TULUM WIND & CONTIDIONS
“The endless playground” is an incredible experience hosting the most versatile conditions for learning, improving, and shredding ... from coral reefs to amazing wildlife with turtles, you name it, a kitesurf dream location!
The kitesurf Tulum season runs from November to May-June with variable winds from North to South.
Kitesurf Tulum hosts some of the best “South East” winds with over 15 knots all season long meaning the peninsula invites Side onshore winds making the waves rise and glide across the Mexican Caribbean coastline.
The average kite size is 12m with a twin-tip or 10m riding a surfboard. This all depends on riding style and ability.
East and South East wind, side-onshore and onshore winds prevail from mid-February to the end of May, increasing the temperature and creating a constant warm breeze from 10-18 knots making kitesurf in Tulum an endless water playground.
This location is perfect for welcoming all abilities. The water conditions are sometimes challenging for beginner kitesurfers since some days we can have a big shore break and lacking proper techniques to overcome it can be frustrating for some. If this is your case a refresher lesson is advised so we can give you all the key pointers to have the most fun out there on the water. These conditions are perfect for our famous down winders, from amazing virgin areas in Sian-kaans biosphere to magical sessions in front of the Mayan ruins.
