Here is the layout of the parking area, and some common beachside courtesies when using the Sunshine Skyway Bridge launch site:
The best riding area and cleaner, stronger wind is located across the boat channel from the main launch. Experienced kiters who do not want to deal with the crowded conditions are encouraged to explore the vast grass flats. Beware of the boat channel- large boats, large fish, and strong currents. Fun rides include upwinders/ downwinders to Maximo Park, to East Beach at Ft. Desoto, or to Ten Penny Beach in Tierra Verde.
