Best Kiteboarding, March 2005
 
When we’re hanging out by the Granada boat launch in Long Beach, they’re tough to miss: People in wet suits being yanked across the water by enormous half-moon kites. The bane of true surfers—and some windsurfers—kiteboarders descend regularly on balmy Belmont Shore. Many sites, including County Line, Topanga, and Cabrillo, are limited to advanced riders because of rocky shorelines, gusty winds, and city restrictions. One of the few areas in Southern California suitable for beginners, Belmont boasts smooth waters, two large takeoff areas, and a share-the-beach philosophy not seen at a whole lot of traditional surfing spots. » Park at E. Ocean Blvd. near Granada Ave. and walk down the beach.
