San Juan Puerto Rico

Postby darippah » Sun Jan 27, 2013 3:05 am

Got a trip planned for next sunday . Any recommendations where to ride? I'd like to do some flat water and waveriding locally near San Juan

also anyone know how the winds usually are? I'm considering bringing a 21m s3 in case the winds get real light to avoid bringing my LW board

Thanks in advance

Right now its hit and miss, but getting better.

Good luck finding flat water in SJ, waves easy

Have fun!

Thanks jrfiol. Sounds like you think I should bring my 21 M just in case?

I would recommend smaller, check the forecast for the week on Saturday before you leave.

This is the forecast for the beach you should go to:

http://www.windfinder.com/forecast/playa_del_condado

You'll want to ask for Ocean Park, in Condado. There, you will find a kite scene. Don't be afraid to greet and ask locals for help. From there you'll get directed to other spots if not satisfied.

PM me if you have further questions or concerns, but basically... shorts, kite and beers.

I've never seen a big foil kite out here.

Kindest regards,

That is right, it looks like no wind anywhere on the island. SUP much?

There are some spots on Puerto Rico that always have wind but you may need to get out of san juan. Call Juan Carlos with 15knots kiteboarding school and he could help you find the wind. (787) 215-5667
