I'm spending December in Oahu - first good holiday for a while, so going for the whole month!
Is there likely to be much kiteable wind at that time of year? We will be loaded up with surf boards so might be able to negotaite space with the family for one kite. My largest is a 10 - is it worth bringing?
Staying on the North shore, so any advice on the nearest kiteable wave spot at that time of year ?
Thanks very much!
Mokuleia is the closest, but unreliable in winter. Gets very shallow too so bring some extra fins.
December is a month where anything can happen. Anything from 30ft waves and nuking wind or 30 ft waves and glassy
Often the wind is stormy in winter, but can be epic..so yeah I'd say worth it.
In winter you can have weird wind patterns that opens upo spots that otherwise isn't kiteable.
Just don't go if you do not see anyone else there. Usually if no one is there it is a sign that you might not want to go out.
