Water sports, Kitesurfing, Kayaking in Southend on Sea
Southend-on-Sea is the most popular area in the region for kitesurfers. The Estuary provides ideal conditions with prevailing Southerlies during the summer months providing cross-onshore conditions. The two council designated kitesurf areas are East Beach at Shoeburyness, just a short drive east from Southend and Chalkwell Ray, west of the town centre.
East Beach at Shoebury is one of the best places in the country to learn, due to its shallow, calm water and good cross winds. As the tide goes out at East Beach the water level drops significantly allowing surfers to stand up for 1 mile. At low tide a number of lagoons form between the sandbars which generally provide flat water in all wind conditions.
You can give Southend watersports a try too! Southend Marine Activities Centre runs courses in windsurfing, sailing, kayaking or jetskiing for families, beginners and improvers.
On top of all this, five yacht clubs provide choice for sailors, and Southend Pier is a popular choice for fishing.
