THE SPOT

Exciting playground

You will enjoy this newly charted spot still preserved from the crowd.

The sandy lagoon is stretching over 2km with shallow and flat waters.

Beach is large offering a lot of space to safely take-off and land.

It works both high and low tides with the lagoon moving, but the fun remains the same. Small kickers at high tide and glassy water at low tide, you will never get bored by the sessions.

Ideal spot whatever your level from beginners to experienced riders who wants to push their limits with big air jumps and unhooked tricks.

At low tide the beach widen till 300m to practice buggy kite.

THE WIND

From April to October

Jeneponto benefits from its strategic location with 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 changes.

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

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.
