Hey, anybody been to Taiwan? What kite sizes should I bring and which wetsuite will be the best??

Are there any groups on FB where people exchange their sessions and stuff like that? I will be staying in Taipei but on the weekends I'd love to explore the kite-scene, but without a car it is gonna be a little tricky I guess :/

cheers M

If you are coming in the next month and staying for a few months, you should bring kites in between 7-12 square meter.
You do not need wet suit in Sep. You can use a shorty in Oct and Nov. After Dec. a full wet suit is necessary.

People who live in Taipeikites at different spots depending on wind direction. I live in Penghu, 1 hour flight away from Taipei. It is always windy here after Oct.

A few useful links are listed here:

Good luck

Didn't know you were that close!
(That explains why you were talking about kiting over to 石垣島 and 与那国 :idea: )
Our winds are basically like your winds. :D
