Ideal for Intermediates to Advanced. Very busy beach with the public ,BE CONSIDERATE ON & OFF THE WATER . It works in Northerly , Easterlies (NE to SE) and North Westerlies. NE to SE (onshore) & incoming tide – Okay for beginners , great for intermediates & advanced kiters & windsurfers. Can get good down the line wave riding. Strong tidal current due to the Estuary which can either help or hinder depending on the wind direction (ie in a North East you want the tide coming out against the wind). You can also head around to South Shore (Rocking Horse Rd) and launch from the Brighton side.
Dangers: DON’T SAIL BETWEEN THE SURF LIFESAVING FLAGS.
Outgoing tide can suck you very quickly.
Be very aware of other beach & water users.

Main season October to March, with wind from the Northeast. Usually less than 20 knots but sometime stronger. Usually Northeast 3 or 4 days a week but sometimes only light. Northerly also good goes from about 20 knots up. Wind not good in winter.
Full wetsuit October and November, shorty after that. Winter very cold.
