  • You will get up and riding quicker with proper instruction and in the long run you will save time and money too as your instructor will be able to advise you on the right equipment to buy.
  • British Kitesports qualified instructors and the British Kitesports training scheme are renowned as among the best in the world
  • Most people can be up and riding after a 3 day course at an approved BKSA school
