The ban on kitesurfing at Hayle (aka “the Bluff”) has been lifted. There are restrictions with a permit system. Please see the “Bluff Code of Conduct“.
The Code of Conduct short version is “have insurance, have a permit, give way to boats at all times (keep 100m away).
Free parking for Bluff Pass holders
To get your Bluff pass go to one of the outlets (list below) with your BKSA card. If you don’t have BKSA membership, you’ll need other proof that you have insurance to kitesurf. If you have the KKC as your affiliate club on your BKSA card is free.
The system is working well, so please use, don’t abuse the spot and the code of conduct.
The Bluff pass also comes with free parking at Harvey Towans ( the rough car park on top of the slope above the river mouth – see attached map- it is not for parking at The Bluff Pub). If you want to take advantage of this you will need to display a Hayle Harbour Parking Permit and give the number plate of the vehicle you intend to use when buying / picking up your pass (ANPR Parking is going to be installed in 2022).
