Map of the Charleston Kite and Wing Foil Spots

Map of the Charleston Kite and Wing Foil Spots

The all-knowing Charleston area map, find the spot to go in any given wind direction, and check out our new and improved kiteboarding map! We're incredibly fortunate to have many places to kite, so let's keep it that way by always staying safe, being aware of people and obstacles, and leaving no trace on the beaches. Feel free to give us a call or stop by the shop to talk about the current conditions, where to go, and anything else we can do to help. We're always happy to help our fellow kiters choose the best place to go kite and the best gear to ride with at each spot. Don't forget to Enjoy the elements and ride with FORCE!

Some local rules that we want to make you aware of so that we are all respectful and safe.
