Florida provides rich and varied kiteboarding with over 1350 miles of shoreline to choose from for year round riding. Everything from great waves in strong cold fronts and other powerful weather systems, blue water kiting, epic downwinders as short or as long as you like and a wide selection of butter to rip through. Quite a few notable kiteboarders and famous watermen got their start here such as Lou Waiman, and Flash Austin.

Florida is bounded by the fast moving warm waters of the Gulfstream to the east and the Gulf of Mexico to the west. The State is almost 450 miles long north to south, about 365 miles at the widest point tapering down to roughly 50 miles at the narrowest. You can start in the lowlands of Georgia at the state line, head south and end up in the waters of the Caribbean Sea. Orlando and Miami have long been destinations for travelers from around the world. Now, a number of those travelers also want to ride the waters of Florida too. If the wind is on, the riding experience can be epic be it in the swells or ripping across glassy sheltered waters. How about taking your pick of launches in excess of a 1500 square mile area of warm sheltered water? The Florida Keys is that and more. Head up the Gulf coast and explore countless sand bars scattered among many thinly populated areas. You could hit stretches of coast that perhaps have never been kited before. Ponce de Leon explored Florida seeking the Fountain of Youth. He was in the right place for it, just about five centuries too soon to rig up and rip! Today, no problem, just add wind and grab all the windblown gusto the state has to offer.

Some of the stronger wind months aside from hurricanes, often come with fronts in October through May. Some of the best kiting comes in these months to Florida. Cold fronts sweep completely across the entire State and in the process bring winds from one end to the other. Fronts can create rideable winds for hours to a week or more. Winds typically ease off between cold fronts for a day to several days. From May to September thermal winds can setup riding sessions in afternoons at times throughout the State. The thermal winds can be a bit lighter in speed but frequently rideable all the same. Be careful as the thermal winds can sometimes build up to squalls sweeping out from inland or suddenly shut off and even change to offshore winds around sunset.

Tropical systems can bring rideable conditions at times during the summer and fall but they can also frequently bring violent squalls. Just because it is blow’n doesn’t necessarily mean it is worth go’in, so always check the forecasts, color radar and real time winds. Powerful squall lines can be at the leading edge of cold fronts at times. Such squall lines appear in satellite and radar imagery and can be dangerous to kiters. It is best to time your setup to ride until after the line passes over you, often a fairly easy thing to do with Internet weather resources. Always be aware of weather and conditions in your vicinity when you have a kite up.

There launches rideable in winds from any direction in many parts of the state, access to some may involve some driving however. Much of the east coast is rideable with winds from the north to east to south. While much of the west coast is rideable with winds from the north to west to south. The best winds are side to side onshore. Onshore winds have been associated with a high percentage of accidents. Light onshore winds can make getting a safe distance from the shore, bystanders, etc. very hard to where responsible riding may not be on. Winds that pass over land before reaching the riding can be gusty, potentially with substantial lulls to where keeping your kite in the air may be a problem. Launches and riding areas near inlets and cuts may have strong and contrary tidal currents. Typical “rideable” wind directions are identified in this guide for various launches. Those directions with in the stated ranges that provide side to side onshore conditions are usually the best wind directions for those areas.

The riding season is year round thanks in large part to the warm waters of the Florida Current and Gulfstream. Cold fronts can take the air temperature down to 50, 40 and even into the 30’s F range at times. The further north you are, the lower the temperatures can go in a given frontal cycle. Winter water temperatures can vary from the 50’s in the northern part of Florida to the 70’s in the south. In the summer the whole State can get pretty warm to where guys might wear rash guards or just board shorts. In the colder months guys in the south may be in 3/2 wetsuits with riders in the northern parts perhaps in 5/3 wetsuits or better at times. Booties make sense at many launch areas to avoid cuts and if in doubt, put them on.

Sea lice are sometimes a factor for short durations in late spring and early fall in some years. Portuguese Man-O-War can be an issue in the winter months but are fairly easily avoided if you keep your eyes open to windward. Shark are fairly common, we just don’t see them that often. Attacks on kiteboarders have been very rare worldwide to date. Avoid riding near active fish schools, fishermen, inlets, sunset and sunrise, etc. to reduce the odds of a negative encounter.

