Join the Nantucket Kiteboarding Mailing List (we never really send anything out).
Summer is here and Pocomo is firing on a regular basis. If you are launching at Pocomo please be respectful of these regulations: (in effect for July and August)
1. Always launch and land at the end of the point.
2. The Harbor Master will place two bouys in the water off of Pocomo Point. These will create an invisible line that kiteboarders will not ride inside of. This is intended to create a "No Kite Zone" inside the point in the area which is commonly known as the swimming area.
3. Other than launching and landing Kiteboarders will not ride near Pocomo Point.
As recently as 2005 Kiteboarding was banned at Pocomo Point. This is the website from that time period that discusses the issue of Pocomo Point.
If you have visited before and just want to see what's new, these are the most recently uploaded photos. If you like sailing the ocean here are some great photos of how it can get on Nantucket. These are the second gallery those Madequecham Ocean Photos by Josh Harde..
