Kitebuggy and Landboarding
Kitebuggying and landboarding are excellent day out activities.
Designed for adults and children (8+) alike, in a group of up to six people you will spend three hours mastering how to fly a powerkite.
Then using your new skills to pull yourself along on our three-wheeled sand buggies, you can even give the landboard (giant sand skateboard) a go if you’re feeling confident!
Kite Buggy Lesson Outline
- Introduction, theory and safety briefing
- Powerkite setup
- Powerkite flying
- Advanced powerkite flying
Part 1 – Theory, Safety and Powerkite Flying
The first half of the lesson begins with kite flying safety, so you fully understand the sport and have a safe and enjoyable lesson.
Once covered, you’ll learn to do a site assessment and set up the power kites.
We will teach you how to launch them, fly them in a range of motions and land them; all in preparation for you to safely pull yourself along the sand, in your buggy, by the end of the lesson. Not bad in 3 hours eh?
Once you’ve got your kite control mastered you’re ready to put it to the test in the buggies!
Part 2 – Kite Buggying and / or Landboarding
Now that you have mastered kite flying, it’s time to try out the buggies and land boards!
After you gain confidence whizzing around, there’s the option to try out landboards, more complicated manoeuvres, try out a slalom course or race against your friends!
With an instructor by your side giving you tips along the way, you’ll soon be a competent buggier.
Part 3 – Lesson Debrief
Once your lesson is over you’ll head back to the centre to have a debrief with your instructor.
They’ll go through what you’ve covered, answer any questions and discuss what’s next.
If the instructor signs you off as safe to do the activity alone, you can come back to rent the kite buggy and landboard equipment and continue the fun.
Not for you?
