CUBA , when , where how?

Postby Fuzel » Sat Jun 14, 2008 1:21 pm

Hey all,

i need some information about Kitesurfing Cuba.
My girlfriend is gonna be working at a hospital in he south next year. When is the best time to go (4month) windwise?? Are there good spots downsouth or are they all in the north? whats the predominant winddirection and what is the wind like? do you need a car to get to the spots or are there any locals that could take you??
Any information appreciated or maybe a website where to contact some locals if there are any??

Thanks allready

I think the south side is f(cked for wind unless it is due south of havana, and still it looks like it blows constantly offshore. On the other southside near guantanamo looks even worse with not even offshore winds or winds at all. northside of the island looks to get all the good wind most of the year. Disclaimer, this is just from studying the cuban wind patterns last 6 years w/o actually being there.

If you are lucky half of your equipment will get stolen in Habana airport.
