They all say that Indonesia has no consistent wind. That the wind is too light and you need big kites and even bigger windsurfing sails. That might be the case in Bali where winds normally never exceed the 15 knots.

But there are a few locations in Indonesia where there is definitely much more wind.

At Tabuhan Island, we are blessed with near constant wind of up to 25 knots from May all the way up into November.

Each year around May, the South Easterly trade winds reach Indonesia. This marks the end of the raining season and the start of the dry season, or as we like to name it, the Windy Season.

Where in Bali we have come to accept these trade winds will hardly ever blow over 15 knots, in East Java and in particular at Bangsring Breeze, it’s a whole different story.

These same South Easterly trade winds get funnelled through the narrow strait between the islands of Bali and Java. Add the mountainous terrain on both sides of this strait and the temperature differences between the land and ocean surface temperatures and you will have the perfect recipes for strong, constant wind.

As a cherry on the pie, right there where the trade winds are the strongest and most constant, lays a small uninhabited atol enshrined with white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, named Pulau Tabuhan.

Pulau Tabuhan is described as a picture perfect flat water spot for those who love freeriding and throwing their latest tricks in super smooth water.

Beautiful untouched scenery, combined with steady trade winds of up to 25 knots between May and November, will make this the newest kite -and windsurf destination in Southeast Asia.

Thanks Toby!

With conditions like Tabuhan Island sees in August and the riders already registered for this event, I am sure it will be awesome!

Hi all,

Just a little over 3 weeks and this year's Tabuhan Island Kiteboarding Pro will take place on August 22 - 23 at Tabuhan Island in the Banyuwangi regency of East Java, Indonesia.

Plenty of international riders have registered themselves.

There are still slots available for this event, so if you and some of your mates would be interested to join, please check our website www.tabuhanislandpro.com and register yourself.

Tabuhan Island is easily accessed by flying into Bali and taking a short 20 minute flight to Banyuwangi.

Alternatively you can take the bus or hire a car and drive from Bali to Banyuwangi.

A big thanks for all the support and hope to see more of you at Tabuhan Island this August!
