Kitesurfing Near Downtown
When tropical storms hit Florida’s Gulf Coast, kitesurfing is practiced even during the otherwise non-windy summer season. However, these sudden winds tend to be unpredictable making it advisable to stick to kiteboarding spots closer to the shore.
Situated in a large park just fifteen minutes’ drive from the city centre, the popular Picnic Island Beach is a great kitesurfing spot with westerly winds. Cypress Point Park, located on the northwest side of Tampa, is where the local kiteboarding community likes to meet for after-work sessions.
