If you like the idea of skimming across open water or harnessing the wind in your kite to surf waves then experience the adrenalin and exhilaration of KITE SURFING!!!
Wales is a hotbed of kite surfing champions. It picks up the wind and Atlantic swell and has the flat water for those new to the sport. This is what makes the Gower such a diverse and ideal holiday location for both beginners and experience kite surfers looking for a challenge.
The Gower is listed in the top 5 Welsh kite surf locations and is described as “pretty rugged”. “Pretty” for the jaw dropping landscape and “rugged” for the raw power the Gower pumps out both for wind and surf.
Find a place near the beach
There are plenty of B&Bs, dormitory accommodation and campsites near the beach. For those planning a tour around beaches on the Gower we have a number of favourites we are happy to share. Swansea Bay offers the most shelter but gets the least amount of swell. Literally at the other end of the scale/Gower peninsular is the legendary Rhossili Bay, home to Llangennith village and Hillend campsite. This is a zoned beach with 3 miles of golden sand that picks up the most swell of any beach in this region.
Where to start your adventure
For beginners, we host a range of kite sporting courses which are essential for those new to reading the wind, wave and weather patterns. We’ve got over a decades worth of teaching experience around this beautiful coastline and can choose a location to suit your ability.
We host a two-day course and will chose the right location based on the local conditions. An open mind to Welsh weather is key to getting hooked on this sport and for the more experience we can show you the “pretty rugged” that makes Wales such a top location for a kite surfing holiday.
