Lancing Beach

Wind Direction: E to W

Beach: Low tide only, as groynes become submerged and can be hazardous. Sand beach at low tide. Lancing Beach is zoned and has a club; local riders will help you out with joining the club. Small chop but really shallow at low tide. Great spot for practising new tricks but can get busy. Sweet grass area for pumping your kite up but do not launch on the grass.

There's a big car park on the spot that's only a couple of pounds for the day. Vans with roof racks need to be cautious of the barrier.

Egypt, Zaafarana

Wind Direction: All wind directions as local school has a safety boat.

Beach: Stunning sandy beach with two good size lagoons. A massive sand bar runs out to sea which the wind blows over giving super flat water. There's the added safety of cross shore winds, waist deep water with sand under foot. An amazing flat water spot for learning or freestyle riding.

Great hotel and kite school on the spot.
