Beach Name: Llanfairfechan



Llan is terrible in SE and E. It can be good for flat water blasting in S if the tide is out and you go to the West end of the beach, though being offshore is gusty.
The drop can vary Neap/Spring 3m/9m, with very low tides needing a half mile walk to the water. But is comes in quickly and after 1 hour walk is 150m. 4 hours either side of high the tides goes out 10 metres.
When the tide is low a few kiters rig on the sand as not safe to on land, and the most popular direction is NE.

Beach Name: Poole – Shore Road (Evening Hill or Whitley Bay)



As of April 2014, permits are required because too many kiters have still been launching/landing too close to pedestrians and the road. With a few kites and kiters crash landing on the pavement, cars and road again in 2013.

To prevent a ban, please walk the kite at least two line lengths away from the road/pavement before launching. Use the widest part of the beach, not the narrowest. Thank you to the majority who do help others launch and land safely.

"Kite Surfing, launching or landing is not permitted between the shore and the 50m buoyed exclusion zone at Whitley Lake."

"No Kite Surfer shall be operated in the Harbour by any person who is not in possession of a “Kite Surfing Permit”. Such a permit denotes a declaration that the holder has at least 3rd party public liability insurance , a competency statement to confirm ability to self-rescue and deep water pack down , has paid the relevant dues and agrees to abide by appropriate terms and conditions issued by the Harbour Master"

"These terms and conditions shall apply in all parts of the Harbour, as defined by article 4 of the 2012 Order (“the Harbour”). This includes seaward of the Harbour entrance and along the Sandbanks Peninsular."

"Offences may lead to prosecution under Poole Harbour General Directions for which the maximum fine is £2,500 plus costs."

Beach Name: Aberavon (Port Talbot)

Great Beach

Just started sailing Aberavon and thoroughly enjoying it. What a gem! Huge beach and super safe and sailable on all states of the tide unlike Swansea Bay. Good variety of conditions though mainly suited to improvers as there is usually some swell running and hence shorebreak to get through. Nice waves for wannabe wave sailors however they typically close out quickly rather than peel. Though there are very few windsurfers around the beach is very popular with kitesurfers and kite buggies so you usually have company. The lifeguard station a reassuring bonus and so too is the Aberavon Life Guards web site for real time wind info, when it is up. Water quality is fine, this is the Bristol Channel so the water will always be murky!
