Hi Andy!

I was in Diego Suarez 11 years ago.
The closest beach is Ramona. It's a big lagoon around 10-15min taxi from the center. The beach is beautifull and it shouldn't be any problems for launch. I don't know about wind conditions but I guess there should be thermals at this latitude...
If you want to go to the east cost you have for about half an hour more in a jeep (road was difficult when I was where) ... you'll find a wave break and behind water is more flat.
West coast is further away. Around 1-1.5 hour. Once again you should found launchable beaches...
Well I don't know if this helps... it was a long time ago. But I'm sure that the locals will help you, there're very friendly!
I think I got some photos of these places so let me know if you're interested and I can email them to you...
And you could also try a post on foilzone.com , I think the boom kite team was there a year ago...
