2 Hour Kitesurfing Intro Lesson

Bracklesham
kite - Up to 1 person

Description

Introduction


The 2 hour group intro kitesurfing course is designed for people that have had zero or very little experience with kitesurfing.


Course duration is 2 hours & is a great option for people new to the sport who would like to take the first steps in regards to safely getting into this amazing sport


The price is set at £120 for up to 12 people so the more you have in the group the more you'll save..


However, conversely the less people you have also means you'll gain more, as your instructor will be able to expand on detail, correct your mistakes more readily & give you more practice during the 2 hours so a win win whichever way you look at it.


To book this awesome experience we simply ask that one person is responsible for the payment ( £120 ) & we will then collect names and do forms for whoever else you bring (up to a maximum of 12 persons in your group)
