I am interested too. So, please, Let me know if someone can help on this. Is it possible close to managua?
I'm going there the 5th of april, so I need to figure out if I can bring my gear.
I, too, would like to know!
where's all the Tripadvisor Kiteboarders?
so too much wind?.. or too unpredictable?
I'm not sure I understand what you meant
The wind in the lake is pretty onshore but it is easy enough to get out and the launch/ land area is ideal. Along the west shore of the lake there are loads of good spots which so far as i know have never seen a kiter. I weigh 95kgs and normally use a 9m. I have a 7m on order though as last season i missed a lot sessions as it was just too windy.
I went to Bahia Salinas on the Nicaragua/Costa Rica border March 07. Nice conditions. The shape of the bay keeps the wind from Lake Nicaragua at a nice angle on Playas Copal and Papaturro. Most people are on Playa Copal. There are two hotels run primarily for kitesurfers and windsurfers on the bay. Nicola is the very nice Italian guy who's been there a while and runs one; the other is right on the beach, but I don't know who runs it. Each has a bar/restuarant and offers lessons and equipment. Small kitesurfing community, very little other tourism, although there are a couple small resorts a few miles away. Beach is a little rocky but OK. Very high winds, so need a small kite. Prolonged gusts. Papaturro would be nice if one wanted to get away. It tends to be more sideshore than side-onshore, and so the lessons and beginners are all at Copal, and everybody else seems to follow.
Hi there, I am travelling the world kiting and writing a book on it at the moment. I have been in Mexico and am on Atitlan in Guatemala at the moment and will be in lake Nicaragua in one week. If anyone is keen to hook up please feel free. My email is email@example.com. After lake nicaragua I am heading to Sanjuan del sur to see what I can see.
