About Poole Harbour
The waters around Poole offer some great kitesurfing conditions - whether you are learning to kite or wanting epic sea conditions.
Whitley Bay (or inside harbour) offers ideal learning conditions with the water never being much more than waist height. Rig and launch up wind near the Sanbanks Hotel.
If you are looking to stretch yourself - Sandbanks beach offers amazing conditions in the right wind directions. Kite from the main Sandbanks car park or move down the beach towards Bournemouth and surf behind the Sandbanks Hotel or further down towards Branksome.
If you do venture further afield, the deep water channel is very busy with traffic - most of it of the gin palace variety, with the occasional Sea Cat or car ferry thrown in for good measure. If you get in their way, they won't see you or feel a thing when they run over you. Don't try to assert your right of sail having priority over power!
The deep water channel gets very choppy, & the currents are stronger here.
Keep well away from the harbour entrance & the chain ferry.
Also be aware of launching to close to the road
