Hi everybody,

I will be in Senegal next week until mid january. I'll take my 12m kite and start in Dakar and hope to get some wind there. I also plan to got to Langue de Barbarie (and south, but if I got it correct, it is rather unlikely I will do kite sessions south, because of the wind direction and season).

My question: Is a shorty enough or shall I better take my 4/3 with me?

Thanks for your advice and let me know if someone wants to meet for a session :)

Kind regards from Austria,

Lorenz

GOOGLE TRANSLATED:

Salut tout le monde,

Je serai au Sénégal la semaine prochaine jusqu'à la mi-janvier. Je vais prendre mon cerf-volant de 12m et commencer à Dakar et j'espère y trouver du vent. Je prévois aussi d'aller en Langue de Barbarie (et au sud, mais si j'ai bien compris, il est peu probable que je fasse des sessions de kite au sud, à cause de la direction du vent et de la saison).

Ma question : est-ce qu'un shorty est suffisant ou dois-je mieux prendre mon 4/3 avec moi ?

Merci pour vos conseils et faites moi savoir si quelqu'un veut se rencontrer pour une session :)

Cordialement d'Autriche,

Lorenz

Hi Lorenz,

Welcome in Senegal !

I suggest you take your 4/3 wetsuit because now the water is still warm (around 23-24°c) but it should be colder since the new year as usual... now we use shorty (they use shorty, I already wear my 4/3 ;o)

Please tell us when you will be there eek For your information, I will be in the north along Senegal river at Lodge Ocean&Savane on 27-28-29 decembre.

Enjoy cool

Dear Lorentz, if you are the sensitive mediterranean type like Bertil, you should probably go for the 4/3. Otherwise, for the Nordic, Germanic or (Non-Viennese) Austrian types, a well-fitting long sleeve shorty should be enough on most days.

Cheers,

Jan

Thanks, I have the 4/3 with me :)

I'll be in Dakar tomorrow until 26th, then I might go north as well but the travel plans are still not fixed.

I'll try to send you a message with my number then we can use WhatsApp/telegram.

Kind regards, Lorenz
