If the wind is low, the little airport wave breaking just in front of the club is perfect for surfing or using our SUP boards, but be careful with the shallow reef.

FRIGATE – UNION ISLAND

Frigate is a flatwater spot located in Ashton, the other village on Union Island. The wind is blowing offshore over a walkway, created when the construction of a Marina started. The construction is now abandoned, but it created an amazing playground for kiters.

The spot is easiest accessed by boat, and a boat is needed for safety since the wind is offshore and the next spot is South America…

It takes only 10 minutes by boat to go to Frigate with our Half Day Tour.

OTHER KITESURFING SPOTS IN THE GRENADINES

 
 

SALT WHISTLE BAY – MAYREAU

    mayreau1 300x200 Kitesurfing Spots of the Grenadines in the Caribbean Mayreau is a neighbouring island located just a short boat ride from Union Island.

The spot is called Salt Whistle Bay and is a favored anchor spot among sailors visiting The Grenadines. A thin sand spit is separating the bay where the boats anchors from the kite spot. This makes it an excellent spot to bring non kiting friends and partners; they can relax in the calm bay protected from the wind, while you kite on the other side, just 10 meters away.

The bay where we kite is protected by a reef, and has waves on the outside, and small kickers to play with on the inside. Sometimes when there are fewer sailboats, experienced riders can also ride in Salt Whistle Bay on the flatwater section.

The JT Pro Center offers day tours to Mayreau.

JAMESBY – THE TOBAGO CAYS

  tobago cays 300x200 Kitesurfing Spots of the Grenadines in the Caribbean The Tobago Cays experience is a must when visiting the Grenadines.

Here you are guaranteed to see big turtles when snorkeling, in addition to a rich sea life, beautiful fish of all colours and sizes, and majestic rays floating by.

Kitesurfing in the Tobago Cays is an amazing experience: it is a beautiful, huge lagoon of the clearest shades of blue but very choppy and not very fun for freestyle or jumping.

You can launch your kite from James By, The wind is on shore and much weaker on the beach so be careful when launching your kite. You can also lunch from Petit Tabas where you need to be careful with the reef.

It is forbidden to launch from Baradal (the sandy island where the turtle watching is located). A great way to go back to Union is to go downwind by your kite (only with a boat following you of course).

Remember: Kiteboarding in the Cays is restricted, and it is important to respect the launch zones and rules. The rangers are there every day, making sure the rules are followed.

MORPION

         

morpion Kitesurfing Spots of the Grenadines in the Caribbean

Nothing is quite like Morpion. A small island of sand in the middle of the sea, surrounded by protective reef.

A lonely umbrella provides the only shadow on Morpion. The spot isn’t the best, the shallow reefs can be pretty dangerous, but everyone must see this sandy island once in their life.

It is a great place to start a downwinder to Frigate.
