Price for 1 participant

Kite landboarding is one of the newest and most thrilling forms of extreme sport around, and it's not hard to see why it's become so popular. Mixing elements of kitesurfing, snowboarding and skateboarding, landboarding brings together all the fun of flying a kite with the action of riding an off-road board. As impressive as it looks, landboarding is surprisingly easy to learn; once you’ve mastered kite control, you should be up on a board and riding in a flash. Landboarding is far less restrictive than other similar sports, as you don't need much wind (unlike kitesurfing) and it can be performed either on beaches in the sand, or inland in a field or park. Landboarding is also an excellent way to improve those crucial balance skills necessary for other board sports, so this is a must for all sports enthusiasts! Give it a go with this fantastic one-day course and you won't look back.

You will start your day with a short safety briefing before being familiarised with the equipment - land board, kite, harness etc. Then it's time to have some fun! You will learn to fly and control traction kites which will get you used to the power that the kites generate. Once your kite skills are developed it is time to get you onto the board to enjoy your first runs. As key skills are developed and confidence gained, you will learn about ‘edging’ the landboard, travelling back upwind, turning, controlled stops and even jumping. Take your riding to the next level with this superb and informative course.

The minimum age is 16. There are no specific requirements regarding maximum size but you will need to fit into a harness, so please check with the centre when booking if you have concerns regarding this. If you have a particular medical condition you think may affect your ability to do the course, please check with the centre when booking.
The course will last five hours over the course of a day.
Group sizes vary but will usually be 2 - 4 students per instructor. Spectators are welcome but please listen to the instructors as to where the safest place to stand and watch is.
The course is available 7 days a week. The season generally runs from April - November.
Bring a study pair of shoes, sunglasses, sun cream and warm clothing if it is cold. All equipment will be supplied - this includes kite, board, harness, helmet and pads. You should wear trainers and clothes that you don't mind getting muddy.
Land-boarding is weather dependent, you need wind! Please make sure you call the centre either the day before or on the actual day of your course to check that your lessons is going ahead.
