USA 2024 – #01 Florida – Florida Keys kiting and Manatees

Mid March 2024 we went to Florida for two weeks.

We had the luck to join Jim Abernethy on one of his Tigershark and Hammerhead Liveaboards end of March for 8 days. Before we boarded the vessel we spent 6 days in Florida. Back at home we decided to take our kite gear with us and hoped for nice winds.

Luckily we had some great days of wind down at the Keys. The best spot for kiting for us was Curry Hammock State Park. We had 4 out of 5 days of wind, which is amazing.

Kite setup we took with us: Duotone Dice 9 and 12

One day in between we drove all the way up to Crystal River to snorkel with Manatees. In the afternoon before we tried to kite at a place called Tiger Tail Beach at Marco Island. For me it worked more or less good. Kerstin had enough wind.

Back again at Curry Hammock for more epic kiting!
