VENUE


All events will take place on Tabuhan Island, a small uninhabited atoll enshrined with white sandy beaches and turquoise waters positioned right in the middle of the strait separating Bali from Java. Tabuhan Island is part of the Banyuwangi regency of East Java - Indonesia.


CONDITIONS


1. Each year around May, the South Easterly trade winds reach Indonesia. This marks the end of the raining season and the start of the dry season, or as we like to name it, the Windy Season. Where in Bali we have come to accept these trade winds will hardly ever blow over 15 knots, in East Java and in particular at Tabuhan Island, it’s a whole different story. These same South Easterly trade winds get funnelled through the narrow strait between the islands of Bali and Java. Add the mountainous terrain on both sides of this strait and the temperature differences between the land and ocean surface temperatures and you will have the perfect recipes for strong, constant wind. Right there where the trade winds are the strongest and most constant, lays Tabuhan Island. You will ride in a combination of choppy water to picture perfect flat water for those who love free riding and throwing their latest tricks in super smooth water. Beautiful untouched scenery, combined with steady trade winds of up to 25 knots between May and November, will make this the newest kite -and windsurf destination in Southeast Asia.

2. Conditions to be expected: dominant SE - SEE trade winds of up to 25 knots; water temperature 25 - 27 ºC; air temperature 30 - 32 ºC.


TRAVEL INFORMATION


From Denpasar airport in Bali or Surabaya airport in East Java, daily flights depart for Blimbingsari airport in Banyuwangi. Both Garuda, Indonesia's premier airline company and Wings Air fly from these locations to Banyuwangi. The flight from Bali takes about 25 minutes while the flight from Surabaya takes about half an hour.

Both airline companies allow for free carriage of up to 25 kg of kiteboarding gear next to your normal luggage. Alternatively, you can drive your car from Bali to Ketapang (harbour town north of Banyuwangi where you will arrive on the car ferry departing from Gilimanuk - Bali). The drive takes about 3-4 hour including the ferry between Gilimanuk - Bali and Ketapang - East Java. The organisers of the event will arrange for your airport / ferry terminal pick-up and consequent transport to the event location. Please contact info@tabuhanislandpro.com for further details.
