- HOW TO GO
Kiteboarding / Kitesurfing in Jabberwock Beach, Antigua, Antigua & Barbuda
Jabberwock Beach is one of the first beaches in Antigua, where kite-surfing was introduced. In comparison with the south-eastern beaches of Antigua, waters in Jabberwock Beach tend to be a little rougher.
The north-east winds that Jabberwock Beach receives, makes it a great place for kitesurfing. The wind blows side-on which is ideal for those who are experienced and want to take their riding to the next level. As for those who want to learn how to kite, these wind conditions are ideal, too. The more advanced riders can really have fun when the wind is from the north.
The best period to enjoy kite-surfing at Jabberwock Beach is between December and March, when the wind can blow at up to 20 knots and stronger. Also, there is a similar rise during June and July. Out of season, the winds tend to be less strong, usually between 10 and 15 knots, perhaps better for inexperienced kite-surfers. The water temperature averages from 23°C (73.4°F) in winter to 26°C (78.8°F) in summer.
The water create mostly bump and jump conditions, perfect for launching in the air. However, on either end of the beach, the waters are calmer. This is where the experienced ones could make perfect wake-style tricks.
