Kiteboarding New Brunswick -
a cultural Canadian kiting excursion.

Kiteboarding New Brunswick is growing in this beautiful part of Canada and new spots are being discovered all the time. The Northern tip of New Brunswick on the Acadian Peninsula, known better for its fishing industry, is the location of the Acadian Islands: Shippagan, Lamèque, and Miscou Island. These three small islands accessible by causeway form one of the best parts of New-Brunswick’s great kitesurfing spots, because you can safely kite on any wind and have your choice of wind or waves.

During the warm summer months of June, July August and September, the beautiful location of these islands is worth seeing and staying for your Canadian kiteboarding holiday. The islands are flat so the wind is unobstructed and smooth coming from any direction. Depending on your preference you can go easily to protected sand spit bays with smooth flat water or to more exposed areas where waves are available.

For Waves:
~Miscou Lighthouse: North and northeast winds.
~Plage Adrien Gionet: West to northwest winds.
~St-Marie-St-Raphael: East, southeast, south and southwest winds.

For Flat water:
-Pointe Canot, Petite Lamèque: West to northwest winds. Great flat water created by sand spits.
-Chiasson Office: Southeast, south and southwest winds.
-Pointe Campbell: East to northeast winds.

A kiteboarding school is located at Petite-Lamèque with kiteboarding packages available too. Campsites with full camping facilities are also available on these islands and are near many of the kiteboarding spots.

With the islands so flat and accessible, rigging is easy on grassy areas of kiteboarding New Brunswick in the Arcadian Islands. Most of the kiting areas for launching and landing are relatively safe too.

When the wind is off there are also plenty of things to keep you entertained - here's the start of the list:
Stand up paddleboarding (SUP), Sea Kayaking, Wakeboarding, Windsurfing, biking, cultural stuff, parties.
