Kitesurfing is a thrilling sport that combines aspects of traditional surfing with wakeboarding and windsurfing. You’ll glide along the water on a board carefully sized for your physique, while propelled along the surf by a kite. St. Lucia is one of the best places in the world for the sport, with many compelling reasons for you to consider a visit.

Prime Kitesurfing Conditions

St. Lucia is among the smaller Caribbean islands, offering a secluded feeling that you can’t find in many larger destinations. Its mild climate offers comfortable temperatures year-round, with average highs between 29 and 31 degrees Celsius and lows that range from 23 to 25 degrees. The rainy season lasts from July to November, coming to an end just as peak kitesurfing season begins.

The best time for kitesurfing in St. Lucia is between November and July. Air temperatures are between 27 and 33 degrees Celsius while water temperatures hover between 25 and 27 degrees. The Atlantic side of the island enjoys strong trade winds that make for ideal kitesurfing conditions.
