Description of Corpus Christi Bay (United States Of America)

Corpus Christi is one of the best kitesurfing locations in the US. It actually includes several spots around the huge bay, where you can find the most suitable for your riding style, and it is probably the windiest kite area in the country, according to wind average statistics. Among the countless launching points, the best known are Wildcat Park Portland, probably the windiest one, Grassy Point Corpus Christi with its flatwater channels, and Oso Bay a flatwater spot behind a long sandbank. Another great plus consists in the fact that most of the kite spots around the area are completely uncrowded and often you can find yourself in the water with no more than 5-6 kiters.
