Get involved with one of the most exhilarating extreme sports in the world! Using a power kite,a three wheeled purpose-built cart, speeds in excess of 50mph can be reached using the power of the wind. Learning to kite buggy is actually a lot easier than you would imagine. Unlike kite landboarding where balance is essential, kite buggy is performed seated using your legs for steering and arms to control and fly the kite. Using beaches that are renowned for the consistent gust less wind received from the ocean and have miles and miles of open sand, there is no better way to learn kite buggying in the UK.
This kite buggy lesson will start with a brief introduction including safety, site assessment and the basic theory behind kite flying. It's then swiftly onto the fun part - learning to fly the kites and generating the power to get you moving in the kite buggy! After covering these kite flying skills, it's into the buggy, introducing the steering combined with the kite flying already learnt you'll soon be moving in both directions and whizzing up and down the beach in no time. Slalom courses will be introduced depending on the level achieved.
