Has anybody been kitesurfing on the Kerala coast in India, thinking of going in lateOctober/ early November for a few weeks not really for kitesurfing but thinking of packing a kite or 2 in case it gets windy. Any tips on spots or wind strenghts would be good.
thanks

Bill

only beaches on Goa coast listed so far on http://www.kitebeaches.com

But if you go there, please load up beach info and pictures to the site to help out others who will follow you in the future.

Thanks and have a great trip!

Hi Bill,
We hit Kerala last October, more towards the backwaters up on the north of the state, about 3-4 hrs from Mangalore on the coast of Kerala.
The wind was aprx. 12-15mph, fairly consistent from 4pm onwards.
The Arabian sea is really warm, with small waves at that time of the year.

The locals were telling us that January gets stronger.

Keep in mind that Kerala is 650km of virgin coastline (photos attached - endless beach), except from the south where the resorts are. Accessing the coastline is always tough since infrastructure is very primitive in most cases, primarily on the northern parts of Kerala.

Kites (nor tourists to that matter) are not a regular sight in these traditional parts of the country. We just arrived from our 4th trip to India a few days ago!

From Kerala, Goa is only a couple of hrs away with a flight and there are some interesting spots also, although the wind is just starting in Oct / Nov.

Alternatively you can fly to Maldives (another 2 or so hrs from Trivandrum) where you can get some good riding (photo attached)

Best of luck and let me know where you ended up.

Our next trip will be on the East side of the country in a few months.

:bye:
