Thank you DWX for your insights,

Would you care to give us more details about Paje?

Perhaps you could comment on the following:

1. When does the season starts?
2. How safe staying and eating and drinking from hygienic point of view? Any shots one better do b4 visiting Africa?
3. What about those downwinders you referred? How easy to organize one and how long they are!?
4. any other pros and cons of the staying / flying/ kiting / and anything else!?

Thank you for any info!

Zansibar was lovely in January.
The most exotic virginal landscapes I've ever seen.
It's the original spice island, so the spices are truly exquisite, nothing like the bastardized versions we know from Indian cuisines.
Great for relaxed, exotic downwinders!
Just watch out for those five inch spiders! They aren't Halloween leftovers, as I thought at first! THEY ARE REAL :o
OK, maybe I'm not recommending it...

All great suggestions , cheers Guys

Anyone been to Cape Verde in January ?
I was in 19-31th December '16 on Boavista. I used 10m kite - other tourists 8-12m - locos were on 7m wave kites. It was warm (>25C) although we had a sand "storm" meaning flights could not land (no ILS at Boavista airport - not enough visibility by the flight rules) so we were force to continue our vacation for additional week for free. Sal would be better islands for flight operation. Riu Karamboa at least had a lot of people & activity for family. But for kiting better place (both TT and surf) was Ponta Antonia at north shore for on-shore trade winds. We booked daily jeep trip there with loco-kiter from hotel's 'surfshop'. But kiteshop reps kited in front of hotel.

"Sand storm" - TT close to the beach and waves higher outside

The Marshall Islands have some of the best kiteboarding/surfing in the world and January is smack dab in the center of peak season.. I have few spots left on both of my weeks down there. See details below:

Anyone been to Cape Verde in January ?
I've been there in mid december and it's absolutely fantastic. High season starts in February but in January I guess you'll kite everyday. And better of all, it's close to europe. Praia is very beautiful to visit.

Cheers, Jose.
