Windguru Windforecast Tarifa
Tarifa is probably rightly called the the Windcapital of Europe. The Strait of Gibraltar accelerates the wind like a nozzle. On a yearly average, 40% percent will blow the Levante (where the wind is coming from the Mediterranean to the Atlantic). Levante (from the East) is also translated: the wind comes from the east. The Poniente (from the West), blows from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean and also contributes 40 percent of the wind time. On other days, the wind comes from south, usually in combination with high waves and rain in the morning. North wind is not typical for Tarifa and is usually gusty and not kiteable.
