September European holiday?

Shoot the breeze and stay in the loop with the unhinged and unhooked word on the street.

Where is a good place to go? Travelling with the missus and a 3 year old & 7 month old so close by and easy, happy to have a couple of hours of kitesurfing a day but don't need more. Not fussed about water conditions.

Any recommendations?

Gokova normally works early Sept. Wind comes from lunchtime. Get a couple of hours most days. It's not as reliable as earlier months, but all the crowds have gone and it's not as hot.

Tenerife, El Medano?
Fuert?

Have a look at Lefkada in Greece. More to do with the family than Gokova. Not sure if the wind is as reliable as Gokova (went late October a couple of years ago and it was pretty consistent). I'd rather take the family to Greece than Turkey at the moment personally.

Does Tarifa work well in September? :-)

YMMV

Greece sounds potential. Not that keen on Turkey or the Canaries though.

Anywhere else that might be worth considering? Any particular spots in Portugal or Spain?

Porto Pollo is a really windy place but the South off Sardinia is usually much better for kitesurfing: steady wind (in Porto Pollo is really gusty) and warmer temperatures than Porto Pollo.
For people that like to kitesurf in Sardinia, you can find information on the kite spots, weather conditions, wind, statistics, etc, in the following websites:

https://www.kitegeneration.com/where-to ... -sardinia/
https://kiteboardingsardinia.com/

My main suggestion for people that would like kiesurfing sardinia is to rent a car in order to easily move to different kite spots when the wind change direction (in Sardinia could change really often) and to "join" to a kite school.
Happy new year and see you soon in Sardinia :)
