There are not that many kitespots in Stockholm... And there are even less during the summer, there is one spot though. Torö in Nynäshamn... (hope you have a car) On cloudy days you can try Näsbypark, a few miles north o Stockholm. I think there are road discriptions on http://www.kitesurferclub.com under spots. You can ask questions on http://www.steffo.nu. You should be able to get better help there.

Good winds,

Olle

Here's a site for a kiteschool in Stockholm and Gotland - http://www.kitesurfskolan.com
You can email them at kitesurfskolan@telia.com

I was going to go to Sweden this summer and they told me these spots near Stockholm were good:
Täby/Näsbypark i NE-SE, Gålö/Skälåker i NE-E, Torö/olika ställen från E-N, Dalarö/Schweizer Badet i S-SW.

Hello,
I found this -very- old post with the search engine.

I'm french and I may go working at Stockholm.

I wonder if there are kite beaches nearby. The situation may has changed since 2002.
I'm used to kite from very tiny beaches, so I don't mind if the spot is awful.

And what about snowkiting nearby?

Regards,
Frederic

If you don't mind ugly spots, Sthlm is the place to go =)
However, you can take the boat to Gotland, it's only a few hours aways. Mauricio Abreu (spelling correct?) went there recently and loved the place, according to a local newspaper. Very nice flatwater spots as well as wave spots.

Snowkiting is a bit more difficult to find as it doesn't snow that often near the coast but sometimes it does. However, you can go by train or car to Sälen and Åre to get some really nice snowkiting.

Check out the winter spots at http://spotguide.kicks-ass.net/vinter/default.asp

Oh, and you can always go to the west coast to experience sweden's finest spots =)
