Kitesurfing: it’s all the rage

17th Oct 2005

Kitesurfing has been called ‘the sport of the millennium’ due to its recent explosion in popularity, and Antigua is one of the best places to try it out.Kitesurfing is a new sport combining windsurfing, power kiting and wakeboarding in which a rider on a board controls a huge kite so that they are pulled along the water and into the air.

The most popular location in Antigua for the sport is Jabberwock beach on the north coast, with near-perfect conditions of cross-onshore winds, a long sandy beach and clear shallow water.

It is also home to Kite Antigua, a dedicated kitesurfing school, which offers tuition and equipment rental for everyone from complete beginners to advanced levels.
