The weather in the Philippines has two principal seasons named after the particular winds known as Amihan and Habagat. For the windsurfers and kite surfers it is the Amihan season which brings them year after year back to Cuyo Island. The Amihan season lasts from late October to March and is characterised by moderate temperature, rarely any rainfall, and almost daily wind from the Northeast. This is in contrast to the hot Habagat season with frequent rainfall that lasts about from April to September. During this time the wind blows very moderate from the west with less chances to go surfing. In Cuyo town the wind blows during the winter season offshore and but still provides at the Capusan Beach good spots for beginners and professionals. Only a handful of other windsurfers and kiteboarders will be sharing this slalom blaster’s and wave heaven with you. Windsurfers and kiteboarders on the island come from a great diversity of countries – you could be sailing with a Filipino, American, Australian, Swedish, Swiss, and Brit, all in the same day. But unlike on Bulabog beach in Boracay you will never have more than 10 kiters out on the water in Cuyo. If you look for the best of windsurfing and kitesurfing in the Philippines come to Cuyo Island. The best place to stay is the “Quijano Windsurfing Retreat”: info.philippineswindsurfing.com and there have a other hotel also at town proper….
