Area: .

Borth is a small seaside town with a few shops, cafes, an amusement arcade and ice cream. There’s plenty of room to launch and land kites. On a high wind day you’ll find big waves if you venture out, and on light wind days it’s mainly small choppy waves.

Wind Directions

Borth will work on anything from S, clockwise all the way round to N.

If the wind swings Easterly go down to Ynyslas there's a fab lagoon that comes up you can kite on. Don't wait until low tide though or it'll be empty.
