About Weston-Super-Mare, England
Weston-Super-Mare is a busy tourist hotspot all year round, and when the tide retreats out to sea, you will often see many kitebuggying enthusiasts and land-boarders taking advantage of the huge flat sands. However, there's still plenty of space for us kitesurfers.
The sea is usually quite choppy, and the best time to kite is two hours either side of high tide, as after this it can get very muddy.There are hazardous posts that can be hard to spot at high tide, and the prevailing winds are very onshore. Therefore it is not a recommended spot for unsupervised complete beginners.
