The Diani Beach in Kenya is a good place for kiting. Its windy the whole year but the best month are from December to March, July and August. Most time light wind. Its an secure area because of the reef 300m from the shore. Beginners can stand on the ground in the flat water next to the beach, only small waves, there is a lot of space, i can advice it more than the populare spots in egypt. There are about three "stations" on the DIani Beach. The H2O Extreme is like a hostel. You can find more photos of the beach on 360 cities, the beach looks everywhere same.
