Why the Kitesurf’s spot of Jeneponto is the perfect spot for beginners and advanced Kitesurfers?
Indeed, how many times have you had a Kitesurf trip far away from home , ( most of the time with financial or time spending sacrifices) and, at the end, you only have one windy day during your 7 or 10 days stay . Of course, kitesurfing is a great opportunity to discover different landscapes, countries and especially meeting new people to share experiences or just a drink ….. but I do admit that it’s really more fun to share a drink or an evening with other kiters after a good Kitesurfing session.
In Jeneponto the wind is daily present from May to October, windiest kite spot in Indonesia, Jeneponto benefits from a strategic location, compression with mountains in the back + corner tips of South Sulawesi. Due to it’s tremendous wind statistic, Indonesian gouvernment decided to settle the biggest Wind Farm in South East Asia.