There are many weather Internet sites that cover Florida, including:

Marine forecasts, radar, satellite images & real time winds:…ineWeather.htm

Historical wind records and real time winds:

Many riders spend a good deal of time on 12 to 16 m C kites with the odd 7 to 9 m session in more powerful winds. For the lighter wind conditions in the summer and between cold fronts some kiters bring out gear in the 16 to 20 m range. The wider latitude of the new hybrid kites allow riders to cover a lot with 12 m to 17 m kites except when the stronger conditions pump through dictating rigging a smaller kite. Rider weight, board size along with actual winds factor into kite size selection of course. Riders can expand their range with a given kite by carrying a couple of boards and 10 m line extensions. Surfboards and skimboards can expand the lower end even more. Want to learn to ride? Be sure to locate a good instructor to line up quality lessons. There are many instructors in Florida to interview and choose from.

You generally cannot drive on beaches in South Florida while this is permitted on a limited basis on beaches in parts of Northern Florida. Some require four wheel drive, make this determination before heading on to the beach!

NOTE: Where “Restrictions Apply” appears below means there are kiteboarding guidelines, rules and/or laws are in place governing kiteboarding. Check and local sources for further information. Threats to access effect us ALL, residents and visitors alike. Access to ride is valuable, take care of it wherever you ride. Always research local conditions, precautions and talk to local riders before visiting an area to ride and common sense and simple courtesy when you arrive. As a rule of thumb don’t launch from most guarded beaches, go beyond 100 yards from shore and stay there until time to come in. This includes buoyed swimming areas. Launch, land and ride ideally at least 100 ft. from bystanders and avoid beach jumping. Follow “Rules of the Road” with other kiters and water users but if circumstances indicate, yield the right of way. Avoid crowds and complaints from others through courtesy and common sense. It isn’t hard to do and can assure many years of great riding if we pull it off.

So, let’s take a tour of Florida starting with the less frequented launches in the Northwest part of the State. Only a few of the launches in each area will be presented here due to space limitations. You will find additional sites described on

Foil boarding is great Miami

The 8 Stages of Kite Foiling by Jeremie Tronet

Foiling is on everybody’s mind lately, you have the riders who tried it and can’t stop thinking about it and the ones who didn’t try yet and wonder if it is as fun as it looks.
Using a foil is not just an amazing tool for racers, hydrofoils come with complete new sensations, goals and excitements.


With North Kiteboarding introducing the Foil Ltd I finally got the chance to give it a try and understand more clearly this new kind of flying addiction that is rapidly spreading among Kiteboarders.
The North Kiteboarding Foil Ltd has a different shape than the regular foil that you can see out there which intrigued many people.
Performance wise it didn’t feel different than the regular shape foil while riding it (at my humble beginner foil level).


The two advantages that I have noticed with the North Kiteboarding foil Ltd were the added stability and the fact that there are no rough edges to hit when you wipe out which is a very good addition if you want to get into foiling.


After spending a couple weeks playing like a kid on my new North Kiteboarding Foil I have tried to retrace the 8 different stages that might go to your mind before giving it a try.
1- The Admiration
Have you ever seen something you had to stop for a few seconds to make sure you saw right and you were not dreaming ? Then you had to actually take a few seconds to realize what was going on.
That’s what seeing someone riding a foil, flying over the water will do to you, like the first time you saw Kitesurfing.
You are not spoilt by the sight of hundreds of Kitesurfers on the water anymore, you are in awe of this new “sport” all over again.
You sit there and watch that person riding back and forth and start wondering, dreaming and slowly drifting to the second stage: The Envy

2- The Envy
Like the first time you saw someone kitesurfing, you knew you wanted to try it out and do it, Foiling will certainly have the same effect on you. Seeing what can be done and hearing about the silent flight sensations are too good not to give it a try.
Some will be a little more compulsive and will buy a hydrofoil right away while others might deviate to the “questioning” stage.
3- Questioning
You start making out the basic physics involved into foiling, in a few words you wonder how does that thing work, is it easy, is it hard ?
Would I be able to do it, Am I a good enough kiteboarder to try foiling and have fun like the other riders ?
To help you go through the wondering stage a little faster, I can tell you that if you are a confident kiteboarder with a good kite control, Hydrofoiling is definitely accessible to you and shouldn’t let yourself be dragged for too long on to the doubting stage.


