The Spit

The Spit is the main launching and landing zone for kiteboarding in Squamish. The wind blows offshore so it is important that you are able to ride upwind, retrieve your board if you lose it and do a self rescue in the water before you choose to ride here alone. The Spit has a day use fee or annual fee to use as well as a rescue service that is operational from May 15th to September 15th annually

Nexen Beach

Nexen Beach is the secondary launch spot in Squamish. It is not maintained by any organization so there is no usage fee but there are added dangers. Nexen beach is located on the downwind side of the sound so it has on-shore wind conditions. As it is located at the very bottom of the sound, on lighter wind days, the wind does not always fill in completely. Nexen (Newport) Beach is also currently being revamped and rennovated so there will be several construction projects on the go for the next several years. Due to the on-shore wind conditions and many obstacles in the water, this is an advanced riding spot
