#8 Kite Roadtrip: Kitesurfing between Lanzarote and La Graciosa

Tuesday 03.04.2018:

08:30 am: The next morning starts slowly after the successful rescue of the anchor. There’s wind all day long for today. After an extensive breakfast Tobi proposes to take the dinghy to Lanzarote and kite from the beach.

10:00 am: Between La Graciosa and Lanzarote a jet is created by the up to 800 meter high cliff coast, which has a positive effect on the wind strength in northern winds. So the 16 knots quickly turn into 20-25 and a small swell from northwest pushes in, top conditions for kiting with the waveboard. For tips and tricks have a look at our Strapless Kitesurfing Tutorials.

The first slide is already over there and it looks quite good, but the wind should pick up during the day, so Jürgen and the rest of the guests take it easy.

3:00 pm: In the afternoon Tobi picks them up with the dinghy and they go on a somewhat swaying and wet dinghy ride. No problem, because everyone is already wearing their neoprene. On the other side, the spotlight has changed a bit, now that the water has accumulated. Waves break directly on the beach and so the dinghy has to “park” a little further downwind.

The session is good, the wind stronger, so they kite for a bit. Instead of putting everything back into the dinghy, the kiters decide to take a downwinder between the islands and drive directly back to the boat.

06:00 pm: Some land at La Graciosa on the beach, others directly on the boat. That was a nice conclusion of the two weeks on the cat.

09:00 am: The next day the crew returns to the western side of Lanzarote. This time without anchor mishaps on the direct way to the marina. In the evening they have a nice final dinner in the marina and say goodbye to the Otto Mezzo, who was the KiteWorldWide catamaran for 3 weeks. In autumn we continue with tours on the Canary Islands.

In the afternoon Jürgen flies back to Barcelona. Tobi takes him by dinghy to the taxi ;) Let’s see if the van is still at the airport in Barcelona…
