WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN KITESURFING IN CABARETE AND LAS TERRENAS ?
WHEN I LOOK AT WINDGURU WIND STATISTICS, I DON’T SEE GOOD WIND. WHY?
No worries the wind speed is always between 15 & 20 knots and super steady like a fan! Unfortunately, Windguru doesn’t take into account the local thermal wind which reinforces the steady trade winds «Alizes». It is best to add 5 knots to the forecast.
IF I STAY FOR ONE WEEK, WHAT IS NEXT AFTER THE 3 DAYS LESSONS PACKAGE ?
Based on your level, we will adapt the training program with either more hours of lessons or rental under supervision. We will ensure that you maximize your time on the water having fun!
