Kitesurfing Equipment Hire

Kite Buggy, Landboard, Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) & Surfboard Rental on Camber Sands Beach

Kitesurfing equipment hire is aimed at those who have completed kitesurfing lessons either with us or at another school but don’t yet want to commit to purchasing your own kit, or perhaps are on holiday in the South East near Camber, Greatstone or Rye? Equipment hire is an economic and easy way to get you out on the water.

We also offer the hire of kitesurfing boards/harnesses , kite buggy, SUP, surf and kite landboarding equipment – everything you need is included. It is best to contact us about hiring these individual items as it is subject to availabilty and conditions forecast.

BKSA Level Certification & Ability Assessment

To hire kitesurfing equipment you must have completed a kitesurf course and be BKSA / IKO level 2 certified or able to show a competent level of skill and riding ability. For anyone who hasn’t hired before, we require a quick assessment before allowing you on the water. This takes around 10 minutes. If you’re unable to demonstrate all the safety requirements, you would be asked to take a private lesson with an instructor before being able to rent equipment.


You must hold your own third party liability insurance which you can purchase by joining the BKSA with an annual membership. We suggest purchasing this even if you don’t intend to hire but continue with kitesurfing after lessons as it covers you for up to £5 million in 3rd party liability (if you crash your kite on someone or it blows into a 3rd party causing damage or injury)

We also offer insurance for accidental equipment damage for £10 per day

Please bring a recognised form of ID and bank card when hiring the equipment.

Tide Times

Kite rental times are dependent on the tides and need booking in advance, so please check our online booking system which shows what times are available each day through the season. Kitesurfing at Camber is restricted at high tide due to space restrictions and the detriment this has on safety.
