Where to go in January?

Postby alohasurfer73 » Thu Jun 13, 2013 9:19 pm

Hi guys!
I'm planing a trip somewhere for 3 weeks in January. Where do I go to get consistent winds and loads of flat water? And maybe some nice ladies :)

Cumbuco/Brazil? It fulfills all your requirements.
www.cumbuco-oceanview.com for example. :wink:

Or go to the San Blas Islands Panama, miles and miles of flat butter and 12m. Then head over to Chame for a while on the Pacific side.

Capetown. Great athmosphere, not cowded, loads of different spots and conditions, good party, good food and loads to see in case there is a no wind day.

Penghu, Taiwan.

Check out the wind statistics of the past four years.

WOW guys!
I all looks and sounds amazing! I have been to Cape Town for the last 3 years, december through january and its been awesome, but I want more flat water this time, lagoons and stuff, and a bit weaker wind :)
Has anyone tried the Philipines?

Am from Cape Town and can recommend Brazil - general Cumbuco and surrounding NE area. I go there every year for 2 months during Cape Town winter and can confirm it ticks all your boxes.
Wind every day but instead of CT 6.0 and 8.0 you will probably use 9.0 and 12.0 - also many flat water options - and NO wetsuit :-)
Not the choice of food or restaurants that you have in CT but that is more than made up for with the night life option that you mentioned ;-)
