What's good nomad spots for kitesurfing?


by @yangwao | 5yr  | 8 comments

Lately Iโ€™ve learned little kitesurfing and Iโ€™m new in digital nomadism.
Iโ€™d like join these exciting things into something. Got idea if there are some digital nomads who like kitesurfing and planned go to somewhere.

I have some locations, where some digital nomads would go:

  • Tarifa, Spain
  • Montenegroโ€™s Hidden Coastline (Croatiaโ€™s Dalmatian coast and Albania)
  • Sicilia, Italy
  • Lefkada, Greece
  • Bay of Roses / Sant Pere Pescador area 1,5 hr away from Barcelona and Castelldefels which is a beachtown-suburb of Barcelona have the best kitesurf conditions + infrastructure after Tarifa in mainland Spain
  • Bali, Indonesia (cowork there! http://www.dojobali.org)
  • Tenerife, Canary Islands (there was some organized trip lately, http://www.meetup.com/workoff/events/227343513/ for 80โ‚ฌ with flights, coworking-space + activities )

Who is interested to do some kind of calendar or plan something, or is there already some kind of this calendar?

disclaimer, surfers != kitesurfers :sweat_smile:

Iโ€™m planning a trip to Hawaii in Oct to kite and work. I hear incredible things, and you know youโ€™ll have reliable internet! Other than that am super down for a group trip to Canaries / Greece! If anyoneโ€™s organising, loop me in :slight_smile:

+1 for Tarifa. You can find great kiting all year round, and itโ€™s a great place to live (cheap, unspoiled by mass tourism, great internet, friendly small town with history, high quality food, and parties if youโ€™re interested). Downside is that the popular beaches get crowded in the summer, but there are literally miles of kitable beach, so you might just have to walk a bit more. Lived there for a year, and really canโ€™t find many bad things to say about it. Visa is the major problem for non-Europeans.

Count me in if you ever want to make a kiting focused nomad trip.

I second Brazil being an ideal spot for kitesurfing, but indeed, a strong Internet connection is a must for us! Perth in Australia is also quite popular. In Asia, Hua Hin in Thailand or Boracay in the Philippines are good. Yet again, the winds arenโ€™t the same all year-round in Asia, so it depends on the season really.

Hi Yangwoa,

Bali does have some kitesurfing and is great for digital nomads. I was there the whole of October and did a couple of sessions at Sanur on the East coast where there is a kite school and cheap rentals. I stayed on the west coast and saw a couple of people out on a few days. The wind in Oct was not strong and 12-15m kites were the norm. June-Aug is meant to have more wind. Lots of Wifi (although not that fast) 3G coverage is good.
Wakepark is great, but unlike most things in Bali which are really cheap, they do charge western rates for using the cable :frowning:

I am currently in Mui Ne Vietnam where the wind is great. Water a bit choppy. I counted about 200 kitesurfers out the other day which means that is is a bit busy, but the level of riding is amazing. The internet apart from the last day or two has been amazing 10Mbps up and down is normal, had 40Mbps up and down at one hotel! 3G also very good and my $10 15 day unlimited internet sim is still going strong after a month! Not met many digital nomads here, but sure they must be somewhere!

Tarifa - Great
Fuerteventura - Great (Not met many nomads yet, but thin kthis is picking up and someone has started a coworking space there).

Cape Verde - Internet was a bit slow a few years ago, but did have free wifi on miles of beach which was nice!

Also kited in Mauritius and Turks & Caicos, but not really much of a nomad scene there that I am aware of.

Maybe Cape Verde too?

It has amazing spots in Sal island. World famous kite surfers are from there.

Hi yangwao,

Bali doesnโ€™t have kitesurfing. There isnโ€™t enough wind for it to be worth even trying. Surfing there is great though.

Mui Ne in Vietnam is a good kitesurfing + nomad spot. its a few hours drive from Saigon and has thermal wind conditions, great internet and low living costs. The upside is the thermals give very predictable conditions. The downside is that the beach drops off deep very quickly so the conditions are very choppy (like a washing machine) when the wind picks up. To the north there is a pretty good wave spot where you can ride monster waves that are perfect for kiting. You also need to be wary of many riders that donโ€™t know basic international rules like right of way, especially when wave riding.

Hua Hin is another one, however I found the wind to be a bit light for my liking. Conditions are great if youโ€™re a beginner/intermediate kiter.

Fuerteventura is another good island in the Canaries, have to drive to the spots though.

Cabarete, Dominican Republic is a good combo of decent internet and great kiting conditions. Thermal conditions due to the mountains, however aim to get 2 weeks of decent wind for every 3. Lots of other things to do (great place for beginner surfing) when there is no wind.

NE coast of Brasil (north of Fortaleza) is the prime spot for kiting, however the internet is shotty and unreliable. Best conditions Iโ€™ve ever found.

For other spot guides:
http://www.kitesurfatlas.com/
http://www.wannakitesurf.com/

Trick is finding decent internet + amenities alongside decent kiting.

What's the best thing to do with your phone/ your phone number when travelling?


in Poland by @davda1546 | 10d 10 days ago | 6 comments

Hey, hope everyone is well!

We're leaving in a month to go travelling. Our first destination is still to be confirmed, but will likely be Poland or Slovakia. We will be moving around every month or two to different destinations.

