Why Do We Combine Health With Kitesurfing?

Because kitesurfing is so addictive it becomes the reason you want to eat healthily, to get in shape, to bounce out of bed…you just want to spend more time on the water and you don’t want a flabby body holding you back. Trust us once you’re inspired you won’t need motivation or willpower to stay lean and healthy ever again!

What’s Included:

  • 6 nights accommodation (Sunday – Saturday) in our converted farmhouse out in the wilds of nature this is the perfect place to disconnect but also only 20mins walk from the centre of Tarifa. Most of our clients come alone so this is a great way to meet your future kiting buddies
  • Full (No) Tantrum Program Included (we’ll do in a week what normally takes 6)
  • Breakfast and Lunch each day (excluding transfer days) prepared to Sam’s exacting standards according to our (No) Tantrum system of health and fitness to GUARANTEE you shed kilos of unwanted body fat over the week
  • 12 hours of world class kitesurfing coaching, our instructors are some of the most experienced in the world to ensure you’ll be on the board by the end of the week
  • Full Kit Hire – GET YOUR OWN KITE throughout your lessons, this alone effectively doubles your learning speed as you’re not sharing the kite with a partner
  • 1 hour private consult with Sam where we go over your health goals and build a personalised plan for you
  • Personalised meal plan, fitness plan and individualised shopping list
  • Learn to cook the food which will not only fuel you on the water but give you the body of a surfer (so you feel great in your wetsuit!) and you can eat as much of it as you like, no calorie counting or going hungry EVER!
  • Recipe pack
  • Transfer from Tarifa to the accommodation on day 1, just let us know when you’re booking if you want a pickup
  • Kitesurfing Specific Fitness Package (and we wont be spending hours in the gym!)
  • Daily Beach Transfers (so you don’t need to hire a car)
  • Rescue Boat Service (so we can kitesurf on flat waters every time the famous Levante wind blows)
  • No Wind Activities are available if we can’t kitesurf. Wakeboarding, Surfing, Paddle Surfing, Mountain Biking and others available on group request or you can just chill out. Wakeboarding is THE BEST cross training for kitesurfing and so is our first choice whenever the wind doesn’t behave
  • IKO Certification allowing you to hire kit at other centres upon completion of your course
  • Full Liability & Accident Insurance

All Rider Levels Welcome (even those who’ve never kitesurfed before!)

The (No) Tantrum Program

If we’re going to convince you our methods work, we need to get results fast, we also need to ensure anything we do with you over this week is sustainable when you get home.

Our (No) Tantrum Program is designed to do just that. You can expect to lose 3 kilos of body fat whilst gaining 1 kilo of lean muscle over the course of the week without EVER going hungry, counting calories, points or macros or spending hours in the gym

What You Can Expect:

Weight Loss: Most people lose 3-4 kilos of unwanted body fat over the course of the week but what’s more important is they learn how to keep on losing 3-4 kilos every week when they get back home, until they hit their target weight. We wont be counting calories or starving you (in fact you’ll probably eat more than ever), we wont be following any fad diets or latest craze’s and you wont EVER see a meal replacement milkshake or bar. Just healthy (and delicious) food, perfectly prepared. Over the course of the week we’ll teach you how to cook several amazing recipes and create your own personalised food and meal plan, so you know exactly how to feed yourself for the rest of your life.

Muscle Gain: Most people gain 1-2 kilos of lean muscle over the course of the week. And this is done without spending hours in the gym…in fact 15 mins a week is often enough. We’ll also, of course, build out your personal program so you know exactly what to do when you’re back home

Energy: A lot of people write to me after the week telling me they’ve got so much energy they feel like they’re 18 again and that their kids are struggling to keep up with them!

Improved Recovery Time: We’ll be stealing a few secrets straight from the playbooks of elite athletes and special forces to teach you how to recover from exercise much faster…so you can kitesurf all day, and then get up again the next day and do it all again (this also means you’ll have much higher tolerance to stress and be able to deal with a lot more pressure and keep your head).

Resistance to Injury: Our Heal Like Wolverine module will teach you everything you need to know to ensure you become much harder to injure so you can live life with 100% passion all the time.

Be Inspired: If you can’t currently kitesurf you’ll be riding by the time you leave, if you are kitesurfing you can expect to improve your skills massively.

What Others Say:

“I was pre diabetic before going on this course, with a blood sugar of 8.3, 3 weeks after coming back it was down to 6.5…my doctor couldn’t believe it and now I’m kitesurfing I’ll never let it go back up again.”

