Ocean Springs is placed on the wonderful Mississippi Gulf Coast, on the eastern shore of Biloxi Bay. Its historic center is full of streets lined by oak trees and parks. It also has many ethnic restaurants, not common in neighboring communities. But most of all, it is full of picturesque beaches!

The Mississippi Gulf Coast has a 42 km / 26 mi of beach front, full of Kiteboarding launches. The most popular launch in Ocean Springs is that of East Beach. Due to the venturi effect, the wind is usually a bit stronger than on the front beach, but still ideal for kiteboarding across the bay to Deer Island and back. East Beach is the ideal spot to practice your kiting skills, when the wind is southeast, as it funnels up between Deer Island and the land.

Suitable for freestyle and freeride, East Beach allows all skill level kiteboarders to enjoy its waters, but due to its popularity, you may find it difficult to park, as the parking is a bit limited. This sand beach is a bit narrow, but gives you the opportunity to perform all the tricks and aerials that will remunerate you.

Remember to always check the wind forecast, as N, NE and NW winds are not suitable for kiting, since they are offshore winds. You will enjoy your kiting though, when the wind is SE or S, SW. East Beach is suitable for all year round kiting. So don’t wait, take your kite, your board and glide on those sea waters!!!
