Kitesurfing has developed from a combination of other sports
including; gymnastics, wakeboarding, wind surfing and paragliding,
resulting in breathtaking stunts and hair raising speeds. This 3
day course will teach you everything you need to know to master
this exciting sport, thanks to the expert tuition in both theory
and practical lessons. You will start by learning how to control
the massive kites on land before taking it to the water and trying
this exciting and addicting sport for the first time.Once you have
arrived and been welcomed to the centre your 3 Day Kitesurfing
Course will begin with an introduction to the instructor and
equipment before getting in the classroom for a theory session.
This will introduce participants to the wind and help to understand
getting power into the kite! Also covered in the theory session is
the Equipment set up, site assessment, sea and weather
On Day 1 you will begin the introduction to Kitesurfing, fully equipped with the theory learnt in the classroom and using foil trainer kites. This includes kite set up, safe launching & landing and flying techniques. You will also cover the Kite set up and pre flight checks, the Launch/Land & Flying and Re-launch techniques before learning about Body-Dragging - Using the kite to drag you through the water! A great intro to one of the fastest growing water sports in the country.
On Day 2 you will be building on everything that you learnt on the first day, knowing that you now have the chance to get your hands on a board!
You will start the Introduction to boards by learning constant power delivery with the kite, moving onto Edging & Riding Upwind. As well as that, you will be learning the 'Rules of the Road', Deep Water Safety & Pack-Down.
On Day 3 the aim will be on turning you into a self sufficient kitesurfer, setting you up with all the knowledge and skills to go out and continue the sport independently. The theory & practical will focus on continuation and perfection of your board start technique, keeping the kite powered and under control during runs and the board control techniques. With these mastered, you can realistically focus on fully Independent control during launch, land, re-launch, board starts and general riding. You can also expect to gain an advanced knowledge of equipment, site/risk assessment and weather.

If it is heavily raining then it makes it difficult to go ahead. Camber is one of the driest places in the UK and the centre has a huge range of kites - so lessons are very rarely postponed.
Kitesurfing needs the wind... but as Camber has the most consistent and cleanest wind along the whole of the south coast, and some of the best in the country; lessons are rarely postponed.
