Where in the world is your favorite warm place to kite in September?!

Postby Idrinksaltwater » Fri Jun 16, 2017 6:51 pm

Aloha fellow kiters! After combing the interwebs for days looking for some of the best places to kite around September I have decided to see what the opinions are of the kiteforum community. My lady friend and I have some well deserved time off around then and are looking for suggestions where to buy our plane tickets to. I have been let down a time or three by going to the "destination" kite spots only to find overcrowded beaches, unsafe conditions and companies who are more interested in making a buck rather than help this amazing sport progress. If you have some info you would be willing to share I am all ears and would really appreciate your time. Thanks!

There are many great spots in September.

Sardinia, Italy is a beautiful island, most tourists will be gone by then, warm water and sun stays, winds also ok.

Daily winds in northeast Brazil, all the space you want.

I think Greece islands also have good winds in September, so does Egypt.

Just look around here: http://se.kiteforum.com/spots

oahu , maui - yup - sept october - golden weeks - when swell meets wind t he end of 2ft windswell reef waves and the start of something way more exciting. Actually england is at its windiest and still warm...er - it is actually quite good at this time of year - some great spots on the right tide. very tidal....

september is the start of aussie season - may be a bit early

nz still 3/4 or 3/2 wetsuits but no problem with wind - best arrive december and leave march - nowhere better overall - cold and raing

squamish, canada - do they still have that nutbags mountain wind?

south pacific - might still be happening - super chilled and safe - most epic culture and scenery. tonga fiji, french poly, cooks etc...

In September Brazil is surely one of the best destinatnions for Kitesurf. Daily side-on-shore constant wind, warm water, many unspoilt spots, all kind of conditions - flat water, lagoons, waves, etc. - and a great culture tu discover! You won't regret if you go! Here you can find more info about spots in Brazil: http://www.freeridekitesurf.com/en/kite ... ts/brazil/
Enjoy!

For me, Máncora in North Peru, To the point that I am bringing a group down with Sensi Graves this September,
Your lady friend should come with us then you can meet her and she can show you all the spots (is a women's retreat)
Or you can go to Samana Chakra and Kike can take care of you he has the best kite school there and guides, here are the 2 links, hope this helps, hey maybe see you out there in September

In case you go to Sri lanka, dont forget to visit the islands north of Kalpitiya main land, here is a video. Butter Flat lagoon and 25knots for sure. https://vimeo.com/216382152

It depends a bit where you're starting from, but in general Europe is still pretty good in September!

My favorite are Greek spots, in September the mid to low season already starts so the spots get less crowded. My favorite spots in Greece are Limnos (Spot Guide: http://wakeupstoked.com/kitesurf-limnos-greece/) which is great if you just want to kite, are not looking for partying and just like being at the beach and out in nature, not much around.

Another amazing spot is Prasonisi on Rhodes island in Greece, which has waves and onshore wind on the one side, flatwater and offshore wind on the other. Again, this is no partying spot, so it's all about eat, kite, sleep, repeat there! (I this a video there a few years back: http://wakeupstoked.com/kitesurf-prason ... ece-video/)

The spots in Egypt are great in September as well! Like El Gouna if you like to party as well and have a little life around it (Spot Guide: http://wakeupstoked.com/kitesurf-el-gouna/) or Hamata if you just want to kite and dive, not much around but tons of space on the water (Spot Guide: http://wakeupstoked.com/kitesurf-egypt-hamata/).

There are many more good spots, like Tarifa in Spain (also has a lot of nightlife) or Fuerteventura or other Canary islands.
