Learning to kitesurf will change your life – it’s as simple as that. After work sessions in the long summer evenings replace streaming the latest box set.
Weekend adventures out to the brooding winter waves of Ireland’s west coast or the mighty North coast replace Saturday afternoons in the pub – while tropical kite holidays to far flung destinations make lying by a pool a distant memory. For a kitesurfer, life is refreshingly void of dull moments.
Getting to this stage though does require a little effort. Kitesurfing is a surprisingly easy sport to learn but the initial stages can be daunting and dangerous without the tutelage and guidance of a suitably qualified and insured instructor.

We never want to stop a young enthusiast who’s passionate to get into kiting, but the sport does require a certain amount of mental maturity due to the safety and technical considerations. So, having met/discussed learning options with both child and parent, we can tailor a 1:1 program of training from any age. (Minimum requirement is 35kg body weight)
