Il You GO there on May, You know what you are doing because the water is cold.

Here are the few I limit myself to:

Long beach Bridgeport airport pretty much a 360deg spot
Short beach for E-SE
Walnu beach in Milford for SW-S-SE, I may have the directions wrong here.
Hamonnassett park further North

In any case, there is always a place to rig and launch, avoid to do it on the main beach. You ALWAYS have to drive further than what looks like the beach access.
Long beach, you drive to the far end, walnut to the far left on the dirt road, Hammonasseet spot is to the very end also....don't f*** up with the access, I don't live there but love kiting there during business trips. Bring 14-10 and 7 and you will kite for sure. You can lookup Bridgeport airport for forecasts and current wind....

Hi kiters Jim here residing in CT Westbrook area. Please add me to your WhatsApp group. I no longer enjoy kiting alone and its not really the safe or sane thing to do.

My number is 860-662-9400 looking for like minded kiters who can hit me up when the wind is up and want to go out to kite!

Thanks!
