Mood: Just Chillin
Kiting Restrictions

A recent accident here associated with a BKSA kitesurfing event has lead to talks between the BKSA and local authorities. Nothing has been decided yet, but it looks as though regulations of some sort to prevent further kite related accidents occurring will soon be enforced.

Mood: Still Learning

The water quality. Dont even bother going there, its terrible, brown oily water with occasional raw sewage

Restrictions: Difficult to access at high tide

Comments: High local crime rate means regular car break ins/ thefts this combined with poor water quality means I would reccomend anyone goes to restbay or the gower.

Water Conditions

Hi, the sea water is a lot cleaner these days but can not guarentee the surf. I recently moved here and have just started to learn to surf, so you may need to take my comments with a pinch of salt.

Windsurfing at Aberavon

This is a bit of a longshot but are there any of you guys who sail at Aberavon? I moved here last year and despite living less than 100m from the beach I do not go out very ofton as there is no-one else out. There are quite a few kite surfers but no windsurfers. Does anyone fancy a blast?

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!
