Professional Warranty

At Subcielo Kite School we guarantee the professionalism of our instructors and the courses we teach. We are 100% committed to our students.

If the student is not satisfied with the work done by our professionals during the first day of lessons, we will refund the amount of the kitesurfing course. As long as this decision is communicated to us before the class takes place in the water.

If a student decides to leave the course after starting the class in the water, at Subcielo we commit ourselves to pay the amount of the remaining days of the contracted course, but not the amount corresponding to the first day of the course in our school.

All our instructors have national and international kitesurfing qualifications that endorse them as professionals in this sport. In Subcielo we also have liability insurance and sports licenses granted by the City of Tarifa.

In Subcielo Kite School we are an active tourism company with license number AT/CA/00167 and we are recognized by the Junta de Andalucía and the Ayto. of Tarifa. This guarantees quality services and safety for all our students.

We have more than 15 years of experience in the kite world. We have been I.K.O. and F.A.V. certified since 2005 for quality management, something we continue to strive for every day. In all this time we have not only taught kitesurfing, we have also learned from all our students.

These credentials guarantee that we have the capacity to serve you as you deserve. We stand out for adapting each course to the level and needs of the students, and we teach in several languages. At the end of your course with us, we will give you the IKO card, which will help you to continue your learning around the world.

Here we answer some of our students’ most frequently asked questions.

The attention and commitment of Manuel and Victoria (owners of the school) is the most important thing for us and what differentiates us from other schools. Our instructors accompany you at all times in your course, both Victoria and Manuel are aware of all your needs and are experts in transmitting their passion for kitesurfing in each course.

The required qualification in Tarifa is the F.A.V. (Federación Andaluza de Vela), but in Subcielo Tarifa we also have the I.K.O. level 2.

At Subcielo Kitesurf School we have all the necessary requirements to be considered an approved school:

  • Maritime captaincy permit to carry out the activity.
  • Certificate of homologation of the F.A.V. (Andalusian Sailing Federation).
  • Instructors registered with the Social Security and with a federative license for the current year.
  • Liability and accident insurance.
  • Environmental permit to work in the natural park.
  • Rescue vessel approved by the maritime authority.

In Subcielo Tarifa we work since 2005 with the best and most updated material of the brand DUOTONE KITEBOARDING. It is essential that schools have equipment in perfect condition for teaching and renting to their students, thus ensuring their safety at all times.

Both the equipment we use in the courses, as the one we use for our kitesurfing equipment rental service in Tarifa, are renewed every year for maximum safety.

While other schools use Foil type kites to start in the world of kitesurfing, we have BUZZ model kites (these are inflatable kitesurfing kites that have a more robust construction). So from minute one you will be flying a professional kite kite.

What we most like to emphasize about our Kite School is the involvement with all our students, and this work is reflected in the reviews that our school has:

The experience and attitude of an instructor are fundamental in the progress of the courses, since a good instructor must have a multitude of tools to make you understand the exercises that he has been collecting and improving during all the years dedicated to teaching kiteboarding.

No one can deny that a private course is the most effective way to learn kitesurfing, since you have an instructor and the material for yourself. The instructor’s attention will be full time, and if you add to this an inflatable with skipper and instructor without having to share them with other trainees, the kitesurfing course on a boat would be ideal. But we understand that this entails costs that not everyone can afford, so we have a multitude of options.

Among them we can highlight our semi-private course, in which you have the material just for you (you do not share it with anyone and you go at your own pace), and in which the instructor can control another kite at the same time, so he can attend to a maximum of two students at the same time.

The group course is designed for families or friends who want to have a first contact with kitesurfing, and have a fun time in a group at an economical price.

This question is difficult to answer for several reasons.

First of all, each person is different and depending on the physical condition, needs and attitudes, progress will be faster or slow er. We can assure you that with our experience we will make your progress as fast as possible.

In a 3-day course you will not be able to make jumps with your kite and even sail upwind, but you will have a clear idea of the basic techniques. You will also be able to find out if this is your new sport, as you will have all the concepts of what kiteboarding is all about.

For a sufficient autonomy in the kite, it will take about 5 days of course, during which you will have had time to assimilate and practice all the necessary exercises to know how to handle your kite.

But we repeat, since it is very important to be clear about it:

Each person is different and we will not be able to make an estimate until we see how you perform with the kite.

Don’t worry about that, Tarifa is known worldwide for its high percentage of westerly and easterly winds. These winds predominate in the area of the Strait of Gibraltar thanks to the funnel effect created by the mountains that comprise this unique access to the Mediterranean Sea from the Atlantic Ocean.

In any case, you should know that if due to weather conditions we are unable to carry out the activity, we will refund your reservation fee, since you will only pay if we have the appropriate day for your level of education.

In addition, we are a professional Kitesurf School that has a multitude of specific material for each level and for different meteorological circumstances that could occur.

If done with caution and knowledge of the dangers of misuse, kitesurfing does not have to be dangerous.

We defend that from a learning base in conditions, and complying with all the parameters that we instilled in you on the first day of class, risk is greatly minimized. Of course, it is not guaranteed to be risk-free, but we have experienced instructors who have the necessary skills and materials to make the risk almost null.

Normally after the explanation of our instructors and the first minutes of flying with the kite, your fears will be blown away by the wind of Tarifa.

Keep in mind that this sport can be done by almost the entire population (as long as they do not have considerable physical problems incompatible with kitesurfing). We have had students ranging from 10 year olds to retired people.
