Kuredu kite spot in

Asia kitesurf spot in Maldives

Kuredu is a stunning island in the Maldives, offering a luxury kitesurfing getaway that’s tough to match for the scenery alone. The Maldives isn’t known for its pumping wind but Kuredu has a few windy months for kitesurfing each year and you can get lucky and have wind at any time of year. Kuredu offers a large area of flat shallow water inside the reef which is perfect for practicing your tricks or learning to kitesurf. The lagoon is protected by a 300m long jetty which means the water stays nice and flat for kiting even when the wind picks up. 

It’s an idyllic location but that luxury comes at a cost, and it’s not a cheap place to visit. There’s only one resort on the island and it is beautiful, so if you are planning a trip to the Maldives anyway this could be a great option to combine a romantic luxury getaway with an epic kite trip! The resort offers all you could ever want and more, including a 6 hole golf course and driving range for guests, so there’s no shortage of things to do even if the wind isn’t good enough for kiteboarding.

Kitesurfing wind conditions in Kuredu 

The kiteboarding season starts in December and lasts till the end of February. During these months, the wind stays pretty stable and comes from the East, meaning the reef is well protected and flat, perfect for kitesurfing. The wind speed is generally somewhere between 15 and 35 knots, and blows all day long, with January being the windiest and most consistent month. The rest of the year offers wind speed ranging from 5 to 25 knots and can be hit or miss. As the wind in Kuredu is thermal, you cannot completely rely on the wind forecast so the trick here is to contact the local kite school and ask if the conditions are good. The Maldives are one of those locations where you’re not always going to score the wind, but take your gear and see.
