Best Schools Premier Destination: Shippagan Club Wind & Kite- Canada
Club Wind & Kite
Welcome to Club Wind & Kite Kiteboarding School located in Shippagan and the Acadian Islands, New-Brunswick Canada.Home to New Brunswick’s largest fishing fleet, Shippagan and the Acadian Islands has its own culture based on the fishing industry. You’ll find the best fish market to get your daily seafood. People around are so nice, they’ll do anything
to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. Driving around, you’ll notice every spot is accessible. The variety of riding locations is incredible. The big must is Chiasson Office. This spot offers butter flat water conditions, even if the wind is blowing 25 knots. Kiting there is similar to wakeboarding on glassy conditions. This is one reason why you must plan a trip to the region.
Shippagan and the Acadian Islands is an archipelago of three islands (Shippagan, Lamèque and Miscou) located at the very north of New Brunswick. On the west shore of the islands is the Baie des Chaleurs, where the water gets warm during the summer. On the east shore is the vast Saint Lawrence Gulf, where you’ll find good waves. The islands are very close to each other, creating lagoons where you’ll find outstanding flat water spots on shallow bottom. Also, there are no hills around, so the wind is always constant.
Club Wind & Kite is the only complete Kiteboarding center in Canada. You can book packages which include your accommodation, lessons, gear, and no wind activities. The center is certified by IKO, the International Kiteboarding Organisation. Our teaching environment is amazing.
Depending on the wind directions, we teach at three different spots. Each spot is located on un-crowded nice beaches where the shallow bottom of the water makes it safe and easy to learn the basics of Kiteboarding. As there is not a mountain or hill in sight, the wind is totally constant, making this a prime spot to learn quickly!
