KITESPOTS - A BEACH GUIDE

Blekinge has several beaches to kitesurf from all year round.It is the direction of the wind that determines which beach or spot you choose to kite on. When you attend a kite course with us you will learn how to choose a kite beach and get to know your local beaches.

KITESURFING BEACHES

In Blekinge you can go kiting all year round, but in the summer the possibilities are expanded as we can take a boat out to any island in the fantastic archipelago. Blekinge has about 1000 islands in its wide archipelago! Below we list the most common places where we surf. For our full range of kite spots in Blekinge, go to our page kite map.
