Beginners Kitesurfing Lesson


We understand that kitesurfing can look a bit intimidating and that lessons are quite a big commitment of time and money. That’s why we offer a taster session to people who are interested in learning how to kitesurf. Graykite’s beginners kitesurfing lesson is ideal for people who think learning to kitesurf looks fun but aren’t 100% sure they want to commit 100% before they’ve given it a try.

If you want to learn, all you need to do is turn up with a towel – we’ll provide everything else. You’ll get an explanation of the wind window, an introduction to safety procedures, learn how a power kite works, then learn to fly a trainer kite. Next you’ll get a taste of a bigger leading edge inflatable kite, the type we use for kitesurfing. Depending on how fast you progress, we might even get you in the water and body dragging in your first couple of hours.

Our taster course is a quick, safe and enjoyable way to find out if kitesurfing is for you. We hope you’ll come away from your lesson with a love for the sport we care about so much. And if you do, we hope you keep up the lessons and learn to ride free as the wind!

I’ve been learning kitesurfing slowly for the past year, and have had short lessons from various people. I really enjoy the sport, but my progress had always been quite slow because of the gaps between lessons, and I found that most of my lesson time was taken up remembering what I’d forgotten from last time!

Gray turned all that around – within a couple of hours he’d taught me proper bar control, and actually got me up on the board and riding. After months of body dragging lessons I was so delighted to actually do it properly. And he’s a lovely guy.

I’ve bought my own kit now and I’m looking forward to the summer and many happy days on the water, I can’t recommend Gray and the team highly enough.Thank you Gray for doing what nobody else could do and actually getting me kitesurfing!

My girlfriend and me are just starting and Gray helped us to improve within hours! He showed us some very valuable ‘standing up’ tips on land that we could use on the water straight away. We Highly recommended this teacher.
