Buenos Aires Wind

Postby snowkiter3 » Mon Feb 04, 2008 10:09 pm

I was looking into moving to Buenos Aires from may-december and saw that the wind is the best between oct-jan but was curious how much riding can be done in may -sep and how the winds are then

Forget about it. Most of our kiting is done in thermal winds, and those blow from October to February, or March at the best. During those months, you can expect to kite 10 to 15 times a month. But from March on, the wind dies. We have front systems now and then but don’t expect to kite more than once a month, with 10ºC air and water.

You can expect to kite 2 to 3 times a week on 12 to 20 knots wind.
