Learn to kitesurf
Learn to kitesurf with some of the world's most experienced kitesurf instructors within an hour or so of London. Our location at Meon Shore, Hill Head between Portsmouth and Southampton gets more wind than most places on the south coast, making it one of the UK's great places to kiteboard. We teach beginner kitesurfing courses right up to IKO kitesurf instructor level, tailoring our kiteboarding lessons around your own skills and progression.
Kitesurfing taster day £110
A full-on kitesurfing experience day. Power yourself through the water with the kite and get a real feeling for this exciting sport. We think it's important that you get as much time in the water having fun on your kitesurfing taster day. So we don't cover self-rescue techniques on the 1 day kitesurf course, which you will need to cover before you go kitesurfing on your own. But if you get the bug, you can always upgrade to a 2 or 3 day course to cover everything you need to become an independent kitesurfer.
2 day kitesurfing course £210
The two day kitesurfing course covers all the elements you need to become an independent kitesurfer. Get up on the board and learn the self-rescue techniques. Aim to achieve IKO/BKSA level 1 2.
3 day kitesurfing course £300
Become self sufficient as a kitesurfer, with the confidence to continue safely on your own. The 3 day course gives you the opportunity to really nail getting up on the board, and become familiar enough with the equipment to feel safe to set up and go out on your own. Aim to achieve IKO/BKSA Level 2.
Extra kitesurfing days £95
If you want to continue with your kitesurfing lessons after your three day course with us to develop your skills and confidence, we can add extra days to suit you.
Kitesurfing progression day £105
If you have had lessons elsewhere that you want to build on, or you just want to improve an element of your riding, come along for a day and we will progress your skills from whatever level you have already reached.
1 to 1 sessions £105 for two hours, £25 per extra half hour
If you want to fastrack your learning or have limited spare time to spend on your kitesurfing lessons, one to one sessions may be the answer for you. Have your own highly experienced and expert kitesurf instructor focus their full attention on you. Usually only available during the week, but worth checking if you want to come at the weekend. We have found that two hours is usually the optimum learning time for one to one sessions, but if you are having so much fun and are not completely tired out after two hours, we can run for extra time if bookings and conditions allow.

What to bring
We provide all equipment including wetsuits and safety gear. But if you have your own, bring wetsuit and booties. You then just need to bring your swimming gear to wear under the wetsuit, a towel, some warm clothes and sunscreen, etc. Everything you would expect for a day at a Great British beach, depending on the weather. Something to eat and drink would be good for some extra energy and in case you end up drinking some salt water!
Where to meet
We meet at our beach location at Hill Head. Click here for directions to our kitesurfing spot.
No wind no pay
If there is no wind or too much wind on the day of your course we will rebook a time that suits you or refund any unused lesson time if you can't come back. You will never lose any lesson time. We believe you should get real value from your lessons, so if the conditions mean you are not going to progress or get the most out of your session, we won't waste your time and charge you for it.
We ask you to call the night before or the morning of your kitesurf lesson to check conditions. This will save you a wasted journey if you have a long way to travel, and the wind is not going to be good. We will then rebook to another time.
Fair cancellation policy
If you cancel your booked session and we can fill your place we will refund your deposit or rebook your date. If we can't fill your place and have previously turned other students away because of your booking, you may forfeit your deposit. If the wind doesn't blow, or blows too much to be safe to teach, we will postpone your lesson to another day that suits you. If you can't come back, we will refund any unused lesson time.
