After thinking about it for years I finally started kite surfing in the summer of 2017. As an experienced surfer who had done some wind surfing as a kid, I thought kiting would be a good way to have some fun in the water when the surf wasn't so good. Turns out it's now my favorite water sport and I just wish I'd got into it years ago. It's quite a difficult sport to get started with and lessons really are essential - not just to speed up your progression but to do so safely.

Blast seemed like the best place to learn locally (SE wales) for a number of reasons; Marc & Sarah's abilities being very well proven in British championship competitions, the forum on the blast website seemed to be the main online presence of local kite surfers and they had an offer where the cost of 2 days' lessons would be deducted from any kite/board package you later bought from them.

Having gone through my lessons, got all my own kit and spent a lot of time on the water over the last 6 months I'm really glad that I did choose blast:
- The lessons were excellent as was the advice I've received on all sorts of kite gear (plus I'm still getting invaluable tips as they watch me trying to progress by myself). 
- The prices on kit is similar to anywhere online (and often can't be beaten) but with the kind of service you could only get from a local store (Marc's even brought bits I've bought with him to the beach so I could use them right away). I've also been advised to buy products which were both more suitable and cheaper than those I'd asked for.
- Blast really is core to the kite surfing scene in this area and has definitely helped me feel a part of the community more rapidly than I would have done otherwise.
- The trips abroad that blast organise look awesome and I hope to go on one someday - and when I do that I'll likely already know some of my co-travellers via blast.

So, obviously, I'd highly recommend both the sport and blast for your lessons/gear. This probably all reads like a gushing review (I'm not on commission, honest!) but I really do have no complaints and feel lucky to have blast in my area. I think it would be well worth traveling here if you're further afield, and I know many people do just that.


*There is a two year time limit on all lessons booked

2 Day Kite Lesson
Booked a 2-day course with the guys from Blast and they did not disappoint - first class instruction from Marc and Richie, with sessions jam packed full of hints, tips and fables. Can't wait for some wind now to try the new kite!
Review by K1tesurfers / (Posted on 09/06/2019)
I'd been thinking of giving kite surfing a go for a good few years but your videos being shared on facebook the last year or so made me think about it a bit more seriously. I then saw this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hNNjzhQF9k&t=41s) and, despite the fact that there is not a single kite in it, I immediately decided that if I was going to learn it would be with blast. It prompted me to look into both the sport and blast further and, partially thanks to your website, it wasn't long before I decided I needed to learn ASAP (and then, naturally, before I could do so I buggered my knee and broke my hand in quick succession :lol: MTB/BMX)

The reason that video had such an effect was that I connected with it more than the kite surfing vids I'd seen (in fact, right up until I was up and riding, I was only interested in kite surfing as a vaguely fun way to get in the water between good surf). It showed great appreciation of a place I love as well as for waves and wave riding. I felt very authentic, made by someone wanting to show the beauty of porthcawl/the sea and not by someone purely trying to drive traffic to their business via social media, just because that's what everyone else does these days. Watching it again today, it still evokes a strong response - I want to be out in that water right now!

No idea how much of this translates to other people, but you certainly hit the nail on the head with that video as far as I was concerned and I hope that's in some way helpful feedback.

Stop thinking about it, just do it
I have been kiting for about 7 years now but have never tried kitesurfing. After seeing some kitesurfers on the water and watching lots of videos i decided to book the 2 day course. Even though i had flown kites before i found the day 1 intro very interesting and learnt many things, it was a lot of fun body dragging upwind. On the second day i tried my first board starts which is a lot harder than it looks! but i really enjoyed the challenge, when i finally got up for about 5 seconds it was one of the best kiting moments i have ever had. Both Marc and Sarah are great instructors being patient and encouraging. I felt very safe when out of the water and was not pushed out of my comfort zone. I will defiantly continue this amazing sport.

“Kite Surf Lessons 2 Day Course South Wales Porthcawl - Superb tuition, Awesome Location and Fantastic Modern Kit”
I booked the two day learn to kite course. It was awesome from beginning to end. I have wanted to learn to kite for many years but struggled to find the time and if I'm honest the GUTS ! Marc was a brilliant patient instructor who made sure I stayed in my comfort zone which enabled me to gain confidence and make good progression. I had both days of the course at Coney Beach in Porthcawl which is a lovely big sandy beach with shallow water to learn in at low tide and plenty of room. It was an absolute pleasure to meet the other kite surfers who made me feel very welcome that were out at Coney - many of which have been taught by Blast. I now can't wait to continue my lessons and become good enough to go on one of Blasts Holidays !!

You'd be silly not to!
I took my 2 day lesson in September as I wanted to be sure I would enjoy the sport before investing in the gear. It was the best thing I did, not only did I get top quality instruction on safety, kite flying and board starts, I also got a great welcome into a growing community of kitesurfers. Amazing when you consider that with the money off your gear deal it's FREE!

