There are a number of spots around the lake where you can launch from the beach. If you’re an independent rider (confident riding in most wind conditions, able to relaunch, and able to retrieve your own board, and able self-rescue) then they are a great option.
Not all of the launches are easy (often the beaches are narrow, and the wind can be a little gusty right in by the shore), but once you’re out on the water you’ll have smooth wind and huge amounts of space to play in.
Most spots have cafe/bar facilities.
Different spots work best at different times of day/in different wind conditions. For more information you can check out our spot guide.