David Sanders

One of the best holidays of my life..what more can I say? Can’t recommend Tantrum highly enough!

Sherry Carlisle, Veterinary Surgeon

“I’d literally tried everything before finding Sam. Now just a few weeks after finishing the course I feel like I’m 20 years younger and I’m still going…whatever he’s charging pay it…”

James Nolan

I’ll let Paige tell you in her own words

Where You’ll Be Staying

Situated at the gateway to the National Park 2 mins drive from Tarifa is the farmhouse we’ll be calling home for the week.

Set in the middle of a Rewilding Project you’ll be immersed in nature, whether it’s the huge variety of birds and small mammals which call the surrounding land home, or the larger horses, donkeys, goats, chickens (and occasional wild boar) which freely roam the lands.

We’ve chosen this spot, as part of our ethos is your environment has a huge impact on your health. So by surrounding you with an environment as close to a natural habitat for humans as we can, we’ll amplify your gains 10 fold.

With a huge open plan kitchen, open fireplace, giant communal area, outdoor terrace with BBQ and wifi throughout the property you’ll be able to relax in comfort at the end of each fun packed day.

Some Of The Food You’ll Be Eating*

*exact recipes may differ depending on ingredient availability. All our recipes are gluten and lactose free.

  • Sweet potato with an avocado and basil salsa and fillet of almadraba tuna
  • Our famous home grown pumpkin pie, made with almond flour pastry and a blueberry topping
  • Raspberry superfood ice cream
  • Steak casserole with plantain chips
  • Creamed vegetables, with yuca and wild caught salmon steaks
  • Disgustingly delicious chocolate brownies
  • Surprisingly tasty spinach and cacao smoothie (I know it sounds awful but it’s actually a firm favourite!)
  • The BIG Tarifa Salad, green leaves, with beetroot, peppers, sweet potato and prawns all served with a honey, mustard dressing

We’ll also be teaching you how to cook most of these recipes so you can keep on eating delicious food when you’re back home.

Your Kitesurfing

Your Own Kite & A HUGE Range Of Different Kite Sizes Just For You


Having your own kite means you spend 2 – 3 times longer actually flying the kite (and not watching your partner have all the fun) so you get every ounce of value out of the time you have.

We have a whole range of kites from 4 to 17 m set aside just for you. So you will ALWAYS be on the right kite whatever the conditions. This is probably the single biggest factor in ensuring you learn 3 x faster (as most schools have a lot less kites which means often a compromise has to be made in which kite they take, meaning you can often end up with a kite which is the wrong size for the conditions)

We also have 4 different bars each with different line lengths just for you, so we can perfectly adapt your set up every day for the exercise you are learning.

Never Wait For Wind – Not Just Kitesurfing


Yes, this is primarily a kitesurfing holiday, BUT we don’t like to sit around on the beach, waiting for wind we cannot control. For this reason we do not depend on wind but instead like to maximise your time here. So if there’s no wind, or the forecast is poor we have a range of other activities you can choose from if you feel like it, like wake boarding, surfing, SUPing or pretty much any other activity you can imagine. You see…

Board Skills Are The Key

So we have picked the best cross over sports, both in terms of the skill sets they provide (which cross over into kitesurfing) but also the conditions they need to work best (ie. no wind). That way wherever you go in the world, whenever there’s no wind you’ll have something else cool that you can do that will also improve your kiting.

The Friendliest Team


We choose instructors based not on how good a kitesurfer they are (as we are confident we can quickly make them very good at this) we choose them instead based on their ability to teach, their ability to communicate effectively and most important their ability to make learning and your holiday fun for you. This really shines through, and we are well known in Tarifa as being the friendliest school on the beach.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Tantrum family.

Personal Service


We are a small business (and really want to stay that way) we enjoy making friends with our clients and really want to make sure we give a highly personal service. We deliberately only take a few people on any of our holidays at a time (despite all the business consultants I meet telling me I need to expand, expand, expand!), so you can be assured loads of time on the kite and a LOT of attention from our instructors.

We do this for 2 reasons, because we really like getting to know you guys, you really make this job what it is and we want to say “Thank You” by ensuring that you have the best time possible out here with us. There is of course another slightly more selfish reason. You see, I want to be running this business when I’m 95 and the best way I can think of ensuring that I am, is if you go back home and tell all your friends how amazing we are!

We limit numbers on this course very carefully so you can be assured a personal service so our coaches will be able to give you a LOT of attention. However this also means that this course books out quickly so please book early to avoid missing out.
