Wind forecasts for kitesurfing

WIND FORECAST

Reading wind forecasts is the most important thing you need to do in order to continue kitesurfing effectively after the kite course. You need to learn clear wind direction, strength and quality to determine the safest beach. It is not difficult, but requires some training. Follow this guide and save the links to the best wind forecasting apps.

THE DIRECTION OF THE WIND

The direction of the wind determines which beach to go to. The safest wind direction is when it blows the side-shore. But all directions cross-onshore and onshore works.

THE STRENGTH OF THE WIND

The strength of the wind determines the size of the kite to use. If it blows poorly, use a larger kite (13 - 17 m2) and if it blows stronger you go down to kite size.

THE QUALITY OF THE WIND

By quality we mean how turbulent or temperate the wind is. Turbulence and turmoil are created by weather fronts, rain or how the land mass looks from where the wind comes from.

KITESURFING BLEKINGE

The special thing about Blekinge is that there are lots of islands offering kite surfing with an incredible natural experience. The archipelago is very wide but does not extend far out, which means that you quickly reach islands with a good stable wind.

In the eastern archipelago there are many low islands where the wind blows over the islands without creating turbulence in the wind.
