Welcome back to the Maldives Insider. Truth is January is a great time to take time off and enjoy freetime. I’ve been out there making memories and don’t worry, I will share the new stories with you. Anyways it’s nice to be back:)
There is something I was thinking about sharing with you as insider information about my country. My home, The Maldives is famous of luxury island resorts, snorkeling and diving, but it’s unknown to many that we also have amazing kitesurfing conditions during certain parts of the year.
If you are a beginner, or you are looking to improve your kitesurfing skills then you will really enjoy perfect kite conditions here. You will love sailing across the calm, flat & warm waters that are perfectly protected by the surrounding reef systems.
The best time for a kitesurf holiday at the Maldives is between late February and the middle of November so the season for kitesurfing is right around the corner here in the Maldives! when the south-westerly side winds arrive to the region. These winds average between 15 and 22 knots.
If you are an advanced kitesurfer, then you need to look for the locations where the waves can even rise up to a height of 8 to 10 feet.
As always the local kitesurfing hotspots change depending on the wind conditions, so if you are around to do some kiting then drop me a line or comment bellow and I’ll update you about the latest wind news.
Stay tuned in, because soon I will be back with some more insider tips about my beautiful country <3
