Sunny Skies & Warm Breezes Hug Destin

With the sun shining brightly and winds blowing warm breezes on Destin and South Walton beaches, it's an ideal time to be outdoors.  Those with an adventurous side may want to take advantage of these prime conditions by trying one of Destin's most adventurous wind sports--Kiteboarding.

Kiteboarding or kitesurfing allows you to harness the power of the wind with a large kite that propels your board across the water. The sport has been described as a combination of wakeboarding, windsurfing, surfing and paragliding to create one extreme sport.

There are several outfitters in the area. Conveniently located at HarborWalk Village in Destin, Kitty Hawk Kites offers kiteboarding as well as other wind adventures, including hang gliding and parasailing. Call 850-837-2800 or visit to learn more.

XLKites in Fort Walton Beach offers hourly individual or 1/2 day group lessons on the latest equipment. Instructors will tailor a lesson to meet your needs and all gear is provided. Call at 850-243-5483 or visit to learn more.

For the less adventurous, Kitty Hawk also features a wide selection of hand held nylon kites in many shapes and sizes for kite flying fun on the beach.

Let's go fly a kite!
