Great wind exposure(N-NW-W-SW-S-SW) with great variety of water conditions(flat to big bump and jump). Super Location in Tampa Bay for Sea Breezes/W oriented winds! Picnic Island Park is the place to launch from... Tampa's biggest peninsula park juts out into the heart of Tampa Bay. Be careful-lots of boat traffic off west shore yields to FUN wake from tugboats, supplyships, frieghtships,and private yachts going to/from old port of Tampa in the shipping channel. Just West of MacDill Airforce Base-great show of Airforce and Navy supply planes and fighter jets(F-15, F-16, F-18. A-10 etc) screaming by on landings and takeoffs! Local Expert? edit Edit this Page!
