Saint-Martin: your ultimate kitesurfing experience!

Who never dreamed of itKitesurfing in warm turquoise water? The kind of scenery you see in travel magazines, where people are reveling in paradise, holding their kite in their left hand and a coconut cocktail in their right. Well, we have wonderful news for you, that unattainable dream is really easy to achieve!

And of course the goal is...Saint Martin!

Saint-Martin is still not the best known Caribbean island for kitesurfing, but its reputation in this matter is not fairly judged. Which is great for us as we can ride alone in perfect spots most of the time ;)

We havemany stainsavailable with different properties, for exampleall tastes and all levels. Flat water in a crystalline lagoon, open sea area, waves... choose and we have it!


Warm water, crystalline sea, sunny days, gentle wind, ideal orientation: St. Martin has it all.

Most of the time all famous world kitesurfing peaks are the places where you can find a thermal wind that comes up at the same time every day and subsides in the afternoon. It's really comforting to trust a good wind when you go on a kitesurfing trip... And that's why they are so popular.

But being famous doesn't always mean being great!

Saint-Martin doesn't have that kind of wind. But during the winter period (December to April), which is also our high tourist season, strong winds are part of everyday life in Saint-Martin.

Average wind strength during this time is between 15 and 18 knots. The months of April and May are usually calm and the wind tends to return to the island regularly in July and August.

Kitesurfing in St. Martin with the perfect gear, in the perfect size.

You might be wondering what size kite to take or rent for your kitesurfing holiday in Saint-Martin.

In and around Saint-Martin we use the same kite size all year round. The size of the kite used depends on the most important:

  • Your weight
  • the force of the wind

In our "friendly island" wind speed doesn't change much. Regularly

  • Females use a kite size between 7 meters square and 9 meters square.
  • Males, on the other hand, use a kite size between 10 and 12 square meters.



Below you'll find all the reasons why St Martin should be at the top of your kitesurfing destination list.

1. Hot weather

The average air temperature is between 25 and 30 degrees (Celsius) throughout the year. Forget coats, long-sleeved shirts, pants... you can only pack t-shirts, shorts and bikinis; That's all you need here! And like the Caribbean Sea, well... get ready! Our beautiful sea temperature is between 25 and 28 degrees Celsius, which makes kitesurfing quite comfortable with shorts for you and light bikinis for you girls 👙

In Saint-Martin we don't share our place with hundreds of kitesurfers, only with the picturesque underwater world.
