About Lowestoft

Kiteboarding at this location is only permitted from September to May only.

Kiteboarding is restricted in the summer months as with a high tourist levels and sunbathers. Safe launching and landing is impossible. So during summer months it’s a pretty much a no go area.

In spring and autumn and winter you can kiteboard on Lowestoft main beach but you must consult the Beach Warden/Life Guard. Considering that the location we rig up in and launch from is directly in front of the life guard’s hut, which is where the lifeguards are based, it’s generally not a problem. However beach walkers and dog walkers are in abundance so care is needed and also this area. Lowestoft has wooden groyne sea defences so be careful don’t go out to overpowered and certainly extra care is needed on cross-onshore winds as the escape routes to the beach become very narrow and there is a very good chance you kite will land or ride onto the groynes. If you see a kite go down and it doesn’t relaunch and the kiteboarder is swimming in, get ready to assist him or her because they will need your help to save that kite. It also has a large protruding wooden pier called the “Claremont Pier”. Further North is the “South Pier” a concrete build pier. Always consider which direction is downwind, if it takes you in the direction of the piers, it’s most definitely a better idea to kiteboard at the Pakefield beach kite zone.
