Looking for kitesurfing holidays can be quite overwhelming because there are so many different places to go, each claiming they are the best! There are different things to consider when choosing where to take your kitesurfing holidays, here I will help you figure out what is the best choice for you!
WHO ARE YOU GOING WITH
First you need to decide who you are going on kitesurfing holidays with. Are you going alone? With some friends? With your partner? Or even with your family? Who you are going with is going to play a big part in where you choose to go. If you are going alone you may want to choose a more social destination where there are lots of other people travelling alone and where there is nightlife and places to hangout at night such as Tarifa or Cabarete. If you are travelling with family maybe you are looking for a more relaxed atmosphere with other activities to enjoy such as Squamish or the east coast of Australia and if you are travelling with friends maybe you want a trip where you can travel and go camping like the west coast of Australia or Cape Town.
WHAT TYPE OF RIDING DO YOU LIKE
When deciding where to take your kitesurfing holidays it’s also very important to consider what type of riding you prefer to do! For example, if you only like to ride waves than Squamish is not your place! Some places are amazing for flat water and others are great for waves, some even offer both! Make sure you do your research to make sure you end up in a suitable destination,
WHAT TIME OF YEAR DO YOU WANT TO TRAVEL
Different parts of the world have different windy seasons and it would suck to go somewhere with no wind! Be sure to find out what time of the year it’s windy in your preferred destination as well as what size kites you need as well as if you need a wetsuit.
PLANNING KITESURFING HOLIDAYS IN SQUAMISH
The windy season in Squamish begins in April and can last as long as October. The midsummer from mid June to the beginning of September will bring the most consistent wind and nicest weather conditions. 5/4mm wetsuits are needed the whole year and ktie sizes range for 7-12m. Squamish is suitable for a family holiday as well a group travel, for couples as well as single travellers. The kite spot itself doesn’t offer any amenities such as bars or restaurants so it is not as social for single people like it is in the Caribbean, but you will definitely meet people on the Spit.
