Kiteboarding the 520 Slick in Cocoa Beach, FL
Kiteboarding Kelly Park: Cocoa Beach
Information for Kiteboarding Cocoa Beach:
Kelley Park: This spot is good on summer days when the Seabreeze kicks in. It can blow about 5 mph more here than on the beach! The windsurfers here are NOT always friendly to kiteboarders. The concession here does not tolerate Kitesurfing well and will call the police on you. This spot is NOT recommended for kiteboarding. If you do decide you have to kite here, go later in the afternoon when the windsurfing shop is closed and be respectful!!! The beach area is very small and not the best spot to launch. There is a field behind the parking lot which offers an open area to setup and launch. It can be gusty and you must walk with your kite through the parking lot and trees to get to the water. Again, this spot is NOT recommended. You can launch a boat here and go out to the flats just South to launch. This is a good area to ride but is difficult to get to when the wind is light without a boat.
PRECAUTIONS: Advanced or PRO level riding ONLY without boat assistance. This spot has a very technical launch. It usually good when there is an Onshore wind which means you will be pulled into the buildings and trees if something goes wrong! Watch out for windsurfers and other spectators. Avoid this spot if possible.
Wind Directions: Good for SE
