Huntington Beach is 3 miles Southeast of Sunset Beach. Here are
larger waves and surf. You need the ability to go upwind and ride
in the shore break. Most intermediate riders launch and ride between
lifeguard towers 12
and 18 North of the pier. Advanced riders are between towers 8 &
12. The cliffs area has a small beach
so launching and landing here is not recommended. Riding South of the
pier is not
permitted. The North beach segment is about 2 miles long. Winds
generally drop off fairly
rapidly once South of
Huntington Beach. Click here for the local kitesurfing rules.
