Only left handed waves?

Postby violinistapazzo » Mon Oct 30, 2017 7:24 pm

travelling around the world, 85-90% of the time I face left waves...the problem I'm regular, so my destiny is to surf most of the time in back...

So I'm here to ask advices and experiences to create kind of list of right handed wave spots...

All the way up the east coast of South Africa are endless right hand points. Challenging to get to many of them on a kite, but can be done.
