Caribbean

Postby Fraser » Mon Feb 16, 2004 6:48 pm

I'm planning an epic trip to find the wind in the Caribbean. Anyone out there with info on the best time of year for wind/weather in the following places;
Bahamas, Turk & Caicos, Dominican Republic,Puerto Rico, Antiqua, Barbados, Tobago, VZ.
Any other info on kitespots, accom, nightlife etc would be handy too!

The upper half of the Caribean for the last 2 years running has had regular trades from the first week of Feb until the third week of August with random days kiting from August through Feb. Previous 4 years have had trades from mid December throught August. Anything from sep throught Nov virtually guaranteed no wind.
