The location does not have consistent winds. It is mostly hit or miss. During the summer season (Jun-August) there are restrictions on where the kite boarders can go, due to designated bathing areas for swimmers. The water is very shallow. It is a pretty good place for beginners to practice. The kite boarding instruction is very unorganised and not comprehensive. The name of the place is Radical Kite Centre. You can buy equipment and rent it from them. The owners are friendly on the surface, but lacking in technical knowledge and skill. If one is looking for lessons, it is better to search elsewhere.
