During the season there is only 1 launch point Memorial Day to Labor Day which is located towards the end of the beach at the jetty. Off-season kitesurfers may launch anywhere West of Chair 11 but not East of it. The windsurfing area is at Chair 9. During peak season respect other beach goers as crowds can become large. Kites are not to mix with beach goers and the town has thankfully given us our own area. During the off season when the beaches are empty you can get away with launching in other areas. When the plovers are there the parking lot will have concrete blocks to keep cars from driving out all the way to the Jetty and launch. You must park and walk as the Jetty is the only place we are allowed to be.
If you cannot launch and land from this small spot by Jetty, stay up wind, and not ever bring your kite back to land away from the land zone then Don’t kite at West Dennis Beach.
You can cross the channel outside the river, just be careful as there can be boat traffic.
The “pond” is off limits from Memorial Day to Labor Day
During the summer, if you end up downwind either keep going to South Village or self rescue. To recap you CANNOT have your kite in the air on the beach except at the launch spot during plovers season. Yes their are wildlife folks paid to sit in the dunes and watch.
Also during the weekend the launch area can become overly crowded with kiters so make sure you wrap your lines or fold up any extra kites you may have been using earlier in the day. The water is shallow so watch your landings if your jumping also please don’t jump closer than 100 feet from the shoreline. The River is out of Bounds as far as kiting goes. You can cross the channel outside the river, just be careful as there can be boat traffic do not stay in their marked lane. If you end up downwind either keep going to South Village or self rescue. To recap you CANNOT have your kite in the air on the beach except at the launch spot during plovers season. Yes a few beach goers are paid to sit in the dunes and watch!
