Kiteboarding Season in Tampa Bay

Kiteboarding Season in Tampa Bay

Tampa Bay, Florida may technically have four seasons, but if you ask any local if they agree with that, they will likely laugh and tell you no! Floridians claim there are really only two seasons per year; hot and not so hot. Well, we’re here to elaborate on these “seasons” and highlight exactly what each time of year brings. 

The main time of year that we love is the “Kiteboarding Season”, which is October through May. Why is this? During the summertime (June-September; the exceptionally hot months), the wind thermals die off causing a lack of a steady/predictable breeze coming through Tampa Bay. So, as local, Tampa Bay Kiteboarders, we live for those cooler, windier months.
