Kids windsurfing at Golf de Roses

Golf de Roses is the perfect spot for kids instruction, a place where many families make holidays. The water is shallow for about 50m. In the mornings there are light winds which offer the perfect conditions for kids. The wind is side onshore, that means very safe and the kids do not have to be afraid to drift to the open sea.

The courses are all held in front of the centre. There’s a seating area for theory and a simulator directly in front of the school. The water next to the centre has several sandbars running through it, creating a semi-shallow area. Beginners and Intermediates can, therefore, indulge in flat, shallow water in the morning. 

Wind at Golf de Roses

Thermal winds blow cross on from the southeast, gradually picking up during the day. The gentle morning breeze is perfect for those having their first go at windsurfing. The conditions are particularly good for kids.

Generally, you can expect the thermal to produce between 3.5 – 5 Bft, good days will easily see a force 5 though. The wind here is also particularly constant. Your best chances of catching the thermal winds are between May and September. There is also a local wind called the ‘Garbi’, which has been increasingly more common in the last few years. The ‘Garbi’ tends to appear after the south-easterly thermal wind has kicked in, with the wind slowly swinging to a southerly around 4pm. This southern wind tends to be somewhere between 5 and 6 Bft, flattening the water to produce perfect freestyle conditions.

‘Tramuntana’ on the other hand is a little different. This wind comes cascading down from the Pyrenees in the north, usually picking up to between a F5 and F8. The water state also changes, leaving you with small waves breaking by the beach and perfect Bump and Jump conditions further out. If you’ve mastered the water start, then you have probably dreamt of these conditions. 4.0 – 5.5m sails become the norm and the wave boards are unleashed. Unfortunately, though it is very hard to predict the ‘Trami’, though it is more common in cooler weather such as April. Once it arrives the weather tends to stay that way for 2 or 3 days.

When the thermal is blowing, this is the perfect spot for learning, regardless of age. With the variation in the wind during the day, anyone can enjoy themselves, from absolute beginners in the morning through to the more experienced in the afternoon. Once the ‘Tramuntana’ kicks in, the conditions will certainly be too tough for some, especially as it tends pick up early in the morning. However, if you’re advanced, there’s nothing better!
