The Free rider zone starts just before the beach huts and ends before the out flow pipe.
The teaching zone starts from the out flow pipe and ends just before the Yacht club. This dedicated training area is ONLY to be used by those learning to kitesurf under professional instruction and NOT for those self teaching.
If you are new to kitesurfing and heading downwind then please respect these zones and if a school is teaching please come into shore before the out flow or shortly after, walk back up wind and start again observing the rights of way!
The parish council has granted a years “self police” approach but for sure if we dont work together on this South Lancing will be closed to Kitesurfers and that would be a real shame!
Lancing Kitesurfing Club has been set up to assist Lancing Parish Council and the BKSA to coordinate the management of the sport in Lancing
With the kind support of Lancing Parish Council the club has been able to secure a beach hut for kiters to use. This will be located in the kiting zone and should be in situ for the summer. Lancing Beach and Beach Green are there for everyone to enjoy so please respect other beach users.
Lancing Parish Council and BKSA advise all kitesurfers who wish to kite here should have the appropriate insurance. If you join the club you’ll get a years BKSA insurance which includes:
- £5 Million 3rd party liability Insurance
- Use of the beach hut
- Beach events and BBQ’s
Having BKSA insurance is not just for your safety but also for that of your fellow kiters and other beach users.
Lancing is a south facing beach so the following wind directions work;
South East – Side on from the left
Southerly – On Shore
South West – Side shore from the right (this wind direction is best)
Lancing works best on a south westerley and 2 to 3 hours before and after low tide.
