Kitesurfing in Lancing 2015

2015 is well underway in Lancing and the local Kitesurfing community is out taking advantage of the great conditions first thing this morning.

Low tides, big waves and good strong winds make Lancing in West Sussex and the surrounding coastline one of the best places to Kitesurf in the UK and even the world.

Many members of the Kitesurfing community were disappointed to hear that the sport has been dropped from the 2016 Rio Olympics, being replaced by sailing which it had originally replaced.

I think there should be room for both of these fantastic sports, sailing has to be included in the Olympics, it’s a shame there isn’t room for Kitesurfing as well.

Local Kitesurfing store Evolution Board Sports recently had to move to larger premises in Penhill Road in Lancing to cope with demand as the sport is becoming more and more popular.
