Is your area a good place to retire?
I would think so..
....i am not retired..work part-time..off by 3pm...able to catch all late afternoon sessions
Not a windy place by all means but you can ride in all the wind directions possible if desired
Barrier island with intra-coastal rivers..we are the last ones at beach to feel effect of thunderstorms
Big kites 17 and up are a must if you are addicted otherwise you will ride only half the time
We are about the same age....glad you are thinking of retiring
We have nice waves here...not big...but quality and consistent in the range of 2-4 ft
It is mostly a surfing town....no big crowds of kitesurfers in the ocean....less than a dozen of us
Many more go kiteboarding in the nearby river because they haven't learned surfboard yethttps://maps.google.com/maps?q=5th+stre
Zoom out and see where i am in relation to Orlando Fl
Thanks. Still at least five years off, starting to consider a location that might be acceptable to my wife and allow for more days on the water.
