WELCOME TO MONTENEGRO

KITESURFING IN ULCINJ

Montenegro has an area which can be compared to one and a half times the area of Greater London and is thus one of the smallest countries in Europe. Considering its size, the variety this small country offers is even more impressive. It combines kilometres of beaches, hidden bays, lively ports, picturesque mountain villages and a wild beauty in the interior mountain regions which is waiting for being discovered. Also for those who want to explore the lively nightlife in numerous discotheques, Ulcinj is the right place. So it is not surprising that Montenegro has been chosen regularly as one of the top tourist destinations of the world as recently by the New York Times, where it was rated as one of “The Top 31 Places-to-go Worldwide” and it ranked second in “Best in Travel 2013” in the Lonely Planet assessment.

 3 REASONS FOR YOUR HOLIDAYS IN MONTENEGRO:
  • breath-taking scenery and endless sandy beaches
  • many options for alternative activities (rafting, mountain biking, diving, partying, swimming and relaxing on the beaches… )
  • direct flights from many European destinations

Frequently asked Questions

When can I expect the best wind conditions for kitesurfing in Montenegro?

In general, winds are quite reliable from mid-May until mid-September. You will find the most windy conditions with 80% windy days from  June to August. Normally the wind starts at about 1 pm and lasts until dawn. Mostly winds come from the northwest in a side-onshore direction.

Which kite-size would you recommend?

Winds normally range between 15 and 25 knots. For an average kitesurfer (about 70 kg) we recommend kites between 9 to 12 square meters. Our rental equipment offers a wide range of recent kites and boards from North Kiteboarding and Cabrinha which fit almost all conditions.

Do I need a wetsuit for kitesurfing in Montenegro?

The water temperature during the summer is about 26 degree Celsius and the air temperature is more than 30 degree Celsius. Boardshorts and Lycra are sufficient for kitesurfing during this period. In the spring and autumn months we recommend  a 3/2 steamer, an overknee or a medium insulated longsleeve wetsuit (depending on your temperature sensitivity). In our kitesurfing courses we provide you with high-quality wetsuits from ION without extra costs.

Which requirements do I have to fulfil for the rental of kitesurfing equipment?

To guarantee that you do not pose a risk to yourself or others, you should be able to go upwind as a requirement for rental at our center (equals VDWS level 5 or IKO level 3). In case of doubt or without a valid kitesurfing licence we may have to check your kite-surfing level directly within the context of the obligatory spot introductory briefing, which is included in every rental for free.

What are the conditions at the spot like?

As Montenegro is not so well known yet for kitesurfing as many other spots in Europe and as Ulcinj has a big kite zone of around 2 km, it is not too crowded. Advanced kitesurfers will find enough space on the water. As a beginner you will find perfect conditions as our kitecenter is able to provide a 250m-teaching zone with standing area, where we exclusively instruct our guests and thus there is sufficient place to practise kitesurfing safely and without stress.

Do I have to consider something special for my journey to Montenegro?

No. There is no need for special arrangements which are not needed for any other destination in Europe too. For entry you only need a valid passport (no visa necessary for EU-citizens). Security standards are comparable to Central Europe and there is a good health care system as well as good hygienic standards. The official currency is the Euro, which you can withdraw at the local cash machines.

Why should kitesurfing be learned in a kitesurfing school?

Kites can develop a lot of power and thus kitesurfing can be dangerous if you try to learn it on your own. By taking a course in a kitesurfing school, you quickly learn how to handle the kite safely and in order to minimize the risk of injuries, we practise how to act and react in critical situations. Furthermore, you gain solid knowledge of kitesurfing and you learn the basics for safely dealing with your kite and board step by step.

Which equipment is included in the course offers?

In our kitesurfing courses the complete equipment needed is provided, including kite, board, harness and wetsuit. Additionally, you also get your own course handbook for free.

Where can kitesurfing be learned most effectively?

It is easy and safe to learn how to kitesurf in shallow water with a standing area. The beach of Ulcinj in Montenegro is thus perfect for beginners to get familiar with this fascinating sport. With a wide standing area and mainly side-onshore winds, kitesurfing can be learned most easily, effectively and safely in Montenegro. Through a combination of well-trained instructors, beginner-friendly and modern equipment and an optimal teaching environment, you can make your first (and of course a bit more advanced) steps in kitesurfing with a minimum of risk and a maximum of joy.

What is the best way to get to Montenegro?

The easiest way to get to Montenegro is by plane. There are several direct flights to the airports of Podgorica or Tivat, which are both about 90km away from our Kitecenter. From these two airports there is a shuttleservice available. Alternatively you can also travel to Dubrovnik airport in Croatia which is about 140km away. Depending on where you come from traveling by car might also be an option. There is free parking at the Kitehouse available.

Is there a shuttle service?

Yes, we offer a shuttle service from the airports of Podgorica and Tivat (please book in advance) for a price of 60 Euro for an ordinary passenger car and for about 90 Euro for a van. We also offer a daily shuttle service between our kitecenter on the beach and our kitehouse or other accommodation nearby for free. Alternatively, at the airport there are several rental car providers.

Are there any safety precautions?

Yes, there are always a rescue boat as well as certified life guards on our beach. Furthermore, the members of our beach service make sure that the safety rules are respected on our beach sector and they act as helping hands for starting and landing the kites. For sure, having fun is a basis of our course concept, but we most certainly also teach you the basic security rules and train you for emergency situations in a safe environment to assure that you will have fun with kitesurfing for a long time.

What are the prices in Montenegro?

Even in tourist areas and on the beach the price level in Montenegro is much lower than in Central Europe. For a coffee or a coke you normally do not pay more than 1.5 Euros in a bar. For a beer you will pay about 2 Euros and for a pizza in a restaurant about 5 Euros.  In particular, we do recommend the excellent fish restaurants which serve fresh fish at a good price every day.

What else can I do in Montenegro apart from kitesurfing?

Montenegro offers a lot of alternative activities such as rafting tours, mountain biking or diving. For relaxing you will find a 14 km sandy beach, which is divided into a swimming and a surfing zone. You can enjoy the evenings in a relaxing way at our beach bar or at a barbecue at our kitehouse. However, for those of you who want to experience the lively nightlife, there are lots of bars and discotheques in Ulcinj town as well.

When does the season start and when does it end?

Our kitesurfcenter is open daily from May to September. In 2018 we start on May 19th and close on September 9th.
