There’s some amazing resources online for those wanting to find a Wind and Kitesurfing guide, especially if you desire the best spots and destinations across Europe.
You will mainly have a choice between online tools and articles, or to install apps on your preferred mobile device. One such app is called Kitesurf PRO for iPhone and iPads, which offers forecasts and guides that are dependent on your unique situation. The app can suggest spots for kitesurfing based on the current wind speed, your weight, kite size, profile, and the time you want to kitesurf.
If you prefer to use apps to guide your Kitesurfing experience, then the iKiteGlobal Kitesurfing Travel Guide is another option for iOS. This app will cost you though, so you might want to read about it in full before parting with the over £2 cost.
Windchart – There’s a number of wind charts online to guide you through sizes that are suitable with different wind speeds. Of course, you should only use these as a rough guide and this link takes you to a PDF document detailing information for beginners to professionals.
There’s a number of warnings included within the above PDF, so make sure you read all the information. Another resource can be seen here that guides you through choosing the right kite size based on certain speeds in knots.
