Kiteboard Islamorada

Driving over the bridges through Islamorada, it’s hard not to notice an increasing number of Kiteboarders taking advantage of the island breeze. 

This unique, high-flying, extreme sport has been gaining popularity over the past few years, and has found a home right here in the heart of Islamorada. Fueled by wind, and driven with muscle and mind, these new age wind surfers rip across the water, and flip into the air making the sport worth watching from the shore or by boat.

Or better yet, try it yourself! Beginner lessons are now being offered and include the kite, and everything you need to get started. Although I have yet to try it, I’ve heard first hand the sport is nothing short of addicting. Maybe I’ll give it a shot the next time it’s too windy to fish.

There are a couple of kite boarding outfitters here in Islamorada (lessons, sales, etc). A popular place to launch is from Whale Harbor. It's not happening this time of year very much because it is mostly calm. Come late October through the winter they'll be everywhere!

What a nice post! I practiced this extrem sport a few years ago, but since a shark tried to attack me I decide to leave it, specially for my family. However I have to say it is still my passion.
