Kitespot(s) Overview: The warm trade winds blow in Antigua December through August. The beach is over a quarter-mile long with a gentle curve and side-on wind conditions that offer a safe cove for learners and some ‘bump and jump’ conditions further upwind for the more experienced riders. With lots of beach space for practicing the ever-important skills of rigging, launching, and landing your kites, Jabberwock Beach is the safest and most comfortable beach on the island to learn to kite.
Best beginner spot(s) in the area: Jabberwock Beach.
Best wave spot(s) in the area: none.
Downwinders: Yes, from Guiana island back to Jabberwock. You have to charter a boat to take you out.
Significant wind patterns: Steady trade winds throughout the winter.
After-kite drinks or other notable bars & restaurants: Falmouth harbor is where all the nightlife is. Best bars and restaurants on the island!
