Exmouth has two fantastic spots - the Duck Pond and the Seafront covering a wide range of wind and tide conditions.

Both have their own unique hazzards, restrictions and sensitivities so please read the detailed spot guides.

If the conditions are kiteable there will almost certainly be others around so don’t be afraid of introducing yourself to a local and asking for advice if you’re new to this particular spot.

Don't be the KOOK of the beach, don't hurt others or yourself & DON'T GET KITESURFING BANNED

Once you understand the spots, check the Weather page for tips on how to find out what’s predicted and what’s actually going on.

The “Duck Pond” works best on a North Westerly (NW) wind - as the wind ‘cleans up’ as it funnels down Exe Estuary from Exeter.

It’s best 2 hours either side of High Tide, but can be ridden at most states of the tide if you’re willing to walk.

The Duck Pond has a Wildlife Refuge area active from 15th September to the end of December and it’s vital we keep out of this area.

Kitesurfers must give way to all other vessels in the Navigation Channel and maintain an adequate clearence.

The main area is sheltered by a sandbank which provides fantastic flat water conditions at low tide.

Works best in S, SE and ESE as the wind comes in ‘clean’ off the sea. SW works but is gusty as the wind is coming over the hills.

The Channel just in front of the beach has a very strong tide and the area can get very busy in summer so it’s for experienced kiters only, unless you have boat support to get you out to the sandbank.
