INTRODUCTION TO KITE FOIL BOARDING
£150 for 2 hours 1-1 with Senior BKSA instructor.
(plus £10 weekend supplement per lesson payable on the day if booked for Saturday, Sunday or bank holiday)
I'm also a BKSA register foiling instructor. I deliver the BKSA foiling level 1 syllabus.
Kite foiling is a total game-changer allowing you to kite when you would otherwise be sitting on the beach. Get into this amazing aspect of our sport!
I regularly kitefoil in 10knots using my 12m Emotion kite.
Included in your lesson:
Use of all foil boards and foils, helmet, impact vest.
Beautiful quiet location with on-site facilities
BB Talkin' 2 way radio headsets
Follow up buying advice for your first foil setup
Exclusive deals on RRD, Moses and F-one foils
Optional extra (£10):
Video Coaching and feedback
Photos and video clips of your experience to share (downloadable)
(See Video T&Cs for details)
For the lesson, we will be using the fantastic F-One IC6 850 foil with the F-One 51TS board.
A perfect combo for learning.
To reduce the variables you will use your own kites.
Minimum skill requirement:
You will be a competent and confident kitesurfer able to kite out of your depth, ride upwind, recover your board in deep water and be able to do at least a slide transition. You will also be familiar with how to self-rescue.
Good light wind kite flying skills are also a bonus but we can work on this.
