speaking of Ceara Brazil, the further North-West you go along the coast of Ceara, the more wind you get.

Wellington from September to December. NZ's capital city gets blown off the map all year but it's in our spring when it really starts to rock.

This is when the temp difference between the Antarctic and the tropics are at it highest and hence big pressure differences occur the roaring forties are stoked with energy and blow harrd.... and Wellington is in the firing line.. add to that the fact that the wind gets fired through cook straight.. which doubles the prevailing NW windspeed in Wellington and the result is lots of days that require 6m kites and smaller for harbour kitesurfing. just as well you can head to the open Kapiti coast where the winds are a much more manageable 20-30 knots.

Just a damn shame that cook straight doesn't have a huge sandbar connecting the north and south island.. near brothers island would be quite nice.
