Open Monday to Friday 8.30 AM to 5:20 PM
Kite surfing and sand sports are really taking off (excuse the pun!) as a great sporty way to make the most of the many miles of coastline here in the UK. Whether you try kitesurfing, land boarding, buggy kiting, body dragging or the land yachts, these beach-based experiences make for an exhilarating day out in the fresh air by the sea.
All the equipment and instruction is included for these activities, so all you need to bring with you is the determination to 'fly' along the beach, across the water or even over both! And no, you don't need to be big, strong and muscly to control a kite - it's all about understanding the wind and technique, as you'll soon find out on these lessons. Read more...

Some of our sessions take you up to this point, whilst others then put your out on the water. Once again, you will start being out in the surf with just the kite and without the board. This is so you can get used to the sensation of being propelled on through the water (this is also a sport in itself called body dragging).
Our longer courses will then see you progressing to heading out into the waves with both the kite and the board, ready to surf those barrels and go flying. If conditions and balance are on your side, you will be tackling turning. Then maybe even getting a bit of airtime (which is really what kite surfing is all about) as you jump off the crest of a wave, pop out of the water and glide in the air.
Of course, you're bound to crash and burn and take a few 'facials' as kite surfer types would say. But when you find yourself splashing around in the water, it's actually not that hard to recover, as the clever kites stay afloat, making it easier to relaunch. This is thanks to that fact that the canopies used are generally either leading edge (i.e. with inflatable tubes running along them) or foil types, with built in air pockets.
