Want to plan a kiting trip? Just got back from one? Post you experiences, questions and information here.
I'm going to Kauai in July and having a very hard time finding where the best wave sailing is (if at all) Yikes!!! I hope there are some waves, and what kite size's are needed. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Haven't been there in September, sorry. Last year I was on my 12 most of the time. There's an amazing beach called "mahalepu" in Poipu. You go past the Grand Hyatt, and continue on the dirt road for a few miles. It's beautiful! I also kited near Tunnels and Anini. Saw some huge (I mean HUGE) sea turtles that scared the crap out of me. Not too many kiters in Kauai and definitely no shops. Make sure you bring all your gear and I'd recommend bringing some stuff for repairs (bladders tape, rip stop tape, etc.).
If it's not windy, there's tons to do there.

You say Kailua, HI, are you talking Kailua-Kona, HI, or Kailua, Oahu? I'll assume the latter, cause there's no kiting at the former. Solid Trades this time of year, should be good. Easy launch site at Kailua Beach park - but once out, head down wind to Castles (due West) where there is some decent wave riding, or straight outside at JumpCity; big rollers, not much shape but fun nonetheless. Or, you if there is good enough windswell, there can be waves off Flat Island which is upwind from Kailua Beachpark.
