I decided to give kitesurfing a go. The lessons were well run and I learned a lot about kitesurfing in 2 days! Our instructor Robbie is very knowledgeable and made sure we covered all the basics to be safe in the water. I feel I made good progress thanks to excellent instruction. Would definitely recommend!

Wanted to give kitesurfing a go for a while, recently took the plunge and did the two-day course. Had to split it over a couple of weekends so had two different instructors but they were both excellent. Great fun even when you're splashing around getting the hang of it, and by the end of day two I'd made enough progress... More

Went on the 2 day lesson in May 2014. Instructors Dave, John and Justin were all very friendly and helpful. Fortunately the wind was good all weekend so got two really useful sessions in -body-dragging on day 1 and board starts on day 2. Didn't actually manage to get up on the board (without falling off!) but the experience was... More

Great place to learn kitesurfing, the staff are amazing and so genuine. I've done many different courses and to do this was an adventure but these guys make everything simple. Very well laid out, safe and enjoyable course! Do this and sack others! These guys know their apples!

Just completed the 2 day course. David is superb, an excellent instructor and coach. Inspiring and patient. Kitesurfing is fantastic - don't spend time thinking about doing it, go now, and learn with these guys.

My wife bought me a one-day TryKiteSurfing voucher for christmas - finally got round to using it today. What a great experience! David is a top bloke and very patient. By the end of the afternoon I'd managed to stand up a couple of times and really enjoyed the whole day. Learnt a lot about the equipment and sport and... More

Really good laugh and an amazing experience this 2 days course. David is an absolute star as an instructor really patient and helpful. The guys are a good link to have after the course if you want to continue with kitesurfing. Really professional and passionate for the sport. The beach is helping a lot as it is really shallow and...

You will have a top laugh with the instructors who clearly have a passion for their kitesurfing and they pass all that energy on to you as you learn they constantly push you on at a good rate and you make amazing progress in a short space of time. The Instructors have given me great advice for continuing kiting after... More

I was down taking picture of the kitesurfers at the end of last year. The instructors were very approachable and friendly taking time out to talk to me and help me a) not get in the way and b) be safe. Very professional outfit. Hoping to go back this year as a kitesurfing student.
