after living for 5 years in Cape Town directly on the beach I have to relocate to Chennai India
I am a kite-addict, so of course I immediately started searching for kite possibilities, wind stats, etc.. But unfortunately I couldnt really find good information. Wind does not look too bad, there are surf schools on several beaches and some of them list kiting on their website (however when I approached them, I didnt really get good info). I found an old newspaper article about "the one kiter in Chennai", which gave me a bit of hope...
Do you guys know anything?
Since Sri Lanka and Maldives is pretty close, I might have to go there for a longer weekend... but of course, it would be great to also be able to kite directly in Chennai... even if it is on a 17. If required, I might even consider getting a 21 Foil - I am THAT DESPERATE
The gear in South Africa is pretty cheap compared to Europe/US. Since some brands are made in Sri Lanka and the income level is also quite low there, is there any chance of buying gear cheap in India / Sri Lanka?
