lonlywindsurfer - Hey, "lonelywindsurfer" You mixup some things: With no waves, You are only a boardsailor! Remember - NO WAVES - NO SURF - NO WINDSURF.
So stay away from Tarifa, and, if You wanna do windsurfing, go to Maui instead.

Empty in winter - The posts above are from ppl who ahve gone to tarifa in the peak month - Summer. I kitesurf and I can tell you it is bloody crowded. I have also been in winter and 1) the waves are much bigger 2) it is empty!
