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

Lee 'Pasty' Harvey
Really pleased to see Gwithian or more specifically St Ives Bay which includes our beginner kitesurf teaching spot of Sandy Acres as well as Gwithian and the Bluff where we run more advanced coaching, has been voted the No.1 place to Kitesurf in the UK by Red Bull.
Even better is the fact that our other spot of Marazion came out at No. 3, proving that there is no better place to learn or improve your kitesurf skills than here in West Cornwall. Read the full article here-
For me Kitesurfing has always been an extension of my surfing and a means to ride waves when it's windy using the same board but just adding a kite. The amount of waves you ride and the speed you can get from the kite really helps improve your surfing due to increased time riding waves. In a single two hour kite session at Gwithian, I will probably ride 50+ waves where as when I surf I normally ride around 20. Do the maths it makes sense and the amount of extra days you get especially in Cornwall is just crazy. As well as waves kitesurfing is so much more. You can do massive jumps, throw down tricks, race or even fly above the waves on a Hydrofoil.
At Pasty Adventures we offer lessons for all levels from beginner to advanced in all disciplines. Don't delay book your Kitesurfing Lesson in Cornwall with us and open up a whole new world of pleasure.
The school is open from Easter. Detail on all our lesson are here- http://www.pastyadventures.co.uk/beginner-kitesurfing-lessons.html

Dates are now out for this autumns Kitesurf Wave Clinics at Gwithian or Marazion.
Starting off we have the Intro to Wave on Saturday 11th October. This clinic is for kiters who are new to surfboard riding and want to learn the techniques to get out there and start riding waves.
What a great Easter and start to the kitesurfing season here in Cornwall. Sunshine and wind made for great conditions for three days over the holiday period, all be it a little chilly at times.
We ran two full beginner kitesurf courses with all four people doing amazing well and getting up riding on the board.
On Easter Sunday BKSA Wave Coach, Lee 'Pasty' Harvey ran a Intro to Wave Clinic which saw novice surfboard riders learning lots to be getting on and practicing over the coming months in preperation for the autumn wave season. A big well done to everyone involved in fairly cold challenging conditons.
Overall a great weekend and we are really happy with all our new kit for the 2014 season especially the new North Evo which we are using for beginner lessons and winter wetsuits from O'Neill which kept all our students nice and warm.
With good winds forecast all week and the water much warmer than last year it looks like we are going to have a great summer for Kitesurfing in Cornwall and with Pasty Adventures being the only British Kitesports recognised school in West Cornwall there's no better place to learn.
