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.

Waterproofs and also sunglasses, sun hat and sun cream, and lots of water to avoid dehydration (it can get very hot at the field and it can also rain and get muddy) old clothes and shoes with smooth soles for scudding on the grass. It is very advisable not to wear shorts or sandals.
For the water
Winter wetsuit, boots, helmet, harness, if you have them, if not these will be supplied. We also supply buoyancy aids.
You will need a packed lunch for both days, as there are no shops near the field, near the beach there are cafes, etc, but most are seasonal, a towel will also be very handy although you can always borrow our Bombura changing robe if you forget.
