Kitefoiling spots in south east

Shoot the breeze and stay in the loop with the unhinged and unhooked word on the street.

Hi all

I live in London and am looking at the kite foiling spots alternatives around. I go most of the time to Southend (east beach) around high time but it is not very practical when high tide is very early or late in the day.
I also went few times to Calshot, but it is quite a long ride.
What are the other spots convenient within reach from London?

Thanks!

Shoreham is pretty good - especially if you are learning. Not too busy, you can foil and low tide and there are no groynes to worry about. There are also a few other foilers down there so you are not likely to be alone in light winds.

You can ride at Uncle Toms beach for a lot longer than at east beach, normally 2.5-3 hours either side of high tide.
