Wave riding spots for Jan/Feb/March

Postby manckite » Fri Nov 06, 2009 12:28 am

Can anyone recommend good spots for wave riding with good wind, not too cold. Looking to leave UK in Jan - and be gone til the money runs out.
Thanks.

I did my research, and for waves I'll be in Barbados the first two weeks of January.

Capetown: Jan/Feb will we be in the second half of the windy season and in March it can still be good. Don´t know where the Rand stays currently but you won´t run out of your money that quickly there. Take a small kite with you.

Western Oz, Capetown and Barbados.
If I were you I would go to western Oz and travel a bit
With the same $$$ you will stay there for a longer time, meaning catch more waves :-)

Thanks for the replies.
I'm a fair kiter, just getting started in the waves.
Franscisco - heard PR can get pretty ugly with the locals/+surfers in the waves - true or no?
Can anyone comment on wave riding in Vietnam or Kenya/Mozambique this time of year?
