We have decided to go to one of our favourite beaches the beautiful Pembrey Country Park tieing up with our friends at WKKitesurfProject. If you have never been before Pembrey is just past the end of the M4 into Wales and has miles upon miles of beach with stunning views and small waves coming in. It is just a stunning soft sand beach. There is also beautiful camping in the country park on site for only £15 a night per pitch so a bargain and perfect excuse to stay the weekend! Keep an eye on our facebook group for more info if you want to join us.
Pembrey (Cefn Sidan Beach) Kiting Beach Location: (https://goo.gl/CW6rSS) Meet at the carparks behind the entrance to the beach. Kitesurfing is no problem here as long as you have BKSA insurance etc. Land board and buggy are not possible without being a day member of Carmarthen Land Sailing Club (http://www.clscuk.co.uk/) which you can join for day membership online.

Camping: Pembrey Country Park - £15 Per Night - book online (1 pitch tent/van)
B&B / Hotels: There are loads of options in Pembrey or Bury Port on google or Airbnb.
-------------------------------------------------------------------The ATBShop Demo Tour is a great way to get involved and meet other kite flyers and check out the latest new gear on the beach. We are taking the shop on tour to some of our favourite locations in the UK and want you to come with us! A great part of kitesurfing is travelling to new locations even in our own British Isles there are some stunning beaches out there.
These are all beaches that are suitable for all levels of rider not just the experts. We will have van's full of kites and boards to test out on the beach too. Just look for the ATBShop blue banners and come and say hello. Due to the fickle weather on our island we have decided to generally work out the location the week before so we get the best location possible for the conditions.
Demo'ing Equipment and Lesson Clinics:
If you are demoing equipment then we need you to be a competent independent rider that can ride upwind etc. If you want to improve your kite surfing then we will also have our resident instructor Harry doing individual kitesurfing lesson clinics too. If you want to book into a lesson please contact us in advance to book a time slot in.
Never flown before but want to give it a try?
If you have never flown a powerkite then we will also have "free taster powerkite sessions" running on the beach so anyone can come along and have a fly of a powerkite and hopefully enjoy powerkiting and perhaps think about kitesurfing or landboarding in the future.
Hope you can come along and get involved and have a ride with us this summer.
