How to Choose the Best Destination for your Kitesurfing Holidays?

One of the most important which can make or break your kitesurfing holiday is the location… If you choose the wrong location or visit it during the wrong months (when there’s no wind), it can ruin your whole experience. A kitesurfer can do fine even without a lot of amenities or other stuff… But a kitesurfer can’t do anything if there’s no wind! Similarly, there are a lot of other factors which can help you decide the best kitesurfing spot.

So without wasting time, let’s look at how to choose the best kitesurfing spot for the best kitesurfing holiday!

 

Wind

You shouldn’t make any compromise on the wind at all… When looking at a potential spot, always check how many windy days it gets in a year. Furthermore, also check the main kitesurfing season of the specific spot to ensure that you are going at the right time.

An ideal kitesurfing spot must offer a lot of windy days (steady and consistent winds) that are enough for kitesurfing or other wind sports.

 

Water

Another thing to check is the water situation in that specific spot. Ideally, you should be looking for calm or flat water since it makes it easy to ride a lot of distance. On the other hand, choppy water and big waves can make it difficult for beginners to surf in the water. In fact, it can even get dangerous if the kitesurfer is not skilled enough to handle the big waves.

 

Accommodation

The last thing you would want on your kitesurfing holiday is to spend hours travelling between your accommodation and the kite spot. So to ensure the best holiday, always pick the spot which offers accommodation right next to the beach. And even if the accommodation is not next to the beach, it should only be 10-20 minutes away at best.

Besides the distance between accommodation and the kite spot, you should also check what type of amenities they offer. Furthermore, accommodation should be family-friendly as well if you are going kitesurfing with the whole family.
