Tarifa September - kite size

Postby jocol » Wed Aug 29, 2018 10:48 am

Hi all,

I will be in Tarifa from 19- 25 september.
I am independent but beginner and I only have one kite - 12m Switchblade.
Should I bring it with me? Or is it going to be too big and I will end up renting smaller ones?
How is wind around this time?

Thanks

This true. Check the forecast before you go. Can be a week of Levante or one with Poniente

Levante (E): expect winds from 20 to 50 knots.
Poniente (W): 10 to 25 knots.

Chances are 50-50

If there is a nucking Levante (+40 kt) you can drive to Caños de Meca (60 km north) or Getares (20 km east). There can be a difference of 15 knots or more.
