Interested in learning to kitesurf in Cornwall but not sure if you want to spend the money?
Then come along to the Pasty Cup, British Kitesurfing Racing Championships over the bank holiday weekend 25th - 26th may 2013 at Marazion near Penzance.
Over the course of the weekend you can check out the country's top kitesurfers and have a go at powerkite flying with our free kite taster sessions. Alongside the free lessons from qualified BKSA kitesurfing instructors we will also have plenty going on from our sponsors, including marine conservation info from the National Marine Aquarium, clothing on display from Hager-Vor and competitions to win great prizes as well as plenty of giveaways from Cornwall Tourism. We will also have Philps pasties available.
See you on Marazion beach in front of the Station House pub from 10am - 6pm both days.
We still have a couple of spaces left on our exciting Kite Surfari to Boa Vista next month. If anyone is interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org asap as flight prices are changing all the time and with a max number of 6 people, we don't want you to miss out.
Full details of the trip can be found here or simply go to our Holidays page.
Check out what we can expect in the video below from Edge watersports latest trip to Boa Vista.

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.

Great conditions today for Kite Surfing at Marazion. The sun came out and it was actually warm, windy and quiet on the beach apart from around 15 kiteers and 10 windsurfers enjoying the fablulous weather conditions in front of St. Michales Mount.
Wind looks good all week and sunny for most of it so get out there and enjoy it.
If you want a kitesurf lesson at marazion or Gwithian this week, we still have space at Pasty Adventures, West Cornwalls only BKSA recognised school.
