Costa Dorada & Ebro Delta
If you’d rather kite legally in summer, you’re better off packing up and moving on towards the Costa Dorada & Ebro Delta. This nature reserve with its vast paddy fields is one of the Spanish Mediterranean’s windiest areas. In spring and summer, thermal winds dominate. While Garbí (south-westerly) und Xaloc (south-easterly) often reach Force 4-5 in spring, summer’s often only breezy enough for bigger kit. It’s a different story in winter: if a low-pressure system’s passing through the Northern Pyrenees, Mistral can whistle down the valleys at 50+ knots. You can even find cross-shore conditions on a couple of beaches in the Delta. This region’s second ‘winter wind’ is Levante (north-east to easterly), which adds big waves into the equation. Sadly, most breaks are so messy that few riders make it out through the impact zone.
