The Kitesurfing Spot In Grand Cayman
Most of the kitesurfing takes place along the southeast coast of Grand Cayman where the wind blows cross onshore. The area is made up on a 5 mile lagoon which is waist deep up to 100 metres offshore, where the water reaches 5 metres in depth, which then returns to waist deep a few hundred metres further out. This sand bar is an incredibly easy and safe place to learn how to kitesurf. There are no obstacles, and with such a large kiting area, other kiters have enough space to keep out of your way.
There is a reef 1 mile off shore, which follows the kiting area the whole way around. Outside the reef are waves which break over the reef and are great for advanced kiters, and as an introduction to waves for intermediates. The whole of the lagoon inside the reef is flat.
Due to the curved shape of the coast, the wind stays cross-on the whole way.
