Dude to say Curacao is not windy or a great spot is like saying that Maui sucks for windsurfing and Oahu sucks for surfing or that the DR is not a great kitesurfing place.

The place blows everyday, don't believe me go look at a map and tell me where the island is located. In the heart of the Carribean trades. Average winds are higher than Kite beach, closer to MAui wind speeds and it blows morning noon and night. To the guy who went there... bro go again, If its not windy there then you should take up golf because light winds will follow you around forever. Bring a samll kite down there or you will sit it out on the beach. As for only 2 windsurferes on the island....when did you go there 1940? The place rocks...uncrowded and great winds. PS as for more facilities...the best thing in the world is to go to a country or beach and be the first person ever to kitesurf there. Only someone who was learning or needed lots of help would want more facilities. Personally I look for less!!!
Uncrowded windy beaches and no one else kitesurfing......isn't that the definition of paradise? gO LOOK AT the average windspeeds...like for months on end it blows over 25k during the day.

The average wind direction is 094' that gives you about 74miles of coastline to explore. You are going to find paradise for kiting there guaranteed no doubt at all.
