Kitesurfing

Kitesurfing is a well established watersport, its safety improved immeasurably since its pioneering days in the late nineties. Due to become an Olympic sport for 2024, we are proud to be the National Sailing Academy’s kitesurfing partner and will be teaching it in a very controlled and safe manner, well downwind of most recreational water-users in the harbour.

Kitesurf Courses

Kitesurfing is an eye-catching sport that has redefined how watersports are learnt today, proving that tuition not only accelerates the learning process, but ensures you learn in a safe manner for both yourself and other water users. Our tuition is provided by qualified BKSA instructors, with the water sessions based from a RIB, well downwind of other users. This not only gives you peace of mind that you won’t be getting in other people’s way, it also enables you to concentrate fully on the task in hand without any distractions.

Tuition ratios are kept to an absolute minimum to ensure you have the instructor’s undivided attention.
