Any Easterly wind will be relatively unobstructed and good. Besides the winter month the direction is usually right. Seldom we have real strong wind here. Anything Westerly will be covered by the island hence is very hard to kite with.

From Shanghai take motorway to Ningbo, stay on the motorway until it ends. Then follow the signs for Zhoushan island until you reach the ferry boat. Use the ferry to get on the island.
