Looking for someplace warm in January.

I was wondering if people who have kited:

1. Coche
2. Barbados
3. St. Lucia

Could comment on their experiences.

If so if you could comment on:
1. Flat water vs chop
2. How crowded
3. Suitable learning environment/Good School for beginner(girlfriend) at the body dragging stage.
:D :thumb:

Go to and read my review of those three places.
I was in Barbados in December and found very light wind there.

I Live in St lucia, it's great in jan, nice flat water, lots of room to kite and the tradewinds are full power in the windwards. contact tornado kite centre down there. also good for beginners.
I operate kite trips on my 57' yacht through the grenadines.......flat water, open to all wind and totally uncrowded.
