Hi all,

Been kitesurfing for a years now but recently stopped when I moved to Nottingham (bit of a struggle from midlands), but need to get back on it asap now!! Can someone please share some advice of spots to go and any potential groups i can tag along with. Regarding insurance, yes up for it but does that cover all of UK?

Im confident in flat or choppy water, enjoy it all!

Cheers,

Angelo

Insurance covers whole of the UK, pretty sure it covers you abroad. Insurance is not mandatory in the UK, aside from possibly a few private beaches.

Hi Angelo. I think you have quite a few local choices tbh. When I say local, I mean within 100 miles. Mablethorpe, Cleethorpe, Skeggy.

heading west I'd recommend North Wales - big variety of beaches and conditions - check out the 'Kite Surf North Wales' group on facebook

heading east you could try the Hunstanton area - lots of local info here http://www.hunstantonsc.co.uk/kitesurfing-guidelines/ or check out the 'Norfolk Kiters' group on facebook

BKSA insurance is valid anywhere in the UK - no obligation to join any club at either of the above as far as I know
