Prevailing winds
Prevailing cross-shore wind from the right. Thermal winds are increased when the wind is from the north and the temperature's right in the summer.
Water conditions
Clean flat water in the shelter of the port, with good wave and surf conditions when there's swell. In the summer expect a fun sized swell rather than more serious winter conditions. The natural horseshoe shape of the bay also means that the wind conditions are safe for all levels of rider.
Competition history
This is the debut competition for the GKA Kiteboarding World Tour
Previous winners

2019 will produce the first winners for this event.
