Kitesurfing on Socotra
Socotra was tried only by a few kite surfers, though the place deserves attention.
Cindy Mosey, the World Kitesurfing Champion of 2003, was on Socotra the summer before last. A small video clip will give you an idea of the wind currents of summer monsoons. In summer the northern coast is blown by gusty winds. Cindy was kite surfing in Mahferhin located in the south-eastern part of the island, where winds are not so strong.

We would recommend kite surfers to come to Socotra in autumn and winter seasons, when moderate north-eastern breezes make it favourable to go kite surfing in such beautiful places as Detwah lagoon (calm sea) and Delisha (breaking waves).
