Welcome to Nomadic Kitesurf

We specialise in offering courses on either a private 1:1 basis, or semi private 2:1 basis, and run everything from 2 hour taster sessions, to a 20 hour course. We also offer bespoke courses for larger groups including Hen and stag parties and school groups.

Our kitesurfing lessons, kitesurfing holidays & SUP lessons are taught by hand-picked experienced instructors.

All our lessons take place within the safety of a large lagoon that is free from crowds.

Visit us at Calshot Spit on the edge of the New Forest.  

 

 

During the summer we are based at 24-7 Boardsports, an established watersports shop that’s situated on the shores of the Solent at Calshot. This unique spit of land that’s almost totally surrounded by water offers some of the best Kitesurf and Paddleboarding conditions on the south coast. Large lagoons combined with reliable sea breezes produce perfect conditions for learning to Kitesurf whilst paddleboarders will love cruising along the sheltered waterways and exploring the nearby beauty of the New Forest National park.

During the winter months we escape the UK and working alongside local schools are able to offer bespoke coaching holidays to some of our favourite winter destinations.

What They Say …

Paul’s teaching style is superb – he’s clearly passionate about the sport and loves getting people going. Best instructor I’ve encountered in any sport – ever.
Mark Howells
Attended the 3 day kitesurfing course at Calshot , 1 week trip to Tarifa (Spain) and am having ad-hoc lessons. Paul is very passionate about the sport and has a great team of experienced instructors, where safety always comes first. Offering group or 1:1 tuition with all equipment included, radio helmets great help while in the water. Paul offers several weekend trips a year within the UK and also abroad to places like Spain (Tarifa) and Kenya, this is a great way to meet new like-minded people and progress quickly on the board.

I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for an amazing trip to Kenya. For me, the trip was a huge success, from the amazing hotel through to the fantastic level of instruction. In fact, I got so much out of it I have already booked for 2021!
Phil Jenkins
Paul is a very experienced instructor who you can’t help feel safe with. He really cares about creating the best experience for each individual he teaches and has certainly found a niche for himself in the 1-1 market.
Lucy Stacey
Having had some excellent training with Nomadic Kitesurf at Calshot I jumped at the chance to go on their 1st overseas kitesurf holiday to Tarifa, Spain. All in all a fantastic active holiday. Would I do it again? Yes I already have and I plan to go again.My thanks go to Paul for the thought and effort he has put into these trips and his excellent instructors who share their experience and passion for the sport.
Steve Crook
The Nomadic instructors are a really professional and experienced bunch who always put safety first while helping you progress your skills as quickly as possible. Paul is the most genuine guy you could ever wish to meet and always makes sure to give good value for money whatever lesson, class or holiday you take with Nomadic. The best and only school to choose on the South Coast!
Jonathan Lawrence
I did a weeks course in Tarifa in November with Nomadic. Great instruction with top quality equipment. Paul, the owner really puts the effort in to make sure everyone gets the most out of the course and enjoys it. Highly recommend.
Larry L
I had several lessons with Paul and the team at Nomadic, great set up with top gear and the use of the radio headsets is great as you have constant instruction at all times. Great emphasis on safety whilst still ensuring you progress. The passion for the sport from Nomadic is clear as I have been down several times on my own and Nomadic have been there and kindly given me some helpful pointers to keep me progressing, even going as far as to help me with my kite set up and showing my family how to help me launch. Top quality lessons from a great team, all is left is to get myself on one of the kiting holidays they do 🙂 Thanks Nomadic and Paul keep up the great work.
Luke B
Paul had our 14 year old up and riding in no time. Calm and patient, easy to follow instructions with the headsets. A great school in a great location. We’ll use him again for sure.
Philip S
I would recommend the five day kitesurfing course to any beginner. Paul is an excellent instructor and had me up on the board after three days. The extra two days were really useful to build my confidence and ability to a level where I’m happy to practice independently.
Rob Oxley
Paul is very encouraging, yet challenges the student by asking questions to check understanding, and takes the safety of you and other beach users very seriously. My son wore a radio, as did Paul, and I had a radio on the shore too so could hear the lesson going on. He enjoyed it so much that he is now going to do a ‘supervised hire’ to get some practice in whilst being under the watchful eye of someone from Nomadic. The ‘lagoon’ is a really safe place to learn in, and Calshot has great facilities so you can spend the day there or even camp overnight. Now my younger son wants to do the same course next year!
Ali K
An excellent group of instructors, passionate and enthusiastic about the sport. Calshot beach is a great place to learn, friendly and helpful people in 24-7 Boardsports. Paul’s holidays and mini trips are a lot of fun and a superb way to progress quickly. I’ve had lessons with other people before but Paul is the first to use helmets with radios, what a breakthrough! I’ve been on 3 holidays and about to go on my fourth with these peeps. I can’t wait!
Jeri Young
Paul explained everything to me, and it was obvious from the start that this was a professional and well constructed lesson. At no point did I feel unsafe and Paul put me at ease straight away. All his instructions were clear and understandable. It is obvious that Paul loves this sport and just wants people out on the water.
Alex Wickens
Paul is a fantastic teacher, relaxed and calm he is full of great advice and knows how to help you progress quickly. I thoroughly recommend him.
Charlie Clift
Paul is a great kite surf teacher. Would definitely recommend Nomadic Kitesurf, whether you’ve never done it before and need a friendly, professional and enthusiastic introduction.
Rebecca Harrison
Well… 1 Hen do with 8 excited and nervous ladies ranging from mid 20s to mid 50s. 5 British, 3 Russian. We had a great time even though 2 ladies didn’t speak a word of English. Paul and Ben are professional and calming who share their love of Water sports with everyone.
Becky Lissaman
Paul was super patient and encouraging (even when the wind dropped and the kite fell and got caught up in loads of seaweed!) and even managed to get some footage on his Ipad. I felt totally safe and picked up some great tips – so thank you!
Karen Kerrigan
I can confidently say that Paul is the best coach/instructor I have had (for any sport) and would highly recommend him. Everything is explained at the right pace in a clear and easy to understand way.
James Gould
Paul’s tuition is fantastic; he makes sure that it is a safe environment to learn in, which gives you the confidence to focus on what you are doing.
Dave Reed
Great spot, friendly staff and other kiters, I’ll definitely be back down Calshot this summer!
Jamie Gathercole
A really relaxed atmosphere with friendly instructors – always felt in safe hands! A great thing to do with a group of friends
Jo Skinner
I learned the basics with Nomadic at Calshot and then went on the Tarifa trip in 2016 where I progressed to being able to get up on the board
Nicholas Coll
Thanks Maria, thanks Paul, for introducing me to my something new, and life is not such a crisis after all! PS: Thanks for sending me the photos, if there were 10 stars, I would give you both 5 each!
Linda Bratcher
Incredibly professional well run outfit. Paul was super accommodating in arranging lessons around my work schedule.
Patrick Routly
Paul and Johnny are both great instructors. What I appreciated most was their willingness to listen and adjust their teaching style to the student.