The question we have is: what do people do with phones/ phone numbers when hopping from country to country? Ideally we'd just like one number for the whole trip (even better, the number we already have) wherever we go, rather than getting new SIMs with different numbers.

This is just so it's easier to keep in contact with family/ clients/ etc.

Does international health insurance for digital nomads exist?

 

by @al_steffen | 6mo 6 months ago | 59 comments

Hey Nomads!

Iโ€™m looking for an international health insurance (no travel insurance) for my nomadic life. It should cover the basic services and at least be accepted in the EU (itโ€™s ok if itโ€™s not accepted in the US as Iโ€™m aware they rarely are). Nice to have: enter into a contract online. Anyone got a good experience or a recommendation?

Thanks in advance!

I dream of being a digital nomad? How do I do it?


by @programmingmark | 7mo 7 months ago | 2 comments

Hello digital nomad!

I dream of being an independent digital nomad. But it feels very elusive & unattainable with my success rate. In full disclosure, whilst I have dreamed about making money online since high school; I have not earned a single cent making money online. $0, nada, zilch!! On the contrary, I have spent a lot of time & money on books, podcasts. Even though I have spent a lot of time reading/listening to others, I do not have anything to show for it!

I have made attempts in the past to start an online business, but these fizzle out quite quickly when I do not see traction especially when the goal I have set myself is too high.

Instead of reaching for the ultimate nomadic lifestyle goal, I want to start much smaller. Really small! I am simply looking to make $50 profit per month from a new online business. Thatโ€™s it.

I need some advice from you please!

  • Is $50 profit too low? How long did it take you to earn $50 profit per month?

  • What is a good way of achieving this goal?

Thanks

How do digital nomads pay tax?


by @rodriigovieira | 8mo 7 months ago | 19 comments

Hello everyone! Iโ€™m new here and probably this is a very newbie question, but it doesnโ€™t leave my head.

How do you, nomads, pay your taxes? I mean, if youโ€™re constantly traveling, how are you going to pay taxes for a certain country if you are going to stay there a short period of time?
Or do you return to your โ€œoriginal countryโ€ and then pay them?

By the way, this forum has very nice cool formatting features! :smile:

My first time nomad-ing... Spain or Portugal?


in Portugal by @jasraj | 8mo 8 months ago | 6 comments

Hey everyone,

Iโ€™m a freelance + nomad newbie, off for my 1st proper trip in May. Iโ€™m wanting to spend a month somewhere and go from there.

I just came back from Slovenia/Ljubljana and loved it there (just a week). I donโ€™t mind โ€œsleepierโ€ places par-say, as long as theyโ€™re close to a beach or nature of some kind. In fact, I kinda like places less-busy and a bit smaller/cosier.

Iโ€™m been swaying towards Porto, but have been impressed by the rave reviews Iโ€™ve seen for Valencia.

-> Have you every nomad-ed in a Spanish/Portuguese city? Iโ€™d love to know where and what you liked/disliked :slight_smile:

Thanks! :slight_smile:

Central America - Where and what's next?


by @as11 | 8mo 8 months ago | 11 comments

Currently in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico and heading to Santa Teressa, Costa Rica next week.
Then Aruba in the Caribbean Sea for Christmas and New Year.

However I feel I want to head back to Central America to bring living costs down, rather than staying in the Caribbean Sea among the expensive Islands.

This means I have around 2 - 2,5 month of unplanned travelling.
Any digital nomads who have ideas about where to head in that timeframe?

Anyone know an accountant for Canadian nomads/expats?

Hey guys, this was my first year as a Canadian nomad.

As far as I know of, Canadians donโ€™t pay taxes if they do not live in the country for 6 months.

But Iโ€™d like to talk to an accountant or someone who does Canadian taxes specifically for expats and nomads to get clear on the rules and for help on my return coming up.

Does anyone know someone who specializes in Canada who can help? Iโ€™ve seen plenty of US recommendations but none for us canucks.

Best place for Digital Nomad in Latin America?


by @rose_davis | 10mo 9 months ago | 7 comments

Hi!

I am planning to move to Latin America for 3-4 months (Oct-January). Iโ€™ve narrowed down 6 different places that I want to visit before committing to settling down, but Iโ€™d love to get some community input.

Here are the cities Iโ€™m considering:

  • Quito, Ecuador
  • Cuenca, Ecuador
  • Medellin, Columbia
  • Cartagena, Columbia
  • Antigua, Guatemala
  • San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala

The most important things Iโ€™m looking for:

  • Fast/easily accessible internet
  • Easy to meet other nomads/make friends in general
  • Safe for women
  • Some sort of spiritual community (Iโ€™m also a yoga teacher)
  • Easily walkable city

Anyone have any experience with these places and can give some insight? Iโ€™m also completely open to other recommendations.

Thanks!
Rose

How do we solve housing for digital nomads?

 

by @rad4ever | 10mo 10 months ago | 61 comments

Thereโ€™s been a lot of discussion on this recently.

Nomads usually stay in hostels, hotels and short-term apartments. But itโ€™s all not very optimal.

Iโ€™ve heard people suggest getting funding and building a network of houses you can stay at for a subscription price (e.g. Bruno Haid is working on that).

I donโ€™t want do physical stuff, so Iโ€™m thinking of building a platform around making housing better for nomads.

What are the housing problems nomads face? And how can we solve them with products/services?
