Kites Banned from Canadian Hole
Power lines too close to launch area
Although the sign between Avon and Buxton says "Haulover
Day Use Area," locals and windsports enthusiasts refer to the spot
as Canadian Hole. Why? Drive by the parking lot sometime in April or October.
You'll be amazed by how many Canadian license plates you see!
Canadian Hole has developed a reputation as the premiere windsurfing spot
on the East Coast. Once kiteboarding started to become popular, it was
a great location for that as well. Recently, kites were banned from Canadian
Hole due to the close proximity of power lines to the launching area.
Now it has been designated for windsurfers only and kiteboarders are encouraged
to launch from Kite Point, just south of Canadian Hole.

out to the left towards the bottom of the map. Zoom in to see the Haulover
Day Use Area parking lot and restrooms just north of Kite Point.
