www.windfinder.com/windstatistics/mogadishu_adden_adde_airport click this link derf you will see you get noce strong winds in dec jan feb (australian summer) and quite moderate winds in june july august (australian winter) so its a nice place for kiting for sure :D

If you click on this link and scroll down you will be able to find the tides which i am sure you already know www.windfinder.com/tide/mogadishu_adden_adde_airport but may be useful

And this link www.windfinder.com/forecast/mogadishu_adden_adde_airport?src=android shows a very very very nice forcast! Lots of wind im jelous.

From looking at satelite images it looks like this rocky bottom stretches along the entire coastline... There is some spots with sand i just need to calculate how far and cost of travel to see if things are reasonable might take a bit of time.



THIS is why I like Seebreeze. Your time and effort to help Derf54 is what I hope people come on this forum for. Nice to see this post from you. Really...


I was going to say the same thing: really nice to see a helpful and informative post from Causehecan that doesn't involve sledging, sarcasm or nastiness. Nice one mate ??

Wow. Are you seriously in Mogadishu?

In a side note, what's it like? We only know it from Black Hawk Down..

Turkish are doing the new airport hotel and airport extension which moves it into the water.
China is sponsoring roading infrastructure as they did in Kenya
Qatar is supporting with local infrastructure hospitals/places of worship.
