Postby Cristiano_Leandro » Tue Apr 18, 2017 1:45 pm

Hey guys,

Im heading to NW Florida for my sisters wedding this september, ive been looking for some info but the forum i found is really outdated :cry: .
Im staying in Pensacota and i heard a good place to Kite around there is Destin. Anybody have any additional info that could come in handy? Kite size? Beaches? Wind speed?


Cheers, :jump:

It's lightwind here, bring bigger kites and maybe 1 smaller one. Wind is mostly 13 mph to 22

Yes, it's in the same vicinity as the other spot in Fort Walton Beach I was telling you about. It's more a function of our winds here on the Gulf Coast. It's why I always say "We're unwilling experts in light wind kiteboarding." ;)
