Gulfport, founded by William H. Hardy and Joseph T. Jones, is the second largest city in Mississippi. It is a colorful beachfront city on the Gulf of Mexico with beautiful, long, white sand beaches and a strong commercial center. It offers several opportunities for shopping, as well as golfing, gambling and water sports.

Courthouse Road beach is the perfect spot to take advantage of the wind and glide on the waters of the Gulf coast, while kitesurfing. Fun, thrill and excitement are some of the feelings you will experience, while exercising your body –as it combines surfing, windsurfing, paragliding, wakeboarding and gymnastics– and setting your mind free.

When choosing a beach for kitesurfing, there are some specific features that need to be taken into consideration. A  long, shallow-watered shoreline like Courthouse Road beach is ideal and of course suitable for beginner, intermediate or advanced kitesurfers. Wind directions are also important and luckily, the wind conditions in Gulfport are ideal for kitesurfing all year round.

Since Courthouse Road beach isn’t the most popular spot for swimmers, it can be the spot you are looking for, if you want to develop your skills or want to try different kind of styles. Get ready to get wet and try Freeride, Freestyle, of course Jumping and all kind of tricks and aerials!!!
