Windsurfing and Kitesurfing
Windsurfing and kitesurfing have experienced a drop in popularity within the waterway in recent years. Many of the surfers prefer the surf wave conditions of the local beaches. However you will still find a core of activity at Dale as the mile wide bay lends itself to all levels of ability. The shelter provided by the land from the prevailing South Westerly winds creates an area suitable for the beginner inshore. The north Eastern side of the bay is more exposed and benefits the more experienced.
We recommended that if you are participating in wind or kitesurfing in the haven you should receive appropriate training. If you wish to learn how to windsurf or kitesurf there are a wide variety of options available locally. All abilities and aspirations can be catered for. For further details on training centres near you and around the waterway including the courses they offer are available on the RYA website for windsurfing and British Kitesurfing Association site for Kite surfing opportunities.
