4 Best Winter Kiteboarding / Cable Crossover Destinations

Nov 17, 2011

Author: Brian Wheeler

Planning a winter kiteboarding getaway and wanting to be close to some amazing cable crossover locations? Here are four of the best. Be sure to check out the Cable Crossover feature in the Fall issue of SBC Kiteboard magazine.

Central Florida has a lot to offer on the cable front: a clockwise spinning cable, some of the best obstacles on the planet, plenty of two-tower cableways and countless pro wakeboarders who call it home. The fl atwater kiting on the east and west coasts can be sick, too.
Kiting Spots: St. Petersburg/Cocoa Beach/Titusville
Cable Parks: McCormick’s Cable Park, Orlando Watersports Complex, The Projects (two-tower cables only)

Home to North America’s oldest cableway and one of the best fi ve-tower setups in the States, Southern Florida also features a diversity of great winter kiting.
Kiting Spots: Miami/Del Rey/Jupiter/Sanibel/Ft. Myers
Cable Parks: Revolution Cable Park, Ski Rixen

South Padre Island and Corpus Christi may be Texas’ kiteboarding meccas, but the Houston area offers kiting too, along with cable parks.
Kiting Spots: Houston/Galveston/Corpus Christi
Cable Parks: Wake Nation Houston, M2 Sports (two-tower cable only), Oasis of the Woodlands (opening summer 2012, according to their website).

One of the most famous cable parks in the world, Camsur Watersports Complex (CWC) is ridiculously epic. The kiting in the boat lake isn’t nearly as stellar, but there are kiting alternatives within a couple hours, plus Boracay. Don’t miss Wind Or No Wind at CWC coming this December.
Kiting Spots: Boracay/Camsur Vicinity
Cable Park: CWC
