Kitesurfing is a weather dependent sport. Basically you need wind! Depending on the location you may also need wind in a particular direction. The tides also play a part with many locations not being able to teach at high tides. Please make sure you call the centre either the day before or on the actual day of your course to check that your lesson is going ahead.
Excellent centre, really friendly staff, great kites.
Did the coarse a while back, absolute must if you want to get into kiting as their is a lot to learn, strong enfaces on safety and teaching you how to look after yourself in the water which is so important in kitesurfing. The couple than run the coarse are super friendly and VERY VERY patient. All the kit you use is top notch, money well spent.
