Since moving to Toronto last August, I haven't gone kiteboarding - I don't know the kite spots here and I'm not confident on my own. Hoping to take a kiteboard vacation in the next couple of months (July or August) and wanted to get your advice. Where would you recommend I go?
My considerations are:
- Consistent wind
- Safety (need a place with a good community of kiteboarders in case I get in trouble kiting)
- Affordable accommodation/food
- Accessibility (would be nice to go somewhere you can get to by mass transit)
I'm a low intermediate kiteboarder - can ride upwind both ways and be independent in moderate winds, but I've needed rescues before. (The place I used to kite at, Squamish, has a "rescue" service where they'll pick you up in a jetski as part of your dues. Once my kite went into a death spiral; another time I went out underpowered and needed a rescue from bozo beach). Maybe somewhere safe like Squamish would be the best place... but any other thoughts on comparably safe destinations? Cape Hatteras? Anywhere else on the east coast?
