Kitespot Description

Wind Direction:SE, S, SW

Best Months:
All year round

Conditions
The prevailing winds are ENE and SW. Both these winds are cross shore. If there is too much west in the SW, it becomes slightly off shore. The spot is good with both directions. With the E winds, the water is dirtier, colder and choppier. With the west it's warmer, cleaner and smoother.
Reef 300 m out where the large swell would break and slow down. The waves then gently roll in like little kickers. Water conditions change with tide. On spring low can get dangerous as the bottom rocks start peeking out. Best is mid tide as the water depth gives a nice flat inside section. Kiting is good all year round particularly from August to December. Summer: Short wetsuit is sufficient. Winter long suit.

Rigging Area
On the beach below the parking lot
