Top kitesurf holidays in Indonesia

Jeneponto is the perfect destination for people looking for consistent wind for their kitesurf holidays !

Sulawesi has always been famous in Indonesia for its wind, especially in the southern part, where the 2 first Indonesian wind farms have been inaugurated recently: Sidrap in the mountains and Jeneponto on the sea side.

Jeneponto benefits from mountains compression and tip effect that both speed up the trade winds. This specific area experiences also a very long dry season guaranteeing winds consistency, only disturbed by moon cycles. This strategic location makes of Jeneponto a top windy destination in Indonesia and Asia.

Wind blows side-on from April to October with peak season at 25-35 knots. Usually the wind starts in the morning till dusk, making the nights with comfortable temperatures.

The kite size most used is 8m for riders 80-85kg, with 11m in back-up

Due to these tremendous wind statistics, 42 wind turbines have been set up to become the biggest Asia-Pacific independent wind farms, and helping to boost green energy for the country.

Its wind statistics make Jeneponto kite school so special !
