KITEBOARDING

KITEBOARDING

As one of the Caribbean’s most alluring islands and blessed with an abundance of beaches, Antigua offers great kiteboarding opportunities. Jabberwock Bay, for instance, is a beautiful National Park on the North Coast, and renowned amongst kiters. Whatever your level, the sandy, shallow areas which drop off into deeper waters make it a prime destination for guests to perfect their techniques. There are also a few flat areas for “wakestyle” tricks, where there is a 60-foot A-frame slider and a kicker. With favorable wind, water and sand conditions, this is a great place to bump, jump and ride the waves.
