Unique location for surfing and kiting. Super motivated people for a fair price-performance ratio. And there are many alternatives if there is no wind: surfing, volleyball, spikeball, slackline, skating, SUP... Suitable for both solo travelers and groups. I recommend booking the meal package. The food on site is fantastic. Thank you for the good support and everything else :)


Very professional and friendly kitesurf instructors. Delicious and healthy food, lots of fun and great accommodation. We would be happy to come back and highly recommend the camp.


I stayed for a week on October 23 for kitesurfing. The Element Fish team was incredible. Always helpful and super sociable. I'm already working on when I can return to take my kiting to the next level.
