Kitesurfing has to be one of the coolest water sports ever …
It is a wind-powered watersport that uses a kite and a board to propel you across the water. Despite the name, it doesn’t have to involve wave surfing – kitesurfing can be done on mirror-flat lagoons, as well as in choppy seas or big waves. All you need is wind and water.
Most beginners are completely new to boardsports, watersports and kite-flying, many have never flown a kite or done another watersport in their life.
You don’t need to be super-fit to kitesurf. And the kit is lightweight, so you don’t need lots of muscle strength either. However, a general level of fitness will help you progress faster, give you more stamina on the water and help you avoid injuries.
The only skills you need to start is you should be comfortable swimming in open water.
There’s a lot of fun and progression to be had with kitesurfing. Once you’ve mastered the basics of riding along and staying upwind, you can start going faster, jumping, doing freestyle tricks, riding waves or going on long ‘downwinders’ along the coast.
Our instructor will furnish you with essential safety know-how and procedures.
Building your confidence and trusting your self and your equipment is the first hurdle for many.
Being strapped to a kite can feel scary at first, but our instructor will help you relax and show you just how safe updated kiting equipment is, provided you use it right.
