Advice on Kiting Ambergris Cay, Turks and Caicos

Postby Bettyboarder » Fri Dec 11, 2020 12:24 am

Hey guys can you help me decide if its worth hauling my gear down there. We were supposed to be in Grace Bay but the resort we were staying at isn't opening due to lack of tourism so they "upgraded" us out to a private island Ambergris Cay. Sounds awesome and looks amazing. They have a kiter in their video but has anyone kited there? Which beaches work what kites size kites should I pack? Thanks for the help.

I’ve kited in T&C and in Ambergris Cay Belize, but not this combo.
Wind is pretty consistent in Turks during the season so I imagine this island would be similar? I would bring your gear otherwise if it’s blowing and your stuck on that luxury island sitting by the pool, you know that would suck.
