5 day zero - hero April 2015
Had an absolutely fabulous time! The instructors are all so chilled out and super friendly with a wealth of experience to draw from, made for a really good learning atmosphere. Also all the other kitesurfers were great to be around, really supportive and friendly.
I also had to rearrange one of my days due to transport issues and the guys were completely laid back and understanding about it.
If you're anything like me (small, female, reasonably fit though probably slightly below average cardio) then you'll end up with a really stiff neck from looking up at the kite so much, lack of upper body strength however is not an issue at all, and the most tiring bit of the sport I found was wading out into waist deep water! Though it's a little mentally draining as sometimes there is a lot to think about.
The only reason I didn't give this a 5 star review is because considering how varied people are at the rate which they learn, you may not get to the point of learning jumps as advertised on the site. For some the idea that you'll get to the point of learning jumps is quite optimistic. I took to this quite slow (partly I think because I didn't deal too well with the cold water and cold northerly wind that i had to deal with while I was learning), and I was happy at the end of my course that I could simply stand up on the board for a few seconds before falling flat on my face in the water!
Overall, the 5 day course is definitely worth it! It's good to be able to just get a whole chunk of the learning process done in one go rather than slowly doing it over the course of a few weeks, I really saw myself progress over the days which was incredibly rewarding. Just don't necessarily expect to be a pro by the end of the 5 days ;)
1 Day intro Course
We had a fantastic day and feel ready to take on the challenge, next year. Our instructor Tomasz was very professional, approachable and friendly, making us relaxed.
Being in our late 40’s we were apprehensive, but the whole experience was fantastic, this is a credit to you guys. We look forward to continuing our training.
1 day - 20th September 2014
Very friendly and professional centre.
Had a great time on the 1 day course. The instructor (Clive) was excellent - informative, enthusiastic and patient. The other instructors were also there to offer advice and equally informative, enthusiastic and patient. A really friendly bunch!
We started with powerkite flying in groups of 2 and then moved to the larger kites! The power is amazing, but the skills you learn with the smaller kites are transferable and help you stay in control.
I'm already planning my return to complete the remainder of the 2 day / 3 day course! Highly recommend giving it a try.
Great intro weekend to kitesurfing
Last weekend I completed 1-day beginner course at Kitesurf Centre on Saturday and on Sunday I came back to have an individual lesson with their instructor. 1-day beginner course gave me an comprehensive overview of theoretical aspects of kitesurfing including thoroughly explained safety rules. Afterwards I learned how to control the kite on the beach and practiced body dragging with kite in the water. I came back on Sunday afternoon to have one-to-one lesson with an instructor. Tomasz was extremely helpful and patient. He tested my knowledge regarding what I learned the previous day about kite preparation and setting off kite on the beach. We then warmed up practicing body dragging in the water before starting my first attempts to do water start with the board. Thomas was extremely supportive, helped me to correct my mistakes and gave me plenty of practical tips. At the end of the session I managed to start off from the water on my own which made me very happy. I recommend Kitesurf Centre to everyone interested in taking up kitesurfing in the beautiful surrounding of Camber Sands and Greystone.
Great intro to Kiteboarding
Two day course was my first intro to Kiteboarding. KitesurfCentre are fantastic. Relaxed atmosphere, tutors very experienced and upbeat, very structured course and easy to understand everything. Great fun, I'll be back for a 1 2 1, definitely got the bug. Many thanks.
I had an absolutely fantastic time!
Very easy to book, everyone was so nice, helpful and of course made sure you are safe. I did a 1 day intro but am definitely coming back for more action!!!
Thank you guys and see you soon!
Awesome + addictive
Two-day course was great way to fulfill long desired ambition.
Thanks to all guys at Kitesurf Centre for a really great experience, getting me up and going by the end of it all.
Have definitely caught the bug - trying to look at arranging a return back in the near future to build on what I learnt.
Tuition weekend of 12/13 July
Hey Tristan and team
Thank you for a really fab session. Tristan your patience is second to none and with me you need a lot of it... :) Great in-depth instruction, boundless enthusiasm. Thank you
We had an absolutely fantastic time, the instructors were incredible.
the group sizes were perfect and the structure of the lessons were great so we never got bored and even if the wind wasn't strong enough the instructors still had loads for us to do.
Safety was paramount to all of the instructors and it made us feel more confident.
Our instructors Ben and rupert were great! had such a great laugh and made the week so enjoyable, made us feel part of the kitesurf family.
I attended the 5 day course, with previously attending a course else where and I can say that the experience from the kitesurf centre was 110% better, I learnt a lot more through them than the other course. the team at the kitesurf centre were so helpful and friendly, such a great bunch of people! Every lesson was insightful and full of helpful techniques that can be used once you start to kitesurf. the lessons were never dull thanks to the great sense on humour of the instructors!
