KITEBOARDING IN COSTA RICA
Kiteboarding Salinas Bay
The best spot to kiteboard in Costa Rica and Central America is Salinas bay. Situated north-west of Costa Rica and just a few miles from the Nicaraguan border. Thanks to its proximity to Nicaragua Volcano and lake , this bay gets consistent strong winds form November to May. The wind is almost warranted during those months with an average of 95% windy days.
Kiteboarding is not so popular among locals although it is growing little by little, that is why the beach is not crowded as other spots. At Salinas bay we will found a maximum of 20-25 kiters in the water, so we do not have to worry about other riders.
Something different about this spot is Bolaños island. It ir right in the middle of the bay. It is a rocky island with clear turquoise water, you can find many riders there enjoying its nature and flat water.
The most used kites are 7-8m. Our kiteboarding school (Costa Kite), normally teaches beginners with 5m, so that they feel safer.
