Another call out for the RNLI in Burry Port on new years day, a kitesurfer had got in trouble but was rescued OK, after drifting with the tide for some time apparently.

Please be aware guys although it looks great and safe here for a flat water blast, when the wind and tide are in the same direction YOU WILL NOT GET BACK TO WHERE YOU LAUNCHED,and with the tide coming in and wind in the normal westerly direction, chances are you will end up on rocks or the railway line!! this has happened 6 times to kitesurfers in this area over the last few months and 4 were brought back by the RNLI as luck had it.

Take care especially in the cold

Good call Clarky.

It's an estuary after all, and an estuary is likely to have fast flowing water....it's also a good thing to practice your body drags in case you lose your board as it could be going the opposite direction to you at some rate of knots!

I think generally there will be very little rip there but obviously at high tide there will be other issues like the buildings groin etc to keep a distance from but on a whole it's pretty good.

As Marc says. Llanelli beach is all Ok especially as it has a sandbank to stop the swell. just dont go near the stone groynes either side as there are big holes that your leg can slip into.
