Why learn kitesurf in Bahia Salinas?
Bahia Salinas is on the north pacific side of Costa Rica and the conditions to learn kitesurf are just perfect!! Here we are going to enumerate the most important ones:
1.- Windy everyday: From end of October to end of April it is windy every single day! and during the whole day! Making it perfect for practicing kitesurfing.
2.- The wind direction is side-on: which means that the winds blows around 45º angle towards the land. This is the safest and most comfortable wind to learn kitesurf.
3.- Unknown spot: Playa Copal in Bahia Salinas is a spot that not many travellers know about. That means you will not find crowds of people kiting on the ocean at the same time. Normally we have 10-15 kiters. This makes it very safe since the chances of crashing your kite with other people are almost 0.
4.- No waves: Since we are on a small bay there are no waves. Just in february when the wind gets stronger we get about 30 inch waves, which is nothing!! The rest of the season is flat and calm!! This will make your learning process a lot easier and faster.
5.- Warm water: Forget about wetsuits!! The water temperature in Bahia Salinas is so warm that you will not need it at all. It is around 22º-24ºC.
6.- Wild life: It will be hard to find the wild life you find in Costa Rica at any other kite spot: Sea turtles, dolphins, whales, Pelicans, Flamingos…
