A great introduction to the amazing sport of Kitesurfing / Landboarding / Snowkiting



There is an instant rush from flying kites around the skies, or scudding (sliding on your feet) along by the traction of the wind. In this intro kitesurf lesson, we will give all the coaching needed to fly the kites, and will try to get you flying a selection of kites depending on wind conditions, as they all have different abilities / behaviours.

This lesson is land based and designed to cover the first stages of your entry into this amazing sport and help massively when you progress further on into the water.

Welcome to the exhilarating world of kitesurfing with Blast Kiteboarding in the stunning coastal town of Porthcawl, South Wales! In this introductory lesson, we'll focus on the fundamentals of kitesurfing, specifically on land, setting the stage for your exciting journey into the sport.

Our instructors will walk you through the basics, explaining the purpose and function of each piece to ensure you feel confident with the gear.

4. Kite Setup and Control on Land: Learn the ropes, or rather, the lines! Discover how to set up the kite on the land and master basic kite control. Feel the power of the wind as you navigate the kite through the air, understanding its behavior within the wind window. This hands-on experience builds the foundation for future water-based adventures.

5. Understanding Wind Window: The wind window is your canvas in kitesurfing. Our instructors will introduce you to the concept, explaining how the wind window influences kite control. This knowledge is essential for effectively harnessing the wind's power during your kitesurfing journey.
