In two-and-a-half years the team of stoked publications collected first hand information from hundreds of experienced locals all over Europe among them guys like Sebastian Wenzel from Guincho, Bjorn Dunkerbeck on Gran Canaria, Irish wave hunter Timo Mullen, Achim Stutzmann on Fehmarn or Eduardo Bellini in Tarifa. The same applies to the photos which where taken by 100 of the worlds leading kite and windsurf photographers, it just feels like a who-is-who of the whole sector. This spotguide sets the standard, a must-have for all kite and windsurf travellers in Europe!

4.0 out of 5 stars At long last...... 22 May 2007
Finally traslated into English. This book was worth the wait. Very detailed information about a large number of spots. Good key coding system for easy reference. My only complaint is that certain regions of the UK are not mentioned. For example, the East Anglian coast is not featured. Although not a fantastic location, probably should have been included. Overall very good book and worth the (expensive) price.

Must have guide when searching for good wind/kite-surfing holiday destination. Very good!. The only missing bit is an online update perhaps provided by people who has been more recently to some of the destinations? Anyway, very useful!
