Belize boasts wind speeds of 15 to 25 knots throughout the year and is hailed a “flatwater paradise”, with the Great Barrier reef that lines its coast (a powerful natural wave breaker).
Add to this the warm waters of the Caribbean and shallow beaches, Belize is a kite surfer’s paradise.
Kite surfing, as you may know, is a water sport involving the use of wind to pull a rider across a body of water on a small surfboard. It’s a sport that has, for good reason you’ll soon find out, virtually taken over water recreation areas of the world’s most popular beaches.
Yet, the sparsely populated waters of Belize means beginners can focus on the basics of kite surfing, while experienced kite surfers have the enviable experience of owning the sea.
