About

Sitting opposite the splendid Île de Ré, you’ll find the well-known seaside resort of La Tranche sur Mer.

The seaside resort situated in the Vendée department attracts up to 100,000 tourists a year, and it isn’t difficult to guess why. The long powder white beach stretches over 13 km; this alone is enough to attract board sports lovers. Add 5 spectacular spots that can be adapted to beginners, experts and everyone in between and you’ve got a destination that can be listed among the top water sports spots in France.

However, this spot is much more than a simple hangout for surfers, its versatility appeals to many wind sports enthusiasts. At La Tranche sur Mer you can also practice slalom and freeriding.

In summer kitesurfers can enjoy the thermal winds that blow between 15 – 20 knots (maybe even 25 knots on a good day). The morning winds are usually weaker, which is why experts advise you to wait until the afternoon. You will also find a lake of 6 hectares perfectly adapted for kitesurfing novices.

In winter however, the western winds can reach up to 35 knots – this is fantastic for experienced kitesurfers.
