Cheap place to kite Dec, Jan, Feb (Maui alternative)

Hey guys I usually go to Maui to kite. Amazing place for sports: Kite, surf, SUP, spearfishing, diving, cycling, etc. I probably can't afford to go there this year. I'm looking for some place cheaper. I see a lot of places listed in the "wind by month" thread, however, Nothing seems close to Maui......

Is there a difference in wetsuit quality?

Hey guys

If I'm comparing let's say a 3/2 shorty suit from body glove (ie. $80) vs ripcurl (ie. $180), is there a real difference in warmth and flexibility or is it all marketing?

Re: Thailand: Hua Hin vs Rawai (Phuket)

Phuket is a tourist town, dirty, very run-down, dirty (again, air pollution, traffic, litter). All tourists at beaches. Food not good. It all depends on your standards. It's not a water sport place.

Maui in winter - a lot of rain right?

Hey guys

I've been going to Maui every winter but only for short period (2 weeks). I want to go this year for 2 months between Dec and Feb.

I know wind is not lit but is it really rainy? Every year I get rained on, on the north shore, but not sure if it's just by chance.
