Surfing & Windsurfing Southport
information Venue Details
Kitesurfing, also known as kiteboarding, involves using a power kite to pull a rider through the water on a small surfboard or a kiteboard. A kitesurfer uses a board with foot-straps or bindings, combined with the power of a large controllable kite to propel themselves and the board across the water. The sport is still in its infancy, but is rapidly growing in popularity. The sport is very safe due to innovations in kite design, safety release systems, and instruction. Many riding styles have evolved to suit different types of riders and conditions, such as wake style, wave riding, freestyle, jumping, and cruising.
Our Southport kite surfing location can be found near plenty of cafes and shops where you can buy snacks, whilst our site itself has ample parking. Full training will be offered to all participants, with equipment hire included in your booking fee.
