Kitesurfing or Kiteboarding has exploded on to the Extreme Sports scene over the past five years; it takes the best from a range of water sports like surfing, wakeboarding, windsurfing and paragliding. With the introduction of modern equipment and a structured approached to learning which is developed by the International Kitesurfing Organisation (IKO) and taught by IKO and British Kite Surfing Organisation (BKSA) approved instructors, learning to Kitesurf has never been easier. Our 1 Day Introduction to Kitesurfing Course is your way in to one of the fastest growing sports of the 21st century and the perfect way to get a taste of this great extreme sport.

This one day course will give you all the fundamentals of kiteflying (which is 90% what kitesurfing is all about) and give you an introduction to all the equipment, kiteboards, kitesurf kites and safety. The fun really starts when you hit the water and start practicing body dragging (which is being pulled over the water by the kite), this is when you will really start to appreciate the power that these kites generate. By the end of the day, depending on your progress, you might start putting your new skills together and start attempting some board starts.
