Where should I go for holiday this year (4-6 weeks in July)? Any Informations on nice Kitespots are very welcome!
How about Cuba, Belize, Tobago, China, Asia, Japan?

I pray for wind

why not all?

If you stay that long, you should go to a place where it is not too expensive.
Asia is good, a spot with manywind has been posted here before.
Also Dom Rep, Cabarete should be interesting.
Cuba is beautiful with lots of empty beaches, but not really cheap.
Also Isla Magarita is great for kiting, but don't know about the conditions in summer.
France is nice, as well as Netherlands.

You won't get a better place than Puerto Rico. I have looked.

@ Toby

Holiday is my secound surname;-) Would be nice to travel around an visit all those spots...

The DomRep is perfect, I've been there last Sommer, but the Kitebeach starts to be to crowdet for my preferances. If we decide to go to Cabarete we will rent a jeep and find some nice spots whithout tousends of kites at the sky. I hope this is still possible?

Last month, went on tour looking for places to kitesurf around Cabarete. In October last year, check on the South Coast. There are lots of places to go if you're an intermediate rider (can go upwind). RE: crowding, directly in front of the two hotels in Kite Beach is where most hang out to view the action, learn, practice tricks and ride. When it gets crowded, you have a huge area downwind and another huge area upwind where experienced riders go if there are too many beginners, etc. Or past the reefs, about 200meters out.

Hello Boys,
July is a good month for Bali, not crowed yet and can find a lot of different spot for riding: flat water, waves and is quite cheap.

Thanks for all input guy's. We decidet to go to puerto rico. Does anyone know where to stay and where the best kitespots are?

Im a bit confused. There is a spot called Isabella, shark, others are named as ocean park... or should we stay at San Juan? Where is the best place to be?

We will rent a truck for some days to explore the island. Any windy place at the south cost?

What Kitesice we shold bring with us? Is AB 8.4 and 121.8 or Nahis 12 and 16 OK or do we need smaler/bigger?

Thanks for all information.
Royce, maybe we meet each other, would be a plesure for me!

Hi,
Ok, I know you have decided where to go but I just wanted to say that Egypt is really nice in the summer. I just got back from a kite holiday in Hurghada at a very nice spot called Magawish with a new kite center. Not many people on the water and fantastic conditions. The guys at Magawish had lots of equipment to test as well.

Cheers,
