"LET'S GO KITESURFING DUDE!" 

"YES DUDE! I'M UP FOR IT! WHEN AND WHERE?"

Every year, this conversation comes up among kite buddies. The case is clear: everyone is motivated and everyone wants to spend time on the water! The period of the next kite adventure is also cleared up quickly. But most of the time it's not clear what the location is. Where shall the trip go to? After all you don't just want to chill out in the beach bar and enjoy the Bahama Mama. There should be a few days on the water at least! The material should also be unpacked again and the tricks practiced. A kite vacation without wind is often more frustrating than staying at home after all!

We analyzed the best wind areas, starting from 4 beaufort, for Europe for each month of the year and give you the best options for each month to spend as much days on the water as possible! The Wind probability shows how many wind days you statistically will have in one month.
