SCENE

A small beach loaded with driftwood and beach debris, Richmond Beach offers some of the best local winter kiting around. Like most winter spots in the Puget Sound with small beaches and nearby infrastructure, this is an advanced launch. Watch out for the “deadhead” pilings in the center of the beach that are submerged and not visible at high tide.
