The Weymouth and Portland Kite Surf Club was formed by an enthusiastic band of kitesurfers back in the day to protect the beaches of Weymouth bay and Portland Harbour for the use by kitesurfers.
The area it covers presently includes Portland Harbour and all beaches in the Weymouth Bay area (Town Beach/Old Pier bandstand , Skatepark , Overcombe) and Ringstead bay.
The WPKSC is a British Kitesports Affiliated Club
The joining fee is £5 direct through the BKSA membership process. (Your club membership will however only run the duration of your BKSA membership) – You can join direct if you are a BKSA member already have a look at the website
Membership includes invitations to social events, discounts on training/coaching sessions, access to club speed boards and GPS.
Riding in Portland Harbour requires valid kitesurfing insurance and a permit.
This is because the harbour is private property and is owned by the Portland Port Authority.
To ensure kitesurfing remains open we have negotiated the permit scheme with the port authority to ensure access to all who have appropriate insurance.
2014 Permits purchased through the Club also cover you for Windsurfing, SUP, Kayak activities in the harbour.
The 2014 Permit Tariff is:-
Annual (1st Jan – 31st Dec 2014) – £29.75
Seasonal (1st April – 31st October 2014) – £20.85
