Guincho ->PORTUGAL !

Postby Amb356 » Sun Jun 08, 2003 5:31 pm

Hello everybody !

I can go whith my brother(a windsurfer),in Guincho this week, but, I have do some search on net and I don' t find if this spot is good or no for kitesurfing ... It' is possible (My more little kite is a Free-air 7.1 and my board is a Kiteloose WK 140 but my weight is 65 Kg,so, i don' t kite if the wind is over 30 knots ...).

Thanks to all and sorry for my horrible english ... :oops: :oops:

The wind at Guincho can become realy strong, that means around 30 knots and more. There are some days with less wind of course . The waves can be around 2 meters.
There is also a nice current in direction to the rocks, so if you drop your kite be quick.
If you are lucky you will have some moderate days with winds around 20 knots and little waves. It's just a question of luck.

Take a look at the photos to have an idea.
In my opinion you will find better / more secure places to kitesurf in Portugal.

Enjoy your stage :thumb:

Guincho is the kind of place where people kitesurf when there is no wind in the spots around.Its very, very windy. So check first and the alternative portuguese spots . Good kite trip :thumb:
