Zanzibar offers beautiful turquoise waters with temperatures ranging from 25° in winter to 29° in summer. The main Kitesurfing seasons are from mid December to mid March and then again from beginning of June to the end of September with the best and most consistent months for wind being January, February, June, July and August. The wind speeds average 12 - 18 knots with some lighter and some stronger days. Kite sizes used mainly are 9m - 15m. Since the waters have tropical warm temperatures all year around you won't be needing a wetsuit, but make sure to bring good sun protection to maximise your time on the water. The sun is really strong out here as we are only 6° south of the equator. Our Kite Centre is located right in front of the best kite spot on the island. Paje is the hotspot for all level kiters and offers some fun conditions and perfect learning grounds to work on your skills. The spots work best over low and mid tide for learners with little current and flat shallow water. High tide can still be really fun for riding for more intermediate and advanced riders. All in all we will be able to advise you on best times and schedule for your kitesurfing experience with us and will always help to choose the right equipment according to the given conditions during your stay.
