Anyone know of places to kite in Patagonia, Calafate, Ushuaia etc. ?

supposed to be good wind, but I suspect the glacial lakes might be a bit chilly.

cheers

Patagonia is one of the windiest places of the world. The problem is that usuallly blows too much 30-40-50 knots and more.
The best Saliling spots are Puerto Madryn at Peninsula de Valdes at the sea side.
If you want to do Lake sailing go to Bariloche (in the summer) and you will find a big lake (BIG) with strong winds. (30kt). Forget usuahia and cafayate. Good places to visit but not for kiting.
