From October to March winds are stronger and constant. Normally they blow from East/North-East up midday, 15 / 25 knots proximately, some stronger days they they come up to 30 knuts.
The water temperature is very nice, you can ride without wet-suit, but is better to wear short 2mm. When days are cooler (South winds) you have to wear long 3/2 mm , specially when kitesurfing is on the sea.
