Travel Forums Central/South America & The Caribbean Carnivals / Surfing and kitesurfing schools

I am thinking about making a trip down to Colombia next January or February 2014.

I was wondering if people have recommendations in terms of which festival would be better to attend: Carnaval de Barranquilla or Carnaval de Blancos y Negros. I have attended Mardi Gras in New Orleans before so whichever festival is more different than Mardi Gras is probably the one I'd want to attend.

Also, do people have recommendations on the best surfing and kitesurfing spots, as well as any good surfing and kitesurfing schools? I have surfed before in Australia and California but it has been a good few years!

Thank you.

P.S. If anybody would be interested in travelling together for part or all of this trip, feel free to send me a message!
