Postby Julmendez » Wed May 22, 2019 4:03 pm

Hi! I’m from Argentina and I’m planning to visit Florida in August and I’d like to take some kitesurf’s Lessons because I’m begginer. Do you know where are the best places to rent equipment and take some lessons? Is the wind ok in August? I’ll appreciate any information! Thanks!!!!

What part of Florida will you be visiting? Florida is a long state. If you're visiting Jacksonville, a kite school in the Keys would be almost as far as the Outer Banks of North Carolina. School recommendations depend on where you'll be located.

Wind is very light in August in Florida. August in Florida would not be good for learning. Florida has moderate winds generally October through March/April. Summer has the lightest wind.

We’ll be few days in the east coast and some days in the west coast. Our main point will be Delray beach but plain to travel all around the state. Thanks for your answer!

Jupiter Kiteboarding (https://www.jupiterkiteboarding.com/) is about 30 miles from Delray. Further north, 321 Kiteboarding is in Cocoa Beach (https://321kiteboarding.com/). You could contact them about lessons and wind conditions on the east coast.

On the west coast, there is an active kiteboarding community in the St. Pete Beach/Tierra Verde area (Tampa Bay). Fort DeSoto Park is a good place to kite when there is wind.

August usually has very light wind, unless there is a storm system influencing the area. Your best bet for wind in August may be the Keys (farthest point to the south). The Keys will sometimes get wind when the rest of the state is quiet.

Good luck! :thumb:
