Sorry for not seeing this for so long. Welcome to the world of kiteboarding!
Some good places to kite would be Dog Beach in Nahant or Revere, most days you see people kiting there. Pleasure Bay we say is for advanced riders only, it’s offshore riding and can get very busy in the summer, but a little more manageable in the Fall. I 100% always recommend you show up at any beach first and talk to the locals, especially PBay. They can give you the lowdown, and don’t be bashful to tell them your real skill level. They may just keep an extra eye on you, or tell you when you really shouldn’t be kiting in certain places or conditions. No one is territorial or anything like that. If someone says “don’t kite here cause of …..” then listen to them. We have a groupme thread with a lot of people on it, if you haven’t already been added, send an email with your phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org and we can add you. Maybe you’ve been kiting this past month, but we will see you on the beach soon enough!

I started kiting earlier in the year and am looking for some suggestions for places to kite in the Boston area.
I took the 8 hour beginner kiting course in Panama back in February and just did another 3 hours of lessons in Croatia. I’m able to get upwind but still need to work on doing it consistently as well as work on standing transitions. My IKO certification level is Kiteboarder level 3L by the way.
I just purchased a 12m kite, bar, harness, board, and wetsuit and am looking for suggestions for where to kite. Pleasure Bay seems to be the preferred spot in the area. Do you think I am qualified to kite here? Is there somewhere else you’d recommend? I don’t know any other kiters in the area and would be down to buy someone a beer if they’re willing to help me launch and give me the lowdown on kiting in the area.
Any other suggestions?
