Where to go on February 2011?

Postby esganmoro » Wed Sep 22, 2010 5:28 pm

I´m looking for BRAZIL/VENEZUELA/ some place near to go on february.
Is it there a place where i can find mostly side-on or on shore winds, flat water and warm weather?

Los Roques? Prea? MArgarita?

February is not the best month for wind in NE Brazil. But it has about 60% of wind. But bigger kites then normally (rather 11-14 sqm).

Caribbean (Isla Margarita, Los Roques, Adicora, Barbados, Aruba etc) should have wind in February, also Asia (Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Korea etc)

Souht Africa too, but has colder water, or you go towards Durban for warmer water

If you come to Brazil a good a option in FEB is Buzios, 150 km north of RIO DE JANEIRO.
If you dont get any cold front at the time( rare during summer), you´ll get 20 to 25 knots everyday.

I am in colombia right now, just west of cartagena, in a bay perfect for kiting in flat water. (shame there is NO wind right now!)
The locals tell me that from december till march it blows steady 20knots. i want to spend a windy season here!!

Bahia Salinas, in Costa Rica! February is the more windy month of the year. Wind rarely goes under 20kns, day and night. You have to bring a 6/7mt kite too, if you want to ride all the time.
Of course we have sde/on shore wind and warm water ;-)
Let me know if you need help to organize the trip here: write me to: bertoldi@racsa.co.cr
