Back in spring 2013 I was thinking about destinations for a kite trip for the summer. I realised there would be places with windy peaks and windy lows during the summer months and needless to say I was looking for a place with strong and consistent wind. To compile a list of possible destinations I had to visit a bunch of spot guide websites assuming I knew what spot I was looking for. Well the problem was, I didn’t know the spot – I knew the months I could travel. Fast forward a couple of months and I can now offer a tool for all kitesurfers knowing when to go, but not where to go.
My name is Martin Sandstrom and I’ve been kitesurfing since 2009. It all started in the cold waters of Sweden but nowadays I reside in London and travel the world for unforgettable kite experiences. I ride Switch Kites to support their cause and for their exceptionally good value. I own a watch brand called Gloriousdays and I’m nuts about pugs which is a pretty poor choice in a dog if you’re a kitesurfer.
I’ve only been to a fraction of the spots mentioned on this website so if you have first hand experience with any of the destinations and you think the guide isn’t accurate I’d love to hear from you. New destinations and other input is of course welcome as well. A disclaimer to all spot pimps however: I collect data from independent sources and I keep it neutral so be honest please.
