The right time for kitesurfing in Kenya

The kite spot in Diani Beach depends on the tide, is very safe with the side on wind. KiteMotion is located right on the kite spot 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 kite foiling (hydrofoil) 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.
