THE PONIENTE (SPAIN)
Marrying travel and scientific study
An episode from the series WIND QUEST
Antoine Auriol, kite-surfing world champion, introduces us to Tarifa, at the southern tip of Spain and Europe, where the Poniente and Levante winds, which are competing over the Strait of Gibraltar, blow in 2 opposite directions.
The lives of the inhabitants of Tarifa have been impacted by these two winds which, over the last 20 years, have become an important source of income thanks to sports enthusiasts and ecotourism.
