A little bit about Kitesurfing
The terms kitesurfing and kiteboarding are often used interchangeably.
Kitesurfing tends to refer to the water-based side of kiteboarding, an exciting extreme sport that harnesses the power of the wind to propel the user on a board across water, land and even snow! There are many different disciplines within kitesurfing including racing, wave riding, freeride, freestyle and recently the addition of hydrofoiling. We also hold a world record in speed sailing and can reach speeds of 55 knots! Find out more about the kitesurfing lessons we offer here.
Kitesurfing lesson timings and dates are based around the tide times which change each day. Kitesurf lessons are dependent on the wind and may be subject to change or cancellation at short notice. But don’t worry, your lesson will be rescheduled at no further cost to yourself on a suitable date. The wind range must be within 11-25 knots in order to provide you with a safe and high quality lesson. If the wind is too strong it can be dangerous and if too light, the kite won’t stay in the sky! You can find out the wind predictions and future tide times by heading over to our weather page.
