Kiteboarding lessons Kelowna

June 28, 2019

On the Okanagan Lake in the Okanagan Valley in the southern interior of British Columbia, Canada you can find a city called Kelowna. The name Kelowna comes from an Okanagan language term for "grizzly bear".
The population of Kelowna consisted of 127,380 individuals of which how many took kiteboarding lessons Kelowna we are not sure.





Local kiteboarders of which probably a fair few took kiteboarding lessons Kelowna prefer southwesterly, onshore breezes in the 12 to18 knot range. These are often found off Rotary Beach. With a strong northerly breeze blowing, most of them prefer to sail off Manhattan Point near the lighthouse. Many of the local kiteboarders used to be windsurfers looking for a bigger adrenaline rush! If you come down to Rotary Beach on a windy day you can enjoy watching talented sailors launch themselves high into the sky.

Kelowna is one of the best kiting spots you can find on a good SW wind. At times you can get great wind swell up to 6ft high and great lift in the wind. On other days it can get quite a bit choppy as well through.
Launching and landing at the south end of Rotary beach can be quite sketchy so make sure you come and take kiteboarding lessons Kelowna if you are not quite confident enough.
Make sure you stay away from the two trees which are called ‘the trees of death’ by the locals and have claimed numerous kites.
Having powerlines directly downwind only about 20 feet away from the parking lot doesn’t make the launch any easier.
If you are new to kiting this is probably not the place to go for you.
Stick to taking kiteboarding lessons Kelowna.
