The Kitepower area is characterised by a large standing area that extends more than 500 metres into the sea and covers a total area of approx. 5 km². The lagoon offers optimal conditions for beginners as well as for advanced riders. The teaching area and the freeride area are separated by buoys.
At high tide the water is slightly choppy, at low tide almost mirror-smooth.
Because the spot is located in a trade wind zone and the Venturi effect and the Seebreeze effect also support the prevailing winds, we at Kitepower have an average wind yield of approx. 70% throughout the year. The regular wind direction is north-west, north-north-west, providing perfect side shore/side onshore conditions.
The average wind speed is between 14 and 20 knots.
Water temperatures are up to 28 degrees Celsius in summer and 18 degrees Celsius in winter. You only need a wetsuit in the winter months. We recommend it from mid/late October to mid May.
