Travelfinder – When do you want to go?


In winter we travel to distant destinations. Whether kitesurfing with a view of the Table Mountain, sipping coconut water in Kalpitiya or cruising on the lagoon of Tatajuba. We have the right destination for all levels. If you would rather spend Christmas or New Year’s this year under the kite than at the table with Christmas roast, you can check out our winter destinations.

A tour where you can learn more about the different spices on Zanzibar is a great addition to kitesurfing. Our Red Monkey Lodge in Jambiani is the only lodge on the island to have been awarded a sustainability certificate. This means that they focus on environmental protection and fair payment of the locals. You won’t find a single plastic bottle anywhere. There is also a restaurant in the lodge where you can try different dishes prepared with local ingredients.

Sal on Cape Verde is the winter spot with side-onshore wind and small waves for intermediate and advanced surfers. For wave riders, there are world-class conditions, while the spot is not completely optimal for beginners. This is because the water quickly becomes deep. But it’s not without reason that the kite school of wave-pro Mitu Monteiro and Djo is located on Sal beach. If you learn to kitesurf under these conditions, you can do it anywhere! Before you jump on the board, there will be a balanced kiter breakfast in the morning for refreshment.

Relax under a roof of palm leaves, watch iguanas and geckos and let the strong wind blow around your nose. You can do all this at the mouth of the Tatajuba river. The mirror-smooth shallow water of the lagoon is perfect for beginners, intermediates, and freestylers, but there is also a wave spot for wave beginners. On top of that, the wind blows strong and reliable. We grill at least once a week so that you can sit together comfortably after the sessions. Or there are excursions, for example to our favorite beach restaurant in the surfer village Jericoacoara.

Brazil: Préa– Kitesurfing in Winter

+ Breathtaking pousada
+ 15 km long sandy beach – Lots of space on the water
+ Largest Cabrinha kite school in North and South America
+ Most secure wind in all of Brazil
+ Only 15 min. from Jericoacoara

The original fishing village Préa is considered to be one of the windiest places to kite and therefore one of the best. The wind blows constantly side-onshore, as well as in Tatajuba and Jericoacoara. In addition, the water is so warm with about 28 degrees that you can kite without Neo. Here in Préa, you will find relaxation at the large pool, the chill-out area or by visiting the organic vegetable garden. This will of course also ensure your physical well-being, as the hotel not only has its own restaurant, but also a snack bar on the beach. If you feel like it’s time for a little adventure, we recommend Jeri’s nightlife.

Brazil: Jericoacoara – Kitesurfing in Winter

+ Relaxed atmosphere, far away from mass tourism
+ Legendary downwinder, from Préa to Jeri                          
+ Very reliable wind conditions
+ Préa is only 15 minutes away

Jericoacoara, sometimes also called Jeri, is the surfer village on the Brazilian coast. If you are looking for a variety of activities and a lot of kite possibilities, you will find what you are looking for here. The place consists almost only of sand and is relatively manageable, but that’s what makes it so charming. Kilometers of sandy beaches with constant side-onshore wind await you. For even more fun you’ll find about five kilometers of downwind finest shallow water in a river mouth. Also, a tour to the nearby towns Tatajuba or Préa is worthwhile in any case.

Egypt: Seahorse Bay – Kitesurfing in Winter

+ Family like atmosphere at Ibi & Friends Kiteclub Seahorse Bay
+ Living right at the spot, without TukTuk rides
+ Complete packages for beginner, intermediate and advanced
+ Limited availability for more space on the water
+ From bed to board: 20 meters from your room to the spot
+ Holiday destination for single travelers, families, and couples

The Seahorse Bay is the perfect spot for beginners, everyone here has the opportunity to achieve success quickly. This is mainly due to the fact that the shallow water area is very large and the wind is very stable. In addition, there are two entry possibilities so that the kitesurfers don’t get in each other’s way. In addition, the number of students is limited so that everyone gets optimal training and there’s always space on the water. The Red Sea is also known for its fascinating diving areas. But if you’d rather take it easy after kitesurfing, the cozy garden has plenty of room for a campfire or BBQ.

In Kalpitiya you can expect wind at any time. You will live in a pretty lodge that was built by a German builder and mixes German engineering with local architecture.

Kalpitiya also has a lot of different activities to offer. For example, it is worth taking a trip to the royal site of Anuradhapura. It is also the oldest royal site in Sri Lanka and lies in the middle of the jungle, surrounded by monasteries and lakes.
