Re: Kitesurf in Japan

Keep Okinawa in mind if your ever looking to get some subtropical island exposure! This bears repeating. :wink: Especially right now... Best seasons are fall/winter/spring..and we ride year round, with most crowds visiting in winter, to escape the colder mainland. ... after it has been forecast tha...

Re: Kitesurfing in the south of Japan, Okinawa, Ishigaki, Ko

Ishigaki is a beautiful island with lots of things to do. Kitesurfing is possible however from what I hear it is a bit limiting in terms of wind direction. Not too many spots and it is very rocky around the beaches. The rocks cold be the reason why Ishigaki seems more popular with paragliders than ...

Re: Taiwan - kite sizes - wetsuite

I live in Penghu Didn't know you were that close! (That explains why you were talking about kiting over to 石垣島 and 与那国 :idea: ) Our winds are basically like your winds. :D A guy who lives at the north end of Ishigaki posted this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ie6Sw440acQ (I live at the south end....

Re: Kitesurfing in the south of Japan, Okinawa, Ishigaki, Ko

Ishigaki might be far from Taiwan, 與那國島 is only about half way, 120 KM from Suao. On a northeast wind day, it might be possible to cross it in 6 hours. The waves are choppy with that wind, so it might be too tiring to stay up for the whole distance - but, yeah, would be interesting to try it and se...

Re: Kitesurfing in the south of Japan, Okinawa, Ishigaki, Ko

Is it possible to kite from Taiwan to Ishigaki? You will probably need a passport and a visa. :thumb: :D To jan_hou: the shortest straight line distance is about 250km. Depending on where in Taiwan you start, the overall direction you'd be going in would range between east-southeast and northeast. ...
