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.
Mid-May to mid-June, flat water, quiet spot uh? A few from me:
- Italy: SW Sardinia at Porto Botte or Punta Trettu
W Sicily at Stagnone (kinda lagoon, not the most beatiful imho)
- France: Beauduc, Almanarre (only with offshore wind, which I really dont' like)
- Spain: Fuerteventura at Sotavento (busy)
- Greece: Lefkas (not sure how busy in that period)
Plus, in Northern Africa it should be very windy in Red Sea (Soma Bay... very flat water) and Dakhla (really consistent wind)
