Garonne Le Pradet kite surf spot

the Garonne spot is a good spot all year round!
By Mistral, westerly wind, the wind blows "onshore" (which brings you back to the beach), which gives off a good chop, even a few waves (1 to 2 m) when the wind blows above 20 knots. Our advice: climb well beyond 300m to take advantage of the fresh wind, which is turbulent near the coast because of the hills.
Be careful, however, if the wind is blowing North / North-West: it is a very gusty wind and navigation can be very technical or even dangerous.
The other prevailing wind: the east wind. The wind blows "offshore" (pushes offshore). It is therefore very easy to leave, but very technical to come back! Because of the hills, the wind is very gusty in strength and direction, we do not necessarily realize the strength of the wind from the beach, being in the shelter. But the water is flat, perfect for foilers!
In summer, it is a southerly thermal, so "side" to the coast which rises in the afternoon. It can blow up to 15 knots.

It is forbidden for the kite to take off from the Pradet nautical club, all year round. To get in the water, you have to go to the sands of the Garonne, below the glacier.
Regarding windsurfing, out of season, the club tolerates the launching of windsurfing boards and wings from the club launchings. In season, it is forbidden, like kiteboarding.
