Hi,

Does anyone know when windy season is in Raglan, New Zealand?

My cousin lives in Hamilton and I want to tie a visit in with kiting.

Cheers

Barry

NZ got wind all year round. Raglan good with almost anything westerly 10knots and above (5knots of current - talk to locals about staying safe - its super fun but you need a plan if things go wrong and current goes out for about 1km and can dump you in impact zone. Summer warmer (dec - march) but plenty of wind in winter too. njoi

Yep wind year round. Raglan is the home of the ozone design team... .... . . .


From hamilhole you can drive and hour or 3 and get to wind from any angle on any given day.
