Default West Winds in East Central Florida

Someone was traveling to Titusville and wondered about launches for west winds.


You should checkout Laithman's site for Brevard County, FL kiteboarding. He has a number of Sat. images of various launch areas in the Melbourne area at:

Regarding travel from Melbourne to Miami, here is what mapquest.com has to say about it:

You should look into the forecast for the next few days as the wind has been off lately, as is typical for this time of year at:

The Intracoastal is very wide up that way. You should be able to find a useable launch for west winds (NOT KELLY PARK! - A SPOT KITEBOARDERS NEED TO AVOID). Also, be sure to WATCH OUT for the squalls. They are pumping through regularly on a daily basis right now.

Have fun,
