Kitesurf Paradise in Indonesia: Jeneponto (Mallasoro village)
“The wind is blowing East / South East. It is side-shore in the morning and turns on-shore in the afternoon. The spot changes configuration depending on the tide with pools that start at high tide”
“At high tide, a huge basin forms just on the left. The body of water is ideal for learning because you have feet everywhere and you are protected from small waves. Depending on the tidal coef the basin is more or less large. In general, lessons are given in this basin at high tide. At low tide the basin empties completely”
“On the right of the spot is the best place for strapless. The best waves are just above the basin of the fishermen. The waves are most of the time too small to surf but you can still have enough to do some rollerblading on very windy days”
“At low tide all the basins are emptied but you still have a huge playground at sea. There are some algae cultures but which are quite easy to avoid”
