I am in the process of planning a 3 month kite surfing holiday and I am looking for recommendations on where the best places to go... I am a novice/intermediate rider who's looking for locations where I can have access to good instruction to progress! Other things to consider would be access to surf breaks to surf, good local vibe and relatively cheap. I have considered Central and South America but it seems as though January I will miss the season in Brazil. I've also considered South Africa but it seems like at my level of kiting it will be a bit too advanced for me. SO any and all suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
Cabarete - cheap, but weather driven wind during the winter (its not the same as the summer thermals)
Aruba - pricier but most reliable in terms of wind
Bahia de Salinas in Costa Rica (google "Blue Dream Hotel kitesurf") - thermal driven wind pattern in the winter with thermal squalls.
