Summer 2017 has been producing amazing conditions for kitesurfing in Cornwall.
Both Marazion and Gwithian have seen perfect flat water days as well as wave days for the more advanced riders.
We have had wind from 10 - 40 knts with an average of 5 windy days a week.
Pretty good for kitsurfing in the UK over the summer months.
Fingers crossed the conditions carry on and we have an amazing windy and wavey autumn.

Although it has been a very cold spring we have still had some amazing conditions for Learning to Kitesurf at Marazion.
Our private lessons have been very successful with the use of the new BBTalkin 2 way headsets. This has greatly improved the speed of learning and all the students that have used them have been extremely happy with some great feedback.
We are using them on all private beginner lessons and coaching sessions. Check out our full range of courses here.
This year we are also using the new North Mono 1 strut kite which has really impressed us with its ease of use and water relaunch. The light weight also means it has lots of power for its size and well as being super friendly in the small sizes. For 2016 we have the full range of North Neos, Evos and Mono kites ensuring we have the right tools for the job.
We are also pleased to now be using ION products in the school and Lee has signed on to the UK Team. Check out the full range at www.ion-products.com
With summer approaching now is the time to start getting to grips with Foiling and maximise your water time while experiencing one of the greatest thrills you can get on the water.
We are please to be one of the only fully qualified and insured kite schools in the UK to teach Kite Foiling and with Marazion and Mounts Bay we have one of the greatest locations for Hydrofoiling in the World. Check out our Foil lesson packages here

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 ;)

Lee 'Pasty' Harvey
Our recent Intermediate Twin Tip kitesurfing clinic with BKSA Coach, Lee Harvey ran on sunday 14th april at Marazion in a chilly but sunny south easterly wind.
Despite the wind playing games, meaning we had to change kites half way through, the 4 guys all learnt lots to push their kitesurfing level upwards over the coming months.
Starting off with on land demos we looked at; riding toeside, jumps, pop, and backrolls. We then progressed onto on water demos on each segment before the guys took on the moves themselves.
Below is a little video of the clinic.
Next Intermediate clinic is planned for Sat 24th June. Details on the clinic page
Feedback from the guys-
'The best thing about it for me was it gave me more confidence to just 'have a go' and try some new moves, rather than doing the same thing.'
'Didn't have any expectations as I've never had lessons or coaching before. It was good to see what it like, I thought it was good value and would do it agian.'
'I think it did what it was meant to for all of us and give more knowledge to help move our kiting on over the summer.'
