How bad is the wind there during summer ,Can I get at least 10 Knts everyday?
Checking windguru and windfinder, wind stays in the 15 knots range direction e/se, what's verry good.
Is it right?? or I shoud forget these places since season is over.
I suggested getting in touch with
but apparently they are out of there at that time of year.

Looking at the consistent easterly direction, it looks like they do, weaker ones anyway. The graphs are in mph not knots. It isn't as bad as I thought it would be, looks rideable rigged for light conditions (big board, good sized kite). Each year varies in these strange weather times were in however. A tropical system could increase or completely mess up the winds you see below. You're in prime time for tropical activity in late July and August. Contrary to common belief hurricanes and tropical storms can really mess up kiting (kiters too) at times.
