I'm still researching for my kiting destination post-christmas. Options #1 & #2, Vietnam & Philippines, are closed and doesn't seem likely they'll open anytime soon, so I pass on them.
everyone says South Africa seems great, but, because of inconvenient time difference for me ( I will be 2 weeks maybe on holidays, but the rest of the time I'll be combining kiting with working & I have to work more-or-less London's business hours), doesn't seem to be good option for me. Also, anything more to the West that GMT -3HRS (which is just Fortaleza time) is just inconvenient too (so that takes out CostaRica or Mexico ) , since that would mean I'd need start working in the middle of the night (2-4AM), which makes everything a big hassle.
Which leaves me with:
*CaboVerde - reliable wind Jan - April, not expensive
.... and not much more
in couple places I have read that wind still shall be good in San Miguel do Gostoso area in Brasil (many commercial / schools websites say it shall be good there even till March!). Unfortunately, in the same time there are very little reviews / blogs from ppl who actually went there, yet alone in period I ask about, so I'm not sure what's actually the situation there.
So, after this long introduction to the case, eventually comes the question:
* Have any of you been to San Miguel? What are the winds there (especially asking for post-xmass period, but anything helps)? Is it really as good for kitesurfing as some websites claim? Is Galinhos spot really as good as some people say?
Also, is internet any good in that area? some research in internet say it's 4G there through mobile connection (that's more than enough for me), that true? I'd work remotely from my laptop, so that's a must & I don't want to fully rely on local WiFi, coz if it fails, I'm in trouble.
or, the side question: what is Western Ceara like post - christmass? can I still hope for some good kiting in that period or it's rather a lottery, and may be good but bad as well & not worth risking?
well, that's it. Thanks in advance for any help, cheers
P.S. I'm 92kgs rider, have switch Element 14M so anything from 16-17knots (on flat), or 18-19knots (on open sea) makes me happy
well, then I better go somewhere else, since later in January it won't rather get any better, rather worse / same at best.
