We conduct our kite surfing lessons at Camber Sands, only one hour south from London
We chose this area of the south east as the location for our kitesurfing school primarily because of the great conditions it offers for kitesurfing lessons, but also the ease of access from London. Camber Sands is the most popular beach for Londoners and also the closest – an easy journey by car down the A21 or M20, or train to nearby Rye station.
The Kitesurfing School for Londoners!
Our kitesurfing school is based on the beach at Camber Sands offering a prime location for kite surf lessons.
Our attractive beach is not only rated ‘blue flag’ because of the cleanliness but was also recently voted one of the top 10 most beautiful sites in the UK by the website ‘multimap’.
It’s a great beach to visit for the whole family or dog walking and the popularity of the area of Camber and Rye with people coming from London for all sorts of activities and adventures (not just kitsurfing!) in the summer is real proof of this!

It’s easy to learn kitesurfing, anyone can do it!
Many people often think they are too old, too unfit, too inflexible, overweight, or can’t swim far enough, but the truth is that on the whole these views are very untrue. Kitesurfing is actually much less energetic and hard on your body that most people realise, a harness is worn which takes all of the power of the kite so you are not hanging onto the kite with your arms and could actually kitesurf with just your little fingers controlling the kite! Also due to the kite doing all the work pulling you along, aerobic fitness
Both Camber and Greatstone beaches that we use for our kite surf lessons are both spacious, flat and sandy so you will never be out of your depth during a kitesurfing lesson, you will also be issued with a buoyancy aid for flotation and all of the other equipment worn such as the wetsuit and harness are also buoyant. With the high quality and caring instruction we aim to offer a comfortable environment for everyone when learning to kitesurf with us.
Confidence is an important factor in learning any sport and this is the part we help with!
All our kiteboarding courses take safety very seriously and all the necessary protective gear is included in all kite lessons. We have sizes from XXXS to XXXL and anything in between. Our wetsuits are thick so very warm even in cold weather and we have a safety boat which is the same spec as the RNLI, just incase!
We start the courses with a safety and theory session to make sure there are no incidents and then move onto the fun practical parts! Steps are taken to make sure everybody learns the necessary techniques and then we introduce the power!
