Best place for kitesurfing lessons during January - March?

Postby kiterjohn » Sat Jun 05, 2010 5:00 pm

Hey Everyone,
Where is the best place for a beginner to take kitesurfing lessons during the winter months of January through March? Any country in the world is fine. Where is the best wind? Conditions? Shop/school location?
Thanks~
John

wind should be in South Africa, Thailand and many asian regions, like Philippines.
January also in Brazil.

Melbourne is great at this time of year, and GoKite is a great school there that will make sure you have great instructors and all the latest and greatest kit. Good luck

If you are looking to take kiteboarding lessons within in the US, South Padre Island is a great place to learn. Water is cool in January and February and requires a 3/2mm wetsuit. But warms up by march, and the wind is on all winter and spring!

La Ventana, Baja Mexico is perfect that time of year. Good place to learn and reasonably priced
