I am pleased to announce that I have been appointed as Kitesurf Coach to the Qatar Olympic Federation as of end of march to start their youngsters on track for Olympic glory in 2020.
Flying out to Qatar for an initial 2 week coaching session straight after I return from competing in the PKRA World Tour Wave event in Dakhla, we will then have a further 6 weeks of coaching in various locations in 2014.
I am really excited about this and am really looking forward to future possibilities.

While the last month has been mostly too windy to Kitesurf in Cornwall, out here in Cape Town it has been unusually quiet on the wind front meaning we have had to hunt for other wind or wait for the SE Cape Doctor to come in late in Table View.
Still we have had some amazing sessions, check out this write up by myself and Danny Morrice along with some awesome pics from a NW day at Witsands on Kiteworld -http://www.kiteworldmag.com/features/sessions-cape-of-good-fun/

Just over a week left in South Africa now then I am off to Morocco to prepare for our upcoming Coaching Holiday in Dakhla. Still have space so don't miss out on this amazing deal contact me by email today. All details on the trip here.
We are back in Cornwall end of March after the PKRA World Tour Wave comp in Dakhla and will be open for Kitesurf Lessons as soon as conditions are good. We will also be running a Refresher and Wave Clinic at Marazion/Gwithian in April. Details will be out soon!
Take care and stay safe.

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.
Today is my first day back after 31/2 weeks away on the PKRA World Tour and what a glorious day it is. After being in the desert in Dakhla, Morrocco then the desolate landscapes of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura its so nice to wake up at home in Penzance to the sun shining, birds tweeting and all the nice flowers and plants in the garden. Looks like the surf is pumping too so going to get a Pasty and head to the beach!
We are now fully open for all lessons so please contact me for any more info by phone 07814501920 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Looks like we are going to have perfect weather for learning to kitesurf at Gwithian over the next week and we still have some spaces for courses and lessons in the afternoons so get in touch quick and put some adventure into your life.
Remember to like us on Facebook where I will be uploading all the pics from my trip and I also keep up to date reports of the conditions here in West Cornwall.
