The Kitesurf Centre

The Kitesurf Centre was created by two highly experienced BKSA senior instructors to provide the finest level of kite surfing tuition in the South East of England, run from a centre on the beach at Camber Sands, East Sussex, near Rye. Our location not only offers superior wind conditions to any location on the south or east coast but also the unique position of having an abundance of the latest equipment right at your fingertips.


We at The Kitesurf Centre pride ourselves in having a selection of the most experienced and highly regarded instructors in the UK. All are BKSA, first aid and powerboat trained.


Our centre and shop is located on Camber Sands beach, around 1 hour from south London.centre 1 It’s no secret that Camber Sands is the finest beach for kite surfing and water sports in the southeast with 4 miles of open sand and relatively flat sea conditions. We are fortunate enough to have our new centre right on it offering the ideal location for a kitesurf school. It provides free parking, onsite changing rooms, classroom and an abundance of the latest equipment in sizes XXS – XXXL. The centre offers a relaxed comfortable atmosphere concealed from the often-ideal windy elements. Greatstone – Being located on a peninsular offers us beaches facing in two directions meaning we can use almost any wind direction for lessons and its still blowing onshore. Greatstone near New Romney is a 10-mile stretch of sand in a beautiful rural location. The huge tidal range offers ideal learning conditions with super flat shallow water.


Despite the name, The Kitesurf Centre actually offers a range of courses on both the land and water, from complete beginner up to expert.
