Kitesurfing is one of the most exhilarating and rewarding
watersports there is, and learning to kitesurf has never been
easier than with this fantastic half day kitesurfing taster session
in Southend-on-Sea, Essex. Similar to windsurfing, Kitesurfing
involves skimming across the water on a kiteboard, harnessing the
power of the wind with a specially designed kite and then flying
through the air. It is spectacular to watch and even more fun to
do; the buzz of being propelled across the water, lifted into the
sky and spinning around before gently landing back onto the water
is second to none.
During this fantastic session you will be taught by calm, patient instructors and use modern, high-quality equipment chosen through years of experience. Covering land-based skills such as getting to grips with a powerkite and kite control, and water-based skills, such as being pulled through the water on the kites, you’ll be amazed at how quickly you can progress. So whether you’re looking for a brand new hobby, to impress your friends, or just experience an adrenaline rush like never before, this superb private Kitesurfing lesson is for you!On arrival at the centre in Southend-on-Sea in Essex, your half day kitesurfing taster experience will begin with a welcome from your expert, friendly instructors and an overview of the aims of the session.