Top experience.
Great coaches and a positive experience. I previously had lessons about 4 years ago, but had a bad experience with a grumpy instructor who just wanted my money. Thought would give it another go and found Blast just over the bridge from Bristol.
What a difference. Marc is passionate and easy to get on with. He has plenty of enthusiasm and as well as getting the instruction across, knows how to motivate and bring you along.
If you are thinking of taking up the sport, then look no further than Blast :) Worth travelling for.
I have bought a package (Epic) and was given impartial advice from Marc. One my first visit he introduced my to other kite surfers "to keep an eye on me". Cant get better than that. Just wish my shifts coincide with the wind and i started earlier in the year.

Impeccable Service
I had been thinking for ages to learn how to kitesurf being a passionate snowboarder, surfer and wakeboarder together with the standard on shore winds, I was missing my fix when I couldn't go surfing - so I booked a two day course with Marc and Sarah, best decision I'd made!

Absolute professionalism shown throughout the 2 days but kept fun for maximum engagement!

The stories Marc has will keep you on your toes :) The after sales service is impeccable also, helping you find correct kit for you and your riding ability together with further tips, they kindly welcome you to join them to practice what you've learnt when they head down to the beach & make sure you are in a safe environment practicing what you have learnt on the course.

Great community of new people to meet, I highly recommend Blast Kiteboarding!
Get on board!

What a Blast!
After trying to kite surf under the instruction of my novice boyfriend (and getting in trouble with the coastguard!), I decided to get some instruction from people who knew what they were doing. This is definitely what I got from Blast! At the start of the course, I was very nervous about kitesurfing, as I had begun to hear about how dangerous kitesurfing would be - and after my run in with the coastguard, I was beginning to wonder if I was silly to try kitesurfing at all! However, my instructor, Marc, immediately put me at ease with his great knowledge and experience. He was extremely friendly, fun and enthusiastic about teaching our group. The group was very small, and so there was lots of opportunity for 1-1 teaching. Marc was very good at noticing when we were struggling slightly with an exercise, giving us individualised teaching, and praising us when we had adequately perfected the exercise. He also taught us some theory about the power window, tides, etc, giving me a greater depth of understanding of what environmental aspects to look out for when kitesurfing. After the 2 days, I left feeling far more confident, and excited to get back into the water.

Thanks to all the Blast team for making this such a pleasant experience.

Back soon for more
Just a very quick post to recommend Blast Kiteboarding and thank them for their time, patience and good humour this week.

I decided to learn another kite skill and booked a 2 day course via the Blast website, I waited until the last minute to ensure wind direction and good winds.

I ended up with sunshine, warm water and great winds . The kites supplied were this years Epic Renegade 5G kites, and they are easy to fly and stable for novices but are capable kites producing a smooth power build when worked, I guess you could call them progressive.

We flew at Aberavon and it must be the least time I have had to travel to get to a flying zone, the set up area was I guess was within 300 meters of the road, the beach was very clean and free of debris.

Thanks to Marc, Richie and Tom I had a couple of fantastic days learning the basics.

I can’t recommend Blasts Kiteboarding enough to you all, its owned and run by enthusiasts who not only give their students time and attention but are quick to help other fliers on the beach with hints and tips to enable them to progress or nail the trick.

Thanks all, I will definitely be back.

A great introduction
I booked up for the two day course as I'd thought about trying kitesurfing for a while. The safety side of things was well explained before getting onto the beach with a small kite for some static flying. Then it was time to up the game a little and get into the water. The body dragging exercises went well and by the end I felt confident that I'd be back for more (with my own kit this time)
Marc is a great tutor with a true passion for the sport and I'm looking forward to getting back in the water to build on the skills I've already picked up.
To anyone thinking about giving this a go I'd say JUST DO IT!!
You'll be back for more in no time. Review by Mickey / (Posted on 15/04/2015)
I bought the two day package in January 2015 and have gone from only a basic understanding of the sport (I already surf) to riding myself by the end of the 2nd day. My lessons were split by a week or so due to the variable winter winds but that didn't effect my progress thanks to Marc's enthusiasm and hands on approach to tuition. The equipment Blast provides is all top quality and I felt safe and fully supported throughout my lessons.

Since my lessons, I have made use of the offer that Blast have on buying a kite package so have bought my own Epic Renegade 11m and Blankforce Logic. I've also joined the forum and plan on fully embracing the community spirit on the South Wales coast that Blast have created; which I saw during my lessons with lots of people coming up to introduce themselves, help with kite launching and general hints and tips. And as Marc says, the lessons are just the introduction, they'll always be around to help at the beach if I get into any issues or beginner bad practice.

Fantastic experience - highly recommended
Bought the two day Blast tuition package during 2014. I found the good folk at Blast very knowledgeable, their focus on safety first and foremost during each activity very reassuring.
The "school" equipment was well maintained and in very good condition. I found the tuition was tailored to my needs / ability and utilised a very hands on "explain, show and do" approach. The course covered all key stages - beach, environment and conditions awareness and how to stay safe, kite design, kite rigging, kite care, kite flying, kite launching and recovery, water based kite flying, body dragging and finally basic board starting techniques.

The help, support and guidance did not end at the end of the two days - The Blast team have continued on every occasion we have been on the beach together to offer support, guidance and tips.

I am looking forwards to seeing my daughter complete this course this summer.
