If you are a complete beginner or intermediate level we offer 1:1 kitesurfing tuition to all abilities.​

Block book and save money – our packages are ideal if you’re looking to progress at a faster rate than our group curses.​

Complete beginnersWe suggest you book the 6h or 9hr package as there’s lots to cover and learn, in our experience 2hrs just isn’t enough time to establish enough progression.,

Just finished your course –  If you have recently completed a kitesurfing course with us and need to perfect the board starts you will definitely progress with some 1:1.​

Purchased some new equipment – We can help set up your new equipment and make sure you are 100% satisfied with the safety systems etc.​

Progression Session – Perfect for if you prefer concentrated 1:1 tuition with an instructor by your side, where the pace of learning is at your own speed.​

Need a refresher – Perhaps it’s been a while and it’s time to dust off the kiteboard and get back on the water.  1:1 tuition is the best way to ease yourself back into the sport without making silly mistakes.

As with all our kitesurfing courses all equipment is provided. For 1:1 lessons students can use their own kit however, the instructor will have to check and be happy with all the equipment before it is used.
