Kite Buggy Lessons
Duration 3 hours tuition Price – £69
Kite Buggying is a fantastically exhilarating sport perfect for adults and children (8+) alike, and is also great for those wanting to try out kitesports without heading into the water. Using a powerkite, the wind and a three-wheeled buggy, you can whizz along miles of Camber’s flat, sandy beach at up to 50mph. Learning to kite buggy is much easier than you might imagine, so if you’re looking for a short activity which is fun for all ages and abilities – kite buggying is a brilliant option!
If you have children that are too small to take part in the lesson, our two seater buggy is perfect, and you can book for them to take a ride with an instructor at the end of your lesson.
Kite Buggy Lesson Outline
- Introduction, theory and safety briefing
- Powerkite setup
- Powerkite flying
- Advanced powerkite flying
- Slalom / races (optional!)
Part 1 – Theory, Safety and Powerkite Flying
Kite Buggying is a super fun sport, but as with any sport there are risks, so it must be learnt and taught properly. The lesson begins with a brief run through of the the fundamentals of kitesurfing safety and theory so you fully understand the sport and have a safe and enjoyable lesson.
Once you’ve covered the safety and theory, you’ll head to the beach to do a site assessment and set up the powerkites. After this, it’s time to fly them!
You’ll put your theoretical knowledge of kite flying to the test as you learn to steer and loop the kite through the air. These static flying exercises give you experience in the most important part of any kite sport – kite control. Once you’ve got your kite control mastered you’re ready to put it to the test in the buggies!
Part 2 – Kite Buggying
Now that you have covered the kite flying part, it’s time to try out the buggies!
Transitioning into the buggies is easier than you’d think, and you’ll be whizzing along the beach in no time. You can choose how quickly (or slowly!) you’d like using the kite control techniques you learnt in the first part of the lesson.
As you gain confidence and ability, there’s the option to try out bigger kites, more complicated manoeuvres and even try out a slalom course or race against your friends! With an instructor by your side giving 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, you can come back to rent the kite buggy equipment for just £15/h or £45 for a day!
