We are going to Cuba, Varadero, next February. I heard that the customs can keep my equipment and that they can close the beaches when it`s too windy... anyone has an experience in Cuba ???
Hey it is a third world country any thing is possibel
U call Cuba a third world country? IMHO u never been there, cos if u have, u realized that Cuba is a poor country 4 sure if compared with USA or Europe, but not a third world country... a lot of culture there and as the same low and order... and much more the custom mans don't asck any thing if u r a tourist and don't have drugs or weapons, like in any other first world country
) About Kite a frind of mine, a well know italian kitesurfer, Fabio Balini, made a kite stage in Varadero... he had no probs apart the general curiosity of the locals and tourists.
So go to Cuba and have a lot of fun and... read something on the news group about your experience

and if you get in trouble somehow, make sure to be polite and have a few dollars which you don't need...
Just a little update, see KITESURF mag UK (http://www.windsurf.co.uk/kitesurf/issues/this.html
"Franz Olry is one of the greatest Kitesurfers ever. The last year has seen him chill slightly from the competition scene and get back to some roots riding. Here we see him in one of his Caribbean bases: Cuba"... so no dubt kitebording is possible in Cuba... and dollars are welcome as Euros like everywhere in the world
