The second day of this course goes on to cover more complex bodydragging techniques, board starts and continuous riding while keeping the power in the kite. 100% practical and great as a weekend break. If you have completed a 1 Day course elsewhere or have flown power kites and covered body dragging previously, you are welcome to join this course.
3 Day Kitesurfing Lessons
Course duration: 18 hours total

The first two days of this course follow the same outline as the 1 and 2 day courses (above) and it then offers another full day on the board to really master the board start and go on to controlled edging, upwind riding and turns. If you’re keen to take up the sport we recommend the three day kitesurfing lesson as it gives the time to become confident and independent.
5 Day Kitesurfing – Zero to Hero Course
Our zero to hero course takes you from a complete beginner to a confident kitesurfer able to continue the sport independently. The first 3 days cover a similar syllabus to the 1, 2 and 3 day kitesurfing courses (above) with the following 2 days moving on to advanced equipment tuning, detailed theory, board control in various conditions, turns and basic jumps.
Board Control – Kitesurfing Lessons

Kitesurfing Coaching – Intermediate & Advanced
Course duration: 3-4 hours
As well as beginner courses we also offer more advanced coaching sessions. Have you ever found that you come back from a session having just cruised up and down without trying out anything new? With an experienced coach by your side to push you and impart their knowledge to aid your progression you will improve quicker than expected! We run both intermediate and advanced coaching days.
Course duration: Any length

Private lessons for any level and any sport, have an instructor to yourself and learn at your own pace for maximum progression in the minimum amount of time. With high quality 2 way radios our instructors can give you real time tips and support even if you’re an advanced rider kiting away from your instructor, and you can ask questions whenever you’d like rather than having to wait until you’ve ridden back to them.
Course duration: 2 / 3 hours
Cost: 2 hours – £150, 3 hours – £225
For the experienced kitesurfer looking for their next adventure, hydrofoiling lessons are perfect. Suitable for more advanced riders, with experience on a directional or surf board preferable. Learning to hydrofoil is a whole new ball game, so if it is your first lesson we recommend booking 3 hours to allow for time going through the different technique used. If you’re a proficient kitesurfer and you’re ready to try something completely new, this is the lesson for you!
