Liverpool is situated along the eastern side of the Mersey Estuary. The climate here is classified as a temperate maritime climate, like much of the British Isles, with mild winters and cool summers. Liverpool is noted for its music, as it is the birthplace of The Beatles. It is also well known for its rich architectural heritage. In addition to that, the city won the World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in 2004.

Ainsdale Beach is situated between Liverpool and Southport and is one of the most popular destinations for kite activities in the UK. It should also be noted that, Ainsdale is the only beach in the North West that has ever been awarded a Blue Flag.

There are designated launch areas for kite surfing, kite buggy and landboard. Keep in mind that, a permit is required before you use the kite zone. The beach is suitable for both the novice and advanced kiter. If you don’t have previous experience or you wish to improve your skills, then you should visit the kite-surfing school, that is located in the area.

The periods that offer great conditions for kitesurfing are during spring and autumn months. Furthermore, the spot accommodates mainly westerly winds and it provides medium waves that work from 1 m/3.28 ft to 2.5 m/8.2 ft. Kiters can try freestyle, bump and freeride. Last but not least, the location caters good facilities, including toilets and parking. Note: be careful of strong currents.

Wave Surfing Lessons, East Sussex
/ Camber Sands, East Sussex, South East England, United Kingdom

The huge benefit of stand up paddle surfing over regular surfing is that much smaller less steep waves are catchable before they break, and as the boards are much more stable it is easier to pick up. Additionally, as you start in a standing position, there is no popping up onto the SUP, while the paddle can be used for extra stability and drive on the wave.

Camber offers some for stand up paddle surfing with both small and big waves.

Course Duration: 2 hours
