Duxbury Beach is a large area with a few different places to kite. The oceanside can be kited with East winds and can get some swell. Most people kite at the High Pines area, which you need a sticker to get to. This area is a large bay with a muddy/silty bottom that can be ridden in many directions. It is a nice place to kite that mostly locals go to because of the expensive parking sticker price.
<p>Please buy a parking sticker to help support the local beach staff. VERY limited free parking. Parking in the main lot is $10.<br /> Stickers:<br /> Residents $150<br /> Non-residents $275</p>
<p>Duxbury Beach is at the end of Powder Point Ave. Got down the dirt road to the right over a mile to the High Pines area. You need a town permit to get there.</p>
<p>The best places to launch are on the ocean side (winds with East in them) or by the High Pines area, which is about a mile south of the Powder Point bridge (for SW winds). This location requires a Town of Duxbury sticker for year round access. Please respect this rule and buy a sticker if you plan on kiting here.</p> <div>DO NOT launch where windsurfers do on the Duxbury side of the Powder Point Bridge.</div> <div> </div> <div>Please do not kite from the far side of the Powder Point bridge. As appealing as it may be, you are too close to other people, the parking lot, and the bridge... too much can go wrong.</div>

The Powder Point bridge. There are many sharp clams in the bay that can cut your feet. Kiting in West and NW winds in the bay is dangerous.
