Hi. I'm gonna be moving to study in Sweden either to Gotenburg or Stockholm but unsure of which city. Kitesurfing factors highly in my decision, so does anyone know what the wind is like out there? i also head there's some amazing snowkiting spots. any been around there?

Hi!

Old post so I asume you already got an answer, but I answer anyway.
If choosing between Stockholm and Gothenburg, Gothenburg will offer
more and better spots nearby as it's located on the westcoast. Stockholm
has a couple of ok spots, but the're more sketchy and does'nt cover all
wind directions. The westcoast offer big, shallow sandy beaches, wich you
won't fine in Stockholm. Whatever place you choose, you kind of need a car
or a kitefriend with a car to acces spots in different wind directions
as the wind shift directions and strengt.

In summer the wind usually is light and biggest kite possible will give you
most time on water, usually 10-15 knts. Stronger winds in spring and autumn.
Winter is really cold, a little warmer on westcoast. No problem with drysuit or
wintersuit though, problem is the daylight ours is short.. getting dark early.

Update on this thread. Gothenburg and Stockholm are ok for kitesurfing, but if you have the chance you better opt for the southern part of Sweden, in Skåne. You find several excellent spots along the coast from Falsterbo up to Helsingborg. A nice spot guide is found on this page https://www.gusty.se/kitesurfing-i-skane/. It´s in Swedish, but google translate will hopefully translate it into readable english :)
