More or less ok.

But I think Brazil is too big ... there is season all year if you move around.

categorizing entire countries as "windy or not" makes it completely useless

Apparently Nz is useless all year round... Hahaha.

It needs to be per coast line/windy seasion. Not per country. East and West coasts are typically windy at different times of the year.

It is irrelevant to do it by country; It has to be by spot

80-100% wind in all of Turkey in July and August 😂. It's only one spot in the whole country (Gökova) that comes close to this.

Bad!
Generalizing Brasil , Chile or Argentina as units its no good. They are way too big with specific spots that can vary a lot

so also this site could be the same shit, isn't it? http://globalkitespots.com

I really wonder why they create these misunderstood and not properly correct web sites. They are probably just for commercial gain....
