Beware of beach zones (see map in notice boards at beach). If unsure ask the seasonal lifeguards or wardens. Do not fly kites two hours either side of high water since beach space will be severely restricted. Do not fly power kites without referring to the manufacturers manual or seeking professional tuition. For further information, advice and professional tuition see the members of the Pembrokeshire Outdoor Charter.Please think about other users – if you are on a kite board or buggy you take up a great deal of beach. Other users don’t know how skilled you are and may feel frightened or threatened by the kite and lines. On the water you are perhaps likely to find less competition for space on the days which are good for kite surfing but make space for surfers, windsurfers etc as well. Training and 3rd party insurance are essential for kite surfing and boarding/buggies.
All power kite flyers are asked to respect the safety of and avoid other beach users, act responsibly and hold third party liability insurance.Other beach users are asked to be aware of kite flyers and their equipment. Do not approach kites or kite flyers from downwind as some equipment e.g. lines may cause harm. Do not approach within striking distance of a flying kite.
