"The Kite and Windsurfing Guide Europe" has been revamped with a 2,500 spots for wind addicts.
It's definitely the ultimate book for all windsurfers and kiteboarders. With 464 pages of information, "The Kite and Windsurfing Guide Europe" has been revised and improved to accommodate over 40,000 kilometers of coastline from 17 European countries.
"The rapid development of our sports over the past decade has had a dramatic impact on so many beaches, and as we revisited those we already knew, more and more new spots emerged too", explains Udo Hölker, the editor of this grand project.
"Nearly three years later, the number of spots had grown by almost 50% to 2,500, all with up-to-date information and completely new spot maps. Plus, we raided the archives of the best surf photographers on the continent again. From an incredible 38,000 photos, we selected the best 1,200, taking the picture quality to a whole new level".
The result is probably the best wind spot guide for windsurfers and kiteboarders. It's all in there. Accurate local knowledge of wind and waves, plus conditions on the water and ashore, insights into each region's kite and windsurf scene.
Featuring a comprehensive overview of the continent's meteorology and oceanography, the book describes all the key weather patterns and wind systems complete with local effects, stats, temperatures and swell charts, too.
