During the last week of July and the first week of August every year, a round of the Kitesurfing and Windsurfing World Cup is held at Playa Barca, Sotovento. It’s held near the Rene egli windsurfing center, just south of Costa Calma.
It’s a free event, and there is a free car park. Marquees sell food and drink, and every night they have special music nights – bands, DJ’s etc.
In 2018 the event was held from the 25 July to 4 August. The GKA Kitesurf Strapless Freestyle (Men & Women) was held from 20-25 July, the PWA Windsurf Freestyle Grand Slam (Men, Women & Juniors) from 26-30 July, and the PWA Windsurf Slalom Grand Slam (Men only) from 31 July – 4 August.
