During the best part of the year regarding wind conditions, 95 per cent of days we will have enough wind to have our kite lessons. And … it there’s no wind in Mallorca?
Thanks to our foil type kites – FLYSURFER– it is very difficult not to have enough wind for our kite lessons. The special type of kites we are using are able to fly in as little as 3 knots of wind.
We should notice that the relation size/weight or our kite is of capital importance to make it able to fly. Or, in other words, a heavy big tube kite will not fly in light wind. It doesn’t matter how big it is. The bigger the kite, the heavier, evidently.
This may sound so far as unimportant. No wind = no lessons. But not necessarily it is needed too much wind to have this lessons.
In fact, it is definitely better to have your kite lessons in real light wind as your control of the kite and the reaction of the kite to your commands will be more prone to forgiveness that in a “not so light breeze”.
However, very seldom but possible, some days it will be just no wind. Let’s say this could happen one or two days per month.
In case the weather forecast, indicate us the wind direction, is not adequate – offshore direction – and you prefer to take a day off. You can dedicating your time to do something else.
There is the possibility to rent a bike or a car and take one of the three different recommended routes of tourist interest that proposes the company Sixt Rent-a-car.
