mid-May got lucky in Bali (which I understand is not entirely typical of Indonesia).

that said, 12m was there smallest kite there...

i have a mystic one but it kinda on the big side..might be in the market for a smaller one like the crazy fly travel compression golf bag with no wheels..pm me with what you got..could also swap if someone is looking for a bigger one ..

i might even see if i can rent out there .something im not keen on or have ever done before....wind just doesnt seem to be consistent out there when im going and if i get skunked i really dont want to have to lug gear around..its a catch 22..

Crazy fly bag :

In general, southeast asia has 2 windy seasons. Northeast monsoon (november-february) and southwest monsoon june-august) and in good years add a month to either side of those periods. So May is inter-monsoon period, I wouldn't expect too much. I was at Trikora Beach on Bintan island near Singapore in mid-March and caught some good days, but the locals were saying it was probably the end of the season. I was in Hua Hin Thailand at end of March, light wind, and I'm in Boracay. Philippines now (early May, no wind).
