Kite Surfing - The New Rock 'n Roll

Surfing, then wind surfing, and now kite surfing! This is the latest sport to hit the Llŷn. The long sandy beaches, easy parking, the empty bays, and wind aplenty makes the Llŷn an ideal place to pursue this sport. It's also very much a sport that can be enjoyed throughout the year, providing you are experienced and know what you are doing. We have had a group staying in Manaros, in Aberdaron, and they enjoyed their time on Penllech beach just 5 miles away enormously.

If you have never done this before and haven't got the kit then a company in Abersoch, Off Axis (ask for Jack) will provide kit and lessons. The costs would be £120 for a 6 hour session, which would typically involve 3 hours of land based training and three hours in the water. Normally this instruction is one to one, but it could be one to two, though the price is still £120 per person as a lot of this cost is hire of the kit. If only two people in a much bigger party want to have the lessons, then don't worry, the rest of the group will enjoy what is also a great spectator sport. The best time of year for lessons is not in the Winter when the water is at its coldest.
