Within the 150 sq mile territory, the main island is St Vincent. In the lower 2/3 you’ll find the Grenadines, the smaller chain of islands stretching south from St Vincent to Grenada.
The Grenadines are comprised of over 32 islands and cays, 9 of which are inhabited. All are volcanic in origin, deeply embayed with inlets where clear aquamarine waters shallow up the finest sandy beaches.

Kitesurfing in the Grenadines

The trade winds blow from December/January to June, stronger winds generally between January and March. In the beginning of the season the wind direction is NE passing gradually to E as the season progresses.
Generally, the wind is stronger in the morning but it’s not unusual to have some weeks when it blows more then 25 knots, day and night.
The temperature is almost always about 30c, with a water temp that stays around 28c…making it a wetsuit free spot all year.

Kitesurfing Spots

Union Island

Union island´s mountainous outline greets visitors with a striking and picturesque array of green peaks and ridges. Clifton is a nice kite spot to stretch your legs on the day of arrival. It will delight you with turquoise shallow waters, protected by reef. Frigate Bay is just around the corner, an amazing flat water spot that works with easterly winds.

The Tobago Cays

Known as the jewel of the Caribbean, this National park is a group of small, deserted islands surrounded by a lively horseshoe reef. This is the place to swim with the turtles and enjoy a great snorkeling session, checking out the magically diverse ecosystem under the water…all this after a good kite session of course!
I dare you to see the 225 different fish species in these waters!
The only island you are authorized to launch or land your kite is Jamesby. You need to go upwind of Baradel to find some fun waves to play with. You can also cruise to Petit Tabac to check out the reefs for a more serious surf session. If the wind is light, the dinghy will take you upwind with your launched kite from Baradel Beach…or you can always launch your kite from the boat that you came with!

Petit Tabac

Petit Tabac is a small deserted island where the Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed. It´s a beautiful day-anchorage for an epic kiteboarding session. From here you can reach very good reefs, and if the conditions are right you will explore some fine waves.

The smooth Salt Whistle Bay is the place to anchor. Just a few meters away from the boat on the windward side is the best all-around kitesurf spot in the Grenadines.
It’s perfect for the intermediate kiter with side-on wind, reef and a sandy beach that allows kiters to play. If the anchorage is fairly empty, you can also go for an excellent flat water session in the bay.
If you still have some power in your legs, walk to the top of this one road island to see a stunning view (especially at sunset) of the neighboring islands. A jaunt over to Dennis´s Hideaway for a nice meal and a Pina Colada is always a good day’s end.

This tiny, desolate white sandy-beached island is a great resting spot during a session. Drop your kite and just enjoy the view of all that surrounds you. Remember to bring your ice chest ashore with a few chilled beers!
From Mopion you can go up to discover waves on the north side of Petit St. Vincent. PSV is a private island, allowing you to come ashore for a nature walk and their jazzy beach bar.

kitesurf spot : The

Saint Barth Kitesurf Spot Kite

 St.Barth kite spot exclusive island
Saint Barthelemy, a small island in the northern Antilles in the french Caribbean, with beautiful beaches and a superb site for the ideal introduction to kitesurfing. 
 crystal clear, warm waters and steady winds! The island maintains its natural warm and peace by discouraging the cruise ships crowds and big “all inclusive“ hotels. It is rather a quiet exclusive place. Most buildings are only two stories, with colorful flower boxes and charming gingerbread style architecture. 
 In the lagoon of Grand Cul de Sac, a sandbar exposed to the wind  is the perfect kite spot  flat shallow protect and windy!.
The beach of Grand Cul-de-Sac is the easiest beach in the Caribbean for learning to sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing as it has a reef which closes off the entire bay. The current that passes outside the reef here also carries the migrating whales and dolphins.

wind condition and Kitesurf and windsurf spots!
In the Caribbean the winds  blow  always from north to east occasionally southeast
St. Barth has consistent winds averaging 18 knots in the winter. In February the winds reach up to 21 knots. With the air temperature averaging in 26C (79F) and the water temperature about 24C (75F) you can forget about your wetsuit. Although you can kite or windsurf pretty much anywhere, the eastern part of the St. Barth island is the best to kitesurf and windsurf.

  The winds blow onshore into the bays, which are protected by multiple reefs. The waters are calm and shallow; ideal for beginners. Grand Cul de Sac is the most popular beach by both kite and windsurfers because of its glass-like smooth and turquoise waters. Toiny beach is another favorite windy beach for those who want to experience some “bump and jump” conditions.
 Windsurfing rentals and instructions are available. no kite surfing rentals available, but they offers lessons.  

 Also the Bay of Flamands is really good kitesurf spot waves when the swell is coming from north - north east.
 In the Bay of St  John is allow windsurf but not kitesurf for safety because there is the airplane runaway.

To get to St. Barths fly to St. Maarten (St. Martin) and take a short ferry ride and arrive in Gustavia. Or take a 15 minutes flight to St. Barths airport (SBH)  with WinAir airlines.
