Kiteboarding / Kitesurfing in Diani Beach, Kwale, Coast Province Kenya
Diani Beach offers perfect conditions for all levels of kitesurfing. Wind conditions at Diani Beach are ideal with two major wind seasons providing great surf. The Northerly winds commonly known as Kaskazi (December-April) and the Southerly winds known as Kuzi (June to September).
During the northerly winds, days get as hot as 35°C/95°F with wind strengths of 16-22 knots while during the more harsher season of the southerly winds temperatures range between 22-28°C/71.6-82.4°F with wind strength of 20-28 knots. The beach provides a 984 ft/300 m reef from the shoreline and has a lagoon type condition for beginners.
For the more advanced kiters, the reef also provides superb wave riding and jumping ground. Although the weather is much cooler during the Kuzi season, the strong winds make it perfect for kite surfing!!
