You can't kite a lake Nicaragua - you will get sick. http://www.inmotionkitesurfing.com/2014 ... ng-schoolsjuandesooka wrote: How about Lake Nicaragua area? Looks plenty windy. http://goo.gl/maps/n0TNz
Agree...harsh about that pollution.southflorida wrote:sevtliy, I just clicked on that link about Lake Niacaragua. What a damn shame.
Nicaragua could benefit huge from tourism of our type, and it's so close and otherwise really inexpensive to the USA.
Makes me wonder if the spot up in Mexico in Oaxaca state has some unknown pollution or hazard as it's rarely mentioned, and it freakin' blows there.
We keep this up, we'll need to start a new thread! But it's a no wind Saturday, so why not...I hear Salina Cruz is industrial and not very nice, but there is shelter. There are kite and surf missions to the area, but I believe they mostly go from a surf camp somewhere to the west ... it is mostly a surfing area for tourists, empty sand pointbreaks is their advertisement....but I see strong offshore winds added too, hmm.southflorida wrote:Juan,
I agree that it looks desolate at Salina Cruz...but at least it's a town with some hotels and certainly food/beverage, probably no night life as we kiters may be used to.
Yes, it is totally off shore wind there, so going in the ocean probably means having someone watching with a boat - but too much wind? Hahaha - yeah, I know, too much for my 12m and 14m for sure, but I'd buy a 7m if I had that kind of wind. Our best high-class problem: too much wind!
The lagoons are interesting - the shoreline is perpendicular to the wind, almost exactly, so it would be pure flatness and high wind, kind of like Namibia at the speed strip? Not sure if it blows 40 knots right at the shore there, but I've seen over 40 knots plenty of times off shore of Salina Cruz on the nullsoft site.
Maybe it's horribly gusty? no way to really tell from nullsoft or google imagery...
