KITESURF COURSES

Ocean High’s success is built on providing the highest quality, internationally accredited courses to get our students riding their boards quickly and safely.

We offer 1-to-1 or 2-to-1 lessons by the hour and also ½ day, 1 day and 2 day courses. Please give us a call to discuss what would be most suitable to you.

We are now using the latest 2-way Bluetooth radio helmets from BbTALKIN that have greatly accelerated the speed of learning due to their amazing clear communication over long distance. It’s very worthwhile considering taking 1-to-1 lessons so that you can learn at your own pace. We have had great success since starting to use these helmets and have had beginners up and riding in 5-6 hours of 1-to-1 lessons. This allows shorter ‘blocks’ of lessons that can be more productive and gives you more time for your other holiday activities or family.

If you want to learn with a friend, then it can be great fun to learn together so the taster or 1 or 2 day courses may be the best option.

All equipment and wetsuits are provided by Ocean High and you will learn using the latest 2017 kites and kit from Ozone (available to buy at our own Lodey Kite Loft shop at discounted rates). Our instructors are British Kitesports Association certified and fully insured. Above all, you will have fun and will be learning at one of the UK’s most stunning kitesurfing locations, right here in Cornwall.

1/2 Day Taster (2.5 hours)
£60pp

In a packed two and a half hour session you will first get to grips with a power kite, and then as your skills, confidence and ability to both find and use the wind window develop, we progress into the shallows and onto kitesurfing kites and the exhilaration of water-based body drags, the very first step in learning to kitesurf.

We do not introduce the board at all during this taster course as you need to have more time under your belt before putting the kite and board together but getting pulled through the water behind a large kitesurf kite is a whole lot of fun!

  • Introduction to kites and equipment
  • Where to kite safely
  • Launching and landing
  • Introducing the wind window
  • Simple water-based body drags
1 Day
£100pp - 5 hours per day when with another student or 3 hours per day if 1-to-1 course

Ocean High’s 1 Day course covers all the underpinning aspects of kitesurfing such as site awareness, rigging kites, launching, landing, and basic flying skills and techniques. This course does not introduce you to the board as extra kite skills are required.

This course follows the internationally-recognised BKSA Level 1 programme.

  • Kite rigging and safety systems
  • Site assessment
  • Develop kite-handling skills
  • Controlling the kite with a harness
  • Understanding communication signals
  • Assisted launching and landing
  • Downwind, directional and up-wind body dragging in the water
  • Water re-launch

2 Day
£195pp - 5 hours per day when with another student or 3 hours per day if a 1-to-1 course

Ocean High’s 2 Day course includes all the essential kitesurfing knowledge and skills from our 1 day course with a second day that introduces you to the board and develops basic board handling and riding skills.

Day one covers all the underpinning aspects of kitesurfing such as site awareness, rigging kites, launching, landing, and basic flying skills and techniques.

The second day provides maximum water time in order to allow you to really get to grips with your first water starts and progress towards the overall goal of riding for short distances.

This course follows the internationally-recognised BKSA Level 2 programme. Once completed, additional one-to-one coaching can also be provided to progress you further.

  • Kite rigging and safety systems
  • Site assessment
  • Develop kite-handling skills
  • Controlling the kite with a harness
  • Understanding communication signals
  • Assisted launching and landing
  • Downwind, directional and up-wind body dragging in the water
  • Water re-launch
  • Self-Rescue procedures
  • Enter and exit the water whilst controlling the kite
  • Maintain correct kite position in the wind window
  • Balanced body dragging preparing for getting the board on the feet.
  • Learn the power stroke for a water-start
  • Water-start and ride a short way in both directions
  • Controlled stopping
  • Deep water Self-Rescue / Pack-down
Personal Coaching
from £30pp per hour

1 to 1 coaching – £40 per hour / £100 for three hours

Having time with your instructor on a one-to-one basis allows you to learn at your own speed and allows you to concentrate on exactly what you need to do to progress rapidly. You will not be held back by another student that may not grasp things as quickly and we can tailor the lesson to your exact requirements.

For more advanced kitesurfers it is the ideal way to focus in on specific areas of riding and often as little as an hour of instruction can save days if not weeks of frustration.

2 to 1 coaching – £30pp for one hour or £80pp for three hours

For just £30 per person per hour, learning with a friend is a great way to get into the sport or, if you are at the same level, develop your skills together. By taking it in turns and watching what your partner does will allow you to see when they do things right. More importantly, it will also show you when they go wrong and you’ll be able to see exactly what you shouldn’t do!

Such a fantastic weekend just gone of kitesurf lessons. Huge smiles all round ( cracking one from 13 year old Hugo on display here) some brilliant progression from everyone and a revelation to Howard who flew a 17m for the first time and was ripping. I love my radio helmets especially when my student can chat to his partner whilst on the water. See you all again soon for more fun.
