Comments on Kiteboarding British Virgin Islands

Postby jonb » Tue Mar 28, 2006 8:52 pm

Does anybody have experience with kiting at various locations in the BVI.
Specifically on Tortola or Virgin Gorda. In know Windreels Vol 1 has a piece filmed in the North Sound on Virgin Gorda that looked sweet.
Does anyone have experience with other areas?
Ie south of the Valley on Virgin Gorda or Long Bay Resort on Tortola.

I know the only way to really see those islands is to charter a boat. Im in the process of researching charter groups and prices now. I have found some for the southern Caribbean but non for BVI yet. I will keep you posted. :cry:

I saw a slingshot sponsored video that was on OLN and they went down there, they chartered from The Moorings, who has bareboats and captained boats, and all sorts of fancy shit. the guys on the video were flying machines the whole time it seemed, 17+ m. I would love to make it down there one day too, the color of the water is incredible.

Charter for BVI's

Postby Kite Brazil » Wed May 03, 2006 5:51 am

There is a really nice 41' Catamaran that sails all the Virgin Islands - her name is Quicksilver (no relation to the clothing + company).

The couple who own/charter her are very nice, very fun and even have a kite onboard.

Yacht charters are pricey, but can be an amazing way to spend a kite holiday! This may be just what you are looking for!
