kiting in France


Hello all,

I recently just made a trip to Metz, France, for work. We actually work in Onvile, but stay in Metz. In the country side there were lots of good looking rolling hills and windy days that seemed to be untapped. Anyone know if there is good kiting around there in france or neighboring countries? I would have to travel light, but I would love to get out in the water. I have a feeling more trips are on the horizon.




Kites: 14m Vegas, 15m SD3, 10m rebel, 4m radsail

Boards: GI mtn board, Flyradical 139, plydoor 154

If there's wind + water + beach then there'll be kitesurfers. I don't know what the situation in France is like, but I have friends who live in Barcelona, Spain and have been told the beaches there are closed to kitesurfing during the Summer months because they are just too crowded. In Metz you're a long ways from any beach, which direction are you most likely to go? Looks like the N. coast of Belgium is closest for you, but haven't any idea where to kite there. I know Biarritz, France (due W. of you) is a famous surf spot. The Netherlands is home to Vlieger Ops and is due N of you.

I visited to France last month according to me you should go to courchevel. It is one of Adventure Base's trio of 3 neighbouring courchevel center ski chalets. Whether you're looking for a cheap self catered ski chalet, or a fully catered chalet holiday in the courchevel valley. We can help !!
