Kiteboarding February, hot and flat :-)

Postby Theboy » Mon Nov 28, 2016 12:50 pm

Hi kiters 8)

I would like to ask you all with experiences, where its good idea to go in February.
I am traveling from Vienna ( austria ), I would like to go somewhere, where it's hot weather and the best will be flat water :-) Also can be a small chop :wink:
Do you have some ideas ? I will be very happy for some your post's and your experiences.
I was looking, that Mexico can be good but SPLOCS.COM show me that in february there is 18-20 degrees celsia, what is so so weak :-(
I was in Cuba and Dominican republic, so I wanna change the spot this time.
(You think SRILANKA can be good ? or ? )

Thank You to all !

Jojo
( sorry for my english )

Your english is good, Jojo. :thumb:

Since no one else has responded to your question, I'll suggest the Turks & Caicos Islands (TCI). Flat water, warm conditions. February is usually good for wind. It is more expensive than Cuba or D.R., but it's a very good kiting destination. Wish I was there now!

Langebaan in South Africa ;-)
Windy, warm, flat, no jetlag, maybe direct flight from Austria (at least from NL with KLM)

Go check out Costa Rica with Kiteboardingcostarica.com Kent and the gang are awesome - flat water, relaxing off the water, and consistent wind... what more can you ask for?

Planning a trip to Turks & Caicos next month. Can you recommend places to stay, close to the launching places?
