Re: Kiting on Big Island??
- I just returned from a month on the Big Island. There are a couple of
great spots (Both on the Kona side).
Anaehoomalu Bay (called "A-Bay")
and Keholo Bay, which is about 3 miles towards the Airport. Keholo is
a bit trickier to find, since it is essentially an unmarked road off
of the main highway. Closest roadmark to the access road is a "Scenic
lookout" turnout as you drive South toward Kona Airport from A-Bay.
Local kiters are super mellow. You'll probably want to bring a larger
kite, since the winds are thermal winds, not trade winds. I rode a
Wipika 11.8. Most people were riding 12's and up.
