Malta - kitesurfing in October?

Postby Dr_Rosen » Thu Oct 10, 2013 6:33 pm

Hej
Urgent question :D
Flying to Malta on Saturday and will stay for a week in Mellieha Holiday Centre in Mellieha Bay.

Any kite surfing possibilities? Flat or waves?
Should I bring my gear?
Can I rent gear?

Thanks !!

Hello,

yes it is possible.
When the wind is from east you can kite in mellieha bay (ghadira)
north wind Armir bay
north west wind white tower bay (this is the most common wind)
golden bay or gneina when there is west wind

everything is very close but you will need a car

be careful the places are narrow and rocky and sometimes the wind can be really gusty, not for beginners

have fun

Malta is very windy. November to June the wind is on average 25 knots .... Now for October the season has not really started yet. You might get a day or 2 in 1 week.

you can check here -> http://www.windguru.cz/int/index.php?sc=47196 its normally pretty accurate! :thumb:
