Swansea bay Kitesurfing
Located about an hours drive from the Severn bridge.
Lots of sand at the high tide area but as the tide drops back there are muddy patches and rubble strewn mussel beds.(wear boots if riding at low tide)
Swansea Bay is the most sheltered bay in the area and only gets swell/ waves unless the waves are big. The main drawback of Swansea bay is the large tidal range, which makes it a long and sometimes muddy walk to the water at low tide. Low tide offers water that is shallow 60-80 metres from shore which makes this a popular spot, for people not wanting deep water.
