Gulfport is the second biggest city in the state of Mississippi. It was founded by William H. Hardy and Joseph T. Jones, who widened the harbor in Gulfport and opened the channel to the sea. In 1902 the harbor became a working seaport that nowadays brings millions of dollars in the Mississippi state. Due to its long, white sand beaches along the Gulf of Mexico and its Coast Casinos, Gulfport is a great tourism destination.
- ABOUT THE SPOT
Kiteboarding / Kitesurfing in Dunnet Bay, Caithness, Highlands and Islands United Kingdom
Dunnet Bay is a magnificent 3.2 km/2 mi beach, laid next to Castletown town. This is a famous destination in Northern Scotland. When weather condition is right, the spot can produce one of the best kite surfing experience in UK, with a 150 days duration per year! The best period for visiting is from April to October, but be aware that during summer, it can get very busy and that could ruin you day.
The beach is formed by white sand and that gives a more exotic feeling. But don’t get overexcited, as at low tide rocks are rising from the sea, so be careful. Wind is usually blowing from the south, but if you want to have a good surfing day, then always check the forecast and try to visit while it is north-northwesterly. At that time, you can start working your surf at less than 1 m/3 ft going right to 2.5 m/8 ft. The waves tend to be both left and right beach breakers, being hollow and not too fast. That’s great news for beginners, given that the spot can give a 300 m/984 ft long riding distance.
Dunnet bay is an organized beach with public toilets and many picnic kiosks, if you are family visiting. You can also meet a visitor information center and many restaurants and hotels around the area and in Castletown city.
