Corpus Christi - popular and user friendly launch sites

Postby mcombs71110 » Thu Nov 28, 2019 6:40 pm

Looks like I am going to Corpus Christi in March. I will be there for 10 days.

I am doing some research on local launches. Kiteboarding.com has a useful page with names and locations.

Violet Andrews Park (Wildcat Park) seems to be a popular launch.

I am looking for a locals input or anyone who has experience riding in CC. I will be staying close to downtown and looking for 2-4 different locations to kite. Bay/Ocean is fine.

You are most likely to find other riders on any given day at Wildcat or Grassy. The other option is to go to the beach and look for kites in the air. You should get good winds in March.

Where's the usual foiling spot? I've been to Corpus many times but that was several years ago before I started hydrofoiling. Thinking of spending the rest of the winter either in Corpus or SPI in my RV. Love the group of guys in corpus but SPI seems to have more riding spots and is more interesting.

Lots of good options for HF. Again WC is the most popular. North Beach, Oleander and TAMUCC all offer quick access to deep water depending on wind direction.

I’m currently driving down from Chicago to spend the next week kiteboarding in Corpus. It’s been about 5 years since my last visit and I now mainly ride a hydrofoil. I’m unfamiliar which spots are good for the hf. Any suggestions? Can you foil wildcat if you do a long walk out? Thanks
