Hey guys..

Im going to Alvor in the mid of April for a week of kitesurfing..
Could any of you guys tell me how the wind conditions is at this time?
I think we're going to surf in the lagoon for the most of the time...

Thermal winds doesn't really works at this month, we were there last year at the end of april, we rode 2 days, then, we gone to tarifa to be sure to catch winds (too much winds !!)

It like lotery ;) ! but you have more chance to win... and Alvor is a great place to kite !!

I will be working next season in Lagos...

I've heard that the wind is gusty over there. Is it true?
Gusty wind is what I dislike the most when kiting! Mainly when you are trying to progress and learn new tricks!

Are there alternatives with steady winds in that region?
