Kiting and Outdoor fun

Flaks is organised for sporty entrepreneurs that have an “It’s not a business, but a way of life”-mindset. Together we’ll go kiting, surfing, moutainbiking, etc.

An awesome and unique concept to enjoy your most favorite hobby together with like-minded entrepreneurs. The program with the other entrepreneurs was very interesting and inspiring. Next to this, there was plenty of time to go kitesurfing, get some work done or spend your day in the way you want it. I wouldn’t have want to miss this!

What is Flaks?

Flaks is the Norwegian word for 'luck'. Flaks is founded on the belief that entrepreneurs are increasingly location independent and that the Internet is also present in the most beautiful places of the world. We organise adventure holidays for flexible entrepreneurs, because we believe that luck sometimes could use a hand. Have an unforgettable experience together in an inspiring setting and outdoor scene while you can co-work under a palm tree. That's Flaks!

WEEK 1 (30 APR – 7 MAY) IS FULL

WEEK 2 (7 MAY – 14 MAY) ONLY 2 TICKETS LEFT

You bring your laptop, we'll take care of the rest!

Flaks-working in Tarifa

Tarifa is an authentic fortress town with a strong Andalusian culture AND international vibe. It is lively and laidback. The Mediterranean ‘diet’ is common daily practice. Every week there is a national, regional or local fiesta and if there’s nothing to celebrate they will invent something to celebrate. Tarifa is located in the most southern tip of continental Spain, along the Strait of Gibraltar in just half an hour by boat from Africa. Due to this prime location Tarifa has more than 300 days viento (wind) per year. With the 15 km stretched white sand beaches , this is THE place in Europe for wind or kite surfing. Tarifa is therefore known as

The Wind Capital of Europe

The town is located in a beautiful nature park which is one big outdoor playground. Besides watersports (kitesurf, windsurf, surf, SUP) Tarifa is a fantastic place for other outdoor sports such as mountain biking, trail running, rock climbing and scuba diving. May is the perfect month for a Flaks Working Holiday in Tarifa. Wind conditions are good, and both water and air temperatures are very pleasant. The town has a relaxed pre-summer vibe! The Flakscoworking holiday welcomes every adventurer and sporty person: from kitesurf newby to diehard windsurf pro.

We offer

Charming accommodation

We have an authentic Andalusian villa on a top location near Tarifa with wifi, an inspiring environment, good facilities, a kitchen, a living room, a swimming pool, large tropical garden, table tennis, volleyball court. Including breakfast, lunch, unlimited coffee and soda.

Comfortable workplace

In the villa we provide plenty of places to comfortably work on your project or business whenever you want. Ofcourse you can also take a poolside spot or have a coffee and brainstorm under a palmtree with other Flaks participants.

Network program

Because we all run our own businesses with different goals but many of the same challenges, we have substantive meetings in which we get to know each other’s business goals better and help and inspire each other to achieve these goals.

Holiday program

We organize various fun events to get the most out of your stay in Tarifa and maximize the holiday feeling. Included is one local style tapas night, a BBQ evening and a cocktail night. We also have plenty of optional events and activities in which you can join for free or for cheap.

Kitesurfing & outdoor

The villa is located in a prime location for kitesurfing fanatics. We offer Flaks! Discounts for kitelessons, kite rental and rental of other watersport and outdoor material. For non-kitesurfers the outdoor possibilities are enormous as well.

A lifelong network of sporty entrepreneurs

Flaks is more than only this one experience. Many of our participants return to our workations, but many also meet up in their home country. By joining Flaks, you'll become part of a very inspiring network of sporty entrepreneurs.
