Orient Bay (or Baie Orientale in French) is the longest beach of the french side of St Maarten. There, you have a wide space to kitesurf.

Wind:

This spot offer a constant wind cause of the exposition east. You can find on the right of the spot a reef where you can find some good waves easy to surf. Take care as you are downwind from Green Caye (small island in the middle of the bay) there is a small area where the wind could be gusty. Just don’t forget to cross it with a hight kite and don’t stop it ;)

Highlights:

  • Down wind from this reef you can work on your best tricks cause of flat and turquoise water, between turtles and stingrays.
  • The remaining area (the biggest one) is usually choppy but you got a big space for long ride and freeriding.
