I am heading to Lake Arenal Costa Rica for Jan & Feb. Does any one have any experience kiting there? Will I require a smaller kite than my 8mt Rise? I am 170 lb ridng a Zen 135 x 43.

Was there windsurfing in the early 90’s.  Very beautiful, pretty windy, can be gusty. 

Would think you will be fine with your 8, I don’t recall it blowing over 30 knots when I was there - but then again that was 15 yrs ago.  If you are going for 2 mos you might want something smaller though.

Enjoy your trip.

Bring something smaller for sure. i was there about 8 years ago and I had wind 30 to 60 knots 15 days in a row. Beautifull spot.

Kiting is great can’t wait to retire so I can do it full time.  Bring on the wind.

Hey Jason, it’s the same guy. Back home in Kelowna now trying to get into christmas and getting ready to take off again Jan 4th for Costa Rica. You guys hit it just right in Cozumel. There was a lull for about a week after you left and then another Norte blew in for the last part of my trip. Great to kite with you guys, I learned a lot on that trip.
