A vote by the Olympic committee back in 2012 resulted in the conclusion that windsurfing as an event would be replaced by kitesurfing in the 2016 Summer Olympiad. For us kitesurfing enthusiasts it was an exciting day, one that was short lived when the controversial decision was reversed leading up to the Rio Games.

In front of him, the wonderful blue ocean surrounds this Caribbean island. He is living his dream in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.

We wanted to learn more wakestyle tricks during February, and preferably in a warm and affordable location. Sri Lanka seemed like a great choice, despite being off season during winter. We still wanted to use mostly 11 m2 and 13 m2 kites, and therefore the off season winds in the lagoons in Sri Lanka suited […]

Hi there, I am heading to FV in July. I am a very expereinced kitesurfer (15 years), and predominatenly like kiting waves. I know summer is not as good for waves as winter, but do you have a recommendation on what the best spots are for potential surf? Thank you so much and great work on the blog. Good winds.

Thanks! Yes it is definitely worth a visit, but I would maybe recommend to visit in the summer / autumn when it is "high season" for the wind, since the wind was quite unstable during february this year. We kited maybe half of the days. In the summer it is supposed to be wind every day. On the other hand, the wind is also more gusty in the summer, and spots more crowdy. It just depends on what you like! :) Good luck travelling! - Comment!

Kitesurfing in Fuerteventura

Jonathan Björkskog 2016.17.2
Hi! For April I think the north coast works well, by living in Corralejo for example. Then you can kite every day at Flag beach, and some days you can head down to Cotillo lagoons. These should be good for beginners. If you want to go to the big kite center in the south, to Sotavento, that works too. There they also have good kiteschools. I hope you enjoy Fuerteventura! :) - Comment!
