The day before your kiteboarding class, Marine will inform you by email or What’s app between 7pm and 9pm (time of the last wind forecast), of the time and meeting point for the next day.

Please, do not rely too much on the wind forecast, which you can find on internet. Tarifa is a spot that you need to know a little bit to be able to interpret the forecasts (thermics, tide, directions…).
