Windsurfing, Kitesurfing and Wing Foiling

The Sotavento beach area and Jandía in general has become an important attraction for water sports, especially windsurfing. Since 1986, the Fuerteventura Windsurfing and Kiteboarding World Championship has been held here, one of the main international events and which is considered the great claim of the south of Fuerteventura during the last fortnight of July.

Within these wind sports, Julia Castro, a local athlete with several palmares, becoming champion of Spain on several occasions, has stood out for years.

We must not forget that we are in a natural spot where swimmers, kitesurfers and windsurfers coincide with their real owners, the wild animals and plants. The coexistence of all of them is possible, although it is sometimes complicated.