4- Doubting
Before trying on a foil board for the first time you might doubt yourself, the old “good windsurfer syndrome”, if you are a good kiteboarder and some of your buddies are already up and riding on their foil and you do not want to look ridiculous or pass for a beginner all over again.
This happened to a lot of windsurfers who had a good level and didn’t want to become beginners all over again and start kitesurfing …


Even worse, what if I can’t do it, or maybe what if I can go and stand up and ride on the foil at my first try? This last thought will be very helpful to get you the stage of confidence.
5- Confidence
You are a Kiteboarder, pro or intermediate, you can kite well, you have a good kite control, how hard could it be, foiling seems almost like using a regular surfboard, so you set up your kite and decide to give it a go, drag the board under your arm, kite in the air feeling super excited and impatient as a kid before Xmas.
Whether you got the latest high end North Kiteboarding Foil Ltd or borrowed a friends board, you’ve decided that you will no longer be the guy on the beach while others are riding in 8 knots of wind but the guy people watch in admiration and envy !


6- The Frustration
As you will try your first water start, you might go through 30min to one hour of struggles or more to finally get going.
Because yes, using a foil is something completely new and will require that your legs forget some of their old muscle memories acquired by kitesurfing.


Even though you read all these instructions, once you have your feet on the board and send the kite to start, your instincts automatically kick in and you start forgetting everything you read.
Having someone to give you the right advice and correct your mistakes will save you a lot of time.
You might feel like a complete beginner for a little bit but once you finally get up on the board, get the foil rising and experience your first foil wipe out you will definitely feel like a cowboy at a rodeo show riding some angry bull.


But after a few tries and the frustration aside, take a deep breath and focus on all these advice you saw online, relax your legs and start shifting your weight more forward on the board.
Start riding the board flat with the foil still under water, as you will gain speed the board will slowly rise up and that’s when you will experience slow levitation, the amazing feeling of flying over the water in total silence.
7- The Addiction
That is it, the foil gave you its first free sample of what it feels to fly over the water, you are amazed on how fast you can go and how far upwind the foil will take you. Experiencing it gives it another dimension, you are like Marty in Back to the Future riding the hover board, or Aladdin on his magic carpet.


You are in love with that sensation, it feels great, and you don’t want it to stop.


Using a hydrofoil board opens you to many possibilities and new goals like finally getting to jibe without putting the board back on the water, riding toe side, etc. Everything that seemed so simple as a kiteboarder become your next goals and feeds your addiction.


8- The Love
As a kiteboarder for 15 years I didn’t get the same thrill as during my first few years of kitesurfing, you loose a little bit of how stoked you get when you go kiteboarding, you miss that new feeling, that spark between you and the sport and it slowly becomes like an old married couple loosing the passion.


Foiling brings that back instantly, you start dreaming of foiling, you still feel the sensation in your legs when you are walking after a long foil session, that gut feeling of flying can be brought back just by thinking about it, it brought back the spark and the passion and you will be ready for 15 more years of happiness.
It will also reconcile you with using your regular kitesurfing boards and might push you to try out other aspects of the sports ( boots, sliders, strapless freestyle, racing, waves, etc ..)
My simple advice:


1- If you have the budget for it, go for the North kiteboarding foil Ltd, it is the one I learnt on and keep on using every day and love it more at every session.


2- While waiting for your next foil, practice riding a strapless board if you have never done it before.


3- I would recommend using the foil strapless to avoid any knee or ankle injuries.( no straps make it a little harder to position the feet on the board)
A lot of people are using the foils with only one front strap or both straps which are also ok, but for my personal experience I loved the feeling of being able to jump away from the board if needed and not getting locked in the foot straps when the foil dives down.


4 – Put pressure on your front leg as you start and while you ride … You didn’t read that enough, you better off nose diving than having the foil jump up.
Do not only “push” with your front leg, but shift your hips and weight toward the front of the board and do not hesitate to shift your front foot even further forward to control the foil better if you are riding strapless.


5- Put pressure on your toes, you do not want to be edging with your heels too much, you want to try to keep your board flat and try to imagine the shape of your foil underwater (thanks yo my friend Alex Caizergues for the advice) it will make more sense of how and why you are doing it.


6- Do not try to hydrofoil for the first time with very light wind conditions, wait for enough wind to keep your kite stable in the air, but do not go too powered, if you would be able to ride comfortably on a 12m go on your 10m or 9m. I personally use my 8m North Kiteboarding Evo during more of my Kite Hydrofoil sessions.

I hope this advice and article will make you want to try out Kite Foiling and experience this great feeling of flying by being part of the wind.
