Dream wave kiting location this summer

Postby AlwaysCharging » Sat Mar 13, 2010 12:56 am

I am looking for the perfect wave kiting destination anytime in the months of June-Sept, anywhere in the world. I'm hoping to find:

- Consistent 20+ knot wind (preferrably starboard tach), sideshore or side off.
- Consistent surf in the overhead+ range
- Preferrably a right breaking point, but definitely a real wave with barrel potential
- Hopefully something going on when the wind is not there (surfing, diving, nightlife, cultural) - this is my lowest priority.

There are a lot of great locations for port tach, but I much rather be riding on my frontside. I've tossed out places like Peru & Sumbawa for this reason. What I am looking for is as close to Ponta Preta, Cabo Verde as possible since it doesn't get swell these months.

Does anyone have any suggestions??? Does a place like this even exist?

Mauritius should be good in this time. But remember, this year nothing is normal!

If you go in the early summer then California will be great.

Cabarete in the Dominican Republic is the perfect place for you! Good and consistent winds, nice waves, not crowded in september, I can really recommend.
Had a nice accomodation at Hooked Cabarete, find it on google!
