Blueplanet Kite Beach
It really feels a little bit like the end of the world when you arrive to Blueplanet Kite Beach for the first time. And just a few hours later it’s like you made a trip out of this world. No crowd, steady wind and the flattest conditions most riders out there have ever experienced. All of that right at the doorstep of your room!
The spot is about 50 minutes north of Baku City. The lagoon is named after a small nearby village called Shuraabad. The center is located on a peninsula which encloses a lagoon of roughly 4 square kilometers. For experienced riders it will immediately become obvious that the set-up is close to perfect. The lagoon works with all wind directions and it is secure to land on all shores. There are absolutely no wind obstructions and the water is about waist-deep which makes it super safe for beginners. Yet it’s deep enough for impact when training your freestyle tricks. There is not a single stone in the entire lagoon – nothing but sand and some seaweed.
On ESE-days when the wind blows from Caspian over the peninsula you will have butter-soft and mirror-like sessions with 5 bft plus and not a single ripple on the surface!
The open water side of the peninsula is obviously choppy and can only be surfed during on-shore and side-on-shore conditions for safety reasons since there is no rescue boat in operation.
Strong NNE days sometimes generate a small 1-1.5m wave about 70m from the shore rolling onto a sandy bottom. Make sure you have a chat with the local crew before going out on the open Sea – there are some old oil rigs out there that need to be avoided under all circumstances!
