Kitesurfing School at Camber Sands
The Kitesurf Centre is the only school at Camber with a full teaching license and designated teaching zone. Established in 2007, the school has taught thousands of students to kitesurf over the years and is now the largest kitesurfing school in the UK. It is also the only BKSA National Training Centre, responsible for teaching new instructors each year.
The school has a team of highly experienced instructors, a huge range of equipment for hire and the use of two differently facing beaches, meaning The Kitesurf Centre is able to teach lessons every day regardless of wind direction, unlike most kitesurf schools in the UK.
In addition to kitesurfing lessons, The Kitesurf Centre also offers powerkiting, kitebuggying, landboarding, stand up paddleboard and hydrofoiling lessons. Lessons can be taught as both group classes and private tuition as well as part of super fun activity days combining sports and beach games for stag and hen dos, corporate groups and schools. The centre also runs coaching and demo days with brand reps, qualified coaches and pro riders.
The Kitesurf Centre’s instructors are amongst some of the most highly trained and experienced instructors in the UK. Each instructor has either a Level 1 or Level 2 BKSA qualification as well as attending specific training sessions run by The Kitesurf Centre throughout the year.
Dedicated to ensuring your safety and your enjoyment during out lessons, the instructors will be by your side the entire time with support, encouragement and tips to help you get the most out of every session.
Kite Beach at Camber Sands is well known for being one of the beast kiting beaches in the country. The sandy, shallow shelving with flat water lagoons make the ideal conditions for beginners and advanced riders alike. Camber boasts the best wind stats in the country and experiences some of the highest average temperatures in the UK throughout summer.
Nearby Greatstone is used as a secondary beach and is similar to Camber (though even bigger) with a long stretch of flat water and beach. Having two beaches facing in different directions allows us to teach in any wind direction, something very few other schools can offer.
The Kiting Zones
Camber Sands has dedicated zones for kiters. They are permitted to use the eastern end of the beach from the chequered flag to the MOD base towards Dungeness, which is marked with a hut and red flag. This is around 1 mile of open beach. Power kite flyers can use all of the beach (3 miles). Our kitesurf school runs kitesurfing lessons at the eastern end of Camber Sands in a dedicated teaching zone. This is out the way of the crowds, swimmers and beach users. The school operates the kitebuggy, landboard and power kite lessons at the western end of the kiting zone.
