Soft sand. Grass areas nearby allowing you to pack up with no sand. Thin beach though, may require rider or launcher to go into the water. Watch out for trees! Launching can be tricky sometimes with tree lines right on the beach and nearby vacant holiday homes. Watch out for broken glass on the beach !!!!

Winter months are better. Air temps 60-75°F, water temps 55-70°F. I didn't use a wetsuit all winter, except for a 2mm shorty once or twice. The Bermudians rode with wetsuits.

Westerly: can be tricky launching. North: allows riding across to Cambridge beaches and back. Northeast: directly onshore, requires upwind riding to get out. Not possible from Somerset Long Bay. Summer months tend to have southerly winds, not possible to ride here then - Elbow beach instead.
