pick up from 3 – 5 Bft, and good days can even bring a 6 Bft. When the Tramuntana blows, the conditions are slightly different. This wind comes rushing down from the Pyrenees in the north, usually picking up to between a 5 Bft and 8 Bft. The water state also changes, giving you small waves breaking by the beach and perfect Bump and Jump conditions further out.
If you’ve mastered the waterstart, then you have probably dreamt of these conditions. 4.0 – 5.0m² sails are the most popular sizes and we unleash the wave boards. Please check out all the information about the windconditions at our spot here.
Intermediate and Advanced Level windsurfers can try out the latest equipment from North Sails and Fanatic.
