The launch is on the ENE side of the island about half way between US1 Overseas Highway and the north side of the island. It is a tight launch but is one of the few places to launch during a North to North East wind in The Florida Keys.
Wind directions: ENE to E to WSW
PRECAUTIONS: Booties or foot protection are not necessary but recommended for beginners due to some sharp rocks, urchins, and coralline algae. Watch for submerged rocks and super slippery mud (marl) at the waters edge. Be aware of the current coming in and out of the cuts between the islands.
High temperatures typically stay around the 80’s. The wintertime comes with highs in the 70’s with temperatures dropping down into the 50’s on some nights.
It is your responsability to check whether kitesurfing is allowed at the spot; you might need a 'special permit' or membership from a local kite organization, etc. Local rules can change. Respect others - kiters or not; kite safely and enjoy the wind!
