Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Last weekend 2nd - 3rd Nov, I traveled up to Porthcawl in Wales to run a kitesurf wave clinic organised by Blast Kiteboarding and local legend Marc Rowley.
Despite being blown off the water saturday afternoon, we had some great conditions (especially on my dawnie at the point!) and everyone learnt lots.
For a full write up & pics check out Marc's blog -
Pretty pleased with the feedback (see below) and Marc is already talking about another one in Wales in the spring. If you would like a Wave Clinic at you spot please get in touch.
My next planned clinic is in Cape Town mid Jan 2014. Details TBC
Or join me on a Pasty Adventures coaching holiday to Dakhla, Morocco in March. Freeride on the lagoon week 1, waves on the point week 2. Come for 1 week, 2 weeks or mix it up and have 1 week of coaching plus however many days you want on holiday in this kitesurf oasis.
Details on the website http://www.pastyadventures.co.uk/dakhla.html
Thanks to Marc & Sarah for organising the Wales Clinic. See you again soon ;)
A fantastic weekend.
I've been kitesurfing for 8 years.
And waveriding for I reckon 6 years.
The point is Lee has been doing it for twice as long and has been pushing the boundaries of waveriding in the UK since the start.
To listen to Lee during the hurricane was pure gold dust. I learnt more in that 3 hours than in 3 years of getting yanked around at Llangennith.
Got some bad old habits that require some attention, but I know what to work on now.
Good to here that Lee will return and I'll look forward to that.
Book early to avoid disappointment. Think it might be oversubscribed.
Thanks to Lee, Marc and Sarah.
Awesome weekend with a great bunch. I've only been using a surf board for a few weeks and have learned so much. Theory was explained in simple terms and demonstrated by Lee so well, he made everything look so simple, if only it was. I realise now that using a surf board strapless or with, is something that will take time and perseverance so if you see me in the water rather than on it you know what I'm up to. I would definitely do another clinic with Lee and recommend it to anyone looking to improve their riding.. Also thanks to Blast for setting it up and for the beach commentary whilst Lee was doing his thing in the waves..
Lee was great, he took us from the position of an absolute beginner at wave riding (me) through to the technical aspects of board shape and even fin selection - a side of wave riding I didn't even know existed!
So sorry I couldn't attend both days, but just from yesterday I found lots of knowledge and inspiration to work on.
Thanks To Blast for organising a great event.
Finally mid October has produced some amazing Kitesurf conditions here in Cornwall. South swell and mostly south winds has seen some epic jumping sessions and teaching days at Marazion while Gwithian has been perfect for getting into waveriding with cross shore winds and waist to head high waves. This weekend we had 3 guys on a private wave coaching weekend and they all learnt lots, going from struggling to get out on sat morning to riding down the line by sunday afternoon. Great to see and even better that they all had the North Whip after my recommendations as it really is the best kitesurf production board out there ;)
Coming into the winter months we are still running beginner kitesurfing lessons in Cornwall right up until Christmas. We can also run private coaching or clinics in Waves or Twin Tip Freeride, check out whats available here and get in touch to discuss the best options for you.
In January and Feb we will be out in Cape Town and are available for Private coaching. Lee has been to the Cape for 4 winters so if you want to have a days guiding to get to know the spots or some coaching to improve while on your hols? Then we can help you out. Please email to discuss possible options.
In March we are running two Kitesurf Coaching weeks to Dakhla, Morocco.
Week 1 is Freeriding on the Lagoon with Week 2, Waves at the perfect right hand pointbreak of Oum Laboiur.
Price from £560 staying in the Ocean Spirit house, all meals, transfers etc. Excl. flights which are currently around £350. Limited space so be quick. Details here
Happy Kitesurfing and remember to stay safe, check your equipment and know your limits.
I hope to see you kitesurfing on a beach in Cornwall or on one of our Pasty Adventures kitesurf coaching holidays.
Lee 'Pasty' Harvey
Sorry for the delay but was hard as we sadly lost Jake who filmed and was going to produce the video.

News just in that Kiteracing is to be included in the 2018 Youth Olympics and highly likely to be in the Olympics for 2020 with inclusion in all Olympic Sailing regattas from next year 2014.
Great times to be involved and bring kiteracing to youngsters who will hopefully see how great it is and take up the fastest form of sailing as a sport ;)
