Venezuelans kite spots?

Postby athen » Tue Dec 11, 2012 9:28 am

Hello guys,
I would like to ask to your experience as kitesurfers and travelers,
which are the BEST kitesurf spots of Venezuelans island?

I am talking about Isla Margarida, Los Roques, El Yaques, etc.

I am looking for the best place there to spend 1 month of GREAT kitesurfing..
(I need good daily winds, NO off shore or too gusty winds, no boat use)

winds NO less than 20knts and not crazy-crowded kite beaches,
are my best choice! :thumb:

thank you!!!
Athen

As I understand Los Roques requires boat service as you can't kite off the main island (Gran Roques) where most people stays...

Coche is off-shore and El Yaque should be gusty (haven't been there yet though)

Hi


for a month uncrowded Kitesurfing without boats you will want to go to adicora..


Los Roques is great if you have money to waste it takes a boat to get the best of the island group and some luck to get the best wind..


Isla Magarita and Coche are nice spots..

Coche is great and there is a boat service on the spot in case of emergency, but is is small strip and gets crowded fast and the good wind gets rare because there are to many new cabanas build..

still a great spot if you are lucky to be without crowd..(it doesnt get better)


Adicora you just go there..stay there, no need for boats and nothing..

in Febrauary and March expect to use 7m and 9m kites and have wind every day..

also dont expect 5 star hotels..

Been to all spots mentioned (not adicora), and love El Yaque

In margarita island you don't need a boat but you can get a boat ride upwind and kite flatter less busy areas and then do a downwinders

There are regular boat rides to El Coche and you can stay there for a few hours to kite. Wind is offshore, el Coche creates a barrier so you get smoother water.

Los Roques is an experience but you need boat rides

El Yaque has a great vibe, I don't remember gusts being a problem and I was there 3 diff times, but not supper steady either (have not found that place yet)

Good luck. Max

Adicora is definitly THE option in venezuela. Wind everyday from end of january to end of may, still very windy in june and july.

Cross on shore wind, never croudy (except during PKRA), very large and clean beaches (compared to what you can find in other places over the world). Wind is incredibly constant. No gust at all.

Good spot for freeride , freestyle and also wave (there is a reef and also a shore break if you go on the right).

Lots of posadas and rooms to rent. Nothing will be 5 stars but is very decent if you're used to travel.
