Kitesurfing is possible all year round - but conditions at the various spots around the world can vary widely depending on the time of year you go there. Here are some tips that will take you to the best spots in all seasons. Some spots have more wind, others are better for waves or are suitable for learning to kite. If you do not want to quit kitesurfing during the cold winter months in Europe, the question is which spot to choose for what time of year. We have put together some tips that will take you through your kitesurfing year.
Coche (Venezuela): A great spot for beginners and intermediates. The large flat-water course and stable wind conditions are ideal for both newcomers and advanced kiters. The wind is reliable and in addition, the gorgeous scenery really make Coche a top spot - even for families.

Djerba (Tunesia): Unbeatable in terms of price and secure wind conditions. Djerba is the spot for beginners and intermediates. The Kitemagazine once described it as one of the world's best learning spots. Yet the combination of shallow water and the constant strong wind offers possibilities to more experienced riders as well.

El Médano (Teneriffa): Just simply a superb wave spot for advanced kiters and cracks. Probably a bit to tricky yet for beginners due to the waves, but for experienced kiters they promise sheer fun and action! El Medano has over 300 days of wind per year, the same is true for the sunny days. So, let's go!

El Yaque (Isla Margerita/Venezuela) is considered the spot with the most reliable wind situation. Arguably the greatest number of windy days worldwide are recorded in El Yaque. For beginners, there is a separate shallow area. Advanced kiters and freestylers will find everythging they want for. The constantly blowing strong winds in combination with quite a choppy wave guarantee loads of action and fun on all levels.

Cabarete (Dominican Republic): For years, Cabarete has been one of the most popular kitesurfing spots. Flat water and waves offer optimum conditions for kiters of all sorts and skills.

Soma Bay is perfect for beginners as there is a huge shallow area. Next there is a stretch for speed kiting. And finally an area with choppy water for wave kiters.

Magawish / Hurghada (Egypt):
The Spots around Hurghada are primarily distinguished by their stable wind conditions between 4-6 Bft. Beginners will enjoy the large shallow area with great conditions for learning.

Safaga (Egypt) is probaly the spot with the most reliable wind conditions in Egypt. The extended stretch of shallow water makes it a good beginners destination. Further out, the waves offer something for all skill levels.

Le Morne (Mauritius): A very safe location for wind. In strong winds even breaking waves may build up. Therefore the spot holds only limited space for beginners in the first 200 m off the beach.

Corralejo (Fuerteventura Nord): The wave spot of the island is located at the widest beach on Fuerteventura. For beginners, the first 200m of the spot are suitable.
