Highlights: Jeneponto on Sulawesi island, is the widiest spot in Indonesia with consistent trade winds blowing 20-35 knots from May through October. It's so windy, the Indonesian government decided to set up the biggest wind farm of the archipelago.
Jeneponto is flat and safe with a huge sandy lagoon and side/on-shore wind. This gem of a kitespot is ideal for beginners and experienced riders who enjoy big air jumps and riding unhooked. The Indonesian top 5 riders for the Woo height leaderboard are all from Jeneponto, this is not by coincidence!
Not only is Jeneponto an uncharted kitespot with epic riding, it also has easy access from Makassar International Airport to make for a smooth-sailing holiday kite trip.
