Kitsurfing in Taiwan?

Postby petras » Fri Sep 11, 2009 10:23 am

Hi,
I'm going to visit Taiwan. And I’m wondering should I take my kites with me. Is it good condition to kite surfing at the end of September. If it is, is it some good kite spots around Taipei?

In advance, thanks

I live in Okinawa not to far from Taiwan, I would think the wind patterns are kind of similar (not very strong during summer unless a Typhoon hits) however it should blow quite stronger N, NE winds though the Taiwan Straight starting October/November.

I suggesstion two place for kitesurfing.Guan in and Neipi.
Guan in near the tauyuan airport. So you can call taxi to there.
Neipi in Yilan is need take one hour trip.

Guan in VIDEO in september.

stick to the west side spots this time of year. guangyi is probably the closest to taipei but junan is better. it's about an hour south. guangyi is far too polluted which in taiwan standards means it's about 100 times worse than anywhere else in the world. we're just getting into the winter weather pattern so sept can be hit or miss. this week looks pretty good 10-12m weather pretty much all week. winter is usually 6-10m, summer 9-14m and typhoon season can be 5-7m with the usual close out.

look for "tonys spot" in junan (chunan) as he has fresh beer, some food, a bunk room for rent, and knows the general deal.
