Parrish Park is a great place to ride if the wind is right. The launch spot is the beach area on the other side of the bridge. You can ride here in almost any wind direction except for NW which is strait onshore. It tends to be gusty here if the wind is below 15mph or anything out of the west. It is best on a strong SE wind which is offshore. The river is about waist to chest deep depending on the tides. Also, you need to stay well east of the island for the shallow water if you need to walk. The images show the shallow area in green, deep in red, and launch in blue.
The only time i have trouble with the launch is on SE winds since the wind is coming over the road. The best thing to do on SE winds it to water launch.
There are only a few kiters that ride here and I have never been there when there too many riders. It can get crowded in the summer with jetskis and people fishing.
Also, bring water shoes because there is some funky stuff out there!
