Summer is here, this is what it means for kiteboarding.
Kiteboarding in St Petersburg during the Summer
The wind we get during the summer months (July through September) are not as frequent as during our windy season (October through June). We will still get wind but there are more lightwind or no wind days than there are windy days.
Wind in the summer
The winds we go kiteboarding in during the summer months are sea breezes or low pressure systems. Sea breezes are typically lighter during the summer, 9 – 12 mph, but occasionally we will experience stronger winds, over 12 mph. The stronger sea breezes are more difficult to predict and are often forecasted last minute. Low pressure systems are okay when they aren’t accompanied by storms. With a good low pressure system we can get 4-6 days of good, consistent wind. Our goal would be to get you out two or three days in a row to fully learn how to kiteboard. The awesome thing about learning how to kiteboard is that once you get it, you have it, like riding a bike. If you can learn in the summer then you’ll be able to enjoy a full season of kiteboarding.
Learning how to kiteboard during the summer
Scheduling is a little more complicated and chances for wind go down but it is still possible. We want to be completely transparent with you so that you learn how to kiteboard efficiently and are stoked. Our passion is kiteboarding and we want to share that with you. If you want to learn how to kiteboard, fill out the form below and we’ll come up with a gameplan to get you riding.
Common spot to kiteboard during the summer
The West Side of the Skyway Bridge is the most common spot for kiteboarding during the summer time. If there is a seabreeze, the west side of Skyway usually experiences slightly stronger winds. The water around the launch area is shallow and friendly to beginners and experienced riders.
