April-May surf spot suggestions- Carribean/Brazil

Postby sails » Thu Mar 26, 2009 4:10 pm

Hello everyone!

I've decided to take some time off from life to practice my kite-surfing for about 6 weeks between April and end of may.
I only recently started surfing, I'm getting up and going with the wind and crashing occasionally.

I'm looking for warm climate, flat shallow waters, little coral and preferably no sharks with good constant winds (I weigh 53kg and I have a 7m kite - but I can switch for a 9m or 13m). I may be asking for much but was recently kitting in Kenya and conditions there were just that (except the wind died mid-feb).

I'm also traveling alone and on a budget so it'll be nice to find a fun spot where I can meet other surfers too.

Was thinking of Brazil(not sure of the winds) or somewhere in the Carribean (may be a little too pricy though).

I'd be greateful for any information you may have- locations, beaches, night life, etc...
if you know of anywhere else in the world with close to perfect conditions these comming months- I'm open to suggestions.
:bye: Thanks.

Brazil (at least the northeast) does have the best winds. it can be excellent, but can be rainy and lighter winds as well. Other places are more likely to have daily winds at this time of the year.
If you go later in the year, for sure Brazil.
