US, East Location, East Coast. Southern part of New Jersey. The barrier island of the Wildwoods. Wildwood Crest, Wildwood and North Wildwood. Parking at, right on street ends near entrance to beaches Restrictions, Power kiting and buggying are rare here,, only because no one knows about it,,,,, only myself and several others from surrounding states use the beach here. There is a beach curfew during the summer months from May till September from 10pm at night till 6am in the morning. from September to up to May the beach is mostly wide open and free to buggy and fly power kites. The city of Wildwood Crest does have a local ordinance stating that you cant fly kites from May to Sept however again I have not seen that enforced,,, if someone put bathers in danger of injury or such I could see that being inforced.. Have to use common sence and safety. You can not drive motorvehicles on the beach. During low tides there are excellent areas for riding on hard packed sand as well as soft sand. Wind directions of South East are the best, right off the ocean with North West being the next best coming right off the land. other directions can be used because of different areas along the northern tip of the island which is running in a different direction. The beach is about 5 miles long. Best Tyres, ?
US, South East Location: Jekyll Island, south-east coastal Georgia Parking: $5/ day parking fee to get on the island gets you ample parking. Wooden ramps and / or stairs lead over dunes to beach Facilities: Rustic but clean and comfortable public restrooms and outside shower spigots. Beachside motels, restaurants and basic shopping on island. Full feature camping facility / RV park on north end of island (no overnight parking in regular lots or camping on beach). Restrictions: No kiteboarding or buggy restrictions but we have not yet whacked a puppy or toddler, so be careful. No lights on the beach at night May- August due to hatchling sea turtles. No driving on beach any time. Alcohol OK, just no glass. Best Spot: Kite Beach, in front of Blackbeards Restaurant, 1/2 mile ( 1 km) north (turn left) of island entrance road. Blackbeards is state-owned and run, so indoor restrooms are public. Ramp with stairs to beach here, but handicapped ramp 1/2 km to the south (I use stairs even with the Bigfoot; let it down backwards with leash). Low tide at least 1/2 way out is preferred at high season (May- August), but 1/3 out is OK in winter. Tide is diurnal with about 12 hrs, 50 min. between high and low tide. At Kite Beach, high season at low tide yields normally 3 football fields worth of space for buggy with almost any wind, even with crowds, but distance runs are not likely with crowds. Off-season, distance runs of 3-4 miles are possible with ENE – SE winds. West winds possible but lumpy. Tires: Any on the low-tide hardpack (land-boards, too), standard wides are easier getting over the soft sand form the parking lot.

Really only known by locals and people who have found it by accident. Dog walkers and occasional hardy soul swimming and a handfull of buggiers is all you have to look out for. Winds predominantly from the sea (W, NW). Well worth a detour if in the area. Best Tyres, any
