Pirates of the Caribbean: Kitesurfing in always windy Venezuela

A warm “Saludos” from Venezuela! Belonging to the bigger island Isla Margarita, the small sister Isla de Coche is one of the windiest places on our planet. For more than 12 years this place attracts not only professionals but everyone who is looking for perfect kitesurfing conditions. A flat water paradise with the flair of the Caribbean, kitesurf all day long and enjoy your Cuba Libre with the best rum under palm trees and blue sky everyday.

    People & Country

    Being part of South America Continent, Venezuela has this typical tranquil atmosphere everywhere you go. "Manjana" is not a word but a life-style. Chill down and adapt and you will see the benefits of an easy going beach life. Everyone is super friendly but a few words of Spanish cab be very helpful. Even at the airport almost no one speaks English.

    As kitesurfers we are mostly only interested in the beach sides and Island, but there is so much more to discover. From mountains covered with snow, over huge river deltas scenery to the highest water fall in the world - Venezuela has it all. You can do trips starting with small airplanes from Margarita in the Angel falls or the Orinoco Delta.

    CocheKiteSports

    In the Year 2000 Chris "Coche" Valentine was the first one who introduced kitesurfing Venezuela. It was not an accident that he picked this special island to open up his kitesurfing center. With the years it become the most complete school in the country and was hosting several big events, such as world champion ships, kite festivals and other competition.Being a medium size school Chris calls it is Kitehut but it stills provides you everything you need: Storage, Repair, Chillout area, drinks and snacks at the bar as well as private dinners on the beach under the stars - a true kitesurfing paradise.

    Wind & Conditions

    Imagine a spot where you find the same conditions day by day. Here your dream of daily wind and perfect flat water comes true. With half a meter difference between low tide and high tide the water is always dead flat. These are truly talor made conditions for beginners & advanced riders. The wind comes always from the east and north east.

    A typical day on Isla de Coche starts with a gentle wind already from the early morning. From 10 am till 11 am the wind gets stronger and keeps increasing until later afternoon. It drops with the sunset but almost everyday you can still enjoy a stunning sunset session.
