I have been looking on the forums and it looks like most of the answers to this question are a few seasons old now.
Im after some info on the best spots in Europe from mid May to mid June. I will have about 3 weeks away. Im on a tight budget so accommodation will be on the lower end but I'm happy with that. I just want wind for the three weeks. I want flat water to practice some freestyle tricks. Preferable is a quiet spot. Im not a fan of 100+ kites on an area that should have no more than 50 on it.
Also any advice on Rhodes, Greece especially as i may be able to get a free flight there through work.
I have a 12m and a 9m to take with me so wind ranges to suit. I would prefer not to be renting kites due to the budget.
You guys have been great source of advice in the past so thanks for that.

The weather must be sunny and the wind forecast must show a few knots from S/SW. Never mind how many knots are listed, it's a thermal so when the forecast says "5 from S/SW" we actully have about 15 knots in the afternoon.
If the wind is from N/NW, it's not good.
Just ask for any further info!
