Kitesurfing destinations EU (covid-19 situation)

Postby Theboy » Wed Jul 29, 2020 5:42 pm

Hi kiters,

I wanna go to some kite trip in EU
Beginning of august ( 4/6/7 ) for 7/8/10 days
I was thinking to go to south sardinia around punta trettu spot. ( I was there last year and it was nice )
Maybe some better options ? : ) I was in Sicily already so something else maye....

@Toby

I am in Sweden currently...good winds!
And nice local crew.
But, wetsuit needed...although a shorty is fine if you are not that girlie ;-)
A beautiful country...maybe if you want to see something else...and no masks...but people do keep distance.

Can only tell that the Netherlands are great, till so far the best year even with loads of wind days and lots of 30kts+.
About 20-25 degrees, Wetsuit needed or sometimes a shorty. Masks nowhere and everythings open.

Yes, I have been and can highly recommend it.

Good winds and warm air and water.
But east coast gets better winds, west is rather light.
You need to get in touch with locals to know when the wind is on and where...you might be at the wrong spot while they have a blast at another close by.

Nice people and nice food

Sweden got some nice trees.

But can't give them enough credit for dealing with Covid-19 in a reasonable and rational way.

Next year we will see who did it right.
Also Economywise...

Back to topic 😉

You are in the south west?

Planning to go down to the Varberg-area myself - as soon as Norway can stop being so paranoid about Covid-19 in Sweden.
