Wind Poniente, Levante

The wind Poniente and Levante in Tarifa

Levante and Poniente - the weather in Tarifa

There are two different winds in Tarifa.

The best wind for kite surfing is the Poniente. Being about 2-5 Beaufort strong, the Poniente is coming from the west and brings cooler air from the sea. It's the dominating wind in Tarifa.

The wind from the east is called Levante. He's building up a couple of days and might even reach 8-9 Beaufort. June and July are the best months for Levante. 

Having his origin in Africa, the Levante is quite a warm wind. Windsurfers prefer the Levante more than kite surfers, because he's blowing offshore and requires quite a high level of skills (especially crossing upwind).
 

Windstatistics Tarifa

Following the windstats, July provides the strongest wind and highest quantity of windy days. 

The average of the year indicates that the wind probability (at least 4 Beaufort) is equal or higher then a 60% every month of the year. So, windless days are the exception in Tarifa Spain.

From May to Octubre rules the off shore wind Levante and the winter months see mostly the Poniente coming from the Atlantic ocean (west wind - on shore).
