INTRODUCTION TO KITE FOIL BOARDING

£120 for 2 hours 1-1 with Senior BKSA instructor. 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

  • Free Parking

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.
