wind in portugal next week

Postby zDad » Sat May 18, 2013 1:44 pm

Hi there,
I am going in portugal all next week. forecast looks silly!
which would be the spot with higher chance of wind from monday? monday looks promising in the north like Viana, but after? How reliable is windfinder/windguru in may? Is it too early to hope for additional thermic knots? We are 2 rutinated kiters.
Who's there? Whatzup?
thanx

both Viana and Guincho will be good for the whole week. Today Guincho was firing in the late afternoon. There's already some thermal effect and it will only get better as the week progresses and temperatures rise. The swell is also on the increase from tomorrow until saturday. Have fun!
