In accordance with Covid-19 guidelines set by our NGB we are currently unable to provide beginner kitesports lessons. We will update our website when this changes. If you are an Independent Kitesurfer please check our Intermediate / Advanced Coaching. If not and you still wish to purchase a voucher for a lesson, we will get you rocking on the water as soon as possible. Vouchers purchased in 2020 will be valid for 2 years (instead of the usual 12months)
THE LOW DOWN…
Kitesurfing has been the fastest growing watersport for the past 5 years, and there is a reason why!
Becoming easier and safer to learn with every passing year, now is the perfect time to learn to kitesurf. Using the power of the wind to propel yourself across the surface of the water, carving through the waves and jumping into the sky is what draws people again and again to the beach. One of the main draws of kitesurfing is that though it is one sport, it contains many disciplines within. From free riding all the way to advanced wave riding or wake style freestyle, Kitesurfing has many elements. One of the fastest growing aspects is the racing. Racing events are run in the same format to Olympic Sailing.
Our private tuition is completely tailored and can be run in 2-3hr sessions. You can cover any element hat you feel you need refreshing on, or you can have a course tailored to suit your learning style. Example of elements covered: Site Assessment, Wind conditions and Wind Effects, Set up, Assisted Pack Down, Use of a Safety System, Self Rescue (Landing Alone), Basic Flying Techniques, Power Stroke, LEI Set up, LEI Safety and Self Rescue Techniques, learning the basics of LEI kite control, Body Dragging (blasting through the water on your belly!) and practicing the Self rescue process, practising assisted launching / landing techniques, first board starts, first starts, prolonged rides, upwind riding, first turns, toeside and pops. If you’re looking for the next level check out our “Advanced Coaching”.
