St Croix Kiteboarding & Kitesurfing
St Croix kiteboarding has come to St Croix with a bang! With its beautiful white sandy beaches, few crowds, and lots of open space, St Croix is an ideal kiteboarding location for beginners and experts alike. Kiteboarding in the Virgin Islands is becoming quite popular, and St Croix stands out due to its variety of flat-water and wave-riding locations to choose from with various wind directions & conditions. This makes the island particularly attractive for kiteboarding / kitesurfing enthusiasts. St Croix kiteboarding wind conditions average between 15 to 20 knots during the summer, ensuring a solid ride, and the winter season offers favorable conditions as well.
If you’re really crazy, you can even kiteboard during our fall season, when the Caribbean tropical storms offering “enhanced” wind and wave conditions bound to excite even the most adventurous. St Croix kitesurfing & kiteboarding experts are even know to chase hurricane winds for a thrill!
