ALEX PASTOR KITE CLUB
FOUNDED IN 2014
APKC was founded by World Champion, Alex Pastor, in 2014 when Alex saw the demand for a dedicated watersports center for the brands he was associated with at his home base of Tarifa. Since then, APKC has added hydrofoiling and winging to its service offering.
Tarifa is the epicenter of Kiteboarding in Europe. Located on the Southernmost tip of Spain on the straits of Gibraltar, it is blessed by consistent summer winds and wide expanses of beach, making it a true watersports mecca. Conditions vary from strong offshore “Levante” winds ideal for more advanced riders to milder onshore “Poniente” winds with a huge variety of beaches and locations to choose from. In the winter months Atlantic storms brings waves into the area, which increase in size as you head further East.
As much as APKC is famous for offering the latest in Freestyle Gear, the team are extremely passionate about bringing young people into the sport. They specialize in offering a fun program to people learning how to kite, wing, or hydrofoil along with advanced riding instruction and gear setup from Alex Pastor himself.
