Kitesurfing in Diani Beach
In Kenya the wind blows everyday from morning to dusk, 7 months in a total. We have two windy seasons: December - mid March , June - September. The kitespot depends on the tide, is very safe with the side on wind.
Flat water and waves
KiteMotion is located right on the kitespot with perfect flat water in the low tide and if you prefer to kitesurf on waves, you can catch some surf behind the reef. The waves average 1m- 2m and break only 1000m from the shore. Kenya is also perfect for kitefoiling (kitefoil) when the tide is up. (Min 15cm - max 300cm)
Kitesurfing season in Kenya runs from late December to March and June to mid September. We get very constant and stable wind. Wind direction in Diani Beach is side/side-on.
Wind speed in high season ( December - March ) spans between 14 - 25 knts so you'll need medium to big kites.
Wind speed in the low season ( June - mid September ) spans between 14 - 30 knts.
Bikini and boardshorts weather! Kenya and Diani Beach is fairly hot all year round. Water temperature is usually about 28° Celsius but it can drop down to 23° in July and August so bring a shorty just in case.
