Gran Canaria Las Palmas

Postby KitingT-rex » Tue Jan 21, 2014 12:32 pm

Hello there,

I am planning to stay in Las Palmas on Gran Canaria from September untill December. Does anyone have any experience with kiting on this island and especially in Las Palmas? I weigh around 75 kg. Which sizes of kite should I bring?

Hi KitingT-rex

I 'm from Gran Canaria.

September use to be wave month, and not so much wind. (50-60% kiting days), but then october and to december, use to have good winds. usually from 15 to 35 knots. Not so strong as June-August where use to have 30-40 knots everyday.

The most used kites here are 7-9, or 6-9 if you go with SB.

You can contact any of the kite/windsurf shops in Gran Canaria,

-www.pozowinds.com (my favourite, ask for Jonas)
-www.lpwindsurf.com

Both of them are in Pozo Izquierdo, and they rent, sell, fix anything, or any information about weahter conditions.

Anything else, just ask.
