Any advice on warm water places with good wind for May?

Postby isellina » Fri Apr 04, 2014 8:16 am

Hello everyone,

I'd like to go kiteboarding for 2 or 3 weeks starting on the 30th of april. I haven't booked my trip yet, because I haven't decided yet where to go. I was thinking about El Gouna, has anyone been here? It seems pretty touristic to me, can anyone give me any advice? I'm travelling alone.

Thank you! :-)

Good morning,

In May, it will be difficult to find a place with better wind and warm water than Kalpitiya, Sri Lanka.

It will be blowing night and day between 20 and 30/35 knots. Water temp at this time: 27 degrees.

People are super nice, and Sri Lanka is also culturally very interesting.
If you need specific advise on the place, get in touch by PM

Hi!

I was on Cape Verde,Boa Vista last year from 28.3-10.4. Water has 22-23 degrees,air 20-25 degrees,but the best part is wind,you dont have to worry will it be wind or not :D
It is around 15-20knt every day non-stop from november till june
( http://www.windguru.cz/int/index.php?sc=60&sty=m_menu ).

You need shorty and sun creem,because sun is very strong :angryfire:

Apartments are on booking.com and we flue with Tuifly from Munchen.

The food is good in restorans,you can buy everything in local shops... :cool2: :jump: :o ..

Flat and wave is on main beach of city Sal Rei(sideoffshore wind) ,wave on other side of the island-wind onshore(need taxi 30-40eur or rent-a-car 55eur).

For me is better then Egipt,not so touristic,people are good,wind all the time and waves! :wink:

Hello Iselina,

Indonesia.
Only Indonesia is more reliable then anywhere else.
We have constant wind from May-October. From 15-35 knots.
Waves, flat etc.

Not many people know this spot YET. But it is truly amazing.
Every year it is getting more and more kiters.
Warm people, great food, cheap.
