Kite surfing is very popular along the Sussex coast. Two of the most popular spots are Goring and Lancing. I've been told by those who know these things that Lancing is one of the South Coast's best kite surfing beaches. And with its shallow water is perfect for beginners.
Lancing has its own kitesurfing club, and since the summer of 2015 it now has a large new cafe restaurant on the beach, The Perch.
The Beach Green car park is large and costs £1-50 per day from Good Friday or 1 April (which ever comes first) until 30 September. Otherwise it is free.
