Re: Hi I'm new, and Naxos in September

Hi there, Naxos is a nice choice but wind is a bet in September…usually Meltemi wind (North winds) start to blow in end June/ beg July and last until end August/beg September… Naxos and the rest of Cyclades spots work only with North winds.

I happened to meet the windtrip guys last summer kiting together in Punda Par...

Re: Brazil end Jan beg Feb

no one will know if there is wind. Depends on the rain. Might be dry, might rain. Hit or miss. But if dry, you will have wind for sure. 14-40 knots sounds fine...I assume you will find max 30 knots, so 10-30 is most likely. Cumbuco like 10-25. You can rent a car, but you can only drive until Prea i...

It is difficult to give you directions as I have no idea on wind conditions of your home spot…locals will advise y...
