Torquay Kite School

Kitesurfing has a fast learning curve more so than say surfing or windsurfing. Technique is more important than strength, which is why there are so many youngsters and lightweight adults kitesurfing. We areBKSA approved and fully insured and offer lessons of the highest quality with our very experienced qualified instructor.We were one of the first – if not the first – BKSA all year round school to use a rigid hull inflatable to teach from. Using a boat means that we are not affected by tide or wind direction so much, and can move freely around the bay which is between 3-4 miles across. This means that our cancellation rate is lower than schools who don’t use boats.
