Spot advice Leucate to Narbonne-area

Postby Delta99 » Mon Jan 04, 2021 12:18 pm

Hi,
Looking for advice on kitesurfing in the Leucate to Narbonne-area.

- Best spots?
- Do you also ride on the inside "Etange"? Looks like fantastic flat water? Where?
- Access to beaches? Or you have to ride at a kite-school location with beach fee?
- Limitations?
- Overcrowded time of year?
- Clever place to stay to minimize administration? And perhaps also to find some kite-friends. Plan to stay a month.
- Acceptable winds in March-May? Suppose wind direction always is off-shore, why I'm attracted to the Etanges.
- Do I need a car?

Thanks /Tomas

I was there last summer, amazing place! Hands down the best spot to go to is Les Dosses which has insanely strong winds and quite often you can see the French pro's (Val garat, Nicolas Gambier, Clement Huot, etc. ) tear up the spot. Another good spot is near La Palme (42°58'16.0"N 3°01'05.8"E), which is a bit more gusty, but very beginner friendly.

You defo need a car by the way, the spots are quite remote.

Enjoy!
