rip off beach... - sotavento is straight offshore and definitely not ideal for beginners. winds are super strong especially during summer season. be prepared to get sandblown!

desperate kiters only - The wind in sotavento is completly offshore, but very gusty. Center is catastrophy, unfriendly, arrogant. Only kite here once to see it's really shit. Beach is beautyful
