Just thought I would share my bad experience in Tarifa.
After few years kitesuring at Valdevaqueros, we wanted a change and went to Los Lances.
It was a long time that I did not have such a mess with my kite, I ended up in the water self-rescuing and having my board going to hell.
But I was not worried as we had diligently bought our rescues voucher.
But actually, we learned today that there are two companies for rescues at Los Lances:
- Tarifa Rescue https://www.tarifarescue.com/ - Apparently have 2 boats
-Sea Rescue https://www.searescue.es/ - Apparently have 1 boat - but nowhere to be found
Bad on us we took the second one, Sea Rescue
, not knowing better.
I spent 40min in the water waiting for them to come. In the meantime the two boats of Tarifa Rescue came to see me.
Bad thing, they don't do the rescue if you have the other company card. Since I was not injured and hope to have my "team" come for the rescue I was not more stressed than that.
But in the finally I ended up with a nice swim and loosing my board (the brand new one of course)
Talking on the beach it's apparently not the first time.
So yea, if you go to Tarifa, definitely avoid Sea Rescue
Go for the other one Tarifa Rescue
Btw, if you have found a Atmos cruising on your tack,
