* A lot like the DR, wind wise - i.e. on and off again. Any fronts or storms upset the easterly trades, so no weather means good wind.

* Ocean Park, a great beach minutes from the San Juan airport is nice, wide and expansive. Velauno ( gives lessons there, but Real Kiteboarding (http://www.realkiteboarding) is right on the beach. Pedro is the owner and they give lessons and sell gear. They have a chase boat to help on the down winders. Very laid back.

* They say that the southern coast has much better and more consistent wind. Haven't tried it.

* The northwest corner has a couple beaches (one is called 'Shacks') which are supposed to have some pretty radical breaks (complete with sharp coral) for you superstars!

feel free to email me if you want more info.

Went to San Juan a couple of weeks ago, stayed for a week. Good conditions for windsurfing the first three full days I was there. Stayed at the Tres Palmas, right across the street from the beach in Ocean Park. Rented from Velauno ( The folks at Velauno treated me right.

I can attest to Shacks! Out near Aquadilla on the North West Corner. Good side shore winds, I saw kiters out there everyday.
