Check out these latest couple of videos from recent sessions kitesurfing and windsurfing at Gwithian, Cornwall.
Remember we are No.1 for kitesurfing lessons as well as all watersports in Cornwall.
Gift Vouchers available for all courses.
Despite the crazy weather with torrential rain and hosepipe bans up country, its been almost perfect for learning to kitesurf down here in Cornwall.
With small waves and North to West winds, Gwithian has been amazing with all the beaches around St Ives bay offering up amazing kite conditions.
In the southerly winds we have been having, Marazion has been perfect, although some waves last week have stirred up a bit of weed making for some line tangles and the students learning about the importance of staying away from weed and cleaning your lines after your kitesurf session. The beach have now been cleaned by Cornwall Council who use the weed to fertilize the farms around Penzance.
With great winds forecast again all this week and the beaches pretty empty, there has been no better time to learn to kitesurf in Cornwall, so make the most of this summer and get in touch today to book in your extreme adventure with Pasty Adventures, West Cornwalls only British Kite Surfing Association recognised school.
We also pride ourselves on offering the best value kitesurf instruction in the UK concentrating on giving intimate instruction to the students. To do this we recommend 1:1 instruction so that you can learn at your own pace. We also offer the 'Learn with a friend' option for all of our kitesurf courses as kitesurfing is a really socialable sport and great to learn with your mates. 2:1 is the biggest class size we run, unlike most other schools who operate on a 4:1 basis. We believe this is unfair as you spend a lot of time hanging around and we want you to learn quickly, while having an amazing time and feeling like you are getting amazing value. Kitesurfing is an expensive sport to learn but we feel it is worth every penny and want you to feel this right from your first lesson!
We can also sort you out with some great deals on new equipment thanks to local shop Westcountry Watersports in Truro and our sponsors North Kiteboarding so there has been no better time to get into the Worlds fastest growing extreme sport.
Lee is now back in Cornwall running kitesurfing lessons at Gwithian and Marazion after his 3 week adventure in Portugal for round 1 of the 2012 KSP World Tour.
Unfortunately the wind did'nt play ball after Lee dominated his Round 1 heat advancing straight to a round 3 match up with 2008 World Champ, Mitu Monteiro from Cape Verde. After hanging around all week, with the wind teasing and numerous heats starting and stopping, the event finally ended without a result as there were still 2 heats left to run in round 2.
Some great waves were had both surfing and kiting at some of Portugals numerous World class spots, with Lee making the most of being away from Cornwall in the sun and having the van to get around, taking with him some of the best kitesurfers and surfers in the World, such as Ozzie wiz kid, Keahi de Aboitiz and former ASP Top 44 surfer Pedro Henrique from Brasil.
Check out the small vid from the trip below.
Next up for the tour is Mauritius in September and you can be there amongst it while enjoying a week of top class coaching from Lee and 2011 womens One Eye Pro winner, Ninja the week before the event. More details in the Holiday pages

Check out this vid from the 2nd stop of the 2011 PKRA Kitesurf Wave World Tour featuring Lee Harvey.
Didin't win the event but got the best wave surfing 1:34 on the vid.
Well after all that coldness we now seem to be back to normal and have been in the water most days.
We've already had a couple of cracking south coast swells which saw loads of people surfing at Marazion while I scored some dredging barrels at Perranuthnoe.
Praa has been firing a couple of times and Leve has been fairly good when not too chunky and saw a sweet kite day.
Also been down Gwenver a few times as well as Gwithian, Towans and Perranporth. Lots of driving but its been worth it and nice and warm now its back above 10 degrees as its meant to be!
Be sure to like us on facebook and check out some of the pics from New Years Eve in St Ives, which was a blast as always.
If the weather keeps getting warmer we will soon be open again for wave clinics and intermediate/advanced coaching with beginner lessons starting when we return from Cape Verde.
See ya in the water!
