To come up with the list of locations for TKB’s first travel guide we reached out to a long list of professional kiteboarders and industry leaders and asked them for recommendations of where to go. While many of their suggestions were spots we had heard of, some were totally off our radar and we were excited to learn about the potential of new kiteboarding travel destinations. The result is a collection of locations to satisfy any type of kiteboarder no matter what they are looking for on their next vacation.


The spots in this guide are organized into Beginner, Luxury, Budget, Waves, Family, and Flat Water locations. This special issue features in depth information about these 30 destinations whose conditions are best during the fall and/or winter months.
