Most locals tend to congregate at The Battery before deciding where to actually go from. The battery itself offers good sailing on mid to high tides, although on large spring tides the water gets too high and landing spots are few and far between, Low tide is sailable, but it can be a long walk to the water. There can also be a nice wave here that breaks off the large rock groyne. Otherwise though The Battery offers bump and jump windsurfing conditions or flat water blasting in SW through NW to NE winds. The Battery is also the usual place for kitesurfing in Morecambe Bay, but its best to wait for the tide to drop a little so that there is enough room on the beach for launching and landing.
