So I live in Chicago but just got back from studying in New Zealand for 6 months.... when i lived there I got into kiting and surfing. Now that I am back I just ordered my own gear and am planning a trip to Nicaragua with some buddies from there.
Now they all surf and I am the only one kitesurfing and I was wondering if anyone had ever been kitesurfing on the West coast of Nicaragua, how it was, what I should expect, and all that jazz? After looking over various other posts I see that Playa Copal in Northern Costa Rica is a popular spot but there isn't much info on Nicaragua.
Oh Yeah, one other important thing! Since I am a newbie kiter (I've takin lessons but haven't had much experience) I could only afford one kite... its a new flat kite, the waroo, and they only had one size available... the 16m!
So a re-cap: New kiter, foreign country, 16m, 140cm board, weight about 170 lbs, and from the sounds of it the winds down there are strong!
Yeah... I brought the 140 becuase I read that it was an easy board to improve on and as I got better and upgraded boards I would be able to keep it in my aresenal for non-windy days... I am just praying I can get a student loan before I leave, I think I need to buy a 12m!!!
