Looking for advice on good spots to go on Hydrofoil vacation

Postby Icharus » Fri Jan 22, 2016 2:16 pm

So I am hoping one of the great things about Hydrofoiling is that it will open up new locations - where theres always some wind - but hopefully not enough for the windsurfing fraternity - and dare I say it less kiters too.

Golf de Rosas in Spain is great example - the wind isn't the best for a freestyler- although it always delivers every few days.

My family would appreciate a spot that doesn't sandblast them when they are sunbathing.

I have a million airmiles so could go anywhere and am looking to book something.

Anyone got any thoughts?

Here in Scotland in winter - its either 0 or 30 knots this winter - I haven't had the foil out for months now. I would prefer somewhere surfy with a vibe - but watchya got?

hello icharus,

- I was on a scotland windsurfing and surfing trip in august 93', great trip, all around the
coast from Edinburgh to Edinburgh (counter clockwise),
kiteboarding, foilboarding and also sup (wave and just paddling around) and surfing as
combination I think in this great holiday I would have 250 % water time with the toys of today.
Also on lochs I think foilboarding will be really interesting...
I have to do another scotland trip soon.


For your question:
Family does not like to be sand blasted ? Well most don't like.....
Which time of the year you want to travel ?
What ist your budget ?
You should look for a spot that is windy, but not too windy. There are more of these
spots than the other way round. Hundreds of destinations are less than mediocre
for Windsurfing, well OK for Kiteboarding and perfect for Foilboarding.
Just take no spots with shallow water, and take also a small kite with you, you will
need something smaller than 10 meters when other kiteboarders take 14.

Some spots for foiling - with not too much wind - summer -
I think in Europe You could go to (just examples):
- Korfu - http://www.kite-club-corfu.com/pages/en ... f0bdfbcc95
- Marina di Grosseto (Italy)
- Vieste (Italy)
- Lefkas (Greece)
- Ulcinj montenegro
....

Regards

Wolfgang (Austria)
