What are the best kitesurfing conditions? What is the best wind to practice kitesurfing?
Of course, this will depends on your level of kitesurfing,the size of your kite, the spot, and what you want to do: Freestyle, big air, wakestyle, waves…so many different riding style.
If you are beginners or intermediate, it is aleways better to ask a kitesurfing instructor what he reckon before to launch your kite.
If it is your first time on a kite spot, it is always clever to ask advice to locals riders, about the wind, hazards, etc…
In Perth, we recommend beginner and intermediate riders to go from 14 to 25knots. Then, the more you improve, you can go up to 35knots. More than 35knots is dangerous, especially if the winfd turn out to be gusty. In Perth, we have perfect wind conditions pretty much every afternoon, with a constant sea breeze starting at 1pm around 15knots, and picking up up to 25knots at 5pm.
If I am 80kg, I will need 2 kites to ride most of the days in Perth. A 12m to ride from 14 to 19knots, and a 9m to ride from 20 to 35knots. Once again, depending on your style, your boards, etc…you can have a different quiver. Give us a call on 0413275058 to discuss about kitesurfing equipment.
