Kite Provo - Turks & Caicos Islands

Postby KiteFLix » Wed Jul 12, 2006 8:18 am

Hello,
I recently had the chance to visit the island of Providenciales (Provo) in Turks & Caicos. I thought is was an excellent kiting destination. I made a video of the beaches, local kiters and local scenery and it may be viewed here...

How is the wind there? What part of the year is the normal season? Is it thermal or trade winds or weather systems?
