The winds blows almost all the year-round. The best period is between october and june (I’ve been there from january till march and I had some wind each day execpt 3 no windy days).
Normally the wind starts in the morning and get stronger in the afternoon.
The wind direction is pretty much the same all the year-round, ENE ESE.
The water temperature is perfect to kite in swimsuite. Only a lycra is adviced due to the sunlight.
The average temperature are between 20° – 30°.
The water temperature is between 26°-29°.
In venezuela the wind blows stronger than in the north part of the Caribbean Sea. If you have to chose I advice you to take smaller kites. A good combination could be a 7m and 9m (for a 70kg person). In some case, like Coche or Los Roques, a bigger kite in the morning could be useful.
The wind blows often over 25-30 knots.
The stronger wind is in Margarita island. In Los Roques the wind is a bit more random and it’s better to check the forecast before to go there.
June – October is the rainy season.
It doesn’t rain a lot in the most common kitesurf spots, but if it does it can be an heavy rain.
During two monthe I had just 1 or 2 rainy days.
