Usually the wind direction is East/Southeast (trade winds) and it blows at about 12-16 knots average. This is a light-medium wind area and the best conditions for riding would be in June to August, when the Mara'amu wind, from the South, blows stronger than the trade winds. From East, rest of the year. They ride almost everyday and most riders use bigger gear.
