Best kiting spots for mid April until mid May/ Asia

Postby vewi » Mon Jan 20, 2014 5:56 am

Hello, hello,

I have started kiting in November and loved the first introduction courses I did. I have vacation from mid April until mid May and want to use this time for kiting. I am having difficulties finding the right spot for it in Asia/ Sout-East Asia.

Would you guys be able to help me out?

Thank you for your tips!

Cheers,
Veronika

Mui ne is not a beginners spot. Boracay is better bu lots of kites in a small area.

Hi..

Good for you to have discovered kitesurfing..:)! Its an addictive sport!

I am in the Philippines now and if I were you i wouldn't go to Asia from mid april and may. It is totally right that the two spots is friendly to beginners, but there is NO wind from marts-june in Asia.

If I were you, I would check out Venezuela. Its cheap and it has a lot of different spots. AND IT HAS WIND IN APRIL AND MAY :)

Let me first introduce myself. I have been kiteboarding since 2007 and have kited in some amazing places in the world, from the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean, France, Greece and Vietnam in South East Asia. I have been also teaching kiting as an IKO instructor passing on this wonderful sport to others.
The time has come for me to find a great place in the world that is exceptional for kiting and share this spot with other people who have the same passion about this sport.
I have ended up in Banda Aceh in Sumatra, Indonesia where the wind blows 15-30 knots from May to October. Here, I am working together with a friendly family run guesthouse on this Paradise island.
This is the place where we have chosen to open Seabreeze Kite Club in a beautiful location called Lhoknga.
This little Hidden Gem is still relevantly undiscovered and has so much to offer.

Thanks for reading,
Maurice

Boracay is awesome but the winter season is coming to a close until the summer winds, I just left mid march and the wind was dying out :(
