On the west coast few kilometers north of Kuta there are many nice spot.
Mostly the wind is side to side-off shore, very gusty, fluky and often can be a real pain in the .......
But sometime is worth to check this side of the island as could be the only place with wind!
The wind here has a thermal component so it only start to kick in around 1 pm, before that is totally off shore!
IF THE EASTERLY ARE STRONG THE WIND HERE IS TOO OFF SHORE so definitely go to Sanur or Nusa Dua.
Finally there is are a rescue service by the Kuta Lifeguard, call the 755660 they show up in no time.
You don't really want to drop your kite here due to breaking waves, light off shore wind and strong current....
EXPERT KITERS ONLY...
YOU NEED TO KNOW YOUR STUFF...
MANY BROKEN KITES AND LONG SWIM HERE......
There are few places where to launch: BUT PLEASE DON'T KITE AT PERENAN, the surfer spot or you can get in trouble...
Before Canggu in front of the hotel Bolare. To get there just follow the indication for Canggu and look for the sign of the hotel. The beach is very wide with a river mouth, the wind is a bit side off shore bust almost side shore, is kind of gusty specially near the beach break. There are totally no rocks or coral around so at least for this point is quite safe.
Depending on the swell the waves can be pretty big. Stay on the right of the river mouth.
Directly in Canggu, the spot take the name of the hotel. To get there just follow the indication for Canggu and look for the sign of the hotel. The beach is very narrow with rocks every where. The wind is almost side shore but really gusty specially where the waves break. It does have a nice channel to go out but is probably the most dangerous spot in the area due to strong rip current and the submerged lava rocks.
Another good place is few kilometers further down the coast, called Seseh beach. Just in front of the fishing village there is a channel quite wide (about 100 meters) here you can go out at any tides and there are less rocks then Tugu.
The beach is pretty wide for rigging and launching. The waves are easier then the others spot, and most important the wind is definitely side shore and more constant compare to the others spot. This is a good place less radical then the previous.
