FAQs

Q. What Kitesurf Lessons would you recommend for a complete Beginner?

If you want to find out if the sport is for you then our 1-Day course is a great place to start. For a more detailed introduction into kite flying and to give a real head start before water based lessons then we would recommend our introductory land based course. We have found that students then progress fastest when the tuition can be tailored to their individual needs once we get on the water and usually recommend private 1:1 tuition for water based lessons.

Q. What Paddleboard course would you recommend for a complete Beginner?

If you want to simply have a taste of the sport then our 2hr paddleboard taster course is a great option. It’s designed to get you standing up straight away giving and to give you all of the fun bits of the sport. For those wanting to get in to the sport and continue paddling on their own we recommend our 2 hr ready to ride course. As well as being lots of fun it includes some theory on important things to know before heading out alone.

Q. How many Kitesurf lessons do i need before I can go out on my own?

This is a tricky one to answer as everyone learns at different speeds but as an absolute minimum you should have a minimum of 3 lessons. A great option following your course with us is to consider taking some supervised rental. That way you don’t have to commit to buying equipment right away and will be under the watchful eye of an instructor.

Q. What equipment do I need to bring along?

We provide absolutely everything but we recommend you bring along your own wetsuit shoes or boots. These are available to buy on the day from our shop base if you don’t already have your own. We do have pairs we can lend out if required and footwear is mandatory on our Kitesurf lessons and recommended on our paddleboard lessons. We also recommend a towel, Suncream, and food and drink.

Q. Can I bring my own equipment to use on the lesson?

Absolutely! We actively encourage students to bring along any equipment they may already own. We tend to begin on ours as we know it works but it’s important that you use your kit during your lessons at some stage. This way your instructor can check it’s appropriate for your level and make sure it’s working as it should.
