My name is John and I live in Leamington Spa. Having done a week in Hurghada, 2 weeks in El Gouna and 2 weeks in Ras Sudr (over the last 3 years) I now want to venuture in to the seas surrounding our coastline.

Can anyone recommend suitable beaches within a reasoanable distance form Leamington Spa that would be good for an intermediate?

If anyone travels from the Warwickshire or surrounding areas I would be interested to hear from you as I currently have no one to kite with...

Im sure theres plenty of guys from this forum around warwickshire, but you probably wont get an answer until tuesday, coz theyll probably be on there way over here.

Probly see ya on the beach here soon.

John, welcome to f-o-n. As Shem says, there's quite a few of us who live in Warwickshire. I live in Leamington, and one of the best places to go is Aberdyfi/Borth - friendly crowd.

I'm off to Gower this week, but not impressed with the forecast at the moment.

Depends what you mean by reasonable distance. Hunstanton, Aberdyfi, Porthcawl, Ainsdale all about 3 hours drive away - that's the only benefit of living in the middle - you can go East or West Coast!

3 hours is definatly managable.

Would be good to have a chat with any one in and around Leamington/Warwick to find out more about when, where, who, how etc.
