For kiteboarding Ontario offers locations within a few hours drive to take advantage of the windiest spots. People living in the heavily populated of Toronto also have a couple of good launch spots right in the city.
Below I will describe some of the launch locations in each major area.
Greater Toronto Area (Lake Ontario)
Ashbridges Bay - When its not too busy with other beach users, check out this location on the Martin Goodman trail, near Woodbine pool. This place works well on E to NE winds but isn't a good place to kite during peak summer season months on busy warm days.
Wasaga Beach – Wasaga is a popular beachgoers location in Ontario. It is located on Georgian Bay off of Lake Huron. Recognized kiting beaches are Allenwood Beach and Beach 5 and 6. Allenwood Beach is at the north end of Wasaga Beach - the longest freshwater beach in the world. Here you'll find more than 20 km of sand. Beach 6 is the best beginner area of the many kiteboarding Ontario locations.
Sauble Beach - Both Sauble and Oliphant Beaches are located west of Wasgaga on South Bruce peninsula on Lake Huron. Here kiters enjoy more reliable winds in Sauble than Wasaga. Sauble Beach is considered one of the best riding spots around.
Keswick - Located on Cooks Bay in Lake Simcoe is about 60 km from Toronto. The water here can be flat or choppy. It is a little less busy than other Ontario kiteboarding locations so can be frequented in summer months.
Rondeau - This Lake Erie location is near Chatham and is very good with South/Southwest wind that funnels through the opening of the bay. Other wind directions can work here as well but its a tricky launch so make sure you are not here alone. Other Lake Erie locations include Long Beach and Sandbanks.
