Where to go Kitesurfing in October?

As the Northern Hemisphere loses its heat, the wind starts to blow; meanwhile, the Southern Hemisphere is starting to get into the swing of things. Shake off those cold water blues with a trip overseas, or embrace the cold and grab a wetsuit and score some epic conditions closer to home.

If you want near guaranteed wind at this time of year, Northern Brazil is hard to beat, with most spots offering over 90% chance of wind! However the more adventurous amongst you might want to avoid the crowds and head to Northern Madagascar, Peru or the Cocos Islands. Don’t rule out a staycation either, Europe is alive with wind at this time of year, and waves, try Cornwall in the UK or head to Ireland, Germany or Holland for some colder sessions!

Don’t leave your decision to chance, make the most of our extensive travel guides to get the most out of your trip. Choose your next destination armed with as much information about the conditions and the spots as the locals, after all, every guide was written by a local rider! Narrow down the options by using the wind, waves, flat water, water temperature, nightlife and even the standard of the Internet filters!
