KIDS

CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE OF KITEBOARDING, AND WE ENJOY HELPING THEM GET INTO THE SPORT THAT WE LOVE

 

Understanding that they learn differently, we operate a child specific program over weekends, evenings and the school holidays. 

 

Available for 12-16 year olds, our specially trained coaches follow a tailored syllabus to get young riders ripping across the water safely, through a fun and fast learning program. 

  • Broken down into four 2.5 hour bite size modular sessions, our Kids' Kite Course course will cover all the skills required to reach a level of independence and complete safety awareness. Starting each module with a classroom session, the first day will be spent learning beach controls and equipment familiarisation.

  • We’ll then move into the water to begin kite powered body dragging, learning directional control whilst skimming along the surface. Having mastered the kite, they’ll be ready for the board in session three, where they’ll initially learn to retrieve it, before mastering the art of putting the board on themselves. We aim to have them up and riding self sufficiently by the end of session four.
