Flying kites in the blue sky of Fuerteventura

Flying kites in the blue sky of Fuerteventura

If you come to enjoy your rest on the island with family or friends, the wind that blows will also allow you to get a feeling of freedom and incredible life, the same one that occurs when you see kites flying over the blue sky of Fuerteventura. Both in the figure of the spectator and guiding your own, the dance of the kites moved by the Majorero wind is hypnotizing for its beauty and for the tranquility it transmits, perfect for your rest days with your loved ones.

Fuerteventura is world famous, in addition to its white sand beaches and turquoise waters, for its favorable wind to practice all kinds of water sports tucked in a warm draft. Surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing … there are many possibilities and many people who opt for this Canary island to put their skills on the waves or to discover new activities and enjoy hours of adrenaline and fun.

The lifting of a kite is a simple task with the wind of Fuerteventura. The basic movements to achieve stability and balance in the air depend largely on the material of the kite (for example, the tail or fringes play an important role) and, of course, the attempts made on the sand. Surely not your first time, since the flight of comets is a very common game of childhood, but if you have never had the opportunity to have one in your hands on a stage like Fuerteventura, the experience will be unforgettable. Can you imagine, for example, guiding a kite in one of the sunsets that the island offers us? A dream that can come true!

So much is the love of kite flying for decades, that every year Fuerteventura hosts an appointment for professionals and individuals that has become a reference: we talk about the International Kite Festival held in the Natural Park of Corralejo Dunes in the month of November. Thousands of commissariats have come to this call since 1987, year in which it started thanks to the initiative of people who love kite flying and who has consolidated in each edition by gathering more and more people from different countries around the world.
