A lot of people believe that they can only go kitesurfing during the winter and the summer season. In reality, you can also go kitesurfing during the spring season, which consists of the months of March, April, and May. After the long winter season, the month which brings the change is March which is also the start of spring.

With changing seasons and the slowdown of the harsh winter conditions, life starts to get back to normal. That’s why it would be a waste if you spend the spring season indoors doing nothing. The best thing you can do during the spring season is to pack your bags, grab your kites, and get on a kitesurfing holiday!
As the winter slowly leaves the scene, a lot of outdoor activities open around the world. Although kitesurfing continues even during the winter season, the air temperature and the water temperature are a lot better during the spring. Furthermore, a lot of spots remain open even during March, April, and May, such as Kalpitiya (Sri Lanka), Cape Verde, the Caribbean, and so on.

Why a kitesurfing trip in Spring?

Is it a good idea to go kitesurfing during the spring season? Take a look at some of the good reasons:

 

1. Warm Temperature

Say goodbye to the low temperatures during the winter season… With the cold air temperature, it is nothing short of a challenge to step foot in the water! But when you visit a tropical spot which is good for kitesurfing during the spring, you can enjoy more acceptable air and water temperatures! Since the temperature will be more acceptable during spring, you can also skip the wetsuits in a lot of places.

So the first benefit of going kitesurfing during the spring season is that you get to enjoy warm temperatures. When compared with the winter season, the spring season tends to be very moderate and acceptable!

 

2. Enjoy the Spring Season

Spring is the month when flowers bloom, and life gets back to normal after the harsh winter months. And you can truly enjoy this spring season by going kitesurfing to an exotic location. If you have already spent a lot of spring seasons in your home country, then it is seriously time for a change! In a lot of famous kitesurfing spots, you can see a different side of the spring season than what you are used to in your home country!

 

 

3. Good Conditions

During the month of March, April, and May (spring season), the kitesurfing conditions are good at a lot of different spots around the world. Generally speaking, the two things which can make kitesurfing possible during the spring season are the wind and the calm waters if you are a beginner. And if you are a pro, then you would prefer strong winds and some waves as well.

Fortunately, you can get good kitesurfing conditions at a lot of exotic spots around the world during the spring season! So if you want to make sure that you actually spend your vacations doing kitesurfing rather than waiting for the wind, then the spring season can be a good choice!

Best Kitesurfing Destinations for Spring Season

Now that we understand that the spring season is ideal for kitesurfing, let’s look at some of the best destinations you can visit:

 

1. Kalpitiya (Sri Lanka)

Sri Lanka is a famous spot for kitesurfing all year round, including the spring season. This is an Island country and, as such, offers a lot of beaches. Furthermore, this country is also known for its consistent winds, which are more than enough to surf the waters on your kites. However, one particular spot which has earned fame among the kitesurfers is the Kalpitiya which is in a league of its own!

Due to its popularity among the kitesurfers, you will find all the things you need in this town, from accommodations to sandy beaches to kitesurfing schools! And as for the conditions, both the water and the wind conditions remain ideal during the spring season as well.

Due to its popularity, Kalpitiya has also become the go-to choice for many tournaments and competitions… So although you will likely meet many other kitesurfers in the Kalpitiya, the more than ideal conditions means that your spring kitesurfing trip will not go to waste!

 

Margarita´s  team welcomes you to Sri Lanka with open arms!

2. Aruba

The next spot on our list is Aruba which offers a lot during the spring season, such as white beaches, turquoise waters, and strong winds. Basically, you can think of Aruba as the perfect kitesurfing destination in the Caribbean for the spring season.

And when you are exhausted from kitesurfing and need to wind down, there are a lot of other activities to explore as well. Furthermore, you will also not have any shortage of nearby restaurants and great accommodations, which is another plus point for Aruba.

On average, the wind speed in Aruba during the spring season is 20 – 25 knots. However, you can also expect some days with a wind speed of 15 – 20 knots, and then there are some days when the wind is around 30 – 35 knots. So although the wind can fluctuate a little bit on some days, it remains ideal throughout the spring.

3. Sardinia (Mediterranean Sea)

Sardinia is an Island country located in the Mediterranean Sea and is one of the autonomous regions of Italy. On the northern side of Sardinia, one of the windiest spots in all of the Mediterranean is the Porto Pollo. In this spot, the average wind speed is around 30 knots, and you can also find some nearby wave spots as well. So if you are a fan of strong winds and waves, then there’s no reason not to visit Sardinia this spring season!

Some of the other popular kitesurfing spots in Sardinia include the Punta Trettu and Proto Botte – Both of these are also ideal for kitesurfing due to mistral winds!

4. Tarifa (Spain)

Who can forget the Tarifa from Spain, which remains a popular European destination? The best part about visiting Tarifa during the spring season is that you get to skip a lot of the kiters. During the summer season, Tarifa is stormed by a lot of kiters which can make the whole experience a little hectic and tiresome. But if you visit during the spring season, you can avoid most of the crowds.

Furthermore, Tarifa is usually known for its pleasant temperatures during the spring season. But despite the pleasant temperatures, the wind remains consistent and strong, making it an ideal spot for thrill seekers.

If you are from Europe, then it can be a good idea to visit this spot in Spain… You will be able to save a lot of money on transportation and other costs since it is in one of the European countries. And if you just want to experience a different yet vibrant culture with good vibes, then Tarifa wins the prize once again.

 5. São Vicente (Cape Verde)

Sao Vicente is an upcoming spot in Cape Verde that has yet to catch the attention of the masses. As a result, you can get a more authentic and raw experience of Cape Verde by visiting São Vicente during the spring season. Since this place is relatively uncrowded, you will be able to enjoy it a lot more since there will be even fewer people in spring! And if you are into wave riding, then that’s yet another reason to visit São Vicente as well.

The best kiting season in the spot is from December to June – So if you visit during the spring season (March, April, May), you will be able to catch some major action and adrenaline-pumping rides (good winds and good waves).

For those who have yet to kitesurf or want to brush up their skills, Sao Vicente can be a great choice once again. In this spot, there are multiple kitesurfing schools with good instructors, and during the spring, the conditions are also ideal for new learners.

The wind situation in Sao Vicente is also satisfactory during the spring. On average, the wind speeds tend to hover around 25 knots, and the temperature is warm (water and outside).

Conclusion

If you just want a relaxing kitesurfing vacation without all the crowd, then the spring season is the best choice. And if you want to bring some change with the changing seasons, then spring is the season of choice once again! There’s a lot to like about kitesurfing during the spring season – You get the same high-quality wind speed and other conditions but with a lot fewer people.

But less crowd doesn’t mean that you have to make last-second reservations… In fact, it will be better if you can make your arrangements earlier so that when spring finally arrives, you will be actually chilling on a beach rather than finding flights or accommodations.

If you are planning to go kitesurfing with friends and family, then once again spring season brings you the best conditions… The temperature will be warm, which means that your family/friends can get a lot of sunshine. Furthermore, there will be far fewer people, which means a lot of freedom and a lot more chances to have fun!
