Hello kiters,

I think the best place in the world for long dowinders is northern Brazil.

Other than that, where in the world?

Constant wind, no freezing water (for safety), and open beaches.

What hazards?

Thanks in advance

Andre

Zansibar, Tanzania is very pleasant. But, yes, Northern Brazil is great.

I did a 30 km downwinder this year in Mui Ne, Vietnam. Windy almost always! Its also possible to do much longer runs of over 200 km. My knees dont like it though. Perhaps on a hydrofoil.

Waves on one side, slicks on the other.
