We are very fortunate to have a wide selection of kitesurf beaches available in the local area.
Our home spot is Pevensey Bay and this is where we will try to run the majority of our lessons from, however If the wind direction/wind speed is better at a different beach then we will drive to that location. Therefore we are able to provide you with the best conditions on the day in order to maximise progression!
Our locations include: Pevensey Bay, Cooden Beach, Winchelsea, Greatstone
