The wind blows side onshore at around 12-25 knots, most days between 15- 18 knots. This stable and constant wind blows for hours, making you feel confident to practice more tricks than you dreamed you could. The most common used kite sizes are 9-14 meter kites, depending on your weight.
The wind varies every week (and every season). Therefore it is hard to predict how the wind is going to be. As a participant you should contact the camp manager ahead of your week and ask about the forecast if you don´t want to bring all your kites. I always recommend people to travel with two kites, to cover all sorts of winds. The wind conditions can vary every day and every week during the season, but Zanzibar is in general known for having light wind and good conditions for big kites. Girls should bring one 9 meter kite and one 11-13 meter kite. Boys should bring one 10 meter kite and one 12-15 meter kite. It is also difficult to read the forecasts, as we have thermal winds at all our destinations. Even though there is no wind on the forecast, there might be super strong wind at our kite spots. We look at the wind directions rather than the wind strength when reading the forecast.
