Watersports - Wind Surfing by Frank Gogerty

Watersports in and around Hunstanton

Visit Norfolk's stunning Sunset Coastline - Kite Surfer's love it here

Throughout the year, watersports enthusiasts visit Hunstanton to take advantage of ideal local beach conditions to pursue water ski-ing, canoeing, kite surfing and wind surfing etc.  Due to the flat, shallow water and large open beaches, Hunstanton Beach is considered one of the best beaches on which to learn kitesurfing.  At low tide the water becomes flat and shallow but gets a little choppy as the tide comes in.  The most favoured conditions here are at low tide when the sandbar emerges on the outside and the water is flat.  Other activities enjoyed on Hunstanton Beach are parasailing and even kite buggies along the sand.

Nearby Old Hunstanton is the place to go though when the tide reaches the groynes.  At high tide there is no beach so its time to rest and explore Hunstanton. Kiters must, however, be aware of rips and tides as the beach can appear to vanish very quickly when you are engrossed in the sport.
