I'm a father of a young child (under 1 year) and my wife and I have decided that we are willing to move to anywhere in the world for 1 year, before we plant our roots. We will consider all locations, but legally we can easily move anywhere in Europe or USA but I'm sure other areas will grant us temporary visas if we try hard enough. I speak English and intermediate Spanish.
So where would you live?
- Rideable Wind All Year
- Enjoyable Weather
- Family Friendly
- Wonderful Cultural Experience
This is a once in a life-time opportunity for us and we'd love to hear from anyone who has insight about great kite spots globally.
PS: We currently live in Florida, USA.

Sounds like you were hanging around a rugby club at 2am rather than one of our beautiful beaches....

Australia (where I lived before) was pretty good for kiting. During the "not so windy season" you still had at least 3 good days/week for kiting.
wind and waves never that far from wherever you live,
great food and wine, port & medronha.
lovely climate, Lovely people
and a great culture plus you have access to the rest of europe and north Africa easily,
easy flights to Cape Verde, Azores, Madeira et al
cheap living and an amazing empty road network.
and you`ll pick up the language easily with a basic knowledge of Spanish
My wife and I did the very thing you are thinking of on the birth of our 1st child, having driven round Europe for year before her birth. we returned to the UK for her arrival but soon decided to go and live in Portugal for a year before planting our roots, we stayed 3 years and only returned to have our 2nd and start schooling, real earning and keeping the inlaws happy.
As soon as the last daughter, #4 is at university, we are off back there,,,, happy days
How about Texas?
