Lowestoft is a popular kitesurfing spot on the East coast but is only permitted from September to May. The restrictions are due to the popularity of the Lowestoft beaches for tourists in the summer that make it impossible to launch safely.
To kiteboard on Lowestoft main beach you must consult the Beach Warden/Life Guard.
Lowestoft has a wooden groyne sea defence system commonly found on the UK coast which can make landing difficult. Two Piers are on the beach so consider the wind direction before launching and if it is blowing towards the pier it is best to move down to Pakefield to give yourself some more room.
