Hey everyone, I'm coming to Aarhus for 4 months in late August, for university exchange. Just wondering if any of you could give me some advice?

I'm from Sydney, Australia and am really into kiteboarding so I'd like to bring a kite over with me and use it in Aarhus and for a couple trips to Hvide Sande.

First off, is there normally much wind from August to December? What size kite do you normally ride in these months? I'm thinking of buying a cheap 12m or 13m kite to bring over (I'm a bit under 80kg).

Also it looks like the water temperatures are generally very cold, would I need a 4/3 or 5/4 wetsuit? Or would a 3/2mm wetsuit with some booties be fine?

Thanks!

12m will be fine in August and September but in October and November we have pretty many days with more wind, so there it will also be nice with a 9m,- especially on the west coast. However, I think you can find used kites here in Denmark at a cheaper price than in Australia, so maybe you should consider buying used kites here and take them home afterwards. Typically, there will be team riders who put their equipment for sale in August and September, when they get the new 2020 gear. You just say if you need help finding something for August

Tak Surf Pilot and EBBE!

In Australia I can get an old (2008) Cabrinha Switchblade 12m including bar for around AUD$100 which is about 500krr. I was thinking this would be good as I will probably only use it a handful of times before it gets too cold. I may not be able to bring a kiteboard though as I have to bring clothes and etc for 6 months...

What website is good for buying used kites in the Aarhus area? I had a look at Dba and Facebook Marketplace and it doesn't seem like there are many for sale close to Aarhus city.

Cheers

Hi There, welcome to Denmark :)

For more 2nd hand kite equipment check out the facebookgroup "Kitesurf køb/salg".
There's quite a big second hand marked in and around Aarhus. But it's always easier to find the right kit when you're chatting with people on the beach. Bring your kite and bar, and come kiting here :)
See you on the water.
