Looking for a little help finding some choice beach flying closest to home. I live near the Princeton area, so Point Pleasent and Bellmar are the shortest drive. Anyone have any recommendations for the best flying spots in that area?

Belmar is a great beach to fly!!!!!! As Sammy said, 2nd st is awesome, big, sandy and good water flying.

Asbury Park is also a good flying beach.

Or for a grassy field experience you can always fly with us at Liberty State Park.

By all means though, speak up about when you're going to fly, we are always ready to hit the sky!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello-

Great kites!!!
Belmar will definitely be a more regular spot as the summer is winding down!!! I don't think Liberty State Park should be that bad of a drive, either. If you're close to the turnpike, it's smooth sailing to 14B!!
Keep us posted... any excuse to fly works for us! ;)

Rev'ed up,
I live in Bordentown and actually work in Lawrenceville on Princeton Pike. Too bad I can't take some time out to fly with you. I sometimes go to Mercer County park, but the winds there are not too great. If it's blowin' hard at home, by the time I get to the park, there's nothing. GEESH! I just bought a house so I'm busy painting and moving so I haven't been out with the "Jersey Crew" in a while, but hopefully this fall I'll be able to get out more :-)
~AdventureAng
Happy flying to everybody. Now get off the computer and get a kite out! hehe

I think Sammy said it. From Princeton, Belmar is probably the fastest big/wide beach available to you. Point isn't quite as good; Asbury has its moments, though very far north on the fishing beach is probably the best. Sandy Hook is fun too, but its such a pain to get to, that Liberty gets my nod.

Wow, small world!
I have clients on Princeton Pike in Lawrenceville and in Bordentown. I drive alot for my job and always have my kites on board. Millcreek park in Willingboro has got some wide open space that sometimes works out if I am in that area. Also Burlington City at the and of High st., along the Delaware River can be a good one. Any spot inland is tough. The new Zen might be something for flyers like us to be able to fly more locally.

I live in Princeton. I might go flying this weekend somewhere on the shore with at least my 10 year-old. Can you fly kites in Sandy Hook? I would guess it's awesome for flying, plus stuff for my family to do.

Hey man sandy hook is off limit now for kites unless you go on the bay side with the kite surfers. something to do with nesting of the birds.... IDK go to Belmar or anywhere around there.

I went out to Sandy Hook today. I spoke to the ranger at the visitor center. He basically told me not to worry about it since it is the off season. He also suggested North Beach, which is very wide. So we had a beautiful few hours with a steady onshore wind. North beach is perfect. Not so wide as wildwood but enough to keep well away from the swimmers and fishermen.

I was out at Sandy Hook again yesterday - North Beach. No bother from rangers, a few of whom walked right by.

The off-season is really nice there. No traffic, plenty of room, 80 degrees and very breezy.

I might look to go out to the hook tomorrow, as I have Columbus Day off and my family doesn't. Might bring my road bike also.

Unfortunately, the wind forecast looks horrible.
