weather is being a bitch right now! one week you get 28-35º under a fierce sun, then next 20-25 and raining.

i would wear a long suit, but if u are a guy from the north and you are used to cold weather a short one would be fine. But i think the long suit will give you "more" water hours

here you have many cameras in tarifa http://www.spotfav.com/

also do not pay much attention to the forecast (well, you have but...) here in spain we call the winds
levante and poniente (it refers to where the sun comes, dawn, and where it go, dusk)
generally levante winds are very strong and gusty (if the forescast expect 20 you may get 30..or at least 20 with gust of 30) and this levante is dry and hot.

in the other hand poniente usually is more constant, but also cooler (but in may is no problem)

hope you have good winds!

Hi ! I always use two types of wetsuit in Tarifa depend of the wind:
With levante I use now 3/2 and during the sumer no wetsuit sometimes.
With Poniente mostly 4/3 but sometimes when day is sunny I use 3/2mm.
All winter in Tarifa is with 4/3 mm.

Cheers Tomek from kiteobsession !
