The Kitesurfing school has been running courses
in St Pierre la Mer since 2003
on the venue of the Junior Kiteboarding World Cup.

The spot works under many wind conditions; the Tramontane, the Grec (sea wind) and the southern Spanish winds.
A unique kitezone on the Mediterranean coast, consisting of a 300 m stretch of sea and the sandy beach, reserved just for kitesurfers.

The zone is recognized by the FFVL, the maritime authorities and the community of Fleury d’Aude. In the case of big waves kitesurfers are permitted to use the sailing school’s lake just next to the kitezone. The kitezone’s security is covered by safety boats which allow you to become a safe, independent kitesurfer after a 5 x 2 hr course. , After that you can progress by joining the Glisse & Kite Club, open from April until November.

Join the Glisse & Kite kitesurfing club for 200 euros per year (March until November). If you have your own equipment and insurance the club offers safety boat cover in offshore winds, helpful tips to make you progress, 50% reduction on kite rental and the use of changing rooms and showers.
