FLORIDA KEYS KITE VACATION!!!!! 4/16-23

Postby Like To Kite » Tue Feb 28, 2012 6:06 pm

Hello Everyone!

Hope you've been having a great winter season! It's been super nice living in Florida for the winter with tons of very fun kite days! If you'd like to get out of the cold and do some warm weather kiting you are welcome to come visit me. March and April tend to be the most consistently windy months around here. I've got an awesome vacation rental house for a week in both March and April perfectly positioned for downwinders from/to various kite beaches. We can launch and land right at the house which is a nice luxury as there are not many suitable launches in the Keys as the area is covered by Mangroves. We'll be just 3 miles upwind of Annes Beach, one of the best places around (in the world in my opinion) for learning. We are also 8 miles downwind of Whale Harbor, a popular kite spot. The entire area is flat and shallow, perfect conditions for learning and progressing for any level of kiting!


Awesome Downwinders!

Fun and Friendly Kiters :D

Beautiful location with lots to do!

If there happens to be a day without wind there is awesome snorkeling, diving, fishing, SUP, sailing, sightseeing, bars, restaurants and of course lounging in the sun with a drink in hand. :wink:

The house is rented from Monday April 16th through Monday the 23rd. It is a 5 Bedroom/4 Bathroom home with Ocean Views and Beach Launch! There are only a couple of spots left either on sofa beds or air mattresses for 400 for the week. Here are photos of the house:

Fly into Miami (MIA) which is 1.5 hours or Ft. Lauderdale (FLL) which is 2 hrs and could possibly be a little cheaper. Flights from Chicago seem to range from around 200 - 400.

Come down South and enjoy the nice winds, warm weather, and friendly company. Lessons for all levels are available. Please contact me ASAP to reserve a spot, they are going fast! Thanks so much!

Look at these forecasts Amanda has been sending me! This is supposed to be typical of March/April down there! Jason and I are going to try to make it down 3/16-23. Anyone else wanna join during that time?! Great opportunity with the house Amanda is planning to rent for convenient and comfortable amenities with like-minded friends and our own access to the bliss!!

It's been super nice down here! Sometimes less than the graph above shows although very consistent overall. Today heading on a 40 mile downwinder from Miami down to Key Largo! On Wednesday another 12 to 24 miles through the Keys. Going with the group that I work with so should be fun! We still have one or two sofa bed or air mattress spots left for anyone that can join us for the April trip from the 16th through the 23rd.
