OK, so we have a pretty good database and discussion on this Travel forum about wind trends in different spots around the world....so now how about a sticky that maps out the wind + wave combo by month.

I am currently wondering where is a good spot for wind + waves from May thru August. I don't care if the water is cold and I don't need luxury accom...but clean water and relaxed vibe and not too crowded is pretty important. Cultural interests outside of kiting a big bonus!

Thanks!

(and if there is already such a thread let me know)

OK, thanks Toby...

just to be clear...looking for wind + waves at the same time...in other words good wave-kiting conditions.

in a perfect world I would want 9+ second period, 3-5m swell, and preferably 12m max kite wind range.

Thanks ksr.

I looked on Google Earth and can see a few spots there that could be good.

What's the season there for good waves and wind?...mostly winter months I imagine.

(note: I am trying to compile a good list of locations that includes the months/season that both good wind and waves can be expected)
