What to expect at kitespot Esposende Lagoon?
In Portugal a 30 minute drive from Porto you’ll find kitesurf spot Esposende Lagoon with nice flat water. In other words, it’s a very good place to start kitesurfing or get you tricks up.
During summer the wind is mostly coming from the NW. Therefore locals call it “Nortada” and it’s a thermic wind. It picks up around 12 pm and varies between 15-30 knots. The thermic effect increases when the difference between water temperature and land temperature is picking up.
When riding keep a safe distance of boats.
Park your car nearby Kookproof Activity Center. This kiteshop and school arranges a shuttle boat to the spot (every 30 min from 11am to 7pm) and you can get lessons or gear too. Check google directions. Don’t you want a shuttle boat? Then be prepared for a 2 km walk.
