Hi guys,
I'm tryingo to organise 15 days during the end of december or January for a wave-kite vacation.
I'm quite experienced kiter but I just started with strapless surf ( still not perfectly turning ... ) and I fell in love with it.
Can you suggest a kite spot with good wind and nice, not difficult waves in this period? I'm italian and I was thinking about Brasil but I don't know where....
Thanks for the help!

Without any doubt you should consider one of world's top spots:

Sao Vicente, one of the Cape Verde islands.

The choice of spots is great : for instance, in one bay you have 4 wave spots all right breaking, each for different styles and abilities (from a reef break with small waves that do not have much power for total beginners to a point break with waves up to 7 meters for super experienced riders).
Then if you want a right break, go just around the corner to the outside of Baia das Gatas.
Then again, if the wind is super strong, you can visit .... (I can go on and on).

One warning: do not give up finding the flights. By searching on the usual sites (e-bookers etc) and airline websites, you may only find very expensive inconvenient flights. A hint: do not rely on the charter flights flying into Sal and Boa Vista (Cape Verde). The internal connections to Sao Vicente are terrible.
There are convenient flights (at most 2 connections with short waiting time) at reasonable price between 400 and 1400 euros (return) from 57 different cities in Europe. Send us a message so we can help you find these flights.

Hi Walkingcat,
Cool, no problem.

I hope that Sal and Boa Vista were not too disappointing. Sal and Boa Vista (lot of tourists, not much else to do apart from hotel-beach scene) are HUGELY :!: different from Sao Vicente and Santo Antao. Sao Vicente and Santo Antao have a variety of stunning landscapes including steep mountains, lush green parts, empty beaches against mountain backdrops, very few tourists, are much more authentic Capeverdian, and have much more to do and to see).
So if you did not like Sal and Boa Vista, we hope that this does not prevent you from one day, trying Sao Vicente. We have not had any clients who were disappointed.

New Zealand is rocking spring westerlies in December. Awesome waves down here in the Taranaki.

I suggest Penghu, Taiwan. I always ride strapless here. It is very easy at my spot. Check out this photo.

Wind is always good in winter.

You can kite 25 days per month with 9M kite or smaller.
