I took 13 and 9 Primadonna2s and rode every day. Generally 12/13m c kite/hybrid weather but they do get the odd blowy day, so pack a smaller kite just in case (I got my 13m,board,bar/lines, harness and clothes in a DaKine Kicker bag at 18.5kg and my 9m went as hand baggage - I didn't have to pay any extra)

the wind has been epic, and it looks like no end in sight for the next week.

it was the best Feb that I've seen in the last 6 years. hopefully march will do the same.

The internet forecasts make little sense - the closest I found was the windguru.cz short range NAM 12km http://www.windguru.cz/int/index.php?sc=139 (scroll down a bit)

Looks pretty good at the moment, and was excellent in Feb.

Forecast means nothing!!
when i was there it kept saying 7 knots, but
everyday buy 12:00 it was 17, i think
the forecasts go buy cloud wind, and not thermal,
its thermal which produces the kick ass wind over there, hot sunny warm,
and hot chicks, what more do you want!?!?! : :naughty: :rollgrin:
