With huge swathes of sandy beach, knee-deep lagoons and the warm Mediterranean sea, Leucate-La Franqui is a renowned windsurf spot and is now regarded as one of the best places to kitesurf in France and indeed Europe. The “Mondial du Vent” event takes place at Easter each year right in front of the kitesurf school and attracts some of the world’s best kitesurfers.
A Mediterranean climate means mild temperatures in winter and hot sun and warm water in summer, and plenty of wind as well. The Adrenaline team is made up of a team of FFVL-qualified instructors who have already successfully taken many people through the first steps of learning to kitesurf as well as helping intermediate kitesurfers take the sport to the next level. The team is led by John Pendry, English by origin, ex-World Paragliding Champion, ex-Hang Gliding World Champion – a living legend in the flying world and now kitesurf fanatic.
A 6 hour course of kitesurfing lessons mid-season is €230.
1 day buggying or mountainboarding is €125.
