BKSA Training Centre

We specialise in Kitesurfing, Windsurfing, Surfing and the popular new sport of Stand Up Paddlesurfing. We are a fully certified BKSA and RYA centre and have been teaching Kitesurfing for 10+ years at West Wittering beach. Kitesurfing is one of the most exciting watersports around and we teach you on the best equipment. Our aim is to ensure your safety and we want you to learn fast and progress. We have the latest 2010 RRD Bow kites and new RRD boards, so you will find the kiting experience really easy. We also have nice, toasty winter suits and boots for you to use. On site all our coaches are linked from the land by radio, we have jet ski rescue and the teaching area we use is a shallow, tidal waist deep lagoon. When you have finished your course we have hot showers, changing rooms and tea and coffee facilities. Once you have finished the course we have a hire package and further lesson options so you dont need necessarily to buy the kit – alternatively we have a range of kite packages available if you do decide to buy. We can teach kids kitesurfing from 12+ our kite range starts from 3m up to 12m so whatever the wind throws at us we can deal with the conditions! We would recommend if you are coming on a kite course you should do either a powerkite course before so you have a good understanding of kite flying skills so not to waist time when you are learning kitesurfing Opening times: 7 days a week from March until October
