I am posting in http://www.kite-surf.com on the forum, thopic Cumbuco, about wind conditions since March 2004, just what it blows, no fantasy.
Probably it's a very boring reading but as a clue, is the only way to figure what the conditions were, if you read the posts you'll see that it blows almost all year, I know the hungarian group of kiters were very unlucky but that things happen. I am kiting more or less 320 days per year, I'm 70 kgs weight, sometimes with 18 mts (this year around 30 days) the rest of the time with 14 (perhaps 30 more days) and most of times with 12-10 and 9 mts.
Cheers. CRIS

speaking of Ceara Brazil, the further North-West you go along the coast of Ceara, the more wind you get.

Wellington from September to December. NZ's capital city gets blown off the map all year but it's in our spring when it really starts to rock.

This is when the temp difference between the Antarctic and the tropics are at it highest and hence big pressure differences occur the roaring forties are stoked with energy and blow harrd.... and Wellington is in the firing line.. add to that the fact that the wind gets fired through cook straight.. which doubles the prevailing NW windspeed in Wellington and the result is lots of days that require 6m kites and smaller for harbour kitesurfing. just as well you can head to the open Kapiti coast where the winds are a much more manageable 20-30 knots.

Just a damn shame that cook straight doesn't have a huge sandbar connecting the north and south island.. near brothers island would be quite nice.
