Why not learn to kite surf when I go abroad on holiday rather than in Wales?
If you learn to kitesurf abroad you will not learn about the conditions at your local kite spot and meet the local kiteboarders. Often people go abroad to learn kiteboarding only to come back frustrated when the windy location they went to had too much wind for learning or not enough wind. Its very addictive when you start kite surfing you cant stop looking for wind.
With Pro Kiteboarding Wales your instructor’s first language is English.
Often we see kitesurf schools teaching people in unsuitable conditions, as they know you are only on holiday for a week or two and need to get your money from you before you go home. Beginners have little chance of learning in extreme wind and sea conditions. We only teach kitesurfing lessons when its ideal conditions for you to learn.
Our locations are ideally suited to learning as they do not have large shore breaks (dumps/grinders) for you to contend with.
What should I bring along to the kiteboarding lesson?
You'll need trainers or sturdy footwear and maybe a waterproof coat if it looks like it might by showery for the land tuition. You might want to bring a snack or a drink. You should bring a towel and sunscreen too. For water based kite surfing lessons we'll supply all you need; wetsuit, kite, harness, helmet board and buoyancy aid so don't worry all this equipment will be supplied if necessary.
If you have your own wetsuit, booties, harness, helmet, buoyancy aid then your welcome to bring them.
