Walking distance to spot

The kite spot is for advanced riders, as it is necessary to ride upwind 80m in order to reach the kiting area. Riders are required to stay outside the swimming area which is indicated with yellow markers. The bay is 1.5 miles wide offering flat water, chop and swell. The flat water and waves can be found close to Green Cay Island. During high season, this area can get crowded with jet skis, boats and parasails. The launching area is located between Kakao and Bikini Beach. The waters are crystal clear with sea turtles and rays playing close to Marine Park. The wind is consistent year round with an average of 13-18 knots. A quiver of 10m and 14m would be perfect for the conditions. The water is warm with no wetsuit needed, though a rash guard for sun protection is necessary. The conditions are perfect for all riding type. Enjoy flat water in the lagoon, wave riding at the reef, long swell in the bay and deep water for foiling.

The Destination

St Martin is known for its dry climate and sunny weather. Because of the weather, the wind conditions are consistent year round. With crystal clear and warm waters, the ocean is an amazing playground for everyone! The island is half Dutch and half French offering a wonderful multi-cultural atmosphere. Enjoy the French cuisine and duty free shops on the French side and bustling nightlife and casinos on the Dutch side. Unlike most kiteboarding destinations, the wind is consistent around 13-18 knots the whole year. Morning is always the best time to ride until about 11am, and picks up again around 3pm each day. The spot offers conditions for all riding types: flat water in the lagoon, wave riding on the reef, long swell outside the bay and deep water for foil boarding.

The Experience

St Martin is a small island making it easy to organise last minute activities. Take an evening off kiteboarding and enjoy the other activities the island has to offer.

Explore the water and wildlife in other ways including hobie cat rentals, sea kayaking, snorkelling around Orient Bay, surfing, SUP or take a boat excursion to Anguilla, St Barthelemy.

Visit the landscapes, historic sites and traditional buildings on a hiking tour, bike ride, quad bike tour or on horseback. Explore the mountain trails and visit the butterfly farm or the Loterie Farm.

Markets and duty free shopping are a popular attractions in Marigot and Philipsburg.
