Kite Boarding

Kiting in Ecuador

The kite boarding season in Ecuador is from May – December. With winds around the 14-20 knot range consistently through that time. If you mix that with the wave season which runs from October thru April you’ll get an amazing variety of riding in from flat water to waves and everything in between.

The main kite beach in Ecuador is called Santa Marianita. This beach 5 km long and the wind is always cross shore – onshore every day. At the south end of the beach there is a river mouth that has created long lefts and fast rights with a few outer breaks that make for some fun riding. The flat water in this shallow area also makes for some fun riding. 20 km down winders from Santa Marianita to Manta are a great way to add some variety to your trip.

Ecuador is a great location for kiting for both beginners all the way through to advanced riders. Drop us a line and we’ll be more than happy to give you information on a custom kite boarding trip to Ecuador.
