Not sure whether kitesurfing is the sport for you? Then try the land-based taster session in Northumberland and discover just what this fantastic activity involves. Before you know it, you'll be signing up for the full course!

The location can vary depending on the wind direction, but all are within ten minutes of the meeting point in Beadnell. You'll first get kitted out in a wetsuit, harness and helmet, before starting your training with an expert instructor on hand at all times.

Your group will then move onto some actual flying, keeping your balance as the kite hovers high above your head - trust us, this is definitely harder than it sounds! After three hours of sun, sand and surf, it'll be time to pack up the kites and head on home, already planning when you can take your new found kitesurfing skills to the next level!
