Kiteboarding in the UK?

Post by Michael » Mon May 13, 2013 11:57 am

So while 'revising' I've been watching loads of kiteboarding videos and now i fancy a crack at it.

Unfortunately i don't have the funds to buy a new setup, kite, harness and whatever else you need :(

Any ideas where i could have a go without having to get loads of new gear?

Come on over to Essex any time and I'll show you the basics. If you want to learn properly Essex Kite Park will teach you with their gear.

If the forecast is looking reasonable for the Bradbury Clumps DH remind me and I will chuck a few kites in the car.

Where are you based? I'm sure I can find someone local to take you for a fly.

Hey, I recently got my new 6m Ozone Fury kite from someone at PKF! be sure to visit powerkite forums. Get a second-hand kite for your first kite for sure. You'll crash it often.

Camber sands could be a good option for you too. Plenty of friendly folk down there. Also can check out racekites.com and kitecrowd.com too. Kitecrowd has more surfers but plenty of landies too. Beware of the sarcasm there though ;)
