Has anyone been kitesurfing in the Grenadines?

Postby shawn13 » Thu Jan 24, 2013 4:50 pm

I saw this place a while back advertising for an instructor http://www.kitesurfgrenadines.com

I'm actually curious if anyone has stayed and kited here? I've been kiting in Cuba 3 times in the past 6 months and I'm looking to explore new options. Feed back is greatly appreciated thanks!

If you haven't been to Costa Rica and you like to ride TT then I highly recommend www.bluedreamhotel.com
Great kiting, atmosphere and good value.
I went down there for the first time 2 weeks ago and it is now on my return list.

i have been kiting in the Grenadines consistently for the past 9 years by boat, running trips for kite surfers on the water. Still one of my favourite places to kite, in a week you can hit many different spots, each different
Kiting there is great with a variety of spots ... if you have access to boat!
Jeremie and Linn have boats and great knowledge of the local spots having also spent alot of time down there. They have a great setup in union island with some sweet kiting literally right on your doorstep, i can recommend heading down there for sure! Union island is a fun place to go and the culture is super laid back.

I decided I'm going to check it out for myself, heading to Barbados (silver sands area) at the end of Feb for a week, then Union Island for 2 weeks. Pity none of my mates can get time off work to join me, but i promised them i'd take some pictures so they don't feel like they missed out completely ;-)

will let you know what i think :D

Hello shawn13,
I just sent you an email about the GRENADINES. You are going to love it. Plus the people here are so friendly and Jeremie Tronet has an amazing school here. So for sure book your trip and come down.

P.S. You can check more pictures from my FACEBOOK (Dimitri Maramenides or Epickiteboarding)

You are going to enjoy it. But make sure to bring lots of sun screen and concerning kites bring a 9/12/14 meter kite and 1 twin tip. By the way did you ever get my email about the questions you asked because I never heard back from you!!!!
We have been here for 7 days now and have been kiting every single day. It's windy again today. Time to go kiting.

Yes I did! Sorry I didn't reply, I have been busy booking flights from Toronto and accommodations. Your pictures are amazing. I am super pumped to be there in a month!
