The Nortada wind blows along the Portuguese Atlantic coast during the summer, add to this reliable wind a local thermic effect, and you get the windiest spot of Portugal: Viana do Castelo - Kite Voodoo

The Windiest Kite Spot in Portugal


Nortada wind, which dominates the Portuguese Atlantic coastline, delivers awesome wind conditions for six whole months. Thanks to the natural surroundings that create a localized thermic effect, this reliable wind gains strength, making Viana do Castelo the ultimate spot for kite and wing lovers.

Now, here’s a little secret: when it comes to wind, you can’t always rely on the forecast. On a sunny Nortada day in Viana, you can expect an extra 10-15 knots beyond what the forecast predicts. 

That’s why Viana is known as the windiest spot in all of Portugal!


Summer Season

The prime months for kite and wing is during summertime, when the thermic effect is up to the max. Starting from April, through May and June, it hits its peak in July and August. September and October has still some good windy days. During this season, you can count on robust north winds consistently blowing at an average speed of 20-30 knots or even more, starting from noon until sunset with the perfect wind direction, side-to-side-on.

Winter Season

Ride all year round at this incredible spot! In the winter season, there's a change in the wind's direction, bringing in southerly breezes. These winds blow right onto Cabedelo Beach,on a side-to-side-on wind direction, just perfect for action. November to March, offer a great opportunity for advanced kiters and wave enthusiasts to conquer some truly amazing waves. For beginners, the winter months may be a bit more of a challenge.


The water temperature in Portugal at your dream Kitesurf Spots is between 15 to 2o degrees in Summer so you need a Wetsuit 3/4 or 4/3
The wind direction in portugal, in viana do castelo- kite voodoo is from north with Nortada wind during summer and from south during winter
Water temperature and Wetsuit

Your comfort in the water matters, so here's a little tip depending on the season: For the months of April, May, June, September, and October, we suggest going with a 4/3 wetsuit. It'll keep you cozy and warm specially on a strong windy day! When it comes to July and August, you'll be more than comfortable in a lighter 3/2 suit. The water temperature here can be a bit warmer compared to some other spots in Portugal. That's because of the unique mix of water from the river mouth blending with the Atlantic Ocean.
